  • Ivan has been fantastic- great insights into my issues and suggestions for actionable improvements every session. Great listener and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend. - Review on Jan 03, 2023
  • Ivan has literally been hands down the best counselor I have ever had in my life. For more than a year he has helped me make so many significant changes in my life that I did not think were even possible. He helped me to explore many different challenges in my life that were so hard for me to look at. With his help I was able to find new ways to deal with the challenges, not get stuck and continue to find growth and healing. When I first signed up for therapy I was beyond anxious and at times struggled with being open even when I really wanted to be open. Ivan was so patient with me during these times. Ivan has an amazing personality that just really makes the counseling experience so much smoother. Ivan helped me believe in myself when all I could see was fear in my face. He helped me knock the walls of fear down and push through and start looking at where my life is and what my life could become. So many times, we all ask ourselves what if this…? or what if that...? or what if I never…? I learned that all of these for me were rooted in fear. Once I started to learn and understand more about this fear, Ivan continued to help me walk through building up my confidence and what that looks like for me. As time continued to go on, I learned so many new ways to think about myself in positive ways that helped me work on changing different actions I would take. I learned that fear/anxiety did not have to control my life anymore and that I can still go after the things that I want. Ivan really helped me with so many different issues from work, relationships and just being there when I was having so much chaos going on in my life. Honestly without Ivan’s assistance there is no doubt in my mind that I would have been able to make such huge strides on my own. My friends and family have noticed a difference in me when it comes to my attitude and they are just so surprised because according to them I am not the same person that they once knew and I am the 2.0 upgraded, better version of myself. I totally wish Ivan was licensed in every state. Do yourself a favor and sign up for sessions with him, it will not only change your life, but individuals that are around you will be changed as well. - Review on Sep 30, 2022

  • Mironda is great. I expressed what I was feeling and she was able to go right to they why at the core of it. During the first session alone, several points were discovered that were leading to what I'm struggling with, which is more than any other therapist I've had has done.
