Mr. Gary Lacara is a SUPERSTAR!!! We highly recommend his premarital and relationship/marriage counseling expertise to every couple that's on a mission to succeed together, to truly commit to one another and work out their differences before and after getting married !!! Gary is very worldly, knowledgeable and experienced in all areas of life to truly understand and get to the bottom of our complexities as couples and human beings. He genuinely guides you, if not even relate to you and your partner on a personal level. As a tandem, after our premarital counseling, my (now) husband and I were wed by Mr. Gary Lacara in a sweet intimate ceremony in the comfort of our home, that was professionally as well as beautifully done to make us 'official' and we are very happy with the whole experience and look forward to having Mr. GARY by our side as our marriage counselor to help keep our relationship healthy and nourished and our communication clear. :) A+++++ for Mr. Gary Lacara!!!!
Doris and Ralph have been a game changer for my wife and I. I could not give them a higher recommendation than I am here and now. We have seen multiple counselors prior to them over the years and have had minimal results due to lack of genuine, heart felt, involved and action-based feedback. Doris and Ralph have met these needs and have gone above and beyond. My wife and I were borderline divorce due to past actions and current situations that seemed to be too big to conquer. Doris and Ralph have a macroscopic view anchored by a strong belief that have allowed us to see the light at the end of the tunnel and truly believe we can we can make it together while holding hands and walking side by side in the process. Doris has also involved us with local groups they interact with and has had the ability to help us us step out of our own personal chaos and give back to the community around us. Something this simple has made a huge difference. Outside of the work they do with us on a personal level, they drive and influence change in the world around them on a daily basis and the proof is in the action. Thank you so much Doris and Ralph for helping us save our marriage and being so kind and passionate towards us our children. I give the Bridge Christian Counseling Center a 5-star rating and have recommended them to all of my inner circles and hope this feedback guides anyone with similar stuggles to take the first step.
My boyfriend had been very skeptical of couples counseling but I am so happy to say his mind has changed after just one visit with Bradley. I am so excited for future visits and for the tools to make our relationship stronger.
Marriage counseling. He was awesome.
First time to a Marriage Counselor, praying it will work!
Paul is very knowledgeable and understanding. When my husband and I shared our issues, he listened with patience and could tell us the root of our problems. He was very straight to the point and his strategies worked fine for us. We are glad to have him as our marriage counselor.
Nate has taught me things no other counselor has ever taught me. I have learned invaluable skills to help me communicate effectively. Has helped me to understand why things escalate in an argument and how to keep that from happening. He is always flexible with where I need help. Very pleased with Nate's professionalism and his vast knowledge of many different ways to help in my marriage and family. I have learned so much.
My husband and I had seen other counselors in the past and had not been able to move forward. After receiving wise council from Greg, our focus has changed, we don't feel stuck. Greg simplifies issues that seem too huge to tackle. We strongly recommend Greg Wells and 240 Counseling. Our experience with Greg has taught us more about God's desire for our marriage and for us individually.
Dr. Smith has done wonders for our marriage of 22 years. My wife and I have discovered a lot about each other and our desires since meeting with her. She is very personable and really caught on to our issues quickly, which were not standard in our opinion. We didn't feel your ordinary counselor could deal with our unique situation. We got married very young, no experience outside of our marriage, but found ourselves in a poly relationship with a married couple with a very similar background. Needless to say, there were some things to work out! Dr. Smith was instrumental in recognizing, identifying and giving suggestions on how to improve our relationship. We highly recommend her if you are having marital/sexual issues. We also recommend her if you are in a same sex and/or poly relationship and are in need of suggestions...she is on top of it all!
My husband and I met Tricia in the Spring of 2009. Our marriage was at a critical crossroad and quite frankly, I did not have much hope for it to survive. Tricia was a gift from God. I give God all of the glory for the restoration of my marriage, but I am thankful beyond words that Tricia was the person He used to speak to us. I thank God for her faith in Him that carried us through when we did not have our own. She is gentle, compassionate, loving and incredibly insightful. She provided structure for us to use outside of the counseling sessions. My husband agrees that one of her greatest gifts is the ability to make you feel like she really understands you and gets what is going on. She is able share hard things and truths that must be spoken in a way that makes you feel deeply loved. She is an incredible listener and is always spot-on with her evaluation and subsequent advice. My husband and I still pop in to see Tricia now and then when we need a 'tune-up". Tricia is professional and highly personable. I recommend her every time the opportunity presents!
I initially hired Annette for marriage counseling and when that didn't work out I stayed on for individual work. I am very happy that I did.
Jeana is truly an amazing therapist. She's so insiteful and has wonderful advise. My husband and I have been going together to work on the marriage and I go individually. It's really helped me and my husband see a different side of things from some else's perspective. I love A Safe Place To Heal because I'm finally healing in ways I never could have imagined.
We have been seeing Alicia for over 6 years. She saved our marriage. We check in from to time when we hit bumps in the road. But she's also given us the tools to work through things on our own. What is remarkable about Alicia is she's managed to get both of us to see each other's side and has never made either of us feel like she was favoring one of us over the other. My husband has even suggested we go see her and to me that shows just how amazing she is. We have both seen her on own and she's helped us work through our individual issues. Your search stops here, Alicia is the person you need to see.
I'm delighted to recommend Kris White and Creative Counseling. Kris was my therapist for a period of about three years when I was struggling with family and marital issues. I found Kris to be a warm, patient, insightful, caring and highly skilled counselor. Kris created a safe atmosphere in our sessions that was structured, comfortably paced and professional in every way, while conveying to me that he was deeply invested in me and in my progress. I'm grateful for the guidance, insights and "safe harbor" he provided for me during a tumultuous season in my life -- and I recommend him to others with the utmost faith and confidence.
He was very professional, makes you feel comfortable, open, easy going. We definitely recommend him if you want to get married.
TSmith counseling is a place that I highly recommend. I had the normal inhibitions about counseling and it took a few visits for me to open up but I have to admit, this counselor has changed my entire view of counseling as a whole and she has given me great feedback on how to make better life choices and rectify my life situations (marriage, work, family, friends, etc..)
I thought it would take months of my husband and I explaining everything we had done to derail our marriage, before Todd could even start to get a clear picture of us. Instead Todd saw some of our core issues immediately and that allowed us to start working on some things right away. I was very happy about that because I'd heard from others that they had been visiting their counselor for months and were only scratching the surface. I feel Todd was very intuitive with my husband and I. In my case there were also a lot of shameful things that I was reluctant to discuss and when I felt comfortable enough to bring them up Todd never judged me or made me feel uncomfortable. For the few visits I've had, I find that I already have trust in both him and this process. To me, that statement alone is worth all 5 stars.
I've known Penny as a colleague for 18 years and she is the epitome of professionalism combined with warmth, caring and expert guidance. Penny instantly makes every person she comes in contact with feel at ease and as if she's known them for years. I've seen her patients interact with her and it's clear that she has a gift that defies words. God has blessed her with a helping mind and heart that will change your life for the better. The real testimonial is seeing how clients track her down years later when they have a crisis they need help with; they don't reach out to someone new, they reach out to someone they trust. Penny is the counselor other counselors would go see in their time of need. Simply put, she's the best there is.

There are three major differences between my approach of marriage counseling and many other qualified professionals. First of all, I am bilingual and bicultural, it allows me to understand a wider range of people and couples who do not consider themselves "the conventional couple". On the other hand, before I meet with the couples, they are requested to first take a 30-minute online questionnaire individually. Many couples found it tremendously helpful to learn about their strengths and growth areas during counseling. It also reduces the chances of misunderstandings of the counselor or making inaccurate assumptions about the marriage. Last but not least, I am theologically and psychologically trained while handling marital difficulties (e.g. conflict resolution, forgiveness and reconciliation, sexual intimacy, etc.) For more information about my biography or credentials, please visit www.KarisWong.com.
