God’s timing is a mystery and after a experiencing a long season of suffering, suddenly my circumstances changed when God connected me to Michael Armfield, a spirit-filled, life coach whose skilled advice is guiding me toward restoration. My story is not unique. Like many women, I was emotionally ravaged by a one-sided divorce that ended a 20 year marriage. Consequently, I suffered, having a “good day” followed by “bad days”. I have spent the better part of ten years trying to reconcile my shattered self-image and regain a sense of self-worth. Recently, I reached a tipping point and, finally fed up with the dead-end, deja-vu cycle of self-loathing, over-eating and persistently negative mind-set, I finally realized that I was poisoning my very own existence and God-given potentiality. My negative view of my world and failure to move on with life has exhausted the emotions of all my dear family members and closest friends. My children encouraged me to seek council, which I resisted because I wanted GOD to fix my emotions, finances and waistline. Recently, I began counseling with Michael and, as a result of his astute advice and weekly “homework”, I am finally walking through the graveyard of my past instead of living there day-to-day. His wise counsel and guidance have created a much-needed positive shift in my negative view of the world. I am experiencing the lifting of a mighty burden and starting to live in the NOW. Gratefully, I am recognizing the slow but certain healing of my mind, will and emotions. Sending heartfelt thanks to Michael and Gateway Counseling.
Very highly recommended. We were skeptical about the "brief therapy" thing, because our problems went back a long time. But it really worked for us, just as Dr. Ransen promised. After just 5 sessions, we felt almost like newlyweds again. The best part is that we just don't fight anymore, and it's been almost 8 months since our sessions. I feel like I'm seeing a whole new side of my husband, and I love it. We are very grateful. He has checked up on us twice since our counseling sessions, so it seems like he really cares how we're doing.
Robin is an outstanding marriage counselor. She is professional, insightful, knowledgeable and compassionate. We have worked individually as well as in a couples session. We continue to see her as it has proven to be very helpful. I would and DO highly recommend her.
I will refer all my family members that need direction, and help with their families. She helped me and my family so much.
I've always had difficulty expressing my feelings to family and friends, afraid of rejection and hurting others feelings. Ruth has helped me learn and to use new communication skills to overcome my fears.
I have been seeing Mr. Strauss for almost a year, and I would not change seeing him to see anyone else! I was having transportation issues, and he came to my house to make sure I still got the counseling services I needed! When I talk to him I feel like I am talking to my best friend..I love that he really goes out of his way to help me in any way he can, and really listens, and brings a smile to my face; even when I am in so much pain!
My husband and I were fortunate to receive Pre-Marital Counseling from John Pierre. At the time we were engaged and knew that we wanted to come into our marriage armed with as much knowledge as possible to have a successful and life-long bible-based marriage. During the counseling sessions we learned so much about ourselves as individuals. We also realized very early on that we were entering into the most important decision of our lives and this decision would determine the direction and course of our lives from the moment we say I do. Mr. Pierre is a no holds bar, tell it like it is, honest man. He made us look at each other from how we were raised, our thoughts, actions and decisions leading up to that point and their possible effect on the impending marriage. As the counseling sessions progressed, we began to understand marriage for what it truly is while simultaneously assessing our realistic expectations based on our values and goals in life. The knowledge we gained through our counseling is priceless. Seven years later we still use the tools we learned in our pre-marital counseling. The one tool we repeat and even teach back to others from Mr. Pierre is "Explore." If you want to know what that means and how it will make your marriage one to be reckoned with, you need to book family counselor John Pierre, we give him five stars (x2) and two thumbs (x2). You are in for a treat!

Faith is a counselor with expertise and compassion. She is a wonderful listener. She listens, assesses, advises, and creates a plan of action in order for you to heal and to be the best you can be. Faith always returns messages and follows up. She also provides opportunities such as teleconferences to promote healing and growth. I highly recommend Faith as a counselor.
Maxie is accomplished, supportive, wonderful, and frankly, the best counselor I have ever been to. Her advice is both beneficial and constructive, and for each issue I've had, she lays out a practical and strategic approach to problem solving. Her cheerful disposition coupled with a professional yet warm demeanor put me at ease and make me feel as if I'm confiding in an old friend. I feel comfortable talking to her about anything and she has helped me tremendously! I so look forward to our sessions and am so grateful I found her! HIGHLY recommended!!!
I had a good and powerful experience with Rapha Family Services. The staff is effective, caring and compassionate. I will recommend it to anyone. Nadine
Love this young lady and her insight. She has been a positive and insightful force my family and I.
My husband and I have always needed help communicating. We just opened a business which is very stressful and were fighting all the time. Dr. Sussman is as described in his profile which is exactly what we needed! He is comfortable, experienced, professional, keeps on point, genuinely concerned about solving your issues, always on time and you never feel rushed to get out of your session. After only 3 sessions we are communicating 100% better and a lot less fighting. We are both completely satisfied with Dr. Barry Sussman.
Howard Lane saved my life. He is a professional dealing with real people. He cares for his clients and leads with his heart and mind about addiction, depression, anxiety, and really anything you need to talk about. He is not only a wonderful clinician, he is a wonderful man and I would trust him with my feelings and struggles always.
Jason is so easy to talk to and very understanding. He makes me feel comfortable to open up an share what is going on in my life and always has useful advise to get me through situations and balance what I am going through. Highly recommend!
