Rose is like no other marriage therapist. She doesnt hold back when asking questions and gets right to the point. We are happy we found her and would highly recommend.
Cheryl is great! Very professional and experienced. My wife and I came to her in a difficult time in our marriage. Cheryl gave us the tools and direction to navigate through our issues and we are now on a path to a stronger more loving marriage. I know the lessons we learned in counseling with Cheryl will stick with us for the rest of our lives.
My name is Dawn, and I am an independently licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I can attest to the quality of Anne's graduate work both clinically and academically as we pursued this degree as cohorts in the same graduating class, and served together in the same clinical internship setting. Anne has had excellent training, and is competent in her understanding and use of multiple therapeutic modalities. She has a balanced approach to her work, well utilizing both empathy and counsel. She has a fun and engaging personality with a wit that promotes easy delivery of information even in challenging circumstances. She is competent with a wide range of clients from adolecence to late adulthood and collaborates with her clients to assist with a broad spectrum of life's needs and challenges. I have also known Anne as a personal friend and have seen how she has endured through many difficult life circumstances with strength and perseverance. I have seen the quality and strong ethic of her work. I have also seen her compassionate and engaging personality promote her to high levels of recognition in other work environments and fields of interest. All of this said, I would give Anne a strong recommendation. Her knowledge and skills will serve you well! Dawn G., MS, IMFT Counselor, Marriage & Family Therapist
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to LaTasha. She did a phenomenal job so that I could simply relax and enjoy my evening with my husband and all of our friends and family! She did all of the set up and take down all while still making sure everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there without missing a beat. If someone had a problem she had a solution without hesitation. She was prepared for anything thrown at her. I simply just got to be a bride and enjoy my special day. If you are looking for a DOC, LaTasha is definitely the girl for the job! ❤️
Doris has really helped my husband and I strengthen our marriage. She pegged our personalities immediately so we were able to dive right into our issues and work on what really matters. Doris isn't afraid to speak the truth, even if it hurts. That is incredibly important in a counseling relationship. We would recommend her to anyone.
My husband and I have been to a few different therapists. We never found someone that seem to understand both of our positions, which is exactly what Bella manages to do when we meet with her. She listens to both of us and she never judges us for anything that we say or do. It feels really good to be heard.
Andrea's solution focused therapy sessions allowed my husband and I to really open up to each other. Finding common ground, compassion and intimacy toward each other were some of our main goals and we were able to accomplish that with Andrea. If you are looking for a short term solution to improve your marriage, we would highly recommend Andrea Levitan.
Rachael is a wonderful therapist. Very knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. Dedicated to her clients and her work as a therapist.
I needed someone to talk to that day as I was going through a marriage crisis. Micaela was available right away and really helped me. I was on the brink of crumbling and she helped me out of that. I would recommend her to anyone!
I was referred to Lilac Center and it was the best thing I have ever done. Unlike other places I have been too, they are no comparison to Lilac Center. Lilac Center has group therapy and individual therapy and it is working for me. I love the therapist and the Psychiatrist, they are so sweet and very helpful with the problems you have and they teach you skills to work on when you are having a bad day, All I can say is that it is a wonderful place to go to and would refer anyone to Lilac Center.

Vivian was great! My husband and I attended several of her marriage counseling classes and Vivian was compassionate and made us feel she understood our concerns and addressed them in a way that didn't make us feel like she was judging us. She gave great tips to make our marriage better and we're very greatful to her for it.
Michelle was our family therapist during a really difficult time in dealing with our teenage daughter. She was so personable and made us feel very comfortable. Our daughter had been to several other therapists and really made a connection with Michelle and made great progress while in her care. Michelle wasn't just good for our daughter she was good for us too. She helped us work through our own issues and helped us to understand that the issues we were having were not just our daughters issues but an entire family issue and what we needed to do to heal as a family unit. She was kind, compassionate and overall excellent in her services. I would highly recommend her services. Our family would not be where it is today without Michelle's patience and guidance.

Edgar was a co-officiate at our wedding, November 12th, 2005. The ceremony was held in St Pauls Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. My husband, John, and I both knew Edgar and we asked that he be a part in our ceremony. We admired his caring approach with people, the knowledge and wisdom he brings to his professional work counseling people, and his faith. He attended our rehearsal dinner and took time to meet and know each of our families. At the wedding ceremony itself Edgar spoke about marriage. Using themes accessible to everyone, he made our ceremony very personal, a gift to us and our family and friends on our wedding day. We still remember and talk about the words he shared that day. He spoke eloquently about the importance of each of us as individuals, and the importance of our shared bond together. He also used the idea of a garden as a metaphor for marriage. He told us that through the years we would need to tend to our marriage, till under the old and use it as food for the future to grow together as a couple. Edgars presence gave us a warm feeling, and his words will stay with us for a lifetime.
I found Marchita to be a caring and understanding therapist. She listened to both me and my wife without judging us. Her techniques encouraged us to participate willingly. I would encourage any couple who is serious about their relationship and making it enjoyable, communicative and Loving again should see Marchita. Marchita is not afraid to deal with the complex issues of marriage or relationships.I like how she use real life to help me understand psychological behaviors and how to address and resolve issues.
Michael has been a huge blessing to our family. Our daughter and now son-in-law went to Michael for premarital counseling which is sort of like a car inspection for marriage. After hearing about all the wise and insightful things that Michael had to share with them, we knew that he was the person we wanted to go to for the problems we were having with our much older model. It had been making noises for years and the check engine light was flashing red. We met with Michael several times and were both impressed with how he was able to cut to cut through to the heart of our issues and show us how to work on fixing what was broken. We can't recommend Michael enough!
