Ernie was awesome! I had my ceremony on sand island in the columbia. We weren't exactly sure what to expect and just did things at the last minute. When we got to the island we ended up having to take our shoes off and the guys had to roll up their pant to jump into two feet of water. Ernie was a great sport and jumped right in. The ceremony didn't exactly go how I thought it would but Ernie definitely made up for everything m
Tammy was a wonderful addition to the team of caregivers providing support to my father; he was recently diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer and was estimated with 2-4 weeks to live. Since we’ve moved him to hospice, he’s lost strength and become very foggy. Tammy rearrranged her scheduled when we expressed fear that he may not be alive three days from now, showed up to the hospice on time, and my father - in the middle of the session and for the first time in days - opened his eyes wide and introduce himself to her. We will undoubtedly bring her back into our care circle, and can’t express our gratitude for her work enough.
It's been an absolute pleasure working with Scott! From day one he's exhibited professionalism, tremendous energy, and the ability to custom tailor workouts to achieve my noteably aggressive goals. I came to Scott already in good shape having spent a great deal of time in the gym. I was looking to mix things up, and learn new ways to push myself. You can tell how much Scott enjoys what he does. It comes through every day in the gym. He was always eager and excited to throw new challenges my way. His knowledge of health and fitness shined each time he broke down a new exercise for me, walking through the form, the muscles impacted, and the desired result. As someone with a passion for fitness and already solid baseline of knowledge, I was blown away with how much I was able to take away from each session. I can emphatically say that my sessions with Scott were a success! I highly recommend him to folks at any fitness level that are trying achieve new fitness and health goals. Thank you Scott!!
Scott is very down to earth and earnest in his approach to help couples have a happier and healthier relationship. Our first meeting we discussed or goals for therapy and Scott gave my husband and I a run down on his background and experience. Since then we have been working on basic issues such as communication, budgeting and finances, things we value and find important. Overall, I feel this has strengthened our relationship and made it so we appreciate one another more. I'm really glad we found Scott. He's been a great help.
Coach Willis did an amazing job with the team bonding event he held for my varsity girls basketball team. He kept them engaged the whole time and had value with the message he was telling them. The girls were able to open up and feel relaxed around him. They were able to apply his message to their own lives and to their basketball game. The coaches even got involved with the games and activities. I would highly recommend having Coach Willis speak or run a team bonding event. His passion and commitment to the process is undeniable. My girls still ask about him and want him to speak to them again.
Great Massage, very knowledgeable and will be going back again
A great motivational person to work with. She made me feel comfortable and kept me encouraged!! Unfortunately she doesn't live in Texas to work with more!! I had a great time and she made me forget how uncomfortable I was to be in a gym.
Alex with Vanguard fitness has been a very motivating personal trainer. From the personalized workouts designed to help reach my goals, to the attention he puts in to every rep that I do, ensuring I get the absolute most out of my workouts. He has pushed me past my comfort zone in an encouraging manner that I could’ve never done on my own. If you are looking for real deal fitness, Alex is your man!
My husband and I were very lucky to have found Olive. We called her for guidance in our marriage and business issues. She's been patient, professional and to the point. She knows how to dig deep and get to the root of things. I highly recommend her for any challenges you are experiencing in your personal or professional life.
I decided to try hypnosis for weight loss at the recommendation of a friend. I was just so tired of trying and failing all the diets and feeling worse and worse about myself. From the first phone call Dale made me feel comfortable and at ease talking about my problems and fears. His sessions were really enlightening. I thought my weight problem was just about bad food choices but he helped me realize it was really emotional. I lost about 50 lbs and more importantly my stress and anxiety got so much better! I had no idea those things were even connected. Now I feel in control of my health and emotions and I feel good in my body. Dale is so professional and explained how everything worked so I could understand. He was also really kind and never made me feel judged. He was easy to work with and I felt right away that he could really understand and could really help me. I highly recommend Dale to anyone whose dealing with weight issues and stress/anxiety.
Mike offered his coaching when I was going through a very challenging time in my life. Divorce. My life was entering new territory, I was a mess, and relations with my kids were not easy. Mike offered advice and thoughts that hit at many levels. From what good growth could come out of the mire to practical advice for being available to my kids. Mike did not sugar-coat things. He has a depth of experience and core of compassion that combine to make him an exceptional life or spiritual coach.
There are so many counselors, healers, therapists, lifestyle gurus and professional advice-givers out there that it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the choices. As a mother of three, I've spent who knows how much time and money looking for effective support for my family's health, only to find superficial, time consuming programs that may produce short-lived results (that require constant re-upping to maintain any effectiveness), but never really get to the heart of what we need. Nothing I've tried has come close to the kind of immediate, deep affect that working with Krista has provided. Her methods are so gentle and intuitive that it's hard to believe the powerful results. Within a week of our first hour-long session, my energy and sense of well-being were raised dramatically. I felt clearer and more confident in my body's ability to heal and was amazed when the results started reaching beyond the original issue for which I had sought her out. Five years later, I don't hesitate to turn to Krista first for all of my and my family's health questions, from nutrition to mental/emotional and relationship dilemmas. Her compassionate manner and truly holistic approach have given me the support I've needed to overcome blocks and reach my goals, without the confusing and often guilt-inducing yo-yo effect I've experienced with other practitioners. She understands that our lives aren't cookie-cutter and our issues aren't compartmentalized, and so is able to invest in the whole client and get to the actual root of a problem, instead of just temporarily easing the symptoms. If you've tried all the healthy living fads, diet programs, all the different therapies, alternative and conventional, and are still feeling stuck, please set up an appointment with Krista, and get ready for a breakthrough!
As a psychologist I worked with Dr. Devore in a managed care setting where I got to know his abilities and personality well. He brings a great deal compassion and dedication to his patients and has outstanding skills that lead to change and healing. I would happily recommend that anyone seeking psychotherapy consider working with Dr. Devore. -Brian Uhlin, PhD, Clinical Psychologist.
I did a cleanse with Teri that was amazing. She sent daily support and words of wisdom that kept me focused and on the right track to healthier eating. It went so well that I continued on it for 2 months longer than I needed to. My acid reflux has disappeared, I've lost weight and I have so much more energy.
I drink – consciously and comfortably. But it took a lot of awareness and thought, which I was able to achieve through Teresa’s insightful help. Alcohol played a role in my childhood, where I would see my mother drinking multiple goblets of white wine every night. I know now that she was medicating chronic depression. As I entered my forties, I found myself doing the same thing, but didn’t worry too much because “it was just a few glasses of white wine.” Then life got harder, what with life challenges, including caring for my aging parents and a brother on disability. I give myself credit for being a pretty bright bulb – I’ve got a Ph.D., a thriving business, and I studied chemical dependency and conducted substance abuse interventions with addicted individuals. It took a long time for me to realize the toll my nightly glasses of white wine were taking on my life, even when they evolved into a love for bourbon cocktails. I was slowing down, gaining weight, becoming increasingly more depressed and less interested in enjoying the world around me. I’ve never wanted to stop drinking entirely – I’ll be frank about that. But as I realized the price I was paying in terms of my own satisfaction with my life, with Teresa’s help I began to examine when I drank and why, learning that much like my mother, I was medicating stress. No longer willing to ignore my dissatisfaction with my life, I focused on what Teresa calls the “pink cloud” – the elements of life that bring fulfillment. As I worked to design a richer life, I also developed an awareness of my drinking. No longer do I unconsciously settle in with my “innocent” wine at night, or conveniently find ways to meet up with friends who like to drink. Instead, I have cut back on my stressors, introduced a lot of pleasurable activities into my life and focus on my pink cloud. Do I still drink? Yes, but very consciously. And if it goes beyond social enjoyment into using it to numb stress, I focus on self-care instead of self-medication. What am I not giving myself that leads to the desire to medicate with alcohol? What do I need to do to take very good care of myself and live in my pink cloud? Not every woman who struggles with alcohol is an alcoholic. But those of us who have the courage to look at how it impacts our life will benefit greatly from Teresa’s insights and support. Life is short and we deserve to live it well.
Virginia: has watched our grandson several times when we had to go out of town on business. We came back and found our grandson very happy to have her here. We also noticed she had done a wonderful job of cleaning our home, which certainly not part of the job. So she went beyond the call of duty.
Conceive, believe, and achieve, for nothing is impossible with God! All things are possible for those who trust in Him. - Luke 1:37, Mark 9:23, 3 John:2 Our goal is to empower those individuals that are ready, and willing to make positive changes in their lives. It is our belief that God created us to have dominion over our lives. This means to be able to overcome any situation that may face us, because we have the God-given ability to do so.

With twenty years of experience, I pay a lot of attention to non-verbal as well as verbal communication. This is especially useful in relationship counseling. Non-verbal communication can show sides of ourselves which we may not be aware of but others notice. The good news is that noticing a new side to oneself can lead to welcome change. New sides to oneself can lead the way into change that comes naturally. I notice the difference between change that comes naturally and change that comes with strain. The strain usually isn't sustainable, change that fits ones nature is. I've taught conflict facilitation in Portland State University's graduate facilitation program. I've spent many years developing attitudes and skills which allow us to work through inner and outer conflict.
