My wife and I did our premarital counseling with Suzanne and LOVED IT!! We were very happy with the comfort level we felt with her, the openness of the sessions, the guidance she provided, and the overall closeness we felt every single time we left her office. I will recommend to anyone who will listen to try a few sessions with Suzanne. Her hours are very flexible as well. We both work full time so we had several evening and weekend meetings. Cannot thank Suzanne enough for where we are starting out heading into our marriage!
Kathryn is a really excellent therapist! We went through her pre-marital counseling program, and she did a great job of making us talk about difficult areas of our relationship. The program she uses is excellent, but we really appreciated her feedback, guided conversation and flexible schedule. Also her dog is super cute. ;)
I definitely 'felt stuck' in life and was renewing my New Year's resolutions almost daily without accomplishing much. I knew I needed a coach more than a counselor. David is giving me purpose to act and provides me with a level of accountability which was lacking before. Being in my late forties, my coach has given me back my optimism to live life to its fullest in my own way without fear of being judged...a life without fear actually. David is getting me unstuck from my past which is tremendously liberating! I highly recommend Third Force Life Coaching.
Paul Iarussi is exceptionally professional, knowledgable, and sensitive with the subject matter. When working with Paul there is not any blame or shame. The goal is to discover one's own needs, the partner's needs, how to meet these needs, and how to communicate more effectively. I am grateful for the support we have received and skills we have learned with Paul's guidance. I highly recommend Relational Counseling Services to anyone and everyone. We all need help with relationships and communications at time, and that should be embraced and not embarrassing. My husband and I feel empowered and stronger together with Paul's support.
I came in for couples counseling with my wife, which is a tough thing to start. This was our first time seeing a counselor, and Melody was really welcoming and helped us feel a little more relaxed. We were pretty nervous, but Melody was so great in helping us get started talking. She is an amazing listener and is very patient. Her questions really made me think and helped put things in a different perspective. She made difficult topics a lot more manageable. Highly recommended!
Warm, open, compassionate counseling. Overwhelmingly positive experience. I have recommended Dean to multiple friends (both for couples counseling and grief counseling). Dean does an incredible job of listening and gently guiding toward solution. When he suggests something that may not "fit," he is happy to hear that, and we explore other options. Dean helped me through grief over my father's death, then later, with couples counseling for me and my wife. I cannot recommend Dean highly enough.
The Watsons were the ideal marriage counselors for us, and the counseling we received went beyond our expectations. Not only are they compassionate listeners and full of wisdom, they also model in their own relationship the love, sacrifice, and spiritual devotion that they encourage couples to cultivate. Their approach focuses on identifying needs and tendencies in each person, and helping the couple better respond to them. They helped give us a language to communicate where we were both satisfying and missing those desires while always keeping love and respect at the forefront of our communication. The Christian framework they work within provides a rich reservoir of caring and forgiveness which was also blended with the best insights from modern psychology; a mix that is hard to beat. We continue to benefit from the Watson’s counseling in our everyday life, which is a testament to their influence and sincere warmth. (C&S)
Kristal is an excellent Therapist. She is understanding and insightful. She did a great job in helping my wife and I in premarital counseling and helping me personally with the loss of my mother.
I feel that Ms. Martel is an excellent counselor. She was very patient with my teenager who had a big issue with trust. My daughter soon felt very safe with her. Ms. Martel is very experienced with many of the issues that young people are faced with now. In addition, she gave my daughter strategies in dealing with a chronic illness. I would highly recommend Ms. Martel to anyone looking for a counselor.
Pastor Becker is a great Pastor to work with for your wedding. He is flexible caring and accomodating to your needs for the big day. I definitely recommend him for your Christian wedding ceremony. From premarital counseling to the ceremony to couples counseling he is a great choice. He is an excellent Pastor for your wedding journey
We brought my young son to Doc for life coaching/counseling. He has severe depression. She has been a miracle worker in his life and he has made so much of an improvement. We see it everyday. Through it all we also have done marriage counseling with her. My husband and I were ready to get a divorce. We have been working with Doc on our marriage and have decided to stay married. They do not do insurance but she is worth every penny and a bargain at that. If she can get you in, I would jump at the opportunity to work with her. Not at all what I expected her to be. I have had several counselors through the years and always left the office feeling worse. She helps you face the issues but we have spent so much more time learning and laughing. She helps us all in my family keep life in perspective. Thanks Doc!
This was way beyond what I had hoped and wished for! Kelly was so tuned in to me. She helped connect the dots that I have struggled to connect. She presented reasons and ideas I had never imagined as as to how I landed where I did and why I made certain choices I made. She gave me tools to pave a better path for myself and the confidence I so badly needed to trust that I can and will get there. Kelly is a radiant beacon of light and a magical counselor. I have been seeing her weekly and growing in leaps and bounds in my life.
Paige is a wonderful counselor who helped me discover and reveal things about myself, at my own pace, as I was ready. She helped me figure out how to cope with everyday things that I was struggling with. I would definitely recommend everyone finding a therapist like her!
Sydney is a wonderful counselor, with a friendly, welcoming style. She has a wide range of experience, helping people struggling with temporary life changes to managing chronic mental illness. She cares deeply about her clients' well-being. Highly recommended.
I offer a healing place for everyone. I am a licensed professional counselor who specializes in working with children and families. I am also certified to provide clinical supervision for LPC interns. I have over 20 years of experience working with children with special needs and offer parenting classes, as well as in-home parent coaching services. I utilize play therapy and the creative arts in my work with children, and I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy primarily in my work with teenagers and adults. Issues that I work mostly with include grief and loss, depression, anxiety, life transition issues, addictive issues, communication challenges, behavior disorders in children, and ADHD issues in children and adults. I believe everyone has the capacity for greatness, that life is often difficult and we can get distracted from our true path, and that given time and support, we can get back on track and realize our full potential and dreams.
I am a licensed professional counselor with over ten years of experience in working with individuals, especially women, families and groups. Some of the issues I commonly address include anxiety, depression, family-of-origin issues, stress-related illnesses, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, life transitions, and self-awareness and self-concept issues. I have experienced working in schools as well as with families and teens in residential treatment facilities. Some of the issues in which I have experienced were domestic-violence issues, alcohol and drug addiction, parenting, and blended families and divorce issues. I believe that healthy individuals and families seek counseling to remain healthy and to increase their overall satisfaction and contentment in their life. When people have the basics covered, then only do they really have the freedom to move higher on that hierarchy of needs to work on bettering relationships, self-awareness, self-confidence, and self-actualization. When you are ready to begin your own journey, I can help you find your path.
Why did I marry him or her? Is it always going to be this hard? Did I make a mistake? No, you probably did not! Men and women communicate in 2 different languages. If you learn what each other needs, believe me, life gets way easier once you know the secrets! Let me help. My husband of 11 years and I wrote a book called "The Marriage Manual" with 2 sections for him and her. Everything you need to know about making a marriage healthy is right inside. If you need additional counseling, I'm also available. We became "best sellers" on Amazon in February, and people seem to love the short and "straight to the point" way it is written.

I work with young adults, adolescents, and children to help them overcome issues they may be having in their lives. My counseling style is nonjudgmental, caring, empathetic, genuine and accepting. Parenting skills are also incorporated in my practice should there be a need. Many of the issues I work with are depression, bipolar, eating disorder, self harm, substance abuse, relationship conflict, grief and loss, and behavior modification. My practice is based on a positive and strength building theory. Self-esteem building and changing negative thoughts to positive are two of the things I work on with clients. My clients enjoy meeting with me, and we work together to help them reach goals.
