I hired Dr. Ira L. Lake on the advice of a friend who was at a wedding where he officiated. My best friend said to me it would be a mistake on my part if I didn't hire him as my wedding officiant. Right from the start in our initial meeting we hit it off as he made me feel comfortable with his down to earth and yet outgoing personality. This was my first marriage and so I didn't know much about how to go about planning a wedding ceremony. But Dr. Lake explained and outlined for me how a traditional wedding ceremony would look and even recommended a florist and photographer that he knew. He even suggested several potential venues to host the wedding ceremony. At the end of our initial meeting I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders. Dr. Lake assured me that he would be available to answer any and all of the questions I might have with regards to planning the ceremony up until the ceremony itself. I must have called or texted Dr. Lake 10 times and each time he responded to me in a timely manner. Then the day of my wedding came. I was a nervous mess. Dr. Lake showed up an hour early for the ceremony. He visited me in my dressing room and immediately made me feel at ease. Even my bridesmaid commented on his calming influence on me after he left the room. Words cannot adequately describe the beautiful ceremony he conducted. His words were clear and meaningful with regards to how to build a great and successful marriage. His easy to understand message and great sense of humor had the majority of the guest I talked too wishing that he had been the officiant for their weddings. Dr. Lake stayed until after the wedding photos were taken mingling with the guests and making everyone feel warm, accepted, and comfortable. For anyone out there looking for a wedding officiant PLEASE don't hesitate to contact and hire Dr. Ira L. Lake. His fee was well below what I thought I would be paying and his service was even more that what I expected to receive. One last note: He offered in his initial quote to me one free counseling session for me and my fiancé. We took him up on it and my finance and I were truly blessed by what he shared and challenged us with in counseling. Dr. Ira will be our counselor moving forward should our marriage get off track from time to time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Ira L. Lake
Our first time experiencing marriage counseling. With just our first session we've learned so much. Michelle explains everything so well from a man and woman's point of view. Really looking forward to our sessions with her.
Helped with Relationship Counseling. My girl friend and I were going through a difficult time. We heard from others about the benefit of choosing a life coach over a MFT or a Psychologist. Our problems were communication about here and now. We didn't want to have to spend so much time individually sitting in "couch therapy " with a psychologist. Patti gets right to the underline issues. Her experience in this field is second to none. Our relationship including that of our teenage children that each of us has from our previous marriages has gotten so much better. Everyone in our family has benefited from we call her " our life coach" She is so easy to talk to. My fear and anxiety trusting to talk to someone with our issues went away the moment we met her. Our relationship has never been better thanks to Patti
We couldn't possibly praise our experience with WIll highly enough! Will has tremendous wisdom and insight. He has a revolutionary approach to marriage counseling!
I had an excellent experience in my counseling session with Diana R Briscoe in South Pasadena. She brings key insights into her guided hypnotherapy, which helped me onto a path of clarity as to my own life goals and a welcome opportunity to understand and narrate my life for others. Gentle and intuitive, that's Diana Briscoe!
Murray was very experienced and professional with helping my husband and I get a better understanding of one another. Our relationship was strained over the course of several disagreements on key topics, but Murray helped provide us with some simple but powerful tools in order to work out our problems as a couple. His guidance and fair approach made sure we were both comfortable in speaking our mind. We were able to rebuild trust and repair the damaged foundation of our marriage at the end of Murray's counseling sessions. We would not hesitate to recommend him to a close friend if we saw they were having similar issues.
She is a very good therapist and I have referred many of my friends to her. She helps you see things in a different way and guides you to make good choices.
Great experience. He is easy to work with. The vows he provided were perfect and explained exactly how my husband and I felt towards each other. Very romantic ceremony. Would definitely recommend.
Randy Moraitis has been my coach and a friend for the past five or six years. As the director of operations in the organization, I was privileged to work with him and found him to have insight and wisdom needed for the position that I was in. Since leaving that organization, I have sought Randy out a number of times to assist me in situations that I had not encountered before and have always appreciate his insight and suggestions. Randy is an individual who will go above and beyond where many others would not. Randy takes the time to listen and understand where someone is needing change and in those confidential moments will guide that person to see the strengths they have and how to move in the direction they want to go. Randy is intelligent not only in the sense of his training but in his life experience as well and as such has helped me and others, to navigate the transition that was needed. From the very first conversation an individual will feel comfortable with Randy and will feel empowered to take the next indicated step necessary for the goal that is desired. Randy is an incredibly professional and skilled coach dedicated to helping people create the lives that they want. As he very well knows, no two individuals will travel the same road and through his use of questions, insight, perspective and authenthic listening skills he has helped me, and others, to answer difficult questions that I could not answer on my own. Randys straightforward approach is direct, professional and empowering. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to remove the obstacles and find direction on how to move forward.
