I had my doubts about getting marriage counseling, but when I started going to Michelle she proved to me how helpful it really is. So much that I think every young couple needs coaching in order to avoid serious relationship issues in the future. With her loving sidekick/spouse helping out, it provides a male and female aspect of each situation that comes up. Overall, Michelle is a great, caring person that will provide you with positive energy, motivation, and useful resources for life (not just marriage counseling). Coaching or no coaching, it's always nice to be blessed with the presence of such a person in your lifetime.

My goodness, how can I put into words my feelings on Reverend James as our Wedding Officiant? When I look back on that day, he is there smiling at me-his presence brings me peace as it always has. He is the one who before our wedding reminded me to remember to look into each other eyes and take in the moment and all its greatness. And I am so glad I did that! Reverend James was the one who counseled my husband and I before our marriage-helping us understand all that stood before us and that all we needed was love, understanding and compassion. Reverend James even found us our band-who made the day spectacular! My own father is older, from another time. Reverend James has always been there for me in a way that I really needed- a strong wise person who loved and reminded me to love as greatly as I can. If he has made it into your life-enjoy the blessing that he really is.

When people ask me about Pedro, this is what I tell them, "Hire Pedro Baez, work with him assiduously, and change your life immeasurably for the better." Pedro is a forthright, honest, and loving coach who will act like a sextant as you steer your life towards the direction you want to go, revealing the innumerable choices in your journey and the transformative beauty of the experience. I've worked with him for almost two years, and this is the fruit: 1. Wrote a well-received book. 2. Recovered from an abusive marriage. 3. Learned to be less reactive, spot dysfunctional cycles, and shift relationships so that they are healthier. I am grateful for the work we have done.

Brad was there for him when I needed him the most. He was the one who reminded me "SELF LOVE" that gave me the courage to leave my husband who was cheating on me. Brad genuinely cares about me as a person, now just another client of his. He never assumes what is best for me.. he always ask me why I do the things I do... He makes me ponder on a lot of my thoughts and decisions... He never judges.. he is not just a coach.. he is a friend.. he cares and loves people and that is what makes him so successful in what he does... With Brad's help, I was able to put my past behind me and move on with my life.. He shows me that TRUE LOVE is out there.. Just ask the universe for it and it will bring it to you... Brad brought a lot of his life experiences to the table... he is compassionate and empathetic because he speaks and coaches from his personal experiences.. He is real... not some counselors with head knowledge... I highly recommend Brad if you are lost and need to find who you truly are...

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.

I have worked with Carlyle in health care and spiritual care settings. He brings clarity and compassion to the process of becoming a whole and healed person. Carlyle is committed to bringing out the best in himself & those around him, especially come hell & high water. He is the person we all want to have on our team or lifeboat when facing difficult times. You could do no better than come to know Carlyle as a counselor or guide for yourself. I for one feel blessed to know him, rely on him, and be care for by him. — Jennifer Block, Chaplain and Educator

We had a beautiful and incredibly fun wedding in Northern California, but our officiant, Brad Sarian, was the by far our favorite part of our wedding. Its easy to get caught up in the wedding planning, vendors, and the day itself, but through premarital meetings and the actual ceremony, Brad pointed my wife and I (and all our guests) to the true purpose of marriage. Brad is a great communicator, very approachable, and relatable, not just to my wife and I, but to everyone in attendance. I highly recommend Brad to be the officiant of your wedding.

I have been to many marriage therapists and while my marriage unraveled right before Dr. Price, she genuinely cared for both of us and without her I would not have been able to make it through this. Her understanding is coupled with exceptional education and enough heartbreaking experiences in her personal life to truly be both empathetic and guiding. Linda is truly one of the rare councerlors who could save your marriage if gone to soon enough and will help you save yourself and family if too late. I have referred many couples and individuals to her and ALL have sent glowing reports back to me.

Ayamanatara performed our wedding in September of 2009. She paid meticulous attention to creating a day that fully incorporated our hopes and expectations as well as being representational of the community we were creating with our newly formed circle of friends and family. We received a multitude of compliments from our guests on the ceremony that she performed. We will always be grateful that she was such an integral part of our marriage's beginning.

My partner and I could not have found a better fit! Our relationship was getting very strained until we started counseling here. Our relationship has truly taken a 180. We are so happy to have found our counselor, Adriana. 10/10 would recommend.

Matthew and I knew we wanted to marry and blend our families. When we found out we were able to have the older children live with us, we felt it would be better for our family to solidify with Marriage. We called on our friend Victoria, as an ordained Minister, she understood us, and knew we were committed to each other and our family. Victoria married Matthew and I in an intimate, touching ceremony where we had our first date. Victoria touched on reminders for us of love, commitment and God. We are so thankful she was there for us in this exciting time of our lives. Thank you Victoria!!

About

I have worked with hospice, helping individuals and families entering their end of life transition. I have found that by paying particular attention to the steps of grief, people can continue to grow and build healthy relationships even while coming to terms with a terminal illness. It is important for everyone to be able to break through old patterns to say what needs to be said. I have since transitioned to working with individuals with eating disorders, which reflect other underlying issues and trauma. I assisted many clients replace self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, self-harm, substance abuse, and other maladaptive coping skills) with acceptance and self-love. I believe therapy can benefit everyone who sincerely wishes to see a change in his or her life. Appropriate therapy can relieve feelings of distress, increase satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, create skills for managing anxiety, and help grow greater personal awareness and insight. Difficult changes have no specific design, but with help, you can learn from them, grow with them, and be better because of them.

About

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapist’s job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week — seeking collaborative solutions — and try them out between sessions. Whether you’re familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired “shifts”. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.

About

Sometimes, life just doesn't go the way we want. Too often, we find ourselves stuck in a bad place, leaving us hurt, lonely, angry or depressed, just plain out of control. Why is it that we do the things we don’t want to do, and we don’t do the things that we know are good for us? I provide a confidential, non-judgmental place to re-engineer your life. I will strive to help you experience growth from the pain of life and empower you to move forward, better able to face the inevitable problems that come your way. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you, to help you clarify what you want from your life and how to go about getting it. My primary area of interest is in working with couples, although I do work with individuals also. This includes pre-marital counseling, communication difficulties, recovery from affairs and sex addiction, and parenting together after divorce. In 2011, I've completed a certification in sex addiction therapy (CSAT®) through Patrick Carnes. The CSAT® program is fast becoming the industry's standard certification for all therapists who are working with individuals who suffer from addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors. I've received a Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology from Azusa Pacific University and am a marriage and family-therapist-registered intern (IMF#64851) under the supervision of Curtis Miller, Psy.D., D. Min, MFT#31636. I am trained to use the prepare/enrich inventories, which is a comprehensive couple assessment tool for pre-marital counseling.

About

I am passionate about healthy marriages and thriving relationships, so I most enjoy working with dating, engaged, and married couples. I teach each couple how to assertively ask for what they want and need, how to communicate effectively by allowing their partner to feel safe, and how to resolve conflict in a constructive way that respects, rather than wounds, one another. If you are facing challenging circumstances in your relationship, I believe these can be an opportunity to strengthen your connection with your partner and draw you closer together, instead of driving you apart. For dating and engaged couples, I am a certified facilitator for the prepare/enrich program and recommend couples considering marriage to complete this valuable instrument. We use your data to identify strengths and growth areas, as well as explore opinions about core issues in marriage to find agreement and negotiate differences. I offer day, evening, and weekend sessions, as well as a free phone consultation to briefly discuss your situation and answer any questions you have as you evaluate options for counseling.
