Not Your Average Counseling Center

We wanted to know what makes Idaho’s number one counseling center so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with CEO and Founder Luke Einerson.

The first question we had for Luke was what makes Integrated Counseling and Wellness unique compared to their competition in Idaho. Here’s what he had to say:

“We have exceptional clinicians and administration that all enjoy working together — that goes a long way. We put in a lot of work to make the client experience feel healing when you walk into our front office. The office just feels like you’re getting quality services. There’s a comfort aspect to our space. We focus on providing integrative care by providing psychiatric services, as well as other wellness and counseling services.”

We also asked Luke about Integrated Counseling and Wellness’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Luke told us:

“The mission of Integrated Counseling and Wellness is to influence multiple levels of systems so that more joyful ways of living are created and maintained by our patients, teams and communities. We strive to help people get well, stay well and be well.”

Building Success Through Active and Passive Review Acquisition

When we asked Luke what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Integrated Counseling and Wellness, he attributed it to the combination of active and passive review acquisition they use.

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Integrated Counseling and Wellness has spread the word about their service through local SEO (search engine optimization), as well as by working with a marketing company, who they meet with every week.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Integrated Counseling and Wellness has. Here’s Luke’s advice for them:

“Find a group of people that you trust and that are accountable, report back and work with you. If you feel like you have someone that’s on cruise control, fire them.”


Congratulations to the team at Integrated Counseling and Wellness for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Luke, for taking the time to speak with us!

If you’re looking for evidence-based therapy in Northern New Jersey, look no further than Lukin Center for Psychotherapy in Hoboken and Ridgewood.

Lukin Center for Psychotherapy has received dozens of reviews on three verified sites with an average rating of 4.54 stars, earning them a magnificent Rating Score™ of 77.40 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 therapists and psychiatrists in all of New Jersey!

“Dr. Lukin exhibits a very caring and gentle manner, while at the same time, provides great insights into the motivations that underlie one’s behavior. His sessions are both interesting and challenging. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional in his approach and makes you feel very comfortable right away. [He is] very compassionate, patient, understanding and open to working with other providers to create a well-balanced, comprehensive approach to treatment. Highly recommended.” – A.P.

A One-of-a-Kind Therapy Center’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Lukin Center for Psychotherapy has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with Dr. Konstantin Lukin, who co-founded Lukin Center for Psychotherapy with Dr. Paula Yanes-Lukin in 2012.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Lukin Center for Psychotherapy unique compared to the many other therapy centers in New Jersey. Dr. Lukin told us:

“I personally spend a lot of time and care in making sure that we follow a very smooth and streamlined approach, from the time that a potential client calls in to when they leave the practice. There is great oversight over everything that happens here at the practice. We specialize in evidence-based treatments, which are considered short-term treatments. We usually see patients in three- to six-month spans. We tend to the issues that are going on, so that the client can be able to move on without coming in and needing to see someone like me.”

Dr. Lukin went on to say:

“We have offices in Hoboken and Ridgewood, New Jersey, and in New York City. We are a practice with a wide range of clinicians. Because we have a group private practice, we are able to serve a wide range of patients and problems, and we conduct neuropsychological and personality assessments.”

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at Lukin Center for Psychotherapy, Dr. Lukin pointed to their extensive training in evidence-based treatments, and said:

“I spend significant time nurturing my staff’s professional development here at the practice. We typically hire doctor-level clinicians, ensuring that we are able to provide a high caliber of clinical care.”

Making the World a Better Place Through Exceptional Clinical Care

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Lukin Center for Psychotherapy and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s Dr. Lukin’s response:

“Our mission is to provide exceptional clinical care by applying evidence-based treatments.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Lukin Center for Psychotherapy has grown through Dr. Lukin’s television and radio appearances, as well as through the writing he does for Psychology Today. They also have a significant social media presence.

It’s clear that Dr. Lukin knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Have a niche for your product, exceptional interpersonal skills and evidence-based services.”


Congratulations to the team at Lukin Center for Psychotherapy for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

Maintaining a Strong Online Reputation by Building Great Relationships

Sarah James, the owner of The Counseling Place at Lone Tree & Castle Pines, sat down with us for a few minutes so that we could catch up about what her team has been up to over the last year.

Every new year comes with new lessons and new achievements, and when we asked what those were for The Counseling Place at Lone Tree & Castle Pines, Sarah told us that one of her biggest challenges is keeping up with the constantly changing technology and that one of their biggest accomplishments has been purchasing an office in Lone Tree and expanding their team by three therapists.

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Therapists & Psychiatrists Award Winner: Family Care Center

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Family Care Center is an award winner for therapists and psychiatrists in Colorado for the second year in a row!

From counseling services to medication management, Family Care Center in Colorado Springs is the mental health center to turn to for your needs.

Family Care Center has received hundreds of reviews with an average rating of 4.78 stars, earning them a fantastic Rating Score™ of 96.82 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for being ranked the number one mental health clinic in all of Colorado!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“[They have a] seriously amazing staff. They care about their clients and the well-being of the family. Dr. Ryan takes time to listen, acknowledges when you understand information and discusses measures to improve your health. Jennifer L. is incredible. She has been amazing through a difficult past few months and helped provide me with much-needed support. I can’t say enough good about the office staff.” – R.A.

Not Your Average Behavioral Health Center

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Dr. Charles Weber, the CEO and Medical Director of Family Care Center.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Dr. Weber about what it is that makes Family Care Center unique compared to the many other mental health clinics in Colorado. Dr. Weber told us that the biggest difference is the quality and cultural competence they provide when dealing with current and ex-military; 75 percent of their staff is military-involved. They are a one-stop shop, with medication, talk therapy, group therapy, couples therapy, etc.

Dr. Weber went on to tell us that they are family-owned and that they have expanded throughout Colorado Springs and all of Colorado. Although they focus on serving the military, they realize that there are a lot of non-military people in their community who they can help as well.

We also asked Dr. Weber about the Family Care Center mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Dr. Weber told us about the many ways they give back, including volunteering with Heavenly Hope Foundation, partnering with Mt. Carmel and supporting the 4th Judicial Court District’s Veterans Trauma Court program, which provides assessments and treatment to Veterans who are involved in the court system.

Building Success by Providing Patients With More Dedicated Time and Resources

Dr. Weber credits Family Care Center’s strong online reputation to their culturally competent staff, to the quality service they provide and to the fact that they take fewer clients so that they can provide them with more dedicated time and resources. Their focus is on quality and on bringing people together.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Family Care Center has grown through word of mouth throughout the military community and Colorado Springs.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Dr. Weber’s expert advice for them:

“Take time to focus on quality, and make sure you’re giving clients the attention they need.”


Congratulations to Family Care Center for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Weber, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Family Care Center in Colorado Springs. Visit their website today!

Dr. Winder went on to tell us that he offers a free consultation to anyone considering becoming a client. Dr. Wilder has a secure, easy-to-use video conference platform and makes his services available in the manner his clients prefer, even if they prefer not to come to the office.

We also asked Dr. Winder about Dr. Alan Winder Psychologist & Divorce Mediator’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Dr. Winder told us:

“Psychotherapy is all about helping people improve their quality of life. Relationship counseling is about improving the quality of people’s important connections to their life partner or other important figures in life. Mediation is about reaching solutions that avoid unnecessary conflict and anger. All of these are about improving the lives of my clients, and our concrete, goal-focused approach makes it possible to see this clearly.”

Building Success With a Solution-Focused Approach to Treatment

Tennessee’s Top Rated Local® Therapists & Psychiatrists Award Winner: Nashville Psych

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Nashville Psych is a 2019 award winner for therapists and psychiatrists in Tennessee!

If you’re looking for a therapist who will serve you with professionalism and compassion, look no further than Nashville Psych.

Nashville Psych has received multiple reviews on three verified sites with an impeccable average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 94.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five therapists and psychiatrists in all of Tennessee!

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

“Dr. Goldstein is a compassionate and caring provider who strives to give the best care he can at every visit with his clients. A good therapist is extremely hard to find, and I am grateful to have found one who is in it for the love of patient care and well-being.” D.I.

Not Your Average Therapy Center

Daniel Goldstein, PhD, the Founder of Nashville Psych, 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 Nashville Psych apart from the many other therapy centers in Tennessee. Here’s Dr. Goldstein’s response:

“We are a one-stop shop for counseling in Nashville, and we really take pride in providing excellent customer service to our clients. When people are ready to ask for help, they shouldn’t have to wait weeks for a return call. We offer counseling to children, adults, couples and families, as well as career counseling and group therapy. We place tremendous value on the client-therapist relationship, which research shows is the best indicator of success in therapy. We are also known for our psychoeducational assessments for both children and adults, which means that we help diagnose people who have ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, a personality disorder or a learning disability.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Nashville Psych and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Dr. Goldstein had to say:

“Our mission is to provide the support, guidance and tools necessary to help our clients experience relief from suffering and be empowered to achieve their full potential.”

Building Success by Providing Quality Therapy

When we asked Dr. Goldstein about Nashville Psych’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“I think the secret to our strong online reputation is providing quality therapy to clients. Therapists cannot ethically request feedback from clients, so anyone who chooses to review us on Google or Yelp is doing it 100-percent on their own. That makes positive reviews even more meaningful to us.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Nashville Psych has spread the word about who they are and what they do by sending announcements to physicians and families in the area via mailers, by sharing practice news with the Nashville Psychotherapy Institute, by connecting with other mental health providers in central Tennessee and by building relationships with pediatricians, internal medicine doctors and schools.

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

“The most important way to grow and maintain a strong online reputation is to ensure that you are providing top-notch care for your clients. Search engine optimization, blogging and social media marketing are key components to building awareness about your practice or business.”


Congratulations to the team at Nashville Psych for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Goldstein, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Nashville Psych. Visit their website today!

Washington DC’s Top Rated Local® Therapists & Psychiatrists Award Winner: Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry is a 2019 award winner for therapists & psychiatrists in Washington DC!

When you need professional psychiatry in Washington DC, you need Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry.

Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.60 stars, earning it an outstanding Rating Score™ of 88.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five therapists & psychiatrists in all of Washington DC!

Not Your Average Psychiatrist

Dr. Maheen Patel, the owner of Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry, generously gave us a few minutes of her 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 Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry apart from the many other psychiatry clinics in Washington DC. Here’s Dr. Patel’s response:

“I would say that I am very outside of the box, and I approach healing very differently. I endeavor to look at struggle and suffering in more complex and multidimensional ways. I have many of my own treatment innovations. I seek the origin of presenting symptoms and endeavor to incorporate avenues of healing that address the root of issues. I truly care about my patients and forge a compassionate connection with every person who comes through my doors seeking help. The psychiatric care I provide is not just left-brain and analytical. My work with patients also powerfully incorporates my really intuitive and very creative right brain. When you align the two, that is where I have found the most profound healing occurs.”

Dr. Patel went on to say:

“I went into medical school knowing I wanted to be a psychiatrist. From age 12, I was fascinated by the mind and proceeded to study it from every perspective, from psychoanalysis to neurochemistry to existential philosophy. For me, the choice of my profession actually consolidated slowly over the course of my entire life. Psychiatry is not just a destination of education for me.”

We also wanted to know why Dr. Patel does what she does and how she works to make the world a better place. Dr. Patel told us that her aim is to provide compassion and caring for her patients, and said

“Everybody deserves to have a better life and to be happy! I have always been involved in pro-bono work. I do not operate from an elitist perspective. I believe everyone deserves to feel better and to forge a happy and fulfilling life. I love what I do and find it deeply fulfilling.”

Building Success Through High-Caliber Psychiatric Care

When we asked Dr. Patel about Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“I strive to provide high-caliber psychiatric care that is not bottom-line oriented. I operate from a holistic perspective, with deep compassion for my patients and focus upon maximizing overall health and healing, rather than upon simply alleviating a constellation of symptoms.”

In addition to being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, Dr. Patel has also been named one of America’s Top Psychiatrists from 2007 through 2016 by the Consumers’ Research Council of America and has won the Patients’ Choice Award from 2014 – 2018.

Clearly, Dr. Patel knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Focus most on the quality of your contribution to people’s lives, and be less concerned by image. Strive to transform people’s lives, every patient every day. I won’t accept a patient to just accept a patient. I need to be certain that I can do justice to every patient I assume and that I can provide the highest level of care for each of them. For that reason, I cannot accept all patients who approach my practice. Each patient merits a considerable investment of time, energy and care. I do not take this lightly.”

Dr. Patel ended our conversation with this sentiment:

“I am grateful for my patients, who have allowed me into the deepest recesses of their minds and hearts and have invited me to help.”


Congratulations to the team at Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Patel, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Maheen Patel, M.D. PLLC Psychiatry in Washington DC. Visit their website today!

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!

We were excited to learn all about Tides Of Mind Counseling and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the founder, Iolanda Marucci.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Tides Of Mind Counseling stand apart from its competitors. Iolanda said that her team makes all the difference. She told us:

“When I choose my team, I’m looking for people that have compassion for others and people that have an ability to connect with others. I also seek out people that are humble enough to want to learn about others and their experiences. I look for people that are well-rounded. We speak 14 languages as a group, which helps us connect with others. We normalize mental wellness, not mental illness.”

We asked if Iolanda could also share a bit about their overall business mission. She said:

“Our mission is to connect with clients. Life is like the tide. We sometimes feel invincible, but we are just in flux.”

Building Success, Online and Off

Not Your Average Therapy Center

We wanted to learn all about Randi Cohen, MD, PhD and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Dr. Randi Cohen.

The first question we had for Dr. Cohen was what is it that sets Randi Cohen, MD, PhD apart from her competition in Connecticut. Dr. Cohen told us that most other psychiatrists are only trained in psychodynamic therapy, but Dr Cohen has lots of cross-training, which allows for a more rounded approach. Dr. Cohen has expertise in a variety of techniques, including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral and cognitive processing therapy.

“I have been fortunate to be able to help people who are stuck in their lives find ways to move on productively, to help people improve the quality of their relationships and to help people’s inner worlds become more tolerable and even pleasant and rewarding in ways that they may not have imagined possible. Generally, my goal is to help others become more comfortable with all aspects of themselves and live more in accordance with their values, and to develop and strive for goals consistent with those values. I am contributing to the world one person ( and one relationship) at a time.”
