Pastor Clark was a warm and sincere person to work with during our planning and the day of our marriage. He really put a lot of thought into our wedding ceremony and made us feel as if we were the only two people he was working with. We were impressed by his sincerity and the time he spent getting to know us. He provided us with a beautiful copy of the ceremony and we truly appreciated his thoughtfulness every step of the way. Thank you, Pastor Clark.
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.
A great experience. We recommend Krista to anyone who's looking for Marriage and Family Therapy services.
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.
I can’t begin to describe what a positive impact Amy Lindsey has had on my life! I started meeting with her when I was in the middle of a life crisis. Between my marriage falling apart and some other tragic events, everything in my world felt overwhelming. I had days where my sadness and hurt were as much as I could bear. Amy had a way of listening to each situation, acknowledging my pain, and helping me find solutions. She encouraged me to be open and honest and would hold me accountable for decisions I made. When I met her, I felt an instant rapport. You can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and wants to help them find healing through difficult times or success with their life struggles. I would highly recommend Amy Lindsey as a therapist or life coach! I am so thankful that I found her during my most difficult time. She brought me hope, healing and encouraged me to make significant positive changes 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.
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.
Listen really good about our problems. And gives good advice on how to moved forward in life about our marriage.
Arya is one of the most gifted guided counselors I’ve ever met. His astute awareness to key into what’s being spoken and what’s beneath the words is one of the things that make him such an effective marriage and relationship counselor. He has a gentle way of showing you the way to your truth by asking the right questions or roleplaying with yourself or your partner. His process is nonintimidating and creative which is especially helpful under the circumstances of dealing with years of sensitive issues. My boyfriend and I were at a crossroad of parting ways when we took the leap to try couples counseling and coaching instead of psychotherapy. The results of our time invested with Arya have made us whole again and more in love than ever before. Thank you Arya! You are one of a kind! Nancy
Melanie has been my counselor for many years now and I continue to look forward to our sessions. She provides a great balance of listening and input while helping me work out my issues on my own. I would highly recommend her services - its been the best investment Ive made in myself.
Ms. Kelly is such a great counselor. My daughter loves to see her. She feels confortable taking with her. We talk about family issues and feel very supported.
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.

Relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and addictions often have their roots in early experiences, past traumas, and ways of coping that are no longer working. I help individuals and couples move past obstacles that are holding them back and interfering with the ability to enjoy life in the present.
