Thanks to Rose, we are able to save our marriage. We have tried several counselors before finding Rose. She isn't like all the others. She pushes you to get to the root of the problem and talk through it. She taught us to strengthen our communication, taught us how to overcome insecurities, and gave constant feedback. Many counselors, you sit and talk for an hour to receive no feedback or advice. She is so truthful, resourceful, and intelligent. Thanks for saving our family. The Collins Family

My experience with Thrive started approximately 16 months ago. I came to a point where I knew that I needed guidance and help. I was burdened with guilt to an extent that I had never experienced, and it was consuming my day to day life. It was in my nature to resist change, ignore weakness, and not ask for help. All are important, but the third is the most important. I had a long list of counselors to pick from. So I picked one to call first. That phone call established much more than I would've ever thought, and changed my life for the better, helped me maintain my path through bad times, and made something click in my brain that brought back personal interests and values that I had lost along the way. I've never made a statement like that in my life until now. Together we dug myself out of the whole that I was masking from co-workers, friends, family, and all. After about seven months in, I hit a realization that I'd never been happier in my adult life. This took dedication to the process. If you do not focus on positives, while accepting and facing the negatives, you won't get better. That thought process was, is and will remain a necessity in my day to day life. It took time, self awareness, and empathy. So what happens from there....? Life hit me even harder than ever before. Within a seven week window, the combination of circumstances caused the worst pains of my life thus far. Initially, it broke me down. The first 3 of 7 months were brutal, but positive thought was always present no matter how bad the day or week had been - very minimal at times, but it was there. I wouldn't take the period of struggle back for anything, because I faced it. I learned more about myself than any period of my life, what I could handle, and our ability to keep moving forward. My counselor is the only reason I figured this out. Because I asked for help almost a year prior, established a connection with my counselor, put all cards on the table, I was able to come out of a hole - guilt. Then six months later, get knocked into a deeper hole, bc that's what life does. While it was the worst time ever in the moment, it was the best time in terms of mental health, strength and growth. The most important thing I can say is the following - I know that life is going to hit me with terrible moments again. There will be unfortunate circumstances, loss, mistakes made, and on and on. However, I don't worry about it, because of two things primarily. I can accept that certain things you cannot control, and that I will handle whatever it is, get through it, support the others effected, and move forward. My appreciation of perspective that I've gained through my counselor will be instilled in me for the rest of my life and the gratitude I extend is in the hope that whoever is reading this, if you think you might need help, then you do need help, and you need to take action as I did.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all that Latasha did to help my 19 year old great-nieces pull off a surprise "belated" wedding reception for their parents. She helped them gather and organize everything they needed, then, on party day, she made sure every detail was taken care of, included, but certainly not limited to setting up the decorations and food, as well as kept the food table filled, directed the flow of people and managed those of us who were helping out. Then, on top of that, she officiated at the re-doing of vows for my niece and her husband! I do not know what we would have done without her! She removed many the chores and stress from my nieces, which allowed them to enjoy the party, too. But I have yet to tell you the most amazing part of this... When Latasha forest heard about 2 19-year old twin sisters trying to pull of a wonderful surprise for their parents on a VERY small budget (I should say "tiny budget"), she donated her time to them! Latasha, you are one amazing woman!! Thank you so much for all you did! You helped make extremely important lasting family memories for all of us!

My fiancée and I actually sought Doug out for counseling prior to our official premarital counseling. Right off the bat Doug made both of us feel comfortable. He listened to both my fiancée and I talk through our thoughts. We would say he made us feel understood and even more impressive he helped us to genuinely understand each other, ha. Through regular and premarital counseling, Doug gave us tons of practical tools to help us then and now. My now Husband and I would both recommend Doug! We are very thankful for him for how has helped us to relate better and grow a deeper friendship. Also we attended Doug's marriage seminar called the seven principals for making marriage work. That was one of the most helpful things we ever did for our relationship. The one day seminar was packed with super practical help and my husband and I frequently reference things we learned from that day. The seminar is also a nice environment to learn and get help that's a little less personally intense. If you are nervous about talking one on one with a counselor, this would definitely be a good/safe/comfortable environment to get some help.

William Cobb is a dedicated counselor. My husband and I went to him for pre-martial counseling. We were not sure of what to expect but William seemed genuinely interested in our emotional and spiritual growth. He was very helpful, thoughtful, asked critical questions and listened carefully to our answers. William will help you get down to the bottom of whatever problems you are facing and improve your understanding of yourself and your partner. He is highly professional, flexible and accommodating. I am very grateful for the pre-marital counseling that we received and would recommend him without question.

I highly recommend seeking help through Micaela. She offers great insight, a relaxed, non-judgemental environment, and an overall great therapy experience. She listens well and will tell you exactly what she sees about a situation whether it is good or bad news. Micaela is compassionate about her work and her clients. She has always answered me efficiently whenever I have questions or need a listening ear. And I am living a happier, more positive life since seeing her. I have seen a few different therapists from around the area in the past, and this is by far the best experience I have had. Micaela is outstanding at what she does.

She is an excellent counselor and teacher. When my wife and I had her. She made it an amazing experience for us. We went through her marriage counseling sessions and they were very informative and thought provoking. The activities we did helped my wife and I increase the love in our marriage and helped us grow.

It's an honor to be able to do this small thing for Rachel Asbury as a thank you for all that she has done for me. She has been my guide, anchor and counselor through some of the roughest times of my life. She is intuitive, compassionate, understanding and professional with me and has helped me to trust, and understand how to proceed through the murky waters that are my life. I feel that I am stronger and more able to move forward. It takes courage but she has assisted me in finding my own strengths and has been my support on the road towards mental health and a more productive life in both work and with my family. I will survive and she has been my guide to understanding how to do just that.

Brenda’s breadth of knowledge and many years of experience combined with her keen instincts give her a therapeutic edge, whether counseling for relationship issues or workplace challenges. I would recommend her to my own family.
