Doing Premarital counseling with Suzanne was the GREATEST choice we made regarding our marriage/wedding planning. We learned so much from her...we appreciated her guidance and instantly fell in love with how Real her sessions were. I mean, marriage isn't sunny skies and red roses all the time and we had deep discussions about what marriage was all about. We talked about so many topics I had not considered; I learned a lot about myself AND my girlfriend, who is now my wife. Speaking with Suzanne gave me such confidence about my future marriage and about myself as a husband, I owe her more than I can repay. We both enjoyed her so much, we decided to see her every 6 months or so to check in and continue working on keeping "us" fresh and focused. You have to meet her!
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
Stephanie is not only a skilled therapist who consistently utilizes evidence-based practices in her work with clients, but she also brings a wealth of wisdom which when combined with her clinical skills make for an excellent therapist. It is one thing to find a proficient therapist and quite another to work with one who also embodies the life-experiences, clarity and wisdom that Stephanie embodies. I initially met Stephanie when she was a clinician, trainer, and consultant in Washington State at an agency where we were both employed. Since we have both relocated to Austin, TX, we have worked together closely on shared cases, and I definitely value her insights. I highly recommend her as a clinician."

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.
