You won’t find our reviews on Google…

Or Facebook, or Yelp, or Thumbtack. Why not? Because everything that happens in marriage counseling, therapy, and life coaching is confidential, and an extremely private experience for most people. I’m sure you can understand that publicly reviewing a marriage counselor or therapist is not the same as Yelping a restaurant or giving your dog-walker five stars on Thumbtack. We help our clients with the intensely personal stuff that they’re never going to share on social media.

At the same time, finding the right counselor or coach can make all the difference between success or failure in your personal growth work. I believe it is important for people thinking about counseling or coaching to do research and educate themselves about the people they are entrusting their lives to. While education, qualifications, experience and approach are all important, learning about the experiences others have had is a vital part of the selection process.

So on this page you’ll find a sample of reviews and testimonials from our former clients, but offered in a respectful format that protects both their confidentiality and anonymity. — LMB

What Growing Self Clients Have to Say

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.

Couples Counseling Client

Brenda was so helpful and knowledgeable, I looked forward to my time each week. She gave me info to work on before the next meeting and I felt it was really giving me a better outlook. I really liked being able to do it from home on video calls, that helped me a lot.

Former Client

“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.”

– Former Client

“My coach  was amazing, excellent ability to be both compassionate for the experiences that one has gone through, but be firm in moving forward toward healing. Great experience.”

– Former Client

I have loved working with Brenda. I enjoy our sessions very much. My life has changed in so many amazing ways since we started working together. I can’t imagine where I would be if I hadn’t reached out for the help I needed.

Former Client

“My therapist is very professional and insightful. She held me accountable and taught me numerous strategies for coping with stress/anxiety. I eventually tapered my sessions off and have suspended therapy, and she helped me feel prepared for that. She is great at reality testing. The sessions were always productive.”

– Former Client

I have loved that I get to meet with Brenda via Skype. With her help I have learned so much about myself. I feel like I’ve had the opportunities to see my issues in a different light, which has allowed me to move from my place of feeling “stuck” into a place of action. There is still work to be done. Success is a moving target, but instead of feeling hopeless and overwhelmed, I feel confident that I will ultimately get to where I want to be.

Former Client

Brenda has truly been a joy to work with. I can’t thank her enough for all of the ways she’s helped me change my life.

Former Client

“My therapist has always made me feel better after speaking with her. She knows my limits and when to push them. I can not thank her enough for what she has done for me.”

– Former Client

“[My coach] was a guide to help me see the patterns that had led me to a very unhappy place. I’m glad she didn’t tell me what to do, but to see what I’ve wanted deep down. I’ve altered career paths, and I’m much happier now.”

– Former Client

Kathleen was a joy to work with. I really enjoy her willingness to explain things and help me think of things in another way.

Former Client

“I love referring clients to Growing Self. I tell others that Growing Self is an experienced and knowledgable team of therapists with a philosophy of meeting people where they are in their journey, helping them to determine where they want to go and addressing the challenges that are holding them back. I tell people that you will feel clarity in the first session and you will have a plan to work on getting what you want/need for yourself.”

– Former Client

I have recommended several friends to my coach, as it’s really very affordable with Growing Self, and really helps shape your goals in life.

Former Client

I tell others “I love my therapist.” or “I have a great therapist.”.”

– Former Client

“Had a great experience – seriously one of the best things I’ve ever done!”

– Former Client

“My therapist is excellent. She saved my marriage, helped us with coping skills/conflict resolution, made wonderful recommendations to “homework” and really understood us. She is intuitive, smart, reads us very well, and pushed us just far enough without causing meltdowns or shutdowns. I can’t say enough good about her. I trust her professional judgments and methods completely.”

– Former Client

“My therapist was a guide to help me see the patterns that had led me to a very unhappy place. I’m glad she didn’t tell me what to do, but to see what I’ve wanted deep down. I’ve altered career paths, and I’m much happier now.”

– Former Client

“I tell others all the time how much Growing Self helped me to work through a divorce and move on with my life. I feel that I couldn’t have done it without you guys!”

– Former Client

From the moment I met Stephanie I knew I was in good hands and we would be able to work together. She is down to earth, easy to talk to, honest, and extremely knowledgeable. She has been one of the biggest blessings in my life in terms of helping me find peace during a tough personal year for me. I have progressed so much…

Former Client

“I loved and appreciated the fact that you offer help via video chat, it was exactly what I was looking for and needed.”

– Former Client

“A very positive experience of growth, in a totally non judgmental environment.”

– Former Client

Stephanie has been a great asset to our marriage. In the few short months that my husband and I have been seeing her we have grown so much in our marriage. We feel so connected to each other and have the tools to get through conflict. We continue to meet with Stephanie because we are exploring deeper issues and she brings such warm perspective to our relationship.

Happy Couple

“Sorting out heavy feelings and emotions is hard work. My therapist helped me to sort out how I was feeling and provided encouragement that I did not have to work through all of the “piles” at the same time or in a hurry. I also appreciated that she provided a safe and calm space to do my emotional work without feeling judged. Dr. Bobby led the session so that there was time to talk about the thoughts and feelings, work through them with an exercise and wrap all of the “piles” back up in a neat little package so that I could continue to function in my everyday life. It was encouraging to feel the progression of disfunction to function to happiness to thriving!”

– Former Client

Being a newly engaged couple we wanted to find somewhere progressive for pre-marital counseling. We went into it with the intention that it’d be fun to do together and maybe we could learn something. Going into it we had a solid relationship and nothing “bad” or “negative” to work on. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we learned about ourselves and each other through our sessions. Not only did it exceed our expectations but it was life changing. We constantly brag to our friends about how we went to pre-marital counseling and it was the best experience!

Former Client

Dr. Bobby is a wonderful, brilliant person. She was instrumental in coaching me with my challenges over several months. She is professional, caring and knowledgeable and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Former Client

My coach was a terrific mentor and aided in the pursuit of answering questions I had on a consistent basis. She was extremely helpful when I knew where I needed to go but didn’t know how to get there, as we were able to create a road map together and create goals and thresholds to abide by in the pursuit of that accomplishment.
