Testimonials

Joy Hanson created a welcoming and nonjudgmental environment to share details about our marriage. We were simply coexisting, but after our sessions with Joy we are best friends again. We'd highly recommend anyone that is having a difficult time in their marriage to contact Joy. Her suggestions saved our family!

I met Gary during a time of great despair as my marriage had fallen apart and was headed for divorce. As I worked with Gary on my own personal life, my husband eventually joined me and we began the road to restoration together. We both are so thankful that God used Gary in our lives to compassionately reveal truth, teach us how to communicate, and give us useful 'tools' to work together through our personal strongholds. Gary provides a safe place in which we both feel heard and are comfortable being real and honest, and now, we turn our visits into 'date night'!

I met with Joy on two different occasions in the past to help me find ways to make my marriage healthier and my life more balanced. She was an attentive listener, asked thoughtful questions that helped uncover areas where more attention was necessary, and provided me with useful resources (books, professional articles and questionnaires) to guide me through this learning and strengthening process. On both occasions, Joy knew when I had learned what I could from her and at that time, we agreed that additional sessions were no longer necessary. She was always open to reengaging whenever I felt the need in the future. I would highly recommend Joy's counseling services to friends and family.

Working with Gary has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. He has a welcoming, supportive and non­judgmental style, and his insights help me think through things and come to my own conclusions. I also appreciate his emphasis on outcomes. The work I’ve done with him has resulted in some wonderful personal and professional developments in my life.
