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!
Debi has been working with me for many years and has proved herself to be an extremely knowledgeable and intuitive counselor. She has helped me through many life crises with her professional and personal insights as well as her compassion. I would highly recommend Debi to anyone seeking a wise and nuturing counselor.
She really cared about us and our marriage. Ama spent the time to understand our relationship and our goals, and created a program and service that were uniquely ours.
An unexpected death in the family upended a number of things in my life. I needed some guidance to get back on track to run my business and tackle the new personal challenges I was facing. I was working with another counselor for a few months but did not find much value in my sessions. My wife found Karim so I decided to try one session. Needless to say, I really enjoyed Karim's approach. Karim has acted like a guide to help me identify, process and work on my challenges. I enjoyed his help so much that I also paid to attend a couple of the workshops he hosts outside of regular hours from time to time. I highly recommend talking to Karim at least once and see how you feel. Chances are, you will want to work with him.
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.
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.
Lisa helped me uncover and take action on my life vision. Every area of my life has seen big changes in alignment with that vision. Ive strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company Im passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisas approach is no nonsense and honest. She has an amazing way of keeping you focused on your dream, one step at a time next thing you know youre living it.
A great experience. We recommend Krista to anyone who's looking for Marriage and Family Therapy services.
We decided to try Connect2 Marriage as an engagement encounter and we've loved it. We would strongly recommend them.
Listen really good about our problems. And gives good advice on how to moved forward in life about our marriage.
I have known Melissa a long time and she is one of the best therapists that I have worked with. She is patient, understanding, and is a great listener. Melissa is highly skilled and has been able to help me work through a variety of issues. She has a clear passion for her career and truly cares about each of her clients. If you are looking for a therapist, look no further. I absolutely recommend giving her a call!
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.
Robert is an excellent therapist. He is always professional and dependable. I will most definitely use his services again. I found him extremely helpful.
Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!
Alison is amazing! The most important things I look for in a counselor is someone who is well educated, practices what they teach and is compassionate with their clients. Alison is all of the above, she really knows her stuff, I feel safe and well attended to when she works with me and she gives me undivided attention which I always appreciate. She has an amazing way of working on emotional issues that could be holding you back from making progress in your life. She has a deep understanding of what it takes to heal and clear old material that is no longer relevant to living your best life and she guides you in a way that is kind, loving and safe. I honor her so much and feel so grateful to have her in my life!
