From the moment that Dr. Ira reached out to me to the time we finally met; I felt that we were in the hands of an apt therapist, caring and understanding individual and a sincere spiritual leader. After one session he had myself and my significant other reconsidering the past behaviors that necessitated the need for counseling to begin with. I am hopeful, that with hard work on our end, that we can realign our goals, priorities and values to lead us to a happy marriage.

I have known Annette for over 10 years and I can honestly say she is one of the most inspirational women I have come across in my life. She has her eyes and heart set on the Lord and she never fails in her endeavor to uplift those around her. As a mother, author, and friend, I know that each person in her life is grateful to have come across such a light in these dark times. When I am having a bad day, an update from Annette will remind me why God is good and of his abundant blessings in store for me. I know that whatever ministry God has called for her, that she will take and make grow to the fullest. She is a breath of fresh air.

I personally did not meet with JD, but made an appointment for a family member. I don't have the words to express my feeling for how great JD is. He helped my family member in a way that has and will change his life for the better. He took the time to understand him and his problems, and guided him in such a humble and wise manner. And this was just in one sitting, It's truly amazing !!!! He is a good soul who isn't powered by money...he just wants to help. Other therapist that we have seen, are geared by money, time, prorated rates if you go over their time. But not in this case, GOD BLESS you always, and we will be grateful to you always.

We became acquainted with John about 6 years, while attending the church he had come to Pastor. When our family went through an especially horrific tragedy we found John to be especially sensitive to our needs. One of our son-in-laws had committed suicide. John was supportive of us and our adult children and grandchildren. Our oldest daughter (46) was especially appreciative of John's insight into her guilt and anger. He was able to help her accept her feeling honestly and begin to heal. This happened when he was no longer our Pastor. I believe he met with our whole family several times, and with our daughter alone only once. I'd say he went above and beyond because he came to our home very late one night and also spent a Sunday morning with us helping us process what had happened. We found John to be extremely professional, but were mostly touched by John's love of people and his compassionate heart. We believe him to be a man of deep,faith, full of wisdom and discernment, with great empathy, and a God-given ability to comfort, encourage and challenge those who seek his counsel. We really couldn't think of anything John could have done differently or better in his service to us.

I am a master web designer and Marketing specialist who has worked with many companies in the business world. Most of which seem to be concerned more with the value in the consumer wallet than the value of there own product/service. My honest review & experience with Sharon is the complete opposite of that. She really invests her time, life skill essentials, and biblical knowledge into her clients to pin-pointing the roots behind the problem and then confidently advising a step by step strategy to help your resolve. Her words are powerful, encouraging and can even make you laugh at yourself which is medicine to the soul. She indeed earns the title hands down as an A+ Life Coach because the shoe fits.

Leeanne is the most awesome Practioner I have ever worked with, I saw her for brain mapping and neuro feedback at Sovereign Health, but she always gave much more than that in her caring, compassionate, and insightful response to my questions about my mental illness. I've never had a therapist who was so well informed, with so much scientific data to back up her work and recommendation. not only did she help me she read me like a book without judgement, and made me feel loved , lovable, and set me on the right path to recovery with her recommendations. I will forever be grateful for having known her and being one of her clients.

Life is full of challenges, expected and unexpected. Sometimes, it can be stressful, overwhelming, and even confusing to sort things out alone, and when we are stressed out, sometimes we are prone to illness. With a gentle, compassionate and supportive approach, I am committed to guiding my clients reach their potentials and strengths. I teach clients relaxation and breathing techniques, so that they are capable of dealing with stress and anxiety effectively. Anxious clients have the tendency to focus on the future; therefore, I help my clients get in touch with their inner resources and live in the here and now. The more stressed out and anxious clients are, the more tendency there is for them to get sick. I assist them to decrease their stress level and physical symptoms by teaching them stress management and time management. I also use hypnosis to reduce illness and promote relaxation. I work with individuals (from young children to teenagers to adults) who are facing a variety of issues, including: identity issues, self-esteem, sadness and depression, anxiety and managing stress, using self-control, expressing feelings and more. Working with young children requires special skills because young children do not have the same communication skills or vocabularies as adults have. By using artwork and sand tray, I assist young children who have different problems including depression, ADHD/ADD, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, defiant, temper tantrums, bed wetting and social and school problems. I also teach parents effective tools to discipline and raise responsible children. You may wonder why your teenager sometimes feels there is no way out! During teen years, when teenagers are hurtling through intense physical and emotional changes, mood swings are typical. More often, parents feel frustrated when their teens go through drastic mood swings. I help my clients express their sadness in a healthy way. I assess for suicidal thoughts and suicidal attempts. I assist clients identify their negative thoughts and help them tap into their inner resources by using guided imagery and hypnosis. In addition, I give them daily homework to lessen their depression and increase their self-esteem, self-worth and self-image.
