My husband and I went to Vladimire for marriage counseling. Vladimire is very easy to talk to and provide insightful and nonjudgemenyal input in a gentle way. She doesnt forget about you after your session....she messages small messages of positivity and advice in between sessions which somehow always seem to apply. She has suggested journaling assignments between sessions which can be difficult, thought provoking and groundbreaking if you decide to put in the effort. She is culturally empathetic. She is also flexible and accommodating to busy schedules. She never let's you leave unresolved just because time is up. You end up feeling like you are sharing with a good friend who cares for both of your well beings as individuals and as a whole equally.
My husband and I started marriage counseling and are making progress in a very short amount of time. She is very good.
Very kind and has an awesome godly personality. I would recommend him to anyone. Loved that he offers marriage counseling services as well.
He provided marriage counseling to us before our wedding 4.10.15. He was very kind to us and wasn't judgmental. He is a man of God and he sowed greatly into our lives. If you need someone reliable he's your guy. He is highly recommended by me.
Vlada was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She is very professional, and down to earth. From the time we first met to discuss the wedding day, and the wedding day itself I cannot say enough. My family and my wife and I loved her, and look forward to seeing her again!!!
Andrae & Lys are an amazing couple their counseling and motivational speaking sessions are amazing. I recommend them to anyone who is in need of marital, emotional, or life counseling. You will be pleased.
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)
Alison has helped me already. My life isn't perfect. My marriage isn't perfect, in fact sometimes it's still strained, but we're moving forward and it hasn't been long. I understand myself better, and my wife. Alison is able to see things without being judgmental. She never insists I do things a certain way, just makes suggestions and guides me. I feel much more hopeful and positive thanks to Alison.
Ed has been really patient and good about giving us tools, as a couple trying to save our marriage, to help us communicate more. It's been a slow and gradual process but he is really easy to open up to and I always feel better after one of our sessions.
I was referred to Gary Katz by a friend of mine. After my experience I highly recommend the services. I used his services for couples relationship counseling. My relationship with my partner was in shambles. He was able to get us back on track by really listening to us and providing real options for our situation. He provided a safe and comfortable environment for us to address uncomfortable issues. We had issues with trust and communications. He gave us different activities to help us be more successful with our communication and to rebuild trust. I must mention that although I was there for couples counseling, the information I learned during my sessions help to save and better other relationships at work and with my family. I am really appreciative of my experience and highly recommend The NY Center For Healthy Relationships, Intimacy, and Sexuality for anyone seeking to better their quality of life.
As a counseling practioner, I use discretion when selecting my own therapist and marriage counselor. Tina quickly picks up the pulse of each individual as well as the dynamic between them. Her incisive and insightful comments are offered judiciously. She maintains high standards of integrity viz. HIPAA. Her availability is flexible for working couples. She balances being a caring person and professional. I highly recommend her for couples and individual therapy based on my experience with her in both areas. S.
Dr. Thompson provide counseling after the death of my son. She's a very compassionate and caring professional that guided me through the most difficult event in my life.
Pastor Christine provided marriage counseling and the right tools to communicate with my spouse and conflict resolution. We worked on how I can be understanding more of my spouse feelings and expectations. I have recommended her to friends of mine who are going through counseling now.
Heather has been my therapist for over 2 years. She is an incredibly caring and gifted professional who consistently goes the extra mile for her clients. She has supported me through some extremely difficult times and has helped me tremendously. She is a highly skilled, knowledgeable, and empathetic counselor who puts her client's well being above all else. There is not enough room in this box to say how very grateful I am to Heather for her presence in my life. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a therapist or a life coach. She is a rare gem and I feel lucky to have found her.
