She is helpful and I will continue to use Yasmina for couples therapy and individual therapy.
Wendy Lynne changed my perspective on everything! I was very hesitant to see a counselor at first, but my life felt stagnant and stuck, so I eventually started looking online for someone. I was very thorough in my research and very picky, as I wanted someone who I could trust and connect with. I stumbled upon Wendy's website and she seemed very personable in her videos, and I enjoyed looking through all her articles. I could definitely relate to what she had to say, plus I liked her more alternative/holistic approach. I started seeing Wendy in December of 2015 with a list of issues, the biggest ones being my relationship, career, and family. I signed up for 8 sessions and was expecting to talk a lot about my childhood, how I was raised, etc. But I soon realized that Wendy doesn't focus a lot on the past and instead focuses more on current relationships and issues, which is great because I was able to see results quickly! Plus, with my new perspective and understanding, I became less affected by my past traumas. Before Wendy, I was constantly questioning my relationship and was thinking of breaking up. But after my sessions with her, my relationship has transformed into something that I did not think was possible! It is now so easy, comfortable, and harmonious. Plus, my partner and I are getting married next month, which is a big deal for me, as I used to not believe in marriage! Wendy is very in tune with relationship dynamics and how men and women think/act differently. Learning these differences about my partner positively changed the way I interacted with them. She gave me the courage to speak up in my relationship, in a very effective and respectful way. She also gave me practical exercises, worksheets, and a personal hypnosis recording to use when problems arise. I love whipping out my pen and paper to go through her simple, but effective exercises. She has given me the knowledge and confidence to go through life knowing that there is no issue that I cannot work through! And if I cannot figure something out on my own, I can always come by for another helpful session. She is very responsive to my emails and is very accommodating with my schedule. I love how she gives me 2 hours of her undivided attention each session! We are able to cover a lot during that time, as opposed to the usual one hour sessions that other counselors offer. Discovering Wendy has been such a huge blessing, and I've recommended her to all my friends and family.
For pre-marital counseling, Heath has helped us lay a strong foundation for our relationship. She has, owing to her insightful guidance, given us tools for communications and conflict-resolution specific to the unique needs of our individual personalities and the ways in which those manifest in our relationship. Her attentiveness gave us great ease, helping us address our issues in a loving and compassionate manner. In short, she's an excellent couples' counselor and we highly recommend her.
Devin is incredibly friendly, considerate, and helpful. After trying another therapist for Marriage counseling who seemed to treat us like a business transaction we loved the care that Devin showed us. We look forward to her professional and yet incredibly welcoming approach each week. She also has been very flexible with schedule and that has meant a lot to us and our crazy schedule. Highly recommended.
I originally started going to therapy to work through some issues with my daughter. I have received wonderful parenting tips and how to deal with a rebellious teenager. I have also been able to work through some issues from my past that I didn't want to deal with but, felt like I could let it go with her. It is wonderful to know that I have someone outside of family and friends that I can talk to. I feel like a better parent and a healthier person since I have been receiving therapy from Lynn.
Spencer was a great resource for my husband and I as we went through pre-marriage counseling. He was professional, calm, asked good questions, and had a sense of humor (which can be really helpful!). He was especially good at getting my husband, who is not used to being asked to share his feelings, to feel comfortable and really benefit from the experience personally as well. Highly recommend!
My wife and I went to Larry for marriage counseling. When were in a very difficult time in our lives. We were trying to buy a home and open a business. I was finishing my college degree, working full time, and my wife was pregnant with our second child. Larry taught us how to express ourselves and communicate in a way we never thought possible. He had great insight to the real underlying issues that were the root of our problems. We can't express our gratitude enough in words. We thought we were at the point of no return in our relationship, and Larry proved otherwise. Thank you, Larry.
We are seeing Laura for marriage counseling and she is amazing! She has a great personality and has flexible appointment times which makes it really nice for us since we have trouble coming in during strict "business hours".
Tonya is the most wonderful therapist. From day to day turmoil , PTSD, encouraging in stressful situations, And so much more. I have never had such a warm, loving and compassionate therapist like tonya. I think anyone who has the need, would be hard pressed to find someone as wonderful as her. She was so easy to trust and open up with. I feel safe with her. Tonya is someone you can count on when things are confusing, when you need reassurance. She doesn't try to force you into her own agendas, nor does she pressure you into things your not ready for. Her gentle loving approach is reassuring, and works. I cannot say enough good things about her.
I went through a terrible break up several months ago and didn't know where to turn. I was devastated and didn't know how to get through the days. A friend suggested that I talk with a therapist. Having never hired a therapist in my life, I booked an appointment with Heather. I am so thankful I did. I was able to find peace in myself as well as closure and clarity in my past relationship. I am now working on myself, which is so refreshing and rewarding. I would highly recommend Heather.
Donald has an amazing gift at being a disciple. He also is a great communicator for a wedding ceremony! I have been to 5 weddings that Donald has officiated, one being my own and they are nothing short of remarkable because God is glorified, Jesus is preached and the meaning of marriage is taught. He also continues to focus on what God has done/is doing with the couple being married. He also tends to make people laugh! My wife (Megan) and I went through a very thorough pre martial discipleship program with Donald, it was very very enjoyable, fun and structured! He walked Megan and I through the reality of what marriage looks like in scripture, how we could apply to us, and also the different love languages that Megan and share. He also shared his wisdom from his own experiences. Today, 3 years later we still refer to the pre martial meetings with Donald! Looking back, It was honestly one of the most fruitful and benificial things we could have done to prepare for a Godly marriage in this life. He is an outstanding and gifted leader for God's kingdom.
Zane has been a great asset for my partner and I. Through his services, we feel better able to combat the hard issues of marriage--together. I would recommend him to anyone for relationship counseling, or premartial counseling.
This is a brief description of services Diane Spengler has given to my husband and I during marriage counseling: -couples therapy -individual therapy -family counseling -commitment to long-term growth and renewal -support and availability in times of need -follow-up concern and care I highly recommend her. She has helped our family heal through many hardships. I have recommended her to our friends also.
Holly Blue is an advocate for your healthiest functioning, bringing expertise in relationships and human behavior. When people feel stuck, I bring objectivity, skilled perspective, and knowledge of how hidden elements inter-play. These might be couples, families in conflict, or individuals looking for more security and connection in their most important relationships.
I offer both compassionate and challenging counseling for individuals and couples who are struggling with common stressors such as conflict, communication break down, depression, and anxiety. Sexual integrity issues are an of specialization that I practice, helping both partners.
As a marriage and family therapist who is licensed in the state of Washington, I provide counseling services to individuals, couples, teenagers and children. I also specialize in substance abuse and codependency issues. I have extensive experience both in California, where I have been licensed since 1993, and in Washington, where I have been living and practicing since 2002. While I have experience with clients of all ages, I currently see mainly adults and teenagers. I have recently been seeing more elderly indivuals and couples in my practice as well. I take mainly a cognitive-behavorial approach in providing my services but enlist other counseling modalities as needed. My clients appreciate that I can listen to and understand their life situations and provide them with other more useful ways of looking at their realities. Most medical insurances are accepted.
I use individual and family therapy to help children, adolescents and adults cope with the effects of trauma and transitions. Issues addressed include: * healing from abuse * divorce * school difficulties * domestic violence * behavioral problems * anxiety * depression * self-esteem * body image * support for coping with chronic illness and more I am experienced in working with clients from the LGBTQ community, as well as those in non-traditional family/relationship structures.
