Arlene provided us great counseling when things got a little rocky early in our marriage. We have not had major issues since and my wife is seeking her out for some "people pleasing" qualities she has that is hindering her career.

My husband and I went to Arlene for marriage counseling. I think we went for a total of 10 sessions and we learned how to better communicate with each other. Arlene helped us to each take ownership within the marriage and not play the victim. We took an in-depth look at our early experiences and found how that had shaped us in how we deal with conflict and resolution. Arlene pulled no punches when one or the other was off track, but she also was sympathetic, warm, and encouraging. The bottom line, if you truly want to be in a marriage, you have to personally work hard at it and Arlene was a great guide. We are the happiest we've ever been!

My husband and I went to Arlene for marriage counseling.  We both think she was great!  She was warm and understanding.  She was able to help us learn how to communicate with each other and address our issues with one another like we've never been able to do before.  And she did it in a way that neither of us felt like "the bad guy".

I will not recommend Arlene to anyone else.  Arlene does not understand the underlying issue.  She lacks of understanding, knowledge and patience.  We have spent 12 sessions with her, it is absolutely waste of time and money.  Arlene would recommend couple to divorce instead of finding the true root cause to solve the issue.

I would like to refute your comment...Arlene definitely takes the time to get to the bottom of the issue. No one likes to admit they are a problem in a marriage but once you take ownership, the marriage can heal. Arlene is a ball buster and will point out fairly if you're off track. She is also very patient, kind, and understanding as I spent many sessions in tears over my marriage...I found her extremely sympathetic.

Arlene saved our marriage. She was a great mediator and got to the root of our issue. Maybe yours were too complex for a counselor. We hit her early before things got out of hand.
