You have been wonderful for us to lean on, an excellent listener who has the insight to know how to interpret what we are trying to communicate to each other and a good friend with good advice! Thank you for aiming us in the right direction and even though we veer from the path, we seem to eventually find our way "moving toward each other" again. [J.H., email]
My husband, family and I have benefited greatly from Tim's life experience and wisdom. His effectiveness would certainly be lessened without his ability to relate to us through his own life experience. We are so grateful for the journey we are on, and would be in a completely different place... And not a good one... without the guidance we have received from Tim Tedder. [Lori, online post]
I just wanted to express how grateful I am to be counseling with you. I'm sure you get more than your fair share of emails in a day. I wanted this to be one of those emails that you are able to look at and say you made the right choice in becoming a counselor. I can truly say that I get it now. [email]
Sharon is a great listener who is very empathetic and truly wants to understand your perspective. She gives amazing clarity to situations and her guidance through trauma experiences using EMDR was phenomenal. When she first suggested EMDR as a technique for my trauma recovery, I was skeptical, but after only one session, I really felt a major breakthrough. I have felt much better emotionally and mentally and Sharon has played a huge part in that. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
[Jenn] impressed me right off the bat. She was empathetic, compassionate but direct....strong. Exactly what I needed. I am going through a very difficult time and she extended to me the type of kindness that a good, trusted friend would extend. I can't express enough how grateful I am. [Google review]
I thought I would thank you again for helping us get our marriage back on track. I don’t think there is anyone else we could have worked with that [my husband] would have been as responsive and openly emotional with as he was with you. We were destined (divinely, I am sure) to find you... Your counseling was invaluable. [email]
My wife and I came to Tim Tedder about 5 years ago, w/ a marriage in shambles. Tim provided sound advice and instruction and we attribute most of the renewal of our relationship because of his intervention. He gently challenged us and 5 years later, we have the healthiest of marriages... Highly Recommended! [Ryan, online post]
The help and insight that I received from Tim has been invaluable to me, getting me through the most difficult time of my life. I am normally a pretty guarded person, but immediately, I felt very comfortable because of the obvious sincerity and understanding shown. Tim shows high level of professionalism, and at the same time, takes a person interest in people. Especially after hearing about some friends' experiences with other counselors, I am so thankful to have found a counselor that is real and really remembers the humanity of people and relationships, and doesn't keep things cold and unrelatable. I would (and often do) highly recommend Tim and Sharon to anyone needing some help in their lives. [Aileene, online post]
Tim helped me focus on attitude and communication techniques to help recover from marital issues. While I never expected my husband to even agree to counseling, he responded positively and willingly to Tim's counseling and worked to repair the damage to our marriage. [client survey]
Tim is absolutely amazing. He helped my wife and I more than I know how to say. He gave us the tools to have a happy relationship. Personally, he has also helped me through depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. He has also helped me through a spiritual crisis. I can say that I'm way more stable now because of the good work that Tim has done, and I'm thankful. [Anthony]
I originally went to see Tim Tedder in 2009 in a serious marital crisis. He was literally a life saver at that point in time and has continued to be at various points over all of these years. His counsel, guidance, support and ability to educate and see things clearly and offer insights and strategies has been what has gotten me through some of the most difficult experiences of my life. [online post]
Counseling with Tim benefited me as a person and also my marriage in significant ways. Tim listened, recommended other resources, and was willing to offer feedback that we needed to hear. He offered practical concepts that were useful as we tried to make positive changes. He was also humble enough to share his own personal challenges and missteps. I have recommended Tim and would definitely seek help from him again... [Anna, client survey]
I wanted to thank you for your help with [my husband] and I four years ago... You helped us tremendously. We honestly do not think we would have made it through our storm without your assistance. I know you must wonder what happens to couples you help and never see again. I have been meaning to write you for years, but just never did... I'm happy to report that [we] are better than ever. We even added another child to our family. I don't think this email is enough to show my appreciation but we will be forever grateful for you. [email]
We want to thank you for helping us save our marriage when we were in "crisis" mode. Your counseling enabled us to move forward and to begin our healing process. We have no words to express the gratitude we have towards you. [email]
Tim did a superior job of blending his own personal experiences with research and practical techniques that really helped us... Tim nudged us each appropriately to recognize and do things to push through the issues and emotions that were keeping us apart... I can already feel a big shift in how we're approaching our problem.
I appreciate your help this morning and I am so happy that you had a time slot open for us. I have never been to a counselor before and I was absolutely terrified coming in. You made me feel comfortable and I know I have made the right choice in seeking your help. Thank you so much... [email]
Tim knows how to be honest to you about something that may be hard to hear but does it in a way that never makes you feel beat down. Instead, it would challenge me and get me excited for change. Tim is a great listener and never pressures to talk about something that I wasn't ready to talk about. He knows how to help bring healing to such deep wounds and to a place of freedom or forgiveness. [Diana, client survey]
The sessions provided me with a sense of clarity in my relationships.The dialogue and tools provided by Currents Counseling helped me better understand where i needed to focus my attention. I'm grateful for the time I spent with Tim to help me through some troubling times. Thanks Tim... [Chris, social media post]
Sharon is exceptional at understanding particular needs and adjusting her approach to meet those immediate needs... [She] makes me feel very comfortable, understood, and valued. She is understanding and open-minded but at the same time has clear healthy values about marriage and family life and how to actually live it in a manner that is Healthy and fair to all... -R.T.
I wish I had started with Tim much earlier on in my marriage, however his counseling has been integral to learning more about marriage and individual issues that got in the way. [client survey]
This has been a very difficult year for my husband and I with many issues. However, through it all Tim has been there for us. He has been such a supportive counselor and has shown us just how much he cares about us. His guidance, care, and concern have been beyond what I could have ever hoped for when we started with him. [online post]
Tim has communicated that he values approaching his clients with grace and care. In my sessions with him, I have not only experienced these elements, but have also received competent, skilled counseling feedback. [client survey]
I firmly believe that Tim saved our marriage. He was always compassionate but fair and never made either of us feel as if one were right or wrong. He is an excellent marriage counselor... [R.H., client survey]
Just a note to say how thankful we are that God led us to you. We appreciate your guidance as you've walked through this with us. Our marriage has become more than I could've asked or thought. Thanks for being a significant part of our second chance. [card]
Without the help and guidance of Tim Tedder my husband and I would not be where we are today. Through individual counseling and group therapy Tim helped us both recover from an incredibly low point in our relationship. Since then we have faced life challenges that we never would have been able to handle prior to seeing Tim.
To say thank you to the person who has helped me so much seems like an understatement. The amount of care, compassion, support & encouragement have been unbelievable. I will be forever grateful & thankful for everything. [Jennifer, client survey]
Thank you, Tim, for your help in shining light on difficult issues with my bf and helping me be strong enough to make some tough decisions. I felt listened to, understood, with the feeling of solution focused progress, not sessions-on-sessions of no progress or solutions...
I have worked with Tim to get through my husbands affair, reconciliation and later split. Tim was always helpful and encouraged me and in many ways helped me keep track of where I was and where I was going. At times, I thought I was making no progress, or slipping, or dwelling and he helped be objective and moving along. I always felt better after a session, especially when I was in crisis. [N.C., client survey]
Thank you so much for the help you gave us last weekend. You know I was desperate, but I have new hope. [My husband] has been talking to me in ways I haven't heard for years, and I think I have a better understanding of what he desires from me. We look forward to coming back this summer. [retreat evaluation]
I owe my life to you Tim Tedder. You were not just a counselor but a guide and resource at a time I really needed it. I tell people about you all the time and would recommend Currents Counseling highly to anyone considering counseling and especially during the crisis recovery period. [Facebook post]
Tim was my true advocate with an unrepentant spouse and helped me to get free. [K.H., client survey]
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through the terrible process of a spouse's infidelity. I appreciate you and everything you have done so much. You have a forever fan in me. [Facebook]
You taught me a lot about myself. I thought I'd put the past in its place, but it never was really dealt with... You taught me how I want to be... how to go about being a better man. Thank you. [email]
When I came to Tim Tedder / Currents Counseling almost 2 years ago, I had essentially destroyed my marriage. Did I expect Tim to wave a magic wand and save my marriage? No. Does anybody have that sort of a magic wand? es, you do; and this is what Tim showed me [and my wife]. Tim didn't promise that he would save my marriage, but he did say that he would help me to make myself a better person. He provided me with the framework and the tools for me to become the better person I wanted to be. Two years later and I am still working on that; its a life long process.I am miraculously still married to the best person I know. I don't know how, but I know that I can thank Tim for that.... [Al, social media post]
Just wanted to say thank you again for today. It's days like this when we sit & talk with you that I realize how important those sessions are. They keep us on track & bring clarity to the situations we're facing. [email]
Tim's approach was just what we needed. Tremendous progress after just two visits. We intend to keep seeing Tim for further enrichment on an ongoing basis. [client survey]
