This is what our clients say about us
I was going out with girlfriends, partying and escaping. I was ready to end our marriage I was so unhappy. My husband was going to move out and I was even calling apartment complexes to help him find a place to live. My husband called Risa for couples counseling, and as he says, he just felt that she was the one who could help us. We’ve worked with Risa for 13 sessions now and if we hadn’t gone to counseling with her, we’d be living separate lives. I don’t think about divorce anymore. I’m wearing my wedding ring again, too! I’m so glad my husband didn’t give up on us and that we have worked with Risa.— D.W.
An e-mail from a former client: “A girlfriend asked for your contact information and I gave it to her and told her that you basically saved my marriage. You helped my husband and I get to the point where we realized that we either need to stop talking about our marriage and actually fix it, or end things. We hit rock bottom at one point, but somehow we pulled each other out of the weeds. Slowly, we started liking one another again, and fell back in love. We ended up moving to a wonderful new house and recently had a baby and he is the love of our lives. So, I guess this is an overdue thank you. You are an incredible therapist, and I will never forget the snowy afternoon that I called and you asked if I just wanted to talk for five minutes. I can’t express how much that meant.— S.S.
My husband and I went to couples therapy because I was very frustrated with my husband. I was annoyed with everything he did and was questioning why we were still together. I had married him because he was really nice, easygoing and stable, which was what I needed at the time. But, as I got older, I thought I really didn’t need that anymore. There was no passion between us and we had sex less than 10 times a year. I was basically ready to get a divorce.
My biggest fear of seeking help was that it might confirm how hopeless I felt and that I’d determine for sure I should leave my marriage. I knew a divorce would be devastating to my family and I really didn’t want to put anyone through that. I wanted help, but I also didn’t want to settle for a marriage that was unsatisfying to me.
After 10 sessions with Risa, I no longer felt as frustrated. I came to appreciate who my husband is and how he is different from me. We learned to respect one another’s ideas and opinions and I was reminded of all the positive reasons I married him. I no longer think about divorce and am much happier overall. And our sex life improved dramatically! Therapy with Risa really helped save my marriage.— S.M.
I consider myself a private person who usually wouldn’t talk about my problems with a third party. For quite some time, my wife and I were struggling with our relationship. She kept saying she wasn’t satisfied and that something was missing for her. So, we decided to seek help through counseling with Risa.
I was made to feel comfortable right from the start which made it much easier for a guy like me to talk about our problems. Therapy opened our lines of communication and we no longer got overly emotional when we talked about difficult subjects. We learned to manage our time better and now have more time to take care of our relationship.— K.B.
