Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Zai Martial Arts is the best thing that ever happened to us and my son. My son began when he had no interest and could not do any of his steps. The instructors were so encouraging and worked with him one-on-one. My son has tremendously improved, loves this place so much and never wants to miss a day. The instructors pay so much attention to these kids, and I love the way they know each kid by name, which makes one feel at home. I love the dedication, discipline and courage martial arts has built in my son.” – Joy M.

Not Your Average Martial Arts Center

Zai, the owner of Zai Martial Arts, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Zai Martial Arts apart from the many other martial arts centers in Nevada. Here’s Zai’s response:

“We are known for making it as family-oriented as possible. We typically invite people to walk around, take notes and give us feedback on what it should look like to a parent.”

Zai went on to tell us that they let their students come and check them out without committing by offering a six-week trial.

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Zai Martial Arts and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Zai had to say:

“Our mission is just teaching because we love doing this. At Zai Martial Arts, we are dedicated to serving our students and families at the highest level. To do this, we constantly improve upon our curriculum, instructors’ training, facilities and the life skills we teach. We are always investing in the way we serve you.”

Building Success Through Organic Reviews

When we asked Zai about Zai Martial Arts’ secret to such a strong online reputation, he told us that, while they sometimes ask for reviews, most of their reviews happen organically.

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Zai Martial Arts has spread the word about who they are and what they do through Facebook advertising. They also drive students to the school.

Clearly, Zai knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other martial arts centers out there:

“You have to really have good customer service. We want to please our instructors, students and parents. Make sure you have a good, clean, precise curriculum that you are teaching.”

Nevada’s Top Rated Local® Therapists and Psychiatrists Award Winner: David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist is an award winner for therapists and psychiatrists in 2019.

If you are looking for an empathetic and communicative therapist, look no further than this award-winning company!

David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews with an average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 92.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top three therapists and psychiatrists in Nevada!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“A friend of mine recommended David to me for counseling. I was very apprehensive about going to a counselor. I didn’t know how I would ever talk to a stranger about my struggles. Well, David never felt like a stranger to me. He is so welcoming and supportive. I felt immediately comfortable with him. He helped me with things I’d still been struggling with from 30 years ago. I always felt support and encouragement without judgement from David. He is very caring, and always provided me a positive light. He has helped me immensely, and I am truly grateful for his amazing support. Thanks to David, I’ve come a long way. He is awesome. I highly recommend David.” – A.R.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Therapist

We were excited to learn all about David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with David Lory VanderBeek.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist stand apart from its competitors. David told us:

“I am not interested in a specific model; I am interested in people. I craft my practice to the needs of the individual. I really specialize in post-traumatic stress disorder. I do a lot of PTSD, whether it’s accidents, military, abuse, domestic violence, or different types of trauma and loss. A lot of psychiatrists shy away from that, but I like to approach things differently. I learned early-on that we have the opportunity to get to the root of different disorders, but a lot of people just diagnose symptoms, and not the cause. I will spend hours with somebody to get to the root of their problem and make them feel safe.”

He went on to tell us more about his background and some of the ways he works with people:

“I use energetic psychology, whether it’s through acupressure or yoga. I know how to attack trauma in an effective way… Spirituality is very important to me, as well. Almost every single client believes in a higher power, so working on things on an intuitive level is very important. As a grad student, I was exposed to a lot of holistic methods and plant-based healing. Using all my modalities helps speed the healing up. I am not interested in alleviating symptoms; I do healing and success consciousness. The bad has to be replaced by something positive, permanently.”

David shared:

“I work alongside my clients, not telling them what to do. The answer emerges from within, I just have to present the questions.”

Building Success, Online And Off

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist has spread the word about who they are and what they do by educating the community on different holistic methods. He said that most of his business comes thanks to word of mouth.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist has managed to. We asked if David could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“I suggest that every doctor either have a Twitter, run a free group, or live stream sessions or lectures. Use Facebook, and get your grades from your clients.”


Congratulations to David Lory VanDerBeek Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to David for taking the time to speak with us!
