Pastor Clark was a warm and sincere person to work with during our planning and the day of our marriage. He really put a lot of thought into our wedding ceremony and made us feel as if we were the only two people he was working with. We were impressed by his sincerity and the time he spent getting to know us. He provided us with a beautiful copy of the ceremony and we truly appreciated his thoughtfulness every step of the way. Thank you, Pastor Clark.

When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!

Maureen worked with me following the birth of my second child, dealing initially with post partum issues and then with a broader range of issues related to marriage, family relationships, and parenting struggles, and attitudes toward self-care. I have been very happy with our sessions because overtime I have felt them to be very productive. Maureen listens well, and seems to digest and then provide very useful, practical, concrete ideas and steps to take to deal with real situations as they arise. She also helps me work through more general attitudes and ideas regarding challenges in my life.

Arya is one of the most gifted guided counselors I’ve ever met. His astute awareness to key into what’s being spoken and what’s beneath the words is one of the things that make him such an effective marriage and relationship counselor. He has a gentle way of showing you the way to your truth by asking the right questions or roleplaying with yourself or your partner. His process is nonintimidating and creative which is especially helpful under the circumstances of dealing with years of sensitive issues. My boyfriend and I were at a crossroad of parting ways when we took the leap to try couples counseling and coaching instead of psychotherapy. The results of our time invested with Arya have made us whole again and more in love than ever before. Thank you Arya! You are one of a kind! Nancy

Found the site user-friendly. Was very happy to be contacted by 2 professionals pretty quickly after my request. Found Dr. Spring to be very well-qualified and his willingness to work with our schedule and get us in asap! Our marriage is in an extremely fragile state, and after meeting with Dr. Spring for 50 minutes, we seemed to be able to get back on track and get to the nitty-gritty of our core issues. So far, have had 2 sessions, and we are very pleased with the quality of the professionals, with Dr. Spring, and with our progress in our relationship. Thank you!!

Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

Jeff is a gifted and natural born counselor and conflict mediator. He has helped me so much in gaining clarity around my own emotional process, allowing me to peel back the layers of my understanding to learn what my deepest needs are. In the time that he’s been practicing, I’ve watched him explode fully into this role, gain insight and clarity into his own life, and develop a strong desire to share it with the world. Know that your sessions with him will be rooted in that deep sense of passion and love for this practice. It starts with a series of exercises in self connection. The objective here is, “In order to know how to resolve my own conflict, I need to understand the underlying needs of where they are coming from.” This is where Jeff is truly gifted, in asking the right questions, employing deep listening and empathy to help you discover what those needs are. He doesn't push you in any one direction, but rather he is trained in employing tools to help you understand for yourself what you are truly needing underneath all the muck that might be clouding your judgement. For example, I had a difficult decision about which job to take when I was offered two. We sat and had a moment of self-connection, during which we identified what my feelings were. Then, looking at each feeling, we identified the underlying need that was there, talking through ideas such as, "I feel this way, what am I needing that I am or am not getting?" After that, we determined was truly important to me based on each of those needs. I learned that one job would offer me security and safety, and the other would offer me creativity and freedom. Based on where I was at that point in my life, my need for creativity was far stronger than my need for safety. I was able to arrive at a solution that left me feeling empowered, because I had come to my own determination of what I wanted and had solid reasons for justifying them. I picked the creative job, and to this day I am extremely grateful that I made that choice! I now use these tools whenever I face a conflict with others, and especially as a tool for internal conflict mediation. For me, this process has felt like turning on a light switch, and the sense of relief that has come with this has been invaluable. He has incredible intuition, endless patience and compassion for this practice. He’s worked not only with me about my own individual processes, but he’s also worked with me in employing this practice as it relates to my boss, my peers, and my relationship. I can’t recommend Jeff enough for sharing these incredibly valuable life skills.
