Mike is a great counselor, unfortunately it was too much of a commute for us but I would strongly recommend him for couples counseling.
Paisley is a warm and compassionate person, and a skilled counselor for couples/families and individuals alike. Her Emotion-Focused Therapy background really helps couples understand each other's feelings.
Scott is pragmatic, supportive, empathic and knowledgeable about the numerous issues we've brought to him. He draws from a multitude of paradigms to offer his best assessment and understanding of what he is observing and hearing. He has also helped us to come up with simple, practical and doable self-interventions to "try at home." Whether you are seeking a deep dive or tune-up, I would definitely recommend Scott for couples counseling.
We loved our premarital counseling session with Jessi. She was a great resource for us as we prepared to enter married life!
I have been a colleague of Stuart's for over 3 years. As a counselor and a person, he is kind, insightful, and practices with the highest level of professionalism and ethics. I do not hesitate to refer clients to him.
Many things have changed during my time spent working with Dana. The biggest being greater self love and acceptance. I always thought I had a fair amount of self respect, but when working with Dana I was really able to see all the negative/limiting beliefs I kept placing on myself. Dana's approach has been much different then when I've worked with counselors in the past. She asked me what was and wasn't effective in past counseling sessions. This allowed me to feel comfortable in expressing my needs. I was hoping to work with someone who was engaging, and gave honest feedback during our talks. Dana did just that, and it made SUCH a difference in our time together. She's mastered how to be both personable and professional with her clients. After a few months of working with Dana, I started to experience some major shifts. Subconsciously I think I walked in her doors just hoping for a slim body and a less chaotic life. But after a few months of sessions with her I got something even better: self love and acceptance. She helped me listen to my inner needs that have been screaming to get my attention for a while now and helped me to process them. Instead of simply losing weight, I learned how to honor and listen to my needs.. And it's been wonderful. I can't recommend Dana enough.
I offer the highest rating for Didi, because she is amazing. I set out searching for a counselor and I found inspiration. Didi's drive and passion is contagious and I find it impossible to not want to be successful at whatever challenges I need to face. Her ability to see exactly what I don't want to talk about is irritating, but is exactly what I need to reach and change the most stubborn parts of my brain. That being said, her approach to sensitive topics is graceful and I feel at ease talking with her. I am so thankful that I got connected with Didi.
We found Kate while my wife and I were looking for a marriage counselor. We were a little skeptical at first since we could not find many reviews for her. We took a chance and decided to get in contact with her and we were extremely happy with the results. We felt comfortable with her from the moment we sat down at our first session. She has been doing this for many years and it shows in her professionalism. She does not take sides and helps us to communicate open with one another so we can see each other’s views and concerns that arise between us, making it easier to calmly discuss and resolve conflicts. If you are curious about marriage counseling I would strongly recommend Kate.
Jay is an amazing pastor and speaker. We are so thankful to have had him marry us and do our premarital counseling. He is easy to talk with, a great listener and really provided some beneficial information during our premarital meetings. Jay was perfect at our ceremony, really respecting our wishes and made it personal to us. We feel truly blessed that he was able to play such an important role in our wedding!
Aaron has a warm, collaborative and disarming presence. He is able to truly understand and empathize with his clients so that they can work on their issues with his kind and compassionate presence. I have worked along side Arron as his co-counselor with couples and in the capacity of co-facilitating Compassionate Communication groups. I highly recommend him as askilled therapist to anyone looking to improve their lives.
I started seeing David at a time in my life where I was feeling exhaustingly overwhelmed. Although I was hesitant to share my story, I was met with a relaxing, non-judgmental and accepting energy. David not only provided me with knowledge and tools to use to navigate through life, but he also provided a safe space and an altruistic counselor/client relationship. I feel heard, respected and comfortable and much more confident in my ability to provide myself with a great quality of life.
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!
I have spoken with a number of different counselors and therapists over the years and have struggled to find someone I connect with. From the very beginning, Sarah helped me outline my mental health goals so that we were working toward the same thing. She even took the time to research the semi-obscure religion in which I was raised so she could understand my upbringing and give me advice based on my values and not hers. She made custom meditation recordings and breathing exercises for me. She worked with me on payment options. When I moved away she accomodated me with phone sessions which are just as good if not better because I can say things which I would be embarrased to in person. She has had a profound impact on my life and holds a special place in my heart. I would, and do, highly recommend her to my friends.
Tracy is an amazingly warm and understanding counselor. She has helped me find great insight into my relationships with my husband and other people I care about, all with a very non-judgmental and kind spirit. She has helped me through one of the most difficult and darkest periods of my life, with patience and kindness. When I see her I feel like I have the space to just be myself and tell her what is on my mind. She is wise yet humble, and I would recommend her to anyone trying to understand their relationships better, or wanting to find more happiness and fulfillment from their relationships and life in general.
Mariah knows me more than most people and I trust her judgement implicitly. She's the best and most informative counselor I've ever employed. She has an instinctive touch and offers tangible solutions to problems.
Working with my counselor Jeannie has helped me with the challenging situations in my life regarding relationships and specific guidance that I truly needed. She is a true professional. The advice and processes rendered have been outstanding and validating, and I would recommend her services to everyone who needs sound professional effective relationship, family, child, and adolescent counseling and guidance. I was so impressed with her courtesy, thoughtfulness, understanding, and useful ideas and methods. She goes above and beyond. I continue use her services. She is definitely the best counseling I have ever had.
I have used Dr. Lucero for counseling for myself and my family for over 15 years. She is a wonderful counselor with keen insight and can address the needs of diverse individuals. I highly trust her for ethical, professional, and competent counseling. I highly recommend her and I am convinced that my family and myself have gained from her valuable professional guidance and as a result have an improved quality of life.

I work in areas of personal growth, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addictions, grief and more.

If it's not working, try a different approach. As a licensed professional counselor, I see individuals, couples and families to help improve communication and relationships and actively resolve troublesome issues. I like to guide people to think "out of the box" and to try different strategies to lessen stress and experience a more enjoyable life.
