My husband and I needed help with a few issues in our marriage, we have never been to counseling, therapy or coaching and I didn't know what to expect. Matthew made me feel so relax and with only one session I was able to get everything that I was holding back out of my system, he helped me translate to words what I was feeling and didn't know how to express to my spouse. Im very grateful to Matthew and highly recommend him.
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.
I can't describe how awesome my first session was! We clicked right away and I know she is the right therapist for me. I am extremely excited for my future sessions.
I've never had an experience like I just did with Dr. Ransen. My husband and I have seen quite a number of marriage therapists over our 43 years together. This one initial session with Dr. Ransen helped us more as a couple, and me as an individual,than months and months of past sessions with other therapists.
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.
My wife and I are thrilled with Ruth. She has given our marriage a huge lift. We had been movingb in a very negative direction for the past few years and tried marriage counseling before but without any success. Ruth has a very unique way of helping us open up our communication and it has been great.
Fr. Paul performed our marriage and baptized both our children in the Catholic faith. Each ceremony was lovely. We feel blessed to have had these meaningful experiences with him. He is a very kind and genuine person.
Excellent therapist. She is currently working on me and my wife so we can better are marriage.
Art is a very professional and kind. I worked with him as a patient a few years ago and felt his style to very calm and unthreatening. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a compassionate therapist.
I found her by the grace of God . She saved our marriage .. We now have a better marriage then we thought we could have . She has taught both my husband and I how to really love each other and communicate our feelings . She also helped us with other issues that were destroying our marriage ..and got through to my husband which I never thought would happen . She saw me many times alone and really helped me to understand myself . We are still in therapy not as often as we were . My husband actually looks forward to going.. We know if we slip we can see her and we come out of her office feeling renewed .. Thank you Riana..
My husband and I have been to other therapists in the past and Orly has been the only one to really make a difference.
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!
Dr. Coral Arvon is highly intelligent and experienced. My family and I have been to other therapists that just were not able to offer the insight and knowledge that Dr. Arvon has. She is truly the best!!!
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.
I was was a groomsman in the wedding of my cousin a few months ago were Minister José Vilanova was the Officiant. It was a beautiful ceremony. Minister Vilanova made the ceremony both inspirational to all single guest like myself who at the thought of marriage makes me pause. After hearing his thoughts on the sanctity of marriage i feel much more at ease when the time comes for.me to take my vows. Minister Vilanova also attended the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner too. He was very attentive to both my cousin and her bridegroom. Making the pre-jitter nerves more relaxing. Also, giving a toast to the soon to be newlyweds and their families. He was professional, humorous, witty, and on time. I would recommend him to anyone of any faith or lifestyle to have him as their Officiant.
I highly recommend Dr. Scholtz. She continues to help me feel better about challenges in my life. She has a great way about her; friendly, approachable, and very professional! I always look forward our weekly visits.
