We decided to use Michelle for our premarital counseling. She was very professional and made us feel relaxed immediately. We felt it was well worth investing the extra money for the counseling and it helped us discover things we didn't even realize we hadn't discussed before. It was great! When it came time for our wedding day, we felt more confident than ever about our future together. On the day of our wedding, she was there an hour early to make sure that everything was set up correctly and would run smoothly. She also met with our vendors to go over any questions they may have. Most importantly, she made us feel relaxed and comfortable, when we were both pretty nervous.

We would highly recommend Deb. We are working with her on strengthening our marriage. She offers In-home counseling, is on time with her appointments, is very honest, has empathy, provides respect and fairness to each individual. She also provides us with a lot of feedback to help us move forward as quickly as possible with our issues.

Deb has been a great therapist! I was having a very rough time before I started meeting with her. She's very easy to talk to and will form a plan of action on what you can do, which I love! Deb is also very flexible and will work around your schedule. I would definitely recommend her!

About my experience in dealing with Todd Smith ... after having had a successful career as a healthcare administrator and entrepreneur which enabled me to retire at the age of 52, I decided at the age of 65 that is was time for me to "give back" to society and do something constructive. So, I got a job as a school bus driver for the Eden Prairie, MN school system. I love young kids and felt this opportunity would enable me to help young people grow in maturity. After only a few months on the job, I quickly realized that I was failing miserably in dealing with the kids. As a father of three children and six grandkids, I thought I had all the requisite skills and experience to be a good influence on the kids on my bus. I was confused and almost heartbroken to realize that I could not successfully drive the kids back and forth to school while at the same time helping them mature. In truth, many of the kids on my bus were out of control and doing things that were actually counter productive to their growth in maturity. I thought seriously about going back into retirement. I was very close to quitting one day feeling like a total failure when Todd Smith got permission from management to ride along on my bus and help me learn some better skills for managing the children. The kids were misbehaving on my bus. I needed to earn their respect. My goal was to learn some techniques to better control their behavior. Todd coached me in many techniques including positive reinforcement, caring interactions, and the use of logical consequences. I needed to have better boundaries and not let the kids walk all over me - but to do it in a kind way. Todd was very kind to the kids which made me happy but also very direct in this approach ... giving me concrete instructions and homework. It was like a workshop in good parenting skills. As a result, I was able to keep my job and develop a satisfying relationship with the kids on my bus. Todd is a magnificent teacher. His guidance for me, even at the age of 65, was life changing. I can highly recommend Todd to help you achieve your own goals.

I chose to work with Todd Smith for many reasons. His free interview is a nice touch and shows an ethical commitment to allowing potential clients to meet him and interview him before spending money. It is also a nice touch that his fee is reasonable! I sought relationship coaching with my wife after working with a counselor that was a good listener but offered very little direction. So we decided to try the coaching approach. Todd offers the best of both worlds - having the knowledge, insight, and background of an experienced counselor and the skill to motivate, teach, and promote change of a life coach. We feel so fortunate to have found him and highly recommend him to those who are highly motivated to do the challenging work of change and growth!

Todd helped Taos (NM) Orthopaedic Institute and me during our formative years, to improve staff communications and relations with business associates. Todd listens carefully, shares insight based on knowledge and experience, and sees the big picture with regard to opportunities and solutions when helping to analyze difficult relationships or situations.

My husband and I have been to counseling a couple different times throughout our 7 year marriage, each with multiple sessions. We find John very helpful and we are very comfortable talking with him. We feel he really listens so he can understand us before just throwing out advice. He has always been a positive mentor and we will continue to go back even if our marriage has improved.

My wife and Ihave been seeing Jon for the past three months. We were at a very low point in our relationship. We learned how to respectfully say what we feel about what happens in our lives. In 3 months we have gone from being ready to call it quits to really starting to enjoy our life together

Jon is extremely intuitive, attentive listener and genuinely seems to care. Even after our 1st session, I could tell that he is the counselor I not only want, but desperately need. Thanks, Jon.

Tahmi is an excellent therapist. She is worth every penny and then some extra brownie points for being so awesome. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She is very conversational in her approach and everything she has to offer as far as technical and life advice she is very helpful. If you have a session with her, you will sit on a couch or a chair and tell her what you're comfortable telling her. She never pries for information and she helps you think about your problems in a way that doesn't minimize them, but helps you think about them in a different way than you would by yourself. I am so glad that I went on this site and contacted her 2 months ago. I can't recommend her highly enough!!

Chris was awesome, he met with my wife and I about an hour before the ceremony. In that time he met and greeted my wife, family & friends. Got me to feel comfortable and not so nervous even told us all a little about himself. When it came to the ceremony he was able to complete it exactly how I wanted. I asked for it to be simple and sweet, and gave exactly that and also acknowledged that I just wanted to get to our marriage and not be so concerned with the wedding. My marriage ceremony was small and simple and when I do decide to have a wedding I would definitely choose to use him again. And I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. Also it was awesome to find out that we were his first same-sex couple.

Amazing counselor, we had a few skeletons in our closet, so to speak, and Chris worked through them with us. The wedding itself went very well and because he had gotten to know us in counseling, it had a personal touch to it as well. Could not have asked for more.

Chris Spang served as the Pastor for my Son's Wedding...Chris is absolutely wonderful. He could not have been better, from providing excellent pre-marital counseling all the way through the actual Wedding ceremony, Chris was stellar!

I was going through a really rough time. I felt scared,worthless, had no confidence, had lost my faith, and was not sure what the future held. My counselor was wonderful and really helped me. My faith has been restored and I am more confident, successful, and happier than I have ever been. I would not be where I am today without my counselor and I know I can always see her if I need to.

I've know John for several years. We've worked together in business and ministry. John isn't a fresh out of school naive kid or someone with no real world experience. John's wisdom comes both from experience and Godly wisdom. If you're looking for a cardigan wearing, Ned Flanders christian counselor, John is NOT your guy. Lastly, and most importantly, I trust John.

John was great to work with from the very beginning. He was flexible on our meeting locations and very prompt to communicate with us be it by phone or email. The rehearsal and wedding day went by flawlessly and we were very pleased to have John be a part of our day. Thank you!

Our family sought Anna's expertise during and in the years following my divorce. Without going into great detail, my case was a very complicated and multi-faceted one. There were many factors the 2 children needed help working through, and Anna was amazing with them from beginning to end. Her compassion for her clients is overwhelming, as is her ability to connect and forge a strong trusting relationship. Because I know it was an important element to myself choosing a counselor, I'll add that she also presents herself very well professionally should attorneys and judges become necessary. I would recommend her to anyone seeking family counseling. My children adore her and I am forever grateful for her. We would not be where we are today if not for her guidance and dedication.

Anna was great for our premarital counseling! She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped to tailor our sessions to topics that fit us. She is very personable and super easy to talk to. We highly recommend Anna to any couples looking for premarital counseling and will use her services again in the future if needed!

An "eye opening" experience. Anna was able to not only help save our marriage but allowed my wife and I to become better communicators. We are stronger now than every before.

I would recommend Noelle to anyone. I believe she helped create a solid foundation in our pre-marital counseling & I truly believe that she helped save out marriage during challenging times. Noelle guided us in a non-judge mental manner. She gave us hope. She gave us homework to work on at home to use the tools she had taught us in our sessions. I honestly looked forward to meeting with her. I'm very thankful to have Noelle in my life & quite honestly - I'm not convinced my marriage would have survived without her. Again, I would recommend Noelle to anyone. She is professional, trustworthy, respectable, accountable...,I can't say enough good things.

My husband and I see Alexa for couples therapy. One of our main goals has been to work on better communication. Alexa has a very positive and nurturing approach that is very focused on the needs of both partners. She is extremely knowledgeable in the latest research in the field of marriage therapy. The initial online assessment that both partners take is very helpful in assisting her in making an informed assessment of each partner seeking therapy. Through the assessment, she was able to identify the strengths and areas where my husband in I needed the most help in our relationship. Through our work with Alexa, my husband and my relationship has really improved. When we first began therapy I thought my situation was hopeless, but now after 9 months, I feel full of hope. I highly recommend Alexa as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

1. I am trained in Marriage and Family therapy. This is otherwise called systems theory. It presents principles that work. I can offer ideas that make sense and provide a specific direction you can use to enhance your relationship. 2. I am affiliated with the Directory of Marriage-Friendly Therapists - dedicated to supporting relationships. Signals will not be sent that perhaps you aren't right for each other. 3. I can also work with individuals cognitively to discover why they do what they do. 4. I am trained in providing specific ways to improve communication and conflict-resolution. 5. I provide support, encouragment, insight, direction, specific principles, experiential training and creative approaches to therapy. 6. I can also attend to the spiritual if the person / couple desire. I am more than familiar with branches of world religion and Christian faith. I don't believe we can segment ourselves from the spiritual. On the other hand, people who do not wish to go there will find good psychology also practiced that can enhance their life.


Couples learn to recognize the cycle that interferes with connection and how to get the love and intimacy they are longing for through the use of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). Location and length of session flexibility available.
