Michael was very friendly and gave excellent marital advice to my wife and I. The exercises he had us perform really helped us with our communication barriers and how to resolve conflict before it escalates. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for an experienced, Christian counselor who can help build a stronger and lasting marriage.

My then fiance' and I had hit a rough patch a little over a year ago and decided to take some time apart. My fiance' and I both knew that we loved each other very much, but for some reason it just wasn't working anymore. So we separated. And when I say separated I mean really separated, I left the west coast and returned to the midwest to be with my family. While home, I was having lunch with a friend (who I hadn't seen in years) and while we were catching up on all things life, she referred me to Rev. Rayfield Yarbrough, as she spoke highly of how he had been working with her and her then bf (they are engaged now!!) helping them to better understand one another and prepare them for engagement and ultimately marriage. I was open to talking to Rev. Yarbrough at the time, but wasn't quit sure how it would work with him being in Baltimore, me being in the midwest, and my fiance being on the west coast. But I (and my fiance were willing to give it a chance) we both agreed that we would neither restore or completely sever our relationship until we gave counseling a full faith effort. A few days after receiving the recommendation for Ray (he's a friend now) I emailed him to introduce myself and my fiance, give him an introduction to our issues and to ask if he could schedule some time. Instead of Ray emailing me back, he called me right away, and scheduled time to talk with us for the following weekend--this is the first testament of the excellent service we received. I flew back to be with my fiance a few days later and we had our first meeting with Ray via skype. Now, counseling via skype may seem like it would be too impersonal to be effective, but surprisingly it was very comfortable. For months my fiance and I met with Ray every few weeks via skpe. During our sessions, Ray prayed with and for us, taught us the importance of learning to speak the other's love languages, and coached us on how to best deal with some of our big issues that were impacting the way we shared love with one another. What we both liked about Ray is that he was fair. He never showed any bias towards either one of us; when we would have disagreements, he would always tell both of us how we were wrong and what each of us could have done differently to alleviate the tension. Additionally, he was very honest about whether or not we were ready for marriage. At one point early in our time with him, he told us to completely stop talking about marriage because while we were doing all the work necessary, we just weren't ready. Later in our time with him, he told us, "all of the issues you all are having can be alleviated through marriage." These two occurrences attest two things about Ray's ministry. First, he isn't just pushing marriage because two people are together. He only encourages and support marriages that he thinks are aligned with God's will. Secondly, this shows that over time, the progress we made with Ray was real. We went from him telling us to stop even thinking about marriage, to encouraging us to go ahead and get married because we had reached a point of true readiness. My fiance and I worked with Ray for over a year and he truly helped prepare us for marriage. We finally met Ray in person a couple of weeks ago when he flew to to California to marry us. When we met him, we all greeted with a hug, as it was just like we were seeing an old friend. Throughout our entire wedding weekend Ray was such an amazing help--going above and beyond to make sure our wedding day went smoothly. Long story short, Ray was an ultimate blessing to us. My then fiance and I were on our way to separation, but we had faith in God and saw Ray as a spiritual gift and now we can both say that our love is sweeter than it has ever been. With the help of Ray, we went from two people who were engaged and separated to now husband and wife who are inseparable. Ray's ability to support two individuals forging a union with God is truly a ministry. Ray will always be someone who we will reach out to as a support of our marriage. Not only was he our premarital counselor and wedding officiant but he is now our friend. Our marriage is our testimony. Both my husband and I have referred others to Ray. We truly believe in his work and his ministry.

After going thru a rough patch in my marriage then losing my job of 11 years, Omega helped me get back to me! She helped me realize that those problems and situations were temporary road blocks I was ultimately responsible for where my life would go. I have recommended Omega to a few people I know because I believe in her. Her words of encouragement and advice were always genuine. She became more than a counselor, she became a friend. She prayed for me and with me and for her I am grateful! We all need a little help sometimes, and I highly recommend Omega as that someone who can help!

Heidi was a huge help to me, as a coach and counselor. She truly listened to what was going on with me. She made sure she understood what was going on, and then helped me find the way by offering suggestions, research, and several options. I always felt I was understood. She also was very positive, and encouraged me by letting me know that I CAN do it. With her encouragement and guidance I was able to make changes that made my overall health better.

Caitlin has been a mentor and guiding force for me over the past 10 years. She has spent countless hours listening and sharing her wisdom with me. Despite her very busy schedule, Caitlin has always made herself available to help when needed. Somehow, no matter what else she has going on in her day, when we are speaking I feel like I am her sole focus and priority. Caitlin is a very genuine, very caring person, and has a tremendous amount to offer her clients.

Verified review

I've worked with Mark several times over the course of the past two years, on both personal and professional issues. He's helped me immensely. He seems to be able to see things that I don't, maybe because I'm too close to the problems, maybe because he understands things about people that I don't. I don't know. What I do know is that if it weren't for his help, I'd likely still be stuck in some bad places. I've worked with a number of counselors and coaches in my life and Mark's the best.

I am an experienced Marriage and Family Therapist. Recently I attended a one day training conducted by Keith Miller. The training was excellent. Keith is clearly one of the most experienced, knowledgeable and effective marriage counselors not just in this area but in the country. His book "Love Under Repair" is a must read for any couple looking for help in improving their relationship. As a prominent trainer for other professional marriage counselors, his knowledge and expertise coupled with his caring and compassionate attitude ensure that any therapist attending his training will benefit greatly from the knowledge and techniques that he shares. Keith's passion for sharing his expertise benefits not only his own clients but the clients of the many counselors he trains. He is truly excellent.

I went out seeking a marriage counselor to help repair my marriage and found Dorina. It was important to me to find someone who could empathize with my situation as well as coach me through some of the more challenging aspects. Dorina offered the first appointment free so I could get a feel for her coaching style which was very helpful in making my decision. We hit it off right away and she has been very helpful in my progress. She offers reasonable rates, packages and payment plans. She's awesome, would recommend her to anyone who is seeking help for one on one or for couples.

About

As a master level Reiki practitioner, intuitive counselor and life coach, Janell specializes in spiritually based therapy, treating women's issues, depression, anxiety, marriage and relationship issues, stress management and assisting with goal-setting, manifestation and life planning. I combine cognitive behavioral therapy(CBT), mindfulness, emotion-focused therapy (EFT) and strength-based treatment modalities and energy work to formulate an innovative, eclectic and holistic therapy approach that is unique to my practice. I believe firmly in the practice of holistic and organic treatment, and I work to address all aspects of the client addressing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs while simultaneously seeking to motivate clients toward healing and restoration by affirming their positive characteristics. My brand of therapy creates a place of acceptance for where the client is and promotes a sense of hope and excitement for where the client will go as they progress. I find that teaching clients to incorporate both the physical and metaphysical into their healing process while encouraging them to examine not only the areas of their lives that are causing them turmoil but also those areas that bring them joy is paramount to their healing. My goal is to teach clients to work through their past issues and make intentional effort to attract and manifest what they desire in life through the power of their thinking and actions. Clients immediately begin learning how spiritual law works and how to adopt and implement new habits while concurrently unlearning those beliefs and behaviors that are detrimental to their ultimate success. I have helped clients overcome addictions, infertility, depression, obesity, trauma, financial turmoil and more! All things are absolutely possible for all! With the right thoughts and tools, you too can realize your dreams!
