I really like Linda. We ended up needing something different than a life coach: an in-person marital therapist because we ended up having a trial separation. But I would definitely recommend Linda for couples or individuals.
I spoke with several therapists on the phone before making an appointment with Margo at the Juniper Center. I am so glad that I went to see her. She has outstanding credentials and experience, but her abilities to connect, empathize, and promote self -awareness (so that you are empowered to navigate through your challenges) are absolutely amazing. Great therapist and extraordinary human being.
I have had nothing but negative results from so called therapists/ professionals in the past. Thankfully Beth has opened the door for me in gaining comfort in seeking help with issues that I didn't want to even start unraveling on my own and certainly not with anyone else because I was certain that my problems were not going to be heard and acknowledged as a real problem. Beth has changed my life in a way that only myself and my family could fully understand. I will never hesitate to seek advice or question her ability to help any given situation on any level Thank you Beth.
My partner and I had never been to any kind of counseling or therapy, but wanted to have a positive pre-martial counseling experience. Giulia has been a real gem. We're so happy with her professional yet personal demeanor and how comfortable we feel in sessions with her.
The Rev. Darrell Jones is a very down-to-earth therapist. A session with him is always something I look forward to as an oasis of calm in my busy day-to-day life. The chief benefit of working with Rev. Jones, I would say, is that he shares a broader perspective on life events which helps me to organize my thoughts and understand my experiences. I think that we all need someone like this in our lives so that we may stay rooted.
Debbie has been a driving force behind my growth and strength today. I have been a patient of Debbie's for years, and I couldn't begin to express my gratitude for her and her practice. Debbie is respectful, empathetic, and makes her patients feel comfortable in the most vulnerable times. Her approach and overall knowledge is constructive, and her support is genuine, warm, and encouraging. Throughout my years of therapy, Debbie has worked with me to address my traumas, my fears, my insecurities, and my dependencies, as well as given me insight and tools on how to manage such. I feel safe and I feel heard with Debbie, and I ultimately feel in control of myself and my life. I feel more capable with the perspective and skills she has given me, and I truly value our therapeutic relationship. With Debbie's guidance, insight, and unwavering support, I have become a healthier and stronger woman throughout the years, and I'm hopeful for my future. She is truly one of a kind!
I have worked with Kate for many years now and I can say she is one of the best therapist I know.She is warm, insightful, and deeply knowledgeable. I refer clients to her fully confident that they will receive the best possible care.
Brian R. King specializes in being a relationship teacher. However, from my personal experience of having the opportunity to be coached by him, his skills, abilities, and talents absolutely exceed way past the surface of just relationships. For more than 22 years now I've sought help, guidance, and advice. I have hired and or worked with many counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, and teachers throughout various periods in my life. (I am currently 34 years young). Even though I am not that mature when it comes to the years I've lived, I have been through a lot of difficult and traumatic events that would have broken most people. So, I know a thing or two when it comes to the arena of teaching/coaching/being counseled etc. Earlier this year I had wanted to hire a life coach and actively started looking at options of who to utilize, and not because things were going bad in my life or because I needed help dealing with a traumatic event like I generally did in the past, but because I finally figured out my purpose in life and wanted to excel the process of being the best version of my self that I could be. Before deciding to choose Brian I spent a good chunk of time researching countless individuals who not only claim to help transform your life & get you to where you want to be, but who wouldn't break my piggy bank in the process. Out of all the options I had looked at and considered, I finally decided to go with Brian. What was cool is that I had already known him for quite some time & even interviewed him for my video series called, "Inspiring People Doing Amazing Things In Life." Why Brian out of everyone else? You may be asking... I chose him for many obvious reasons, but what really stood out to me in comparison to all the rest was his diversity and the "realness" of his own life experiences that he has had, gone through, and not only resiliently bounced back from, but has applied all that he's learned and turned it around into helping/guiding/teaching others as they go through their own personal Journey. Also, Brian has the traditional "credible" educational experience, but I personally think outside of the classroom and in this game of life is where the real qualifications come from. It's been a little over 8 weeks now from when I started the journey of having him teach/coach/counsel/mentor me and began his process of unique teachings and concepts. Now, I am genuinely writing this, not because anyone asked me to but because I really want to share with you all my perspective about what he does, based on my own personal experience. I find Brian to be one of the most uniquely brilliant people I have ever encountered and I feel that everyone should know this. This man has amazed the heck out of me...he goes above and beyond to help in every way he can...has such a compassionate, sincere, caring, and genuine approach to everything he assists me on...and has been able to help me in so many ways that he probably isn't even aware of. Brian has helped me to have more effective communication in all areas of my life. He has introduced new concepts to me so that I know the best way to have proper and healthy self-expression. He has heightened my already advanced sense of self-awareness in ways I never imagined or thought possible. I have learned from him how to better handle and respond to experiences in my life both favorable and unfavorable...how to prioritize my time, priorities, and schedule in a unique way that works best for me...how to shift my perspective and perceptions to see others' points of views in a way where I can be more relatable with them...and he has influenced my life in so many ways that I am in awe every day, literally! Other people in my life that personally know me have noticed the transformational shifts that have been taking place and continue to take place within myself, my attitude, and my actions since I've been working with Brian. I really feel that my decision to hire Brian has been one of the best decisions I've made in a really long time and I am forever changed for the better in many ways. I can't even imagine how much more growth that is going to take place or the person I will have become a year from now as I continue to learn from him, follow his guidance, and take action on applying his suggestions. I am so grateful and thankful for this strategic and effective human being...he is truly one of a kind! I would encourage anyone who wants to better themselves in any area of their life to work with Brian and magically discover, just like I have, what ways yourself and your life transcends. I know that if after reading all of this, which is just my personal feedback and perspective, and now knowing all that I've described above...you are most likely going to be compelled to at least give yourself (if you want) the opportunity to grow and blossom into the beautiful person that you are meant to be...Brian has helped many, many people do just that. After all, life is a process and a journey to experience where there is never a destination...until it's your time to physically leave this realm. Make the most out of it while you can! I am grateful that I do! ☺️😉🙏 ~💖~Tiffany Tee~🌟~Always #Love 💖~ "Wake-Up To To Your Human #Potential & Realize The #Infinite Conscious Being That You Are!

Kind, compassionate, and profoundly skilled therapist.
I am glad my husband and I had Anita as our therapist. We were able to work through out problems and learn how to trust each other again . Thank you !
Karolyn provides a valuable service that stems from her experience as a therapist. Her ability to bring a sense of ease to her approach is both supportive and effective. She is professional as well as personal, a winning combination!
I will forever be indebted to Sarah for all the things she has done for me. I would recommend anyone that wants to turn their life around to work with Sarah and trust what she says because she has exceptional skills as a therapist. DBT/Mindfulness has change my life so much. If you are willing to put the work in you can do amazing things with your life. You do not have to stay in the same. What if cycles of life. I don't even take medication anymore and I use mindfulness and meditation too. It is never too late and I am using the skills Sarah taught me and they work. I have been using Mindfulness now for over 2 years and I am happy to say that it has changed my life. A couple years ago I was going to end my life but then I met Sarah and I am in such a better place. I would recommend Sarah to anyone. You are in control of your destiny, so make the most of it.

I've been to other therapists (at other hospitals), and Dr. Holec with Resilience Psychological Services, by far, proved to be the most helpful of them all. She is compassionate, relatable, and easy to talk to. She has a flexible schedule. She is knowledgeable on various therapy methods. She provided me with the resources and support I needed during several challenges I experienced. It is obvious that Dr. Holec is passionate about the work she does. I would highly recommend Dr. Holec!
We initially came to Thumbtack to look for a wedding officiant. We chose Dr. Richards because she's open in beliefs, has amazing discounts, and also offers premarital counseling. She's a minister, event planner & a therapist- one stop shop! She's amazing and truly cares about her clients. Thank you for making our wedding a dream come true!
Tom Goforth is an amazing person! He was my husband's therapist for over 30 years and he also was our couples' therapist. The trust in and gratitude we have for Tom led my husband, Jeff, and I to ask him if he would be the officiant at our wedding in August of 2000. He graciously obliged. Years later, in 2008, our son, Ethan, was born. We named him Ethan "Thomas" after Tom Goforth. Tom has done so much for Jeff and for us as a couple. We are indebted. Thank you, Tom! We love you!
Anita is an excellent therapist. She is a thoughtful listener and responds with helpful commentary to assist in resolving personal issues. I would wholeheartedly recommend.
During our couple sessions Susan has become a wonderful mediator. Even though we have different perspectives, she understands each of us. By listening carefully and asking us probing questions we are better able to share our feelings and create solutions to our problems. In heated moments Susan always pulls us back together and helps us focus on the issue at hand. We always leave with hope and specific strategies to work on until our next session. She continually reminds us of all the positve changes that have occurred because of our hard work which encourages us to keep trying. We would recommend Susan to anyone seeking a therapist.
