When my husband and i got engaged we were looking for someone to not only marry us but also provide premarital counseling services. My sister recommended Imtasik famili counseling services. Ira did a fantastic job, he was very welcoming and has a great sense of humor. Although he was unable to marry us due to prior engagement, Ira helped us find someone available to marry us. I am not sure what all counselors talk about, but i would assume they all talk about similar things. Ira gave us advice on finances, how to "fight" fair and other topics as well. He never made us feel uncomfortable or judged for things we could not answer properly or at all for that matter. He was even very considerate about scheduling since I lived in Arizona at the time. I would definitely recommend Ira Lake at Imtasik family counseling services Inc. It is definitely worth it. Connie and Diego
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.
I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.
I started trainingwith Mary 2 years ago. Her education and approach is well rounded. Not only did she help me reach my weight loss goal, I've kept it off! She motivates and educates in a fun friendly manner! If you have food or physical restrictions, she can customize to your needs. I love that she looks at the whole person when helping her clients achieve their goals. Beyond the fitness training, I've done aroma therapy, transformational breath work and nutritional counseling with her. She's fantastic at facilitating healing in the body and mind. She's got the energy of a healer!
My husband and I love Cristi! She had a great outline for premarital counseling. We highly recommend her. She gave us a great foundation to the start of our marriage. Truly, she is a gem.
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!
My son Tai, age 7, attended four sessions with Victoria. These sessions helped him deal with bed wetting.
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.
After months with several disappointing counselors, we found Dr. Jeanne. Her approach is impressively different for 3 reasons: 1) she got to essence of the issue -- quickly went beyond the "superficial layers" and discovered the "issue behind the issue", 2) she is extremely fast -- after every session we experienced immediate, significant shifts and although sometimes this stuff can be difficult, she made it palatable in a way that both my husband and I appreciated 3) she does so much more than marriage counseling -- after we got through some "big" issues, she coached us to resolve a number of important business issues that we have been struggling with for some time. But the bottom line is that I can honestly say, that she did in fact help us save our marriage. The fourth nice sugar on top is that she has a very soothing and calm manner, making the difficult issues that are so hard to face, more palatable and easier to approach. I highly recommend her, she will save you considerable time, pain and money -- and most importantly, she gets results.
As an engage couple my fiance' and I wanted to be sure things were Right before marriage.The experience we received through Mikel Life Coaching was over and beyond what we expected.We went in a bit afraid but with a couple of sessions we opened right up.If your seeking help whether it be for premartial, or marriage counseling do not pass this one up. Service is everything you need and you will receive.
Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.
To summarize my experience working with Olivia, I would say life changing. Her counseling was fantastic and filled with tons of insight. Her course works if you are willing to put in the work. Plain and simple. I would recommend her to anyone.
Third Way Counseling is great! They have been sensitive to my needs (financial and time constraints) and are accommodating in every way.
Dr. Christian Snyder is the best counselor you will ever meet. I have benefitted tremendously from our time together. He will help you.
Suzanne is a balm. She is real and straight but has an amazing style of communicating that makes truth easy to accept and even funny. She listens well and sees her clients. I feel cared for and understood by her. Her support is invaluable.
