REAL Testimonies from REAL Clients
Our family has been working with Ryan doing custom intensives individually and as a couple. Through the intensives, Ryan has been able to quickly uncover past traumas, addictive patterns, dysfunction in our family system, and in us individually. He is helping us to heal, repair, and restore our family and ourselves. Participating in a 2-3 day intensive provides the unique environment that allows deep therapeutic work that could take months to reach in traditional weekly therapy. Along with Ryan’s knowledge and experience, he brings the compassion, kindness, accountability, and support that is necessary to safely work through difficult issues. It is amazing how far we have come in such a short time. We are blessed to be working him.
Miles & Stephanie (and family)~Columbus, OH ~ Intensive clients
I came to the Finding Place Counseling because I was struggling with something that I couldn’t see on my own. I needed another set of eyes on my life. As a therapist myself, I am very picky about who I would open up to. I wanted to work with someone who had just the right balance of training and knowledge. Another therapist friend of mine, who I deeply respect, highly recommend I work with Ryan. Ryan is just as knowledgeable as he is compassionate, so addressing hard things means he was my ally who was in my corner and wanted the best for me. His temperament is gentle but his approach is direct and that is exactly what I needed. I live out of town so I flew in to Little Rock for an intensive. Honestly, it was the best investment of time I have made in my adult life. The insight gained from spending concentrated time one-on-one has been invaluable and helped me make sense of much of my life’s pain.
I am a stronger husband and father and even a better equipped therapist after working with Ryan. I highly recommend working with him.
Josh ~ Detroit, MI ~ Intensive client
We believe with our entire hearts that God appointed Ryan to care for our son and work with our family. Ryan’s care was intense, unwavering, compassionate, and challenging. We had to take a hard look at our relationships, and discovered many truths within the fabric of our family that needed major interventions. Through the therapy process, we were able to uncover the things in our family which for years had been ’swept under the rug’. Ryan wasn’t afraid to lift up the carpet.
Brad & Melanie ~ Birmingham, AL ~ Intensive clients
We were referred to Ryan when I discovered that my 11 year old was introduced to internet pornography. Also, I had been stuck in a toxic relationship for years. I’m grateful that Ryan wouldn’t let me stay stuck, and challenged me to do the work required to make things better. Ryan has continued to work with my oldest son regarding the early porn exposure and has helped us with other issues as well; grief, abandonment issues, parenting challenges and my youngest child’s anxiety. Thanks to Ryan and the work we’ve done together, I’m finally living the life I never dared dream was possible.
Jill ~ Little Rock, AR ~ Outpatient client
Our family is so grateful for Ryan and how he’s helped our family heal and move forward after really challenging circumstances. He is a gifted counselor who is approachable and yet speaks truth and wisdom, getting at the heart of the issues in a compassionate and balanced way. He meets each person right where they are, without judgement, but helps them step toward healing, growth, and recovery. We would highly recommend him to any family, couple, or individual.
Joseph & Rebecca ~ Houston, TX ~ Intensive clients
Because of choices our adult son was making, our family was thrown into chaos and fear. I can still remember Ryan’s calm voice giving me direction with some first steps. As my husband and I met with Ryan, he stepped us through resources that helped us realize what we did with pain. It was eye opening to understand that we had a family cycle problem and not just a person problem. We have discovered some of our own root issues and Ryan has lead my husband and I into emotional healing. We are so thankful for Ryan’s wisdom over our family. We are experiencing a lot of peace and our son is having progress not perfection.
