Review #34671
Written by N.I. after counseling with William Darrisaw for 3 weeks

Pastor Will as I would call him is honestly the best counselor I have ever had personally. He listens to what I have to say and makes sure to provide good biblical coping skills. He is patient and compassionate but at the same time he is not afraid to be real with you. I would honestly recommend him to anyone who is in need of some strong, sound biblical counseling.

Erwin is a very kind, God loving, people loving, patient man. He is knowledgeable about both scripture and the human mind and its complexities.

He cannot fix it for you, only God can do that, but he can and does speak through God to give you the tools for a closer relationship with the almighty, and find a sound mind and peace.

Review #34263
Written by R.O. after counseling with Dr. Latrice Love for 2 weeks

I was certainly concerned about whether getting online counseling was a good idea or not. Upon talking to Dr Love, I felt very comfortable, not judged and I felt heard. I was at a breaking point, I needed the help. I just started talking and immediately she knew what to say and do. We did a couple of questions which honestly helped me moved past the things in my head. I’m forever grateful for the time she’s given me and the progress I’ve made in the short 3 weeks that we’ve been talking. She’s a Godsend.

Dr. Blake is extremely practical & easy to talk to. He is so compassionate & I have never felt any judgement or awkwardness in talking to him. I really appreciate the reading / homework strategies that Dr. Blake utilizes. They are ongoing supportive tools to use when not in session & really adds value to sessions. Dr Blake is seasoned & mature but also very current with understanding today’s culture & issues. I appreciate his humor & the gentle yet assertive way that he can bring an issue or insight to the discussion.

Review #34222
Written by V.I. after counseling with Dr. Lori Whatley for 5 months

Your questions ask "How likely would I be to recommend Dr. Lori/Faithful Counseling" when in fact I already have recommended both to several people! It is a simple format to interact with that is extremely convenient and also a cost saver. Dr. Lori is an answer to prayer in that she listens to me in a way that puts me at ease and helps me to understand areas of my life that have, up to now, been a source of pain and anxiety. She is open and honest in a direct and caring way that is exactly what I need at this point in my life. I thank God for her!

Lakeetra is far from my first counselor. She isn’t even my first councilor on this site, but she is the first counselor to truly help me make immensely positive progress and help me find the eureka moments. Thanks to her I truly feel that I’m finally heading toward true healing and making my way to where I need to be in my life. Thank you again Lakeetra, for helping me feel like I’m going to be ok. Better- like I’m going to be who I was always meant to be.

Review #33492
Written by A.U. after counseling with Dr. Julie McCune for 4 months

Dr. McCune has been a wonderful support in this season of my life. She was thoughtful in the skills that she presented me with each week, was understanding with my emotions and each situation that I presented to her, helped me to brainstorm ways I could engage differently in situations (which made me feel like I had more control over my emotions and situations as well), and encouraged me in healthier thinking and more realistic and manageable goals. One thing I loved about my sessions with Dr. McCune was her genuine interest in me as a person, in the ministry God has placed me in, and the ways she was able to speak truth into places where I was feeling susceptible to the lies of the enemy. She prayed for me and I felt such real connection with her. Dr. Julie has been a huge blessing to me and I am so grateful for the ways she has helped me to be a healthier person, in body, mind, and spirit. I’m very grateful!
