Nothing short of mind blowing and life changing! If you are looking for a way to get your life and spiritual health back on track and want to work on becoming the best person you can be, then I highly suggest going to Richer Life Journey! Especially if you are stuck in a rut or feeling depressed, fatigued and desperate need of a jump start and guidance. I see Molly Ryan at the Richer Life Journey Center. I have a chronic illness, had been very fatigued and feeling really lost and depressed. Main stream medical has failed me so I wanted to try some less conventional types of treatments to see if I could at least get my energy up and centered. I didn't know to much about reiki other than it cleans up your energy and centers it. First off Molly is an amazing and gifted woman. She is compassionate and truly wants to help people. I go in there a mess and a scatter brain and leave feeling special, grounded and truly loved by her. I feel like I am important and I do count. That is a gift within itself . Not only is Molly a reiki master, but she is also a medium and intuitive healer. I had no clue what I was in for. I feel she is one of those gifted people you see on TV or read about. I have been getting the color and sound reiki sessions. It's over an hour long and in just a few minutes I am deeply relaxed. Buckets of stress wash away. Durring the sessions there are sounds and smells. I can physically feel a shift durring this time as spirit works through her. The more times I went the more I could "feel" durring the sessions. It was quite exciting and even more so when we discussed it together latter and found we shared similar experiences durring our time together. Equally important and impressive is the period after the session where she discusses with you what information she received from you and spirit. Yes she is very gifted and can tap into all of that. I actually tag on an extra half an hour of counseling also. I believe she may be a certified Councelor or has some sort of degree also. But durring the time after the session she explains what she saw as she worked with each individual chakra and if need be, things to be worked on and or adjusted in your life. This part of the session was mind blowing. She knew things about me that she could not have possibly known. Some of the things I did not even know or recognize at the time! For instance my inner voice is very negative twords myself and that certain things in my past regarding my family were still impacting me in a negative way. She not only points these things out to you but she also directs you to the begining point on working on them in a positive constructive way. I have to say that working with Molly helped me open up my eyes to a whole new world and with her help and loving direction she guided me to a point where I was able to work on myself and was able to achieve a level of inner happiness, peace and ballance. I looked at things differently and approached obstacles in a different manner. After just a few sessions I felt more grounded than I had in years. I understand myself more, have a plan and I feel a lot better and have more energy. Molly made me feel special and loved. She is a beautiful compassionate and gifted woman. Positive energy just radiates from her and through her tallent. She truly cares about you as an individual and has a calling to help people. With her gift and her big heart that is exactly what she does. I highly recommend Molly if you are looking to try reiki I can't recommend her enough and highly recommend doing the extra counceling session at the end to go over the session thoroughly and to gain her experienced insight and guidance. Meeting and working with Molly has been a life altering experience for me and I feel a closeness to her and consider her my mentor, my shaman and my friend. She helped me find myself again and to no longer be defined by my illness. Stacey Carbary
Michael is the best counselor I have ever been to. He's kind, thoughtful, and he really listens. He's the first person who ever truly made me feel heard. He is a great counselor who cares a lot about his clients and truly wishes to see them well. In hindsight, there is nothing I think he could have done better to help me. He was and still is excellent.
I spoke to many life coaches during my search for a coach, before I talked to Marc, and even during my first phone conversation with him, I knew he was the one I was going to choose. This is because of his startling directness. He was unique and the insights he shared with me on his interpretation of my behavior were profound and I left our first conversation with a different perspective. He put a lot of effort into contacting me via different avenues (phone, email, and other websites). Then when I was dragging my feet on filling out the paperwork he sent me and didn't complete it by the time I had said I would, he surprised me by telling me that he was disappointed and used it as the first lesson in accountability and respectng others' time. He said that if I'm looking for a "comfortable" coach, he isn't the one for me. However, after I learned Marc's style, I do feel very comfortable with sharing things with him and getting his advice. He isn't like other coaches in that you feel your sessions are very tailored specifically to what you want them to be about. He doesn't let you ramble on about the problem or 'how that makes you feel' but keeps the conversations focused to make the most out of every session. He has flexibility about whether sessions are done in person or on the phone but he does encourage meeting in person every couple weeks. His price is very affordable for the personalized and effective work he does. I recommend Marc to anyone who is ready to see themselves for who they really are and make changes to a better life with more clarity. See Marc before you go to spend time and money on a psychotherapist or counselor too!
My name is Pam and I'm a 59 year old woman who is here today because of Christ' hand on my life and the people He has brought into my life. There is no doubt in my mind that the Good Lord brought Cheryl Salto, my Life/Faith Coach, into my life. Our first meeting was over five years ago, and at that time I was very depressed and emotionally beaten down. My life's circumstances and situation left me feeling very much alone and hopeless. Cheryl's skills, insight, compassion, wisdom and most of all her heart saw me through the darkest, loneliest time of my life. Months of learning how to set boundaries, reprogramming my backwards and negative thoughts, building a new chapter in my life, learning God's Word pertaining to me and realizing I needed to take care of myself, was spent with this amazing woman. She was patient, filled with acceptance, listened and validated what I had to say and always made me feel comfortable and loved. Her dedication to reaching others who are hurting, and helping them goes beyond anything I've ever seen. Her empathy is God sent and anyone who is blessed to be a recipient of her gifts is truly blessed beyond measure. I have had two children who have fought depression, anxiety, drug addiction and suicidal issues along with an alcoholic husband of the past 30 years. I have seen over 30 professional psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors and counselors for myself and my family. From my experience, I can honestly tell you, it's like 'finding a needle in a haystack' a professional who genuinely cares and who can help. I exhausted all medical fields from every direction and they did more damage to our family than good. Now, I know there are good doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists and counselors in the field, I am just rendering my opinion of what my experience has been. I was forced by a friend to see Cheryl and very reluctantly went to our first appointment. It was God from the start because I know without a doubt He sent me to Cheryl. She received me with so much acceptance and love that I knew I was on the road to recovery and healing. With God's hand and Cheryl's gifts I learned to love myself again, forgive others, most importantly forgive myself, set boundaries and start living again with joy in my heart. I'm still on the journey but now I have tools that will help see me through whatever life brings. Since I stopped seeing Cheryl my beloved dog passed away, my dad whom I cared for over 6 months passed away, and my husband died unexpectantly in the year 2016. Cheryl stood by me and walked with me through ALL of it. Those who have lost loved ones, know how friends and family become scarce when it comes to death. Not so with Cheryl Salto! She pressed in, met me where I felt the pain, extended tenderness and care so I could survive the pain. When my life and heart were shattered she helped me keep my heart open in the midst of the nightmare and taught me not to lose sight of loving and living again. She was so supportive, always making me feel comfortable and 'normal', no matter what my state of mind was. She stood by me while I acknowledged my own broken heart with a sense of respect and reverence that honored my 'reality'. She was one of the rare ones that allowed me to be seen and heard, always meeting me in my pain, never denying what I was feeling but supporting me, validating my emotions and giving me breathing room to what I found wholly unbearable. Cheryl helped me to be brave. To wake up each day when I really didn't want to. To feel my pain, experience it and acknowledge it. She let me pour my heart out when it was shattered into a million different pieces and I knew it could never be made right again. Cheryl is an amazing life coach because she allowed me to be me, right where I was, in the middle of the pain. She never tried to force any 'stages' or time lines on me. She didn't dismiss me or walk away. I've learned from Cheryl, and my experience, that grief is as individual as love: every life, every path, every experience, is unique. Cheryl helped me get through many dark times in my life. She has amazing gifts of empathy and love for the hurting. She is truly a 'golden nugget' in the sea of pebbles! In many ways she saved my life and put hope back in my heart. My journey is far from over but I will be forever and eternally grateful to this wonderful woman. How do you say 'thank you' to someone who helped you breathe again and give you your life back? I guess you could say I found 'the needle in the haystack'!!! Thank you Lord for bringing this woman, Cherly Salto, into my life. To You God, be the glory and honor! Amen
About two months away from our wedding day in 2015, my wife (fiancée at that time) and I were grateful to be introduced to Alain and Danielle by a church friend as our wedding counselor. They are a wonderful couple most importantly; because, their teaching are very transparent and practical. It is obvious that Alain and Danielle are Men and woman of God. During the weekly counseling sessions, every time we walked out of the office, Nephthalie and I have learned so much; our perception of relationship specifically in marriage was revealed. Now, it has been seven months since Nephthalie and I got married. We applied those principle on a daily basis. The sessions were very significant. From the teaching received, we have the magic key needed to solve any problem for a successful marriage. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a marital or relationship counselor.
Very knowledgeable. Talks from experience. Can relate well to parents concerns over childrens nutrition and eating habits. Gives great advice that can easily be applied.
A very patient, attentive, and able to put himself in ones shoes to see the big picture thus being able to get to the root of the issue, not just a feel good temporary bandaid approach like many counselors I've known.
Mieka was a wealth of knowledge, and did wonders on my neck and back. We had some technical difficulties the day of my appointment and she was nothing but accommodating. When we met she spent a lot of time talking to me, and educating me. She is clearly a pro. I can't wait to go back, and have already sent her name over to some friends and family.
Testimonial: Individual Therapy A bit less than a year ago, following a series of unfortunate events in my life, I had reached a really low point. Emotionally, mentally and physically drained, I knew that I needed to find the strength to continue living, and out of sheer desperation, I finally reached out to Rita, It was the best decision I ever made. Over the past 10 months, she has helped me experience growth that for me was unimaginable. In a loving and compassionate manner, she has helped me to identify both the destructive behavior patterns that led to my subsequent bouts of depression as well as the traumatic events and family history that contributed to the creation of these destructive patterns. Most importantly, she has taught me how to change these destructive patterns and replace them with positive, healthy, self-affirming ones. In less than a year, Rita has positively influenced almost every aspect of my life. I am learning to identify and arrest addictive behaviors, replace negative thought patterns with positive self-talk and eliminate unhealthy behaviors and toxic people from my life. I am practicing self-love and becoming my best self. As a result, my marriage and family relationships have improved and my career continues to blossom. I have lost over 45 pounds and I am finally learning what it means to be truly happy, healthy and whole -- mind, body and spirit. I am learning to clearly identify my goals and attain them. I totally attribute my growth to working with Rita. There is an old saying: The sick mind doesnt know that its sick. Whether it is in your personal or professional life, Rita's incredible talent lies in her ability to assist you with identifying (and sometimes just acknowledging) the source of your pain or whatever it is that may be holding you back. More importantly, she accompanies you on the path of self-healing, and provides the tools necessary to complete the journey. That is Ritas gift to her clients. It is a gift that is priceless. --Anonymous in Massachusetts
