All inquiries and sessions are strictly confidential

This page contains reviews and testimonials from our clients after working on their relationship with a CCA counselor.

Due to the confidential nature of our services, our clients are not likely to post testimonials on popular websites (such as Google plus and Yelp) that gather email based customer comments about services. We respect the privacy of all our clients.

How are the testimonials collected?

  1. Our clients send unsolicited emails, cards or letters to our therapists
  2. We receive face-to-face verbal feedback during a session, or after the counseling process is finished 
  3. We collect answers to an anonymous satisfaction questionnaire every year.

What our clients are saying

"We did a lot of research looking for a practice that specializes in couples work only. It gave us comfort to know we were in the hands of a specialist. And we were glad we did."

"We are very glad we had your guidance. We are doing very well. We have come a long way since we first went to see [our therapist]. We wanted to drop you a line to say: Thanks!"

"Our counselor is a dedicated professional, carefully preparing for each client meeting. She is highly intelligent, is an excellent listener and picks up on non verbal cues. She skillfully guides her clients to make positive behavioral changes. I have worked with several therapists and our counselor was the first to help me make genuine changes. Our relationship has improved significantly as a result of our work with her".

"I wanted to share my great respect for [our counselor] who is helping our marriage tremendously". [The counselor] is fantastic, has an impressive memory, and is extremely knowledgeable. We admire and learn so much from her!"

"Without your help our lives would be quite different and we just can't thank you enough.  We've moved forward in all aspects of our lives, closer, and more communicative than we ever thought possible.  There isn't a subject we cannot discuss or a dispute we can't compromise on".

"It has made a tremendous positive impact in our relationship. I feel that both of us have learned so much since the first time we met with you."

"I constantly remind myself of our sessions and your the newsletters.....always looking forward to them".

“You have been a treasure to us.  In a good session, you showed us the beauty in our marriage; in a  bad session you were a fair arbiter and kept the fighting clean.  We are so grateful for the help and support you have given us.”

"We were having the same fight over and over again. Our counselor at Couples Counseling Associates helped us understand our fighting cycle and turn things around."

"Words cannot begin to do justice in thanking you for helping our relationship."

“Thank you for helping us out of a scary and dark place.  We feel ready to move forward in our relationship.  Can we call you if we need a tune up?"

"Out therapist provided us with professionalism and compassion during the hardest times of our relationship."
