It has taken me a month or more to start the process of trying to conjure the correct words needed to reflect how outstanding Acadamy Counseling and Mike & Arica are.
I want to preface this by saying that I did not believe in therapy or counseling. I thought it was for the weak-willed. I called Acadamy at a time of true turmoil and thank GOD Arica answered the phone. She immediately put me at ease about my decision to face my own shortcomings and misconceptions about counseling.
Throughout my first 3 sessions, I could tell that I was wrong about the stigma in our culture behind therapy my whole life, and it’s something that I have been not needing, but missing all this time. Arica has a fantastic way of taking the way you think and flipping it on its back and making you realize that it’s ok to need help and that the way you have been perceiving life was not quite what it should be. As a 30 year old male, that was my biggest fear, admitting I needed help and she was able to call it out in me right away.
To Arica directly, you have humbled me. You have taught me life lessons in the short amount of time that we have known each other. You have taught me a new sense of self love and realization that I did not know existed. I truly thank god for putting you in my life everyday. I do not know where I would be if I hadn’t made the choice to call and make an appointment and for that, you have my utmost love and gratitude.
I would ABSOLUTELY 1000% recommend Acadamy Counseling to anyone who has been in therapy before, needs a tune up, or is new to counseling in general. You will walk in and feel like an immediate priority and both Mike and Arica are two of the nicest, most genuine and non-judgmental people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Thank you both for everything you have done and I know will continue to do.
The sessions have been beyond helpful and validating. Arica is a compassionate, non judgmental listener and provided me with so many tools that have helped navigate life's stressors. I left her office feeling hopeful and renewed. Definitely would recommend Academy Consulting to others.
I have been through over a dozen counselors in my time and Arica is truly amazing at what she does! It’s hard to find one that truly cares about your issues and gives great advice to resolve issues in your life! Very easy going and forward with thoughts and ideas. Truly a blessing to have met her for myself and daughter 👍
