Rose, Dr. Marchick, anything you want to call her...is nothing short of amazing! Last year I was seeking counseling due to relationship issues in addition to a recent loss of a parent. After visiting several counselors, their approach or personality was just not the right fit, and I wanted to give up altogether. My experience with counseling in the past has left me feeling sometimes more broken and I personally struggled with embarrassment for seeking counseling in the first place. After a quick chat on the phone with Rose, I immediately felt comfortable and couldn't wait to begin sessions! She is a no non-sense woman, and this type of personality brings out my true honest self. Her optimism and the way she frames other ways to look at issues, is truly what makes each session worth it. I feel like I bring home something special in my heart each time I leave. Sometimes it's something I learn about myself, and sometimes it's something I learn about others. I've recommended Dr. Rose to several people and you will too!
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.
When faced with an irreparable eight-year marriage (due to infidelity) and a child in the mix, my spouse and I never thought genuine reconciliation was possible for our family. Both of us were extremely skeptical of professional counseling due to a horribly biased past experience with another counselor. Though reluctant at first, we searched for help one last time--knowing our issues were too big and too many for us to solve on our own. By chance (or fate), we found Doris House and nearly six months later, my wife and I have recommitted to one another in a way unlike never before--and for the first time in our marriage the road ahead is brighter than ever thought possible. Sure, there are cheaper counsellors out there... but I assure you, every penny we've spent has been returned to us a hundred fold in her guidance, experience, compassion and professionalism! I'd recommend Doris to anyone seeking guidance in life, regardless of the matter. If you need help, don't wait--contact Doris. You'll be glad you did.
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
She's everything I've looked for in a counselor for years and didn't find. She's got the couch, low lighting and soft voice; she listens, makes suggestions and, in my case, sent me on my way feeling a lot more hopeful than when I went in.
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!
Melinda is a pleasure to work with. She makes you feel at ease and respected. Her thoughtful insight is always helpful and provides much needed perspective to every matter that I see her about. I’d highly recommend Melinda for someone seeking a counselor who is professional, knowledgeable, and non-judgmental.
Michael is a gifted counselor, helping people to see biblical principles as they seek to improve their relationships, their outlook and their situations.
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.
Best counselor I've ever met! Amazing and she actually listens to what you have to say not just that standard crap.
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 Shriner tops the list of skilled and effective counselors Ive had the pleasure of working with.

I would recommend her to my own family.
