Suzanne was definitely one of the best counselors I've ever had. Her office had a very comfortable environment and atmosphere, and Suzanne herself was open, understanding, non-judgmental--all those things you want in a counselor.

Eric has been providing counseling for me and my husband both individually and marriage counseling He has been fantastic! I have seen many counselors in my 50 years and he is the best! He actually listens and provides wonderful feedback. Very ethical, conscientious, professional and really cares about his patients. I actually look forward to seeing him and that is a first. I can't say enough about how much he is helped us. I would recommend him to anybody seeking counseling.

We've been to two different marriage counselors because we just don't feel connected to each other anymore and we left their offices feeling worse than when we got there. All they did was lecture us and tell us what we shouldn't be doing. Wendy's approach was so different! We both felt understood by her. She didn't pick sides. My husband thought that because she was a woman she might only agree with me but that didn't happen. She was able to draw out our feelings in a way that felt very safe and without making either of us feel wrong. We cried and we laughed at ourselves. That's something we haven't done in a LONG time. She gave us a plan to feel closer to each other. She is the first person we've met with that seems to actually care about our marriage and gave us tools that we were able to use immediately. She's worth every penny we spent and we can't wait for our next appointment with her.

I'm laughing to myself seeing how Miss Audrie Henry is listed on this review page as a "Relationship Educator" (which she is), as I am truly the most relationship inept (Yes, I'm 50 years old and NEVER married). My selection of Miss Henry was prompted by my inquiry into looking for a Life Coach. As stated above, my age, and my career is what sent me on this quest to gain outside insight into what, if anything, I should do to ensure I'm on my correct path in life. Out of a list of many online advertised candidates, Miss Henry intrigued my inquiring mind. Her office is spare, yet comfortable. Quite simply, a type of meditation room for two, and this works. (There are throw pillows on the floor if you so desire). Miss Henry is personable and easy to interact with. She is questioning, but not intrusive. She gives you the opportunity to answer your own questions. Miss Henry is not overly clinical in her dealings, and does not make one feel to be a bug under a microscope. There were many people offering their licenses, and she certainly has her own titles to present, however, titles were not what I was looking for. I've worked with some people who have the alphabet at the end of their name. Certainly smart people who can pass tests, but tests of "bedside" manners they do not posses. Miss Henry has the wherewithal to be a counselor with insight. The path I am on is now more clearly visible thanks to the gentle guidance presented by Miss Audrie Henry.

I have enjoyed Marie's classes and readings for many years. She is able to tune right in and zero in on all of your concerns. She is very uplifting and enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable. I consider her to be my intuitive counselor. I always receive much needed direction and wisdom with every reading. In addition, she is always positive and reassuring with all of her insights. She is the top "go to" medium for me!

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.

Deb was amazing! It was bittersweet that our counseling came to an end. We were happy to have grown so much in such a short amount of time. The biggest trick is that you have to WANT to be better. She guides you to make your own good and healthy choices but you also have to make the effort. Thank you Deb!

David has become more than a counselor to my wife and I. He has become a friend, and a godly marital mentor. David has wisdom granted from the purest source. His prayerful, Christ centered approach has changed my view of marriage by simply guiding me toward God's original intent. His professional approach has allowed us to speak remotely with David and leave built up, and pepared to strengthen our marriage. We wish we had met him sooner. You will too.

I contacted Greg Liotta to assist my fiance and I with pre-marital counseling. I am very pleased with our experience. Mr. Liotta was receptive to answering all my questions about his process and philosophy for counseling others. He didn't mind being questioned before I even selected him as a counselor. In addition, he is clearly adept at "meeting people where they are" in their transformation. Mr. Liotta is flexible, astute and keen on getting to the heart of the matter.

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!

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.

About

When we are faced with personal conflict, it appears difficult to move on. In every relationship we negotiate our desires, but sometimes, somehow, life doesn't seem fair. I've been a therapist for 16 years. Give me a chance to help. You may not need a psychologist or psychiatrist, let's talk.

About

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.
