My husband and I are dong marriage counseling with John Weiman. He has been a Godsend for us. We are learning to listen, to communicate and to build our "love maps" together.
My then fiance' and I had hit a rough patch a little over a year ago and decided to take some time apart. My fiance' and I both knew that we loved each other very much, but for some reason it just wasn't working anymore. So we separated. And when I say separated I mean really separated, I left the west coast and returned to the midwest to be with my family. While home, I was having lunch with a friend (who I hadn't seen in years) and while we were catching up on all things life, she referred me to Rev. Rayfield Yarbrough, as she spoke highly of how he had been working with her and her then bf (they are engaged now!!) helping them to better understand one another and prepare them for engagement and ultimately marriage. I was open to talking to Rev. Yarbrough at the time, but wasn't quit sure how it would work with him being in Baltimore, me being in the midwest, and my fiance being on the west coast. But I (and my fiance were willing to give it a chance) we both agreed that we would neither restore or completely sever our relationship until we gave counseling a full faith effort. A few days after receiving the recommendation for Ray (he's a friend now) I emailed him to introduce myself and my fiance, give him an introduction to our issues and to ask if he could schedule some time. Instead of Ray emailing me back, he called me right away, and scheduled time to talk with us for the following weekend--this is the first testament of the excellent service we received. I flew back to be with my fiance a few days later and we had our first meeting with Ray via skype. Now, counseling via skype may seem like it would be too impersonal to be effective, but surprisingly it was very comfortable. For months my fiance and I met with Ray every few weeks via skpe. During our sessions, Ray prayed with and for us, taught us the importance of learning to speak the other's love languages, and coached us on how to best deal with some of our big issues that were impacting the way we shared love with one another. What we both liked about Ray is that he was fair. He never showed any bias towards either one of us; when we would have disagreements, he would always tell both of us how we were wrong and what each of us could have done differently to alleviate the tension. Additionally, he was very honest about whether or not we were ready for marriage. At one point early in our time with him, he told us to completely stop talking about marriage because while we were doing all the work necessary, we just weren't ready. Later in our time with him, he told us, "all of the issues you all are having can be alleviated through marriage." These two occurrences attest two things about Ray's ministry. First, he isn't just pushing marriage because two people are together. He only encourages and support marriages that he thinks are aligned with God's will. Secondly, this shows that over time, the progress we made with Ray was real. We went from him telling us to stop even thinking about marriage, to encouraging us to go ahead and get married because we had reached a point of true readiness. My fiance and I worked with Ray for over a year and he truly helped prepare us for marriage. We finally met Ray in person a couple of weeks ago when he flew to to California to marry us. When we met him, we all greeted with a hug, as it was just like we were seeing an old friend. Throughout our entire wedding weekend Ray was such an amazing help--going above and beyond to make sure our wedding day went smoothly. Long story short, Ray was an ultimate blessing to us. My then fiance and I were on our way to separation, but we had faith in God and saw Ray as a spiritual gift and now we can both say that our love is sweeter than it has ever been. With the help of Ray, we went from two people who were engaged and separated to now husband and wife who are inseparable. Ray's ability to support two individuals forging a union with God is truly a ministry. Ray will always be someone who we will reach out to as a support of our marriage. Not only was he our premarital counselor and wedding officiant but he is now our friend. Our marriage is our testimony. Both my husband and I have referred others to Ray. We truly believe in his work and his ministry.
Michael was very friendly and gave excellent marital advice to my wife and I. The exercises he had us perform really helped us with our communication barriers and how to resolve conflict before it escalates. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for an experienced, Christian counselor who can help build a stronger and lasting marriage.
My life and marriage a mess, I sought help from Lindsey to get me back on track towards happiness and satisfaction. Not only did I feel that I was her top priority, she was caring and professional and obviously knows what she is doing. I would recommend getting involved with Lindsey sooner than later as waiting did nothing but delay the cure for me. Pax vobiscum.
My wife and I sought out Marian's help to sort through some communication issues that were arising in the first year of our marriage. We picked Marian because her website was welcoming, she was prompt in her Thumbtack responses, and we were intrigued by the idea of having a therapy session with both her and her partner. I cannot tell you how I happy I am that we went with Find Your Sunshine. Marian and Clyde have, without exaggeration, changed the way my wife and I think of therapy. We look forward to our sessions, laugh throughout our time with them, and leave each session feeling lighter, more focused, and completely grateful that we have each other. Marian and Clyde provided us with concrete, easily-applied tools and exercises that have improved our communication and have inspired reflection and introspection. After only three sessions at Find Your Sunshine, my wife and I agree that our communication has become more direct, kind, and effective. We adore Clyde and Marian, and we are thrilled that they are a part of our marriage.
My wife and I have seen 3 prior marriage counselors, without progress. Since we've been with Sherrie, our marriage has markedly improved. Thank you Sherrie!!!
Pastor Milton is a highly committed servant of God. His marriage counseling sessions were carefully put together and covered many aspects of marriage that are contested issues in today's Union. My wife and I appreciated his counsels. The session provided a perspective on what a godly marriage entails and how to go about the very basics of our relationship. We were truly blessed by his services and would encourage Christians looking for a leap into a Godly Union to try him out.
To be honest, I cannot speak highly enough of Raffi. In just a couple of sessions, Raffi had already began to successfully impact our marriage. Both my wife and I continue to be impressed with him and our progress each week. He is genuine in his demeanor and sincere with his advice. He is patient with us and seems to balance when to listen versus when to overrule us perfectly. Most importantly, Raffi is nonjudgemental and does a fantastic job identifying and treating the source of the issue as opposed to merely dealing with the symptoms. We are especially grateful for his willingness to work with us despite running a significant amount of time over on numerous occasions. The value he has offered us is truly evident in our everyday lives.
Jamie was an amazing marriage counselor for us. She really helped us identify the issues that were holding us back as a couple. She taught us how to communicate better and understand so much more about ourselves. We highly recommend her.
I was the wedding coordinator for my sister who was married on July 11, 2014. Pastor Karen Hale, who is one of the Associate Pastors at Christian Unity Baptist Church, Waldorf, MD, was asked to stand in for the Senior Pastor who was unavailable to perform the wedding ceremony. We could not have received a better substitute! Pastor Karen Hale stepped up to the plate at a moments notice, without hesitation. I provided all of the wedding information to her a week or so prior to the wedding. She recommended various changes for the ceremony, which my sister and I both agreed upon. Pastor Karen Hale was prompt on the wedding day. As a matter of fact, she sat patiently as she waited over an hour before the wedding commenced due to the brides delay! She was very friendly and personable to the wedding guests. In addition, she displayed professionalism during the entire event. To top it off, Pastor Karen Hale has a beautiful voice which was displayed when she sang a song during the ceremony. I highly recommend Pastor Karen Hale for weddings and other ceremonies! Pastor Karen Hale did an awesome job!
Awesome marriage counselor and minister for weddings. Dave and Patti are great examples of what marriage is.
My wife (then fiancee) and I had a great time doing pre-marital counseling with Dr. Defoe. He was funny, fresh, and found intuitive ways to help us approach the reality of our relationship and upcoming marriage. We've been married for 3 years now and are thankful for the down-to-earth advice we received.
Tamara has been a wonderful counselor for my husband and I. She is thorough and very objective. She has helped us work through issues and enhance our marriage! We are so grateful we found her and would recommend her to anyone that needs help with their relationships or marriage.
I would I have never gone to a counselor on my own. So when my wife suggested I sit down and talk to Omega, I was hesitant. When I was ready she listened and did not judge me. She then helped me realize I had to be accountable for my wrong doings and take the steps needed to change my situation. I am forever grateful to Omega for her honest(at times blunt) advice. I still call her when I need her, change takes time
Before I got married, my husband & I had marital counseling with Rev Jarvis and it helped us a lot. Our communication wasn't where it needed to be, but once Rev Jarvis counseled us, our communication got so much better and understood one another on a deeper level. Since all three of us was in different areas, she counseled us over oovoo. She taught us how to communicate, budget, compromise, etc. She, also, brought us closer to God and showed how important it is to have God in the midst of our marriage. She would have us work on a certain area in our relationship until we met again with another counseling session. After we completed, we were ready for marriage. Rev Jarvis married my husband and I and I appreciate her and all she has done. My husband and I are going to continue to go to counseling with her to build our marriage up more. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Working with Caitlin for several sessions over the years, I find she is able to validate the areas of my life (my marriage, time management, pregnancy anxiety, child rearing, interpersonal relationships, work/home balance)I wished to improve in my life, offering practical guidance and encouragement that I believed I could excel. I've had mostly one-on-one sessions and I have attended workshops on time management and another on strengthening my marriage. Caitlin is very professional--I found her organized, attentive and thorough. She made herself available when I had to reschedule sessions and she would follow up with me on her own time if she knew I was going through a challenging experience. She is one of the most top-quality people I have ever met. I enjoy her personality--she's to the point yet incorporates much humor. I worked with her mainly when she lived in New Jersey but have reached out to her on occasion now that she is in Maryland because I consider her refreshingly insightful and positive. I would highly recommend working with her.
I am an experienced Marriage and Family Therapist. Recently I attended a one day training conducted by Keith Miller. The training was excellent. Keith is clearly one of the most experienced, knowledgeable and effective marriage counselors not just in this area but in the country. His book "Love Under Repair" is a must read for any couple looking for help in improving their relationship. As a prominent trainer for other professional marriage counselors, his knowledge and expertise coupled with his caring and compassionate attitude ensure that any therapist attending his training will benefit greatly from the knowledge and techniques that he shares. Keith's passion for sharing his expertise benefits not only his own clients but the clients of the many counselors he trains. He is truly excellent.
I went out seeking a marriage counselor to help repair my marriage and found Dorina. It was important to me to find someone who could empathize with my situation as well as coach me through some of the more challenging aspects. Dorina offered the first appointment free so I could get a feel for her coaching style which was very helpful in making my decision. We hit it off right away and she has been very helpful in my progress. She offers reasonable rates, packages and payment plans. She's awesome, would recommend her to anyone who is seeking help for one on one or for couples.
