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!
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.
My husband and I met with Wendy to strengthen our marriage and help us compromise on some polarizing issues in our marriage. My husband was VERY apprehensive towards any sort of counseling and by the end of our 2 and a half hour session (we booked a 2 hour but things were going so well, we added another half hour) we felt revived. Wendy's sessions are not focused on the problems, but focused on providing tools to help us fix our problems. Anyone who is feeling apprehensive about counseling/rehashing the past- know that Wendy's sessions are far from that. She makes a promise to her clients that her couples are always strengethed after every session and I can attest to that being the truth. I will add that communication can be tricky with Wendy because she is clearly a successful marriage coach and provides her interpersonal strengthening skills to the corporate world as well. Know that it may take an email, a text, and a follow-up text to get a response sometimes but she is worth it. My final thought on our experience so far with Wendy is the convenience of our sessions. Wendy comes to YOU which we loved. Nothing better than being in the comfort of your own home- as opposed to trying to navigate your way through traffic, park, and sit in an unfamiliar space. If you are on the fence whether marriage coaching is right for you, let me be your biggest push into taking a chance on Wendy. She will change your marriage, and your life!
I Love going to the sessions with Audrie. It feels like I’m like talking to a professional friend (easy to talk to) about my troubles and in return getting great insight and advice back. She has been wonderful!!
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 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!
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.
Wonderful counselor, extremely military friendly and understanding.
My husband and I attended marital counseling for several months. We felt the way David delivered advice and direction was great for us. He is calm and gentle as well as direct and honest. He gave many tools for us to use to strength our marriage and help us as individuals.
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!
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.
Dr. Brown is an excellent professional counselor. He shows compassion, empathy and patience. Dr. Brown provides more than counsel - he discerns where clients are going and provides options to help you get there. You leave session feeling empowered, refreshed and optimistic.
They are very honest and forthright. They do not misrepresent themselves. Excellent listeners.
I am an ordained pastor/minister of 27 years. I perform wedding ceremonies for couples. I am available for premarital counseling also.
Melissa Vance Wilson is a licensed, efficient counselor who works with a clientele of several spiritual, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Melissa believes that counseling can be an incredible journey of personal growth and self-awareness. As a counselor, she challenges her clients, while using their strengths to push them toward personal growth and identified treatment goals. The advantages of counseling are in direct relation to the time and effort that each person invests toward their own individual goals and drive toward emotional well-being.
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.
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.
