I began seeing Danielle about 2 years ago. I was confused and unfocused. My 30 year marriage and friendships were faltering. I was sad, angry and depressed. Daniele helped me to find my inner strength, to harness my creativity and fill my life with positivity. I've learned that I deserve to dream big for myself. It's my extraordinary life and my husband and friends have joined me for the ride. Danielle also taught me how to communicate my feelings in an assertive gentle way. I am having fun again and although I have low moments, I now have the tools to tap into my joy, quickly. It's is a couple breaths away at all times!

I am so grateful for the years of coaching and support I've received from Danielle! She has helped me create a deeper, more intimate relationship with my husband and has helped me build greater confidence in myself so I can take bold, exciting risks in my business. Her style is compassionate, yet powerful. I always look forward to our weekly Skype sessions. Thank you so much, Danielle, for your inspired coaching!

Danielle is so present and aware that I can just relax into her coaching. She allows me to find my way by directing to me to my inner experience so I can have profound breakthroughs over and over. She also sets an amazing example of a divine union in her own relationship that continually inspires me. Thanks Danielle! Lorraine Platt, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Shannon has a rare gift as a counselor as she is able to combine good practical advice with an empathic, sensitive presence. She combines a scientific and intuitive approach in her work. Her use of metrics to provide demonstrable results provides an experimental and empirical grounding to counseling that is rarely found in the field. She has a knowledge of the lifestyle factors that lead to anxiety and depression such as diet and sleep as well as the ability to use techniques such as Internal Family Systems to work with parts of the psyche. I chose to work with Shannon at a difficult time in my life because I felt that her compassion combined with her intuitive skills would be able to help me and help me quickly. I am a therapist myself and I am very choosy in who I work with. I have also referred people to Shannon for that reason. I would definitely recommend her services.

Scientifically grounded. Emotionally intelligent. Shannon helped me get unstuck. Seeing any counselor at all was a big deal for me. I had bad experiences with them in the past. Not only was she able to put me at ease, not only was her advice concrete and useful, she helped me explore my concerns in a way that was as stunning as it was fun. It was more helpful, more quickly, and more enjoyably than any other counseling experience I've ever had.

Lisa's coaching is effective in so many ways -- she teaches me to let go of activities I don't truly enjoy so I have more energy for what I do enjoy. She refuses to let me stay feeling powerless or resentful. She demonstrates that when I feel good, my life goes well. It just takes way too much energy to hate my job or my life. So now I love my life, I'm in love with an amazing man (whom I never would have attracted before I started working with Lisa) and I feel closer to my friends and family than ever before. Lisa is like a best friend who really cares about me. But instead of colluding and agreeing with me, she is honest and straightforward. She challenges my negative beliefs and has amazingly helpful insights. We have a lot of laughs and we do a lot of good work together. I would advise you to call her today. DON'T DELAY!!!!

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. I’ve strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company I’m passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisa’s 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 you’re living it.

Words cannot express how very pivotal Lisa has been in both my business and in my personal life. She has insights that can only come from an old soul. Yet she helps keep everything fresh and in the moment. She helps me stay focused and unafraid of anything that comes my way. In fact I feel like I can forge ahead and stay positive and filled with enthusiasm. Outstanding clarity and always relevant and even inspired.

I am the mother of a child with Attention Deficit Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. As a parent, we think that we are always equipped to deal with whatever comes our way, but in my case, I lost my direction. I became overwhelmed with the fear, upset and frustration associated with the behavior and diagnosis of my son. I found Deb and am so very grateful that I did. She cleared the fog, and allowed me to see the things I needed to in order to move forward in a positive direction, and enable me to listen and understand my son without the anger associated with each interaction. Debi didn't lecture me... she listened, she empathized, she shared, but most of all she empowered me to understand that I do have control of my relationship with my son, this diagnosis and my life. With her guidance, humor, knowledge and her genuine concern, my vision is now clear, and I am forever grateful.

The thing that I appreciate most about Debi is her enthusiasm for helping others. Her energy as a therapist is amazing! She listens to what I say and discusses things in such a way to give me a deeper understanding of myself. Debi helped me move towards my goals and clear old "baggage" holding me back. While she is very compassionate, she has helped me gain clarity through my natural wisdom with honest non-judgmental feedback. This has given me much peace and a better understanding of my life. This is something that you can't put a price on. What a great massage therapist does for your body, Debi does for your mind and soul.

Debi has been working with me for many years and has proved herself to be an extremely knowledgeable and intuitive counselor.

I have had two sessions with Judy and both were amazing!! She is a sincere, heart-centered reader. Each session provided information that helped confirm for me different aspects of my life patterns. She has taught a number of different healing modalities as well as palmistry and is a multi-faceted spirit. We ended the session with her assessment of what flower essences would be helpful and she custom-blended a bottle for me. If you are being nudged to learn the ancient wisdom of reading palms, or would simply like some information that will help you along your path, I highly recommended Judy. She is gifted, sincere and will make sure you completely understand your reading or the course you are undertaking. Debbie

I met Judy 19 years ago attending an intensive for Hand Analysis. Of all the people in our group Judy displayed the characteristics of a reader I would go to...kindness, humbleness, intuitiveness, and highly intelligent. It is no surprise that she has continued to share her gifts of reading hands and teaching it to others. If you want an in-depth analysis of your delicious dilemma (what you keep stubbing your toes on), Judy will lead you to a better understanding of the contrast's that create those same scenarios. I highly recommend Judy even if you have no dilemmas in your life. You may walk away discovering gifts you did know you possessed! Bonnie

Having Judy read my palms was a very interesting and enlightening experience. I was shocked by the accuracy of the information she found in my palm. What she told was a veritable reflection of the different paths my life has followed. I would recommend Judy very highly to anyone who would like to have this information. She is a very sweet, understanding and knowledgeable person.

Dr. Lopes has been my therapist on and off over the past 5 years. She had helped me overcome my depression and anxiety, and eventually helped me through a very difficult divorce. I can truly say that with Dr. Lopes's help I have been able to turn my life around. I feel blessed to have a friend refer me to her and I do not hesitate to recommend her to others who are struggling and need unconditional support and guidance... She really cares about her clients, no exceptions.

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!!

Pastor Ama Zenya is a true blessing. She brought joy, warmth, love, happiness, and beautiful light to our wedding. We felt so secure with her as our officiant. She provided us with the comfort to be present in every moment of our ceremony and feel all the love and support that was with us to celebrate our union. She met with us several months before our wedding to get to know us, both our individual personalities and our personality as a couple. She understood well what our wishes were and tailored the ceremony perfectly to meet our needs and include family traditions. She was very responsive, patient, gentle and kind with any questions we had. She was also very active in helping with details regarding the ceremony, and was very prompt with the official paperwork, as well as helping us rehearse our vows. There aren't enough words to describe how grateful we are to have had her as our officiant. We would highly recommend Pastor Ama Zenya to other couples looking for an officiant who will work with you to create a beautiful ceremony filled with love and tailored to your relationship.

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!

About

I work with individuals to live and relate authentically and giving consideration to their individual capabilities and intents. Too often the desire for change comes as a reaction to a dissatisfaction with our self or current circumstances, and can compel us to dismiss the exceptional qualities we already possess. I am active, engaging, and provide clear suggestions and useful feedback. The individuals and couples I work with feel comfortable exploring personal and difficult issues with me. My areas of experience include: Relationships, Separation and Divorce, Depression and Anxiety, Identity and Life Direction, Transitions, Men's Issues, and Addiction.

Your marriage or premarital counseling experience can expand your understanding of yourself, your partner and the patterns of interaction between you. Our work together will give you tools to use these new insights to break out of ineffective, hurtful patterns, and create constructive, healing ways of restoring your intimacy and joy.

About

Eager Worker - Whenever I enter the work field and prepare for the day, I am always in an upbeat mood to get whatever needs to be done. I noticed a lot of workplaces want fast pace, but even the worker's aren't even pacing themselves to a speed I would consider fast. So, I keep it upbeat and strive to get things done. Able to Be on Task - When on task, I fit the situation toward my work habits such as being neat, clean, organized, with flow of charisma, and punctual, and these are just some of the ethics I am portraying. You may not see other workers putting effort into promoting these kinds of ethics, but if want to see the skill I provide, analyzing other employees or employers will show you the difference I can make. Acceptance to Strive - The question that can hold you back when working is, "What drives you to work?" My answer is simple: the acceptance to strive. How can you work without a motivation to push you beyond limits? How can you become determined to stay committed to a job without being proud of what you've done? When i accept to strive, I accept to work. Communication's Negotiator - When I work, I have this helping habit. What I do is I ask them if I can help them. Some say no and some say yes, but what I want to establish with this is that when I communicate and negotiate, I do it all in a helping manner, so that anyone would come out happy. Currency Distributor - Distributing currency, I have the ability to process currency through objective. With this particular skill, what I do is I carefully place currency into whatever machine is used to distribute. Credit Saver - When it comes to credit, we all know how essential it can be, and saving these essentials causes some great production. Creditm when used potentiallym can result in a change toward success, which is something we should all want. Multitasking Initiator - Initiate on a task and multiple tasks is something I acquired through my years of academics, sports, and religious beliefs. I am a Buddhist, but I acknowledge all sorts of religions. Interactive Discusser - I love to have discussion, and I think this is one of my strong points when on the floor of the work field. Although discussions sometimes can lead off topic or get carried away, I will always love to discuss and at the same time interact. Counselor for Answers - Well, when times get rough and support is available to heal, I guide them through phases of healing. We have so many people not knowing answers to questions they have for the world. Well, as a counselor, you guide them to find the answer, just like counselors who have guided us before. Service of Profit - With this meaning, the service you provide will benefit both parties. Together, the efforts will begin to grow into a way of success, which will reach beyond.
