Rose has been a blessing to our family! She has been very helpful to my daughter as well as myself teaching us ways to handle stress and anxiety as well as the day to day issues that cause depression. She's straight forward, involving you in your treatment giving you "homework"to strengthen your abilities with whatever issues you are facing. Very personable, always prepared for your appointment. And she is a fountain of knowledge! Her experience supercedes that of any previous therapist I have ever encountered. She is 100% involved with your sessions, and has exceeded my expectations of a therapist. I highly recommend Dr. Marchick for counseling from couples to children and teenagers as well as adults. We always leave feeling better about the issues she's addressing with us.
Cheryl is very responsive and also very friendly and professional. We are currently doing our premarital counseling sessions with her.
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
Latasha did amazing job at my wedding. She was not only the day of coordinator but also our officiant and so much more; friend, counselor, money manager, you name it she had it under control. She went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure that everything was taken care of on my special day. She truly made things go so much better I don't know what i would have done with out her. I will recommend to everyone I know.
My fiancee and I went to Doris for premarital counseling. She is very attune to the needs of the couple and sets up an appropriate strategy to meet your goals.
Angela is working with us with couples counseling as well as personal counseling. Angela we feel is very professional. She got to work immediately in the first visit. She took time to find out about us and our spirituality and religion then showed us how to use it to our benefit. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed right from the start. We are so happy we've found her. I recommend her highly.
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.
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.
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 has been a huge blessing to our family. Our daughter and now son-in-law went to Michael for premarital counseling which is sort of like a car inspection for marriage. After hearing about all the wise and insightful things that Michael had to share with them, we knew that he was the person we wanted to go to for the problems we were having with our much older model. It had been making noises for years and the check engine light was flashing red. We met with Michael several times and were both impressed with how he was able to cut to cut through to the heart of our issues and show us how to work on fixing what was broken. We can't recommend Michael enough!
After becoming engaged, we asked William Cobb to lead us through premarital counseling. He was very accommodating of our schedules and had us talk about issues that we hadn't addressed prior to marriage. I believe that by guiding us through these topics and helping us to talk through them, we were able to start our marriage with the expectations in full view. That was 17 years ago and we are still going strong today.
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. Brendas 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.
