Counseling & Coaching
For Love, Happiness & Success
“This has been one of the best decisions of my life. I love that my counselor has a flexible schedule and offers weekend sessions. And I absolutely love that I can speak with her in the comfort of my home. It is so much easier to be vulnerable when you feel safe. I love sharing my experience with my friends and family.“
I’ve personally seen eight therapists throughout my life and, as a couple, we’ve been to two therapists together. This was the first time I felt welcomed as a unit, as a couple.
“So Relieved! My Growing Self therapist has experience specifically in the areas we need help, and was able to quickly establish a rapport with my fiance who is uncomfortable around therapists due to negative experiences with others in the past. We are finally in the right place.”
“I got more out of the first fifteen minutes of talking with you than I have from spending two years in therapy.”
“We have tried working with other marriage counselors before but this feels way more productive. I love it that our marriage counselor gives us worksheets and homework assignments to do between our sessions.”
“When we decided to seek counseling to help our relationship, we researched several counselors–both in person and online based. We are SO grateful we found and chose a Growing Self therapist!”
“I have tried counseling for about a decade with various counselors and have never been able to connect or grow with them. [My Growing Self Coach] has connected with me genuinely and helped me grow more in two meetings then several therapists have done in a decade.”
“Before we sought help from you, I was at a point in my relationship that I had really given up on hope… you have changed our lives.”
“Had a great experience – seriously one of the best things I’ve ever done!”
“What a Difference. We have had two experiences with counselors to date, the first as a couple, the second a 1:1 for me. Both experiences were terrible, the first comically so. Conversely, [our Growing Self marriage counselor] listened, communicated clearly, was able to take what we had shared and use it as the basis to suggest an approach that seemed based on our situation rather than pre-determined, and demonstrated sensitivity and emotional intelligence.”
“I am incredibly grateful I sought her help. Her ‘coaching’ style, as opposed to traditional talk therapy, helped me immensely… our work together truly transformed my life.”
“We tell all of our friends and family about our experience with Growing Self and how much we recommend it. It really exceeded our expectations and has been a crucial part in our life.”
“It has been life changing already. I was on the fence for a long time and let myself get too far past where I should have originally seen someone. I wish I had done this sooner.”
