designrider: Really effective therapy that not only helped us deal with particular issues but also gave us tools to use ourselves. This is not "crutch" counseling. The object here is to figure out how to live without therapy. Always relaxed and comfortable yet rigorous and perceptive. I have referred friends and family with nothing but positive outcomes. Highly recommended...A+
seasons of change: I have had a wonderful experience in my sessions. I had seen a therapist here for both marriage counseling as well as personal life changes, where I needed to find some clarity on things -- outside of the opinions of my friends and family. I find it to be a highly open and relaxed atmosphere, where a person can really explore an issue and work towards resolution. For anyone looking for an empowering experience in their treatment, I highly recommend it here.

No matter how good your counselor or life coach, it's important to understand that the real healing always occurs outside the counseling or coaching session, from greater sensitivity and, above all, your being able to listen to each other. What you get inside is greater insights, not about caring because you can already do that, but about listening, especially, especially when you disagree.
