As an ordained minister, I have worked with Nancy counseling numerous couples wanting to be married. Her approach is both companionate and professional with an uncanny ability to relate to churched and unchurched persons alike. I wholeheartedly endorse her with no reservation!

Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samantha’s approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you “think” they understand you, but with Samantha one “feels” it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.

I keep crossing paths with Carlyle, and each time we meet again, I am more impressed with his dedication and the breadth of his knowledge. When I first met Carlyle, he was a chaplain for Hospice working with children and some of the more difficult cases, even for Hospice. We collaborated with some work investigating indigenous technologies that deal with grieving, community and relationship, and now share some responsibilities guiding a non-profit group doing water projects and education projects in West Africa. Carlyle has provided counseling and support for some people I know well, and I have been able to see up close the compassion and skill that he brings when working with people who are often in some very vulnerable places. He has recommended some powerful practices and rituals to people that have helped them to ground, and better hold and move the energies they are wrestling with. I have the highest regard for Carlyle, and recommend him with no reservations for help with grief and spiritual needs.

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.

Bernard was amazing! I had an issue after my Mom died with my brother, and through counseling I realized that my brother created an abusive relationship with my Mom and myself, as well as others. I was able to distant myself, and found peace with myself! My relationship with my husband has been the best it has been, and my income has increased. I have learned to manage my time better, and do things for myself. I feel through the counseling process I have become a much stronger person. Bernard's approach was one of listening and creating an environment where I was able to guide myself, and think by putting myself first before others. Hence, I feel myself worth is much stronger as well!

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.

Finding a therapist can often be a difficult task, but I would recommend Stacey to absolutely anyone. She is compassionate, calm and very skilled in what she does. Her desire to help is reflected in her approach to conversations. She conducts herself in a professional manner, but has an innate ability to connect to people. My advice is to call Stacey today and get started on the path to understanding and appreciating yourself.

My fiancé and myself received online financial and relationship counseling from We Can Make You Better. I thought for sure I was doomed in bothe areas. After receiving our guidance over the phone for only three short weeks, we found the root of our problems and our relationship has never been better

About

Gifted and Creative Counseling is my private assessment, life coaching and psychotherapy practice. I've helped people of all ages fulfill their purpose and passion for the last 15 years. I specialize in identifying reasons for complex problems, such as why we aren't succeeding in a given area (social, emotional, relational, occupational, educational, etc.) how to get past whatever is blocking us (beliefs, life situation, relationships, trauma, depression, anxiety). We work at your speed in person, at my Granada Hills office, or by phone, skype, or email. I also specialize in assessing children who are having difficulties, both using achievement testing, and qualitative means such as observation, interview and play, that can yield a kind of owner's manual for him or her; this is useful in a wide range of applications, and teachers really benefit from knowing this information.

About

We offer Buddhist-based counseling and therapy. Try a non-traditional alternative. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is a Buddhist-based, more alternative Asian approach to relating with your "self". "What is accepted by the majority of people does not mean it is real." - The Buddha, 500 BC We provide private, insightful, one-on-one therapy and mindfulness life coaching and relationship counseling for marriages, couples, all kinds of partnerships, workplace and friendships. For emotional and communication breakdowns, we offer "reaching out to reach deep in". "The lotus has its roots in the dank dark mud, Grows up through the cloudy deep water, And finally rises to the surface. It blooms into perfect harmony and purity in the sunlight. It is like the mind unfolding into perfect joy and wisdom..." - The Lotus Sutra Please go now to our counseling blog site; the best info is there! You will find many more of your FAQs responded there. It's really an interesting site. Take your time to graze around in it. Hopefully, you'll certainly know a lot more about what you need when you've done some reading at the blog. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is located at Santa Monica, CA 90405; near Santa Monica College. For our email and phone number, see the service window. The best phone times to contact us are noon to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday. The initial phone contact is always the best and most immediate. Thanks, Akasa Levi, DhMA ( D.Min.) Counseling Supervisor "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase; just take the first step." - Martin Luther King At Spiritual Adulthood, we apply the Buddhist psycho-spiritual approach to the mind. "The journey itself is the destination!" We offer a uniquely combined counseling: an innovative, holistic, spiritual variation of the mind-therapies, based in practical, quite highly scientific Buddhist wisdom combined with a gentle, accepting, gradual compassionate view towards all beings. "Buddhist mindfulness-based guidance" with its long humanitarian history, is a well-respected ancient Asian, non-religious, more spiritual option to the regular standard model of Western clinical therapies. Buddhism is not "religious", it is Asian-psychology based. You certainly can be a sincere, deeply spiritual person without being religious, without having any higher authorities and that helps to truly open the heart and mind to trust and sensibility. This is not a licensed psychotherapy! Please visit our blog for the details and the disclaimer. We assist in healing the mind in the midst of these very edgy, scary, confusing, disappointing, over-driven, tense, survival-stressed, anxious uncertain times. Buddhist Inner Work: "Therapy" is not found in even the best of books or CDs, or on the internet. It's a live interactive relating process; it always has been. Interactively, that's how the problems started. Well, that's how they have to resolve! For the therapy, two people sit down and emphatically work on one of them. It's living, live, dynamic and face to face. This time around, it's a cooperative dyad of two people who care, and are in on this. Therapy counseling is a relationship in its truest form, and that's always disturbingly risky for the wounded spirit to change. "The greatest risk is not taking one." Spiritual Adulthood is offering a much more radical form of counseling, more geared to people in the whole spectrum of contemporary creative arts and the best of new thought-minded sensibilities. Maybe it is more green, liberal, or cultural and creative. Maybe it is just you. The Spiritual Adulthood exploration encourages and supports a very eclectic "inquiry into self" practice, combining the cool, calm observation approach of traditional, quiet mindfulness meditation with effective "crazy wisdom" irrationality of Zen-mind realizations that can cognitively short circuit the common, but so obsessive self-involved, self-absorbed and self-identified ego mind. "One easily made, very common mistake is to think that your reality is "the" reality. You must always be prepared to bravely leave your reality for a greater one." - Meeraji We encourage highly inquisitive, progressive-minded people, with a natural, deep love of learning who relish the abstract, and even the absurd and have a genuine taste for the indefinable existential stuff. Buddhist psychology is playful too. "...ever noticed that it's always now." - Alan Watts He suggests that you repeatedly keep noticing this many times a day. Usually, the people who do eventually come to us are more explorative, curious, do have a more active intellect and are innately, intensely inquisitive people by their nature. There are not ordinary Americans. The "inner search", "the quest" and "the mystery" are the understanding of it all. They are people who relish the "safari" of it, the search, the inquiry, the brave quest of it, hurting or not, rather than popular ideas and packaged prescriptions just served-up and ready to eat. There is no quick fix. Enlightened freedom is experiential. It is not just a home-deliverable product. For each of us, all growth is a life-long psychological pilgrimage, experienced through a compassionate spiritual heart that includes live, full, rich relationship experiences with all other living beings. Question: "Grandfather, what is destiny?" Destiny is every step we are taking and going through right now to get there. "So, you really must consciously choose and make the choice of good spirits to re-choose again and again to openly talk truth with someone and keep it up. Keep it up to openly keep talking with someone. This is to be open to trust in gradually letting it all arise and unfold, messy or tidy, depressed or distressed. We all have these feelings. It's nothing new." - Grandfather Bearheart, contemporary Creek Elder "Eighty percent of success is just showing up." - Woody Allen Go ahead, and get into some quality counseling or therapy. You are really being heard here or somewhere that they will really take a deep caring to listen to you and really, really hear you and that is a very courageous move on your part: to move yourself into a counseling setting. It just may be the right place for you to start. Be very welcome to inquire more about us, as you search out where to do this inner work. Please read some more on this site. Buddhist-based wisdom offers compassionate, effective alternative approaches to relating with your "self" and all other living beings. Awaken the "compassionate insight" that is naturally deep within you and within mostly everyone. This is a liberal-minded therapy for intelligent, sensitive, intellectual and gifted, creative people who are often odd, often wonderfully offbeat, yet are now very discomforted, unhappy people. We offer an empathic, warm Asian-style of alternative treatment of mind well-being that just may be a more natural, truly effective, non-traditional approach. We are offering another possibility as a workable therapy approach for you. "The privilege of a lifetime is being truly who you are." - Joseph Campbell Phone us, and let's really take a few minutes together to talk on the phone and find out a bit more about what's going on within you. There are no obligations! It's a free phone consultation! Please go to our blog site and read a bit. There are a bundle of appointment details there and some sensible, solid good recommendations on how to even approach the idea of beginning some serious counseling or therapy, but there are no promises, no guarantees. Each individual situation is different and certainly, effectiveness may vary; yet it may be worth giving it a try. "And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"- Anais Nin Buddhist therapy has been done very effectively for 2,557 years. "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world, as in being able to remake ourselves. Become the changes you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi This can be done. Give it and you a chance! If you know someone else in your life who just may also benefit by our offerings, be very welcome to put them in phone touch with us. We offer a free phone consultation, but please ask them to visit our blog-site first. We also offer: * The Laughing Buddha Sangha Buddhist meditation classes and retreats. Visit our "Buddha-blog" meditation site. * The Zen Men group. Good men are becoming even better men! Men's inner growth groups explore a man's deeper core issues. Every guy could use being in a men's group at some time in his life. Men are learning to trust and support each other in making important life changes.

About

I provide marriage counseling for couples at risk of divorce or who need to learn how to effectively communicate, set boundaries, and assert oneself. I also do individual therapy for relationship issues, depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, and with a specialty working with eating disorders.

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.
