... I attended counseling because I struggled to build relationship with people in my neighborhood. I did not know how to get into the circle of mothers with young children in my neighborhood because of my extreme shyness. At one point, It got so bad to the point I was fearful even just going out of my house. Counseling has helped me to better understand myself by looking at my perceptions and emotions. I learned to foster positive thinking and implement a variety of positive actions... Now I am able to spend good time with people in my neighborhood. I feel released and liberated from big anxiety and fear. Counseling is very good!"

...Prior to coming to counseling, I was afraid to explore the roots of my fear and anger. Counseling was truly an eye-opener! Initially, I had imagined counseling to be a painful process of digging out my past, which scared me. But, actually, it was not the case at all! What really good about counseling was that I was enabled to organize my mind, which I could not do on my own. In counseling, I also learned how to communicate more effectively with people in my life."

... my wife was the first one who sought Dr. Andrew's counsel in the beginning, but then she requested me to join counseling together. To be able to fully express oneself honestly to others is not easy for Japanese. However, when I came to Life Design Counseling, I myself was surprised that I could be very honest about myself and my family concerns. Counseling has helped us not only to begin talking about our existing family issues, but also enabling us to discuss them at home. Our couple communication has started to impove which increases the positivity  in our family situation. For those of you who struggle with family relationship issues like marriage and parenting, you might want to consider Life Design Counseling so that you can find short-cut solution to your concerns."

... Thank you for restoring our marriage! Several months ago, we thought getting a divorce was the only solution to our marital problem. Through your objective and sensitive counseling approach, you restored our confidence and rekindle hope for having a good marriage and family."     

                             ~ A couple in their 30s

... It is not easy to trust people these days. No one I can talk to openly without fear being judged. But I feel safe with you. I can trust you! Thanks for everything."                                                                                                                      ~  A 57-yr-old male client

... My stress was over the top to the point it caused trouble in my relationship with my spouse and children. I learned stress management and communication skills at Life Design. I live life differently now. Stress is more managable and life is more enjoyable. I wish I had come sooner to seek your counsel, my life would have been so different if I had done that. I am looking forward to continuing to grow."                                                     〜 A 50-yr-old female client

Client's Review


The Clients' Words About Our Services ...

... After graduating from university, and landing a pretty good job, everything seemed to be going fine until my anxiety took control of my life. I did not know what happened to me, what I knew I was starting to lose confidence in myself and it was affecting a lot of things, such as losing sleep and appetite, decreased self-esteem, work difficulties, troubled  relationship with others, etc. I was recommended to seek counsel at Life Design. I committed to work with Dr. Andrew for a total of 8 sessions, and I rediscovered myself. I learned to understand and manage my anxiety and learned other life skills. I am able to keep my job and live a normal life again. I Strongly recommend Dr. Andrew!"
