Sheila M.
Verified review

My fiancé and I have been working with Linda for the last several weeks. Being in a long distance relationship, my fiancé and I were happy to find someone who could counsel with us over the phone and accommodate our needs. When searching for a counselor, Linda was very quick in her response to me. We've been pleased with the material and assessments she uses, which helps us evaluate our relationship, building on strengths and working on weaknesses. Linda has a professional yet friendly demeanor and is always on time. My favorite part of our assortment is when we talk about things that have happened during the week. Linda gives us wisdom and practical ideas for coming up with solutions to work out our differences. This advice is so appropriate to our individual personalities and our relationship (and she never chooses sides) that we will continue to seek out her expertise when we hit any bumps in our marriage road as well.

From our initial phone conversation, we felt very comfortable being open with Rev. Porter. I enjoyed his laugh! He gave us some ideas that we'd never thought of and seems very willing to carry out what will be our dream ceremony, adding special touches. He suggested marriage counseling and really told us what the value is. We hadn't thought of doing this, but will after his recommendation. We look forward to meeting him and beginning this journey together.

Jim L.
Verified review

At Medvesta Hypnosis, Steve actually met with my counselor. He taught me how to do self-hypnosis to take the pressure off of myself. My expectations were set too high for myself and others during the holidays. I learned not everything goes as planned. We identified my specific concerns as I had been very uncomfortable. Also, I did not look for relief using alcohol during the holidays as I learned the habit of saying no to habits that were tripping me up.

Deb has a unique approach to counseling that is supportive, intuitive, challenging and positive. She creates an encouraging, safe environment in which to explore places you probably don't want to go, but need to.

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!

About

My professionalism, and ability to engage all involved in the celebration to make for memorable occasion.

About

I am a licensed professional counselor in Illinois and began working as a therapist in August 2012. I have been providing in-home social services since May 2006, and I believe working with clients in-home can have many benefits. I specialize in individual, couples, and family therapy. I work with clients to understand where they struggle as well as their strengths in order to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan.

About

I help family who may need help within each other. I give great advice. I don't judge one because no one is perfect.

About

I have over 10 years of experience in providing individual, family and couples therapy. I specialize in anxiety, depression and trauma related disorders. I also help individuals to grow professionally during life transitions. If your family is struggling with loss, transition and divorce, I can help. I also work with transgender individuals.

About

I help families, couples and individuals to understand the underlying, root causes of their hardships, with the aim to strengthen healthy patterns, while minimizing unhealthy ones. On the way, I help people to learn to handle more effectively their struggles and the discomfiting realities that aggravate their lives - realities that stir up the feelings of depression, anxiety, turmoil and anger that first brought them to look for counseling. Sometimes, our lives have disturbing external realities that can be altered, but too often, external changes are impossible. When this is the case, then, I assist clients to learn ways to develop the inner strengths which will help them search for effective ways to live in and cope with constructive harmony with these realities. Every person who walks into my office is unique. Each views the world from the specific vantage point of the values, needs, style and beliefs that upbringing and nature have encouraged her or him to develop. In honoring such, I respectfully relate to each client's individuality, whether as a family, couple or individual. In working with families and couples, I aim to discover, constructively resolve and help understand the underlying issues which lie behind the negative patterns and resulting hurts which have created the unhappiness that prodded them to seek help through counseling.

About

With a three year masters in marriage and family counseling, I'm trained to handle most issues that present themselves. Not only do I work with clients on personal and relational issues, but also help with practical concerns, such as home and office organization. You can view my website.

About

Have you felt disoriented or confused, like you are wandering through life without direction? Are your relationships feeling strained and overworked? Is life feeling overwhelming and taxing? There is freedom from these feelings and I believe I can help you find and take them. I work with clients to navigate the highs and lows of depression, anxiety, grief, and confusion. Life can often throw people out of alignment or off-kilter. Connecting with and re-aligning the different parts of one’s experience foster’s self-compassion and can help people make new and better decisions. My goal is not to make decisions for my clients, rather to empower them to make the challenging and life-giving decisions on their own, with confidence. But breaking old habits can be challenging. Sometimes it is easier to stay stuck doing the same old-thing-than to face the unknown, even if the unknown could be better. I want clients who are willing to embrace challenge and work for their healing and improvement. I want nothing more than to put myself out of a job if it means my clients are able to proceed confidently and proudly through their lives. I work with individuals who focus on identity challenges and development, spirituality, depression, anxiety, and LGBTQ concerns. I also help clients navigate the ways they interact in relation to others. It is impossible to change another person, but it is possible to decide how others can affect us. By learning to advocate for one’s needs and learning the ways those needs lead someone to react people can take ownership over their lives and their relationships. Once we learn to take care of ourselves we can help take care of others in our lives. I work with couples in all stages and from all walks of life. I work my clients to uncover the ways each partners’ histories contribute to the current relationship. Every person brings their own unique “stuff” into a relationship whether they realize it or not. Understanding the way one’s needs interact with their partner’s needs allows each member of a couple to ask for the things that will nourish the relationship most. If both members of a partner are able to care for their own needs they are better able to take care of their beloved.
