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!

When I started working with Shannon I was struggling with deep unhappiness and uncertainty about my life, as well as my relationships with the people in my life. I was skeptical of talking to anyone because of several prior bad experiences with counselors and psychiatrists. But I called anyway out of desperation and I'm very glad in retrospect that I did. Shannon helped me consciously identify things that are important to me and things I wanted to change. With Shannon I learned to proactively become aware of and eliminate negative, harmful, or just plain not useful patterns of thinking and instead treat myself using positive reinforcement. These changes seems small and simple but their impact is deep. I also benefited from her wise perspective on managing relationships with others. By using what I've worked on with Shannon, I feel more clear, capable, reflective, and self-aware. This in turn has helped me focus, enjoy my work, and improve how I view my relationships with my family and coworkers. I'm all around much happier and proud of myself. In working with Shannon, I was impressed by her kindness, her breadth of understanding, her proactive approach, and her focus on ensuring her clients improve in a quantifiable, verifiable way. I would and do recommend her to anyone looking for guidance through rough times, especially if you're looking for quick and concrete practices to implement to improve your life immediately.

About

I offer one-on-one career transition/outplacement counseling including the following: * Asset analysis/career and goals assessment * Resume writing and editing * One-on-one counseling * Personal marketing strategies * Job search work flow and process training * Career and personal networking training * Communications and self-presentation evaluations and enhancement coaching (interview coaching and preparation) * Follow-up and support throughout I have spent over 15 years as a senior executive recruiter in the Silicon Valley where I have counseled and coached literally thousands of candidates and executive-level clients through their own career challenges. My own career has taken me from blue collar in the early '80s to white collar sales and consulting in the late '80s, moving into business management in the early '90s, and business ownership in the late '90s. The latter part of my career has seen me transition from sales manager to managing partner to V.P. to C.O.O, and even co-found a company and ownership, where I have been a vendor to a number of Fortune 500 companies such as Cisco, Sun Microsystems, Wells Fargo, etc. Every stage is wrought with unknown factors which can be scary, but if you replace fear and uncertainty with enthusiasm about the possibilities, times of transition can be acknowledged as the greatest opportunities for growth, and forward progress on your own career. I now work with both individuals and corporate clients alike as a career transition counselor, helping others to move in a positive direction towards the next phase of their own careers. Call me, and let's work together to prepare you for the opportunities that lay before you. Mark Fort

Illana was wonderful! She listened to our requests, and wrote a ceremony that fits us perfectly! Our wedding was romantic, spiritual, and incorporated our beliefs and showcased our love for each other. Illana included our friends and family in the ceremony -- everyone played a part. It was wonderful to work with Illana! We highly recommend her as an officiant and counselor!

I love her so much that I refer her to all my friends and family. If you want your relationship to make sense I strongly reccommend talking to her." ~ Richelle Jernigan

I help people with depression, addictions/compulsions, anxiety, relationship problems, and many more issues. I have 36 years of experience. It's easy to talk to me whether you are 18 or 80. I feel great compassion for my clients and at the same time I trust that with a little help from me, they can help themselves. My sessions are 50 minutes long. In the beginning of therapy I recommend that you meet with me 1-2 times a week.

Pastor Mike has amazing skills as a counselor. He brings his many years of experience as a pastor and leader to the table with each session. He listens with empathy and compassion and has a true gift of wisdom. Mike is able to challenge when needed, while remaining encouraging and uplifting in his approach. His thoughtful insights often bring clarity and understanding when we have felt stuck or unsure. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking to improve their relationships and/or marriage.
