If you or a loved one is in need of counseling services in Chandler, Dalena Watson Counseling is here to help you find the healing you need.

Dalena Watson Counseling has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 5.00 stars and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being rated number two out of all therapists and psychiatrists in Arizona!

Here is just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve received from their clients:

“Dalana is fantastic! She is warm and compassionate. She makes me feel at ease and like I can really open up to her. This is huge, as I am easily intimidated. I also feel like I am not just paying someone to complain to. My sessions with her are productive, and she always gives me something to think about between sessions. She is solution oriented. I’m excited to think of the progress I will make with her help.”

Not Your Average Counselor

There are many things that set Dalena Watson Counseling apart from other counselors in the area. For one, Dalena has a lot of experience in different services, and she offers alternative treatments that aren’t readily available with just any counselor, like music therapy.

Additionally, Dalena has a heavy presence in the transgender community, and Dalena Watson Counseling has become a refuge for individuals in the LGBTQI community. Not many other counselors have such a long-standing reputation in this area.

When we sat down with Dalena and asked her why she does what she does, she told us that she’s in it to help people level better and not feel stuck. She helps individuals and groups move past trauma and other experiences, helping them get back to their truest self, be who they are and to find healing and a deep level of transformation.

Building Success Through Experience and Word of Mouth

When asked about Dalena Watson Counseling’s secret to such a strong online reputation, Dalena credited it to her longevity in the field. She has been in business for 27 years, and through all of that time, she has built a reputation as a safe, trustworthy person to talk to.

Word of mouth has been a huge growth factor for Dalena Watson Counseling, and her clients regularly pass her information along to other people in the community, particularly within the transgender community. Furthermore, Dalena does referral lists and networking, and she partners with a medical provider who sends leads her way.

When asked what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation, Dalena had this to share:

“Speak to your customers and take action.”

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Award Winner: Erie Colorado Counseling

We are proud to announce that Erie Colorado Counseling is a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner! We had a chance to speak with Dr. DeLuca about her business’ online reputation and her commitment to compassionate and well-rounded care. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

As a small business owner, I don’t undervalue the importance of a strong online presence. My online reputation can be attributed to a wide range of things. I have strong professional affiliations, not the least of which is the American Psychological Association Media Referral Services. Psychologytoday.com is also a notable professional affiliation of mine. A great website has also contributed substantially to my positive online reputation. Beyond that, Twitter and Google have proven particularly effective for my business’ needs. Life is full of challenges. I remain amazed at the indelible courage and determination of those who continue to persevere against all odds, and I am proud to play a part in their lives. Having an online presence is essential in allowing me the privilege to continue to help others.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

Validation. Everyone has value. As human beings, we have the need to belong and to be accepted. Validating another person’s life experiences, without judgment, communicates acceptance. As a licensed clinical psychologist, my initial goal is to validate and accept the life experiences of the people I am privileged to work with. I believe that it is a privilege to influence the lives of others. I strive to provide my patients with the best care possible. In doing so, I am very cognizant and respectful of the fact that the right match when choosing a therapist is critical, and that it is important to acknowledge that not every therapist-patient relationship is a good fit. In these cases, I take the time to research and provide the individual with a referral list of qualified professionals that may better accommodate their needs.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

The greatest reward that I have received as a clinical psychologist has been the invaluable honor and privilege of sharing in the lives of others who have challenged and encouraged me to “assume nothing and question everything” in an effort to make a difference. This responsibility, however, is of great magnitude. But, I could not see myself in any other profession. It is a privilege to influence the lives of others. Life is a learning curve. Some days are harder than others, and some days are really, really hard to get through. Sometimes we need guidance and a sense of direction to help get us back on track. Erie Colorado Counseling is a great place to start.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Many of our purchasing decisions are influenced by conscious and/or unconscious emotional factors. In short, we buy what makes us feel good! Keep in mind the psychology behind your online presence. For example, the role of emotions in business and marketing is key to the success and longevity of any business. Does your business marketing strategy communicate on an emotional level with the public? Make an earnest effort to understand what the public wants. Ask yourself “Why should the public choose your business over other similar businesses?”


Thank you for speaking with us, Dr. DeLuca! We appreciate your time. Congratulations to the entire team at Erie Colorado Counseling on your 2018 Top Rated Local award!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Therapists and Psychiatrists Award Winner: Heart-Centered Counseling

Top Rated Local® is proud to announce that Heart-Centered Counseling is a 2018 award winner because of their outstanding Rating Score™.

Heart-Centered Counseling in Northern Colorado takes a heart-centered approach to helping patients throughout Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley find relief and comfort through life’s toughest moments. Whether patients are looking for individual therapy, couples therapy or psychiatry, they’ll find care, compassion and help with Heart-Centered Counseling.

The one-of-a-kind team at Heart-Centered Counseling has earned an award-winning Rating Score of 93.47, as well as many positive reviews. Here is an example of just one of the many outstanding reviews they’ve received from their clients:

“Carl and his staff were there for my children at a dark time in their lives. Carl was willing to get my kids in for the much-needed services even though they were not quite fully taking the insurance we had at that time. ‘Heart-Centered’ is an appropriate name for this practice. The care my family has received comes from the heart not from the pocketbook, like certain big corporation counseling services in the area. They don’t create more stress if life happens and you happen to miss an appointment or two. They are more concerned with just helping you get back on track and what you need! Thank you, Carl, for your big heart and for hiring such an amazing staff!” – Donna W

How has Heart-Centered Counseling managed to earn so many glowing reviews and such a wonderful online reputation? We sat down with President, Dr. Carl Nassar, to find out. Here’s what he had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

Whether patients contact us over the phone or visit us in person, quality client care is always our number one priority. All of our counselors truly care about our patients. And we handle everything, from scheduling to the insurance, allowing our patients to relax and focus on getting the care they need. Every single person within our organization is dialed in and on the same page — we are all focused on providing our clients with quality care.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

We accept Medicaid and Medicare, and we can even help our patients get set up on these programs. Most providers don’t accept Medicaid or Medicare because they can be difficult to work with. However, we care about our patients, and we want to find a way to make our services work for them. We also accept insurance from all medical providers.

We see patients of all ages, starting at just three years old, and we work with people with all counseling needs, including those with eating disorders and those who have dealt with sexual abuse. We work hard to ensure that our services are convenient for our clients by making them available seven days a week.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

Our mission is to be a life-changer in the behavioral-health space. Colorado has a shortage of providers, and we are here to do everything we can to be there for anyone who needs us.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We work continually to build more awareness within the community by working with other doctors in different practices and getting involved with county systems and local nonprofits. We also try to get into the local schools directly.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Deliver a great product to your clients, and take the time to care. Also, make sure that you have a website that welcomes people when they get there.


Thank you so much, Dr. Carl Nassar, for taking the time to share your wisdom, and congratulations to you and the whole team at Heart-Centered Counseling for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

“Reaching and connecting with a person that is dealing with sensitive addiction issues in any area takes a special skill. Robert J Johnson not only has the skill and ability to effectively work with those addiction issues, but his personality is also safe and welcoming. I highly recommend Robert and his staff.” March 2018

“Robert has been there for me and my wife as we have gone through some very difficult struggles. He has helped guide us by providing great insight and constructive dialogue. He has great resources for the right type of help outside of himself and has always made himself available even outside of business hours, doing everything he can to accommodate us. You can tell he takes his job seriously and deeply cares for his clients and their path to recovery, and we wouldn’t have the hope for our future that we do without his help. I would recommend him to anybody who finds themselves or a loved one going down a difficult path.”  2017

Owner, Robert J. Johnson sat down with us to provide a detailed look into how A New Outlook Counseling Services garnered such a positive online reputation.

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

When it comes down to it, if you want something, you’ve got to ask for it. We ask our clients for reviews whenever appropriate and also send out text message campaigns to stay connected.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

We’ve been helping people through our long-term recovery services for nearly 20 years. That has taught us a lot of valuable lessons both personally and professionally. We’ve gained a great deal of empathy through our work, and we take pride in being compassionate and relatable.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We fully believe that a strong team is a key to success in all areas of life. Our marketing strategy consists of working with a PR and media coach, as well as writing optimized blogs on our website. We also work hard to maintain a strong social media presence on Twitter and Facebook.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Beyond all else, focus on helping others. That’s what it’s all about. The people you serve will be able to tell if that is your intention, and they’ll feed off of it. We also believe that all of our success can be attributed to learning from people who know more than us and have different or even greater experience than we do. We’re constantly learning.

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Therapist Award Winner: Alpha Counseling and Treatment

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Alpha Counseling is a 2018 award winner!

Not only has Alpha Counseling and Treatment landed a spot as one of the top 10 therapists in the state of Utah, but one of the top three! Their phenomenal service and dedication to the people they serve has truly been reflected in their online reviews, where clients like this have discussed the impact Alpha Counseling has had on their lives.

“I have been a client of Alpha Counseling for the past 2 years. During that time, I have worked with an individual counselor and participated in weekly support group meetings. My time at Alpha has truly changed my life. The care and attention that the therapists give to their clients is unprecedented! Regardless of the reason you seek counseling, Alpha’s staff embraces everyone as someone in need of a friend. They work to address how to deal with your problems rather than assign blame for them. I look forward to every meeting with my therapist. In my opinion, Alpha’s unique group of therapists is completely underrated. They put the needs of their clients far above themselves. My life is better because I went to Alpha Counseling and Treatment.”

Not Your Average Counseling Center

We got a chance to speak with one of Alpha Counseling and Treatment’s caring therapists, Mace Warren, about his experience with Alpha Counseling and Treatment and how they built up such a good online reputation. He credits the Alpha Counseling difference mainly to sticking with the times. “We’ve moved [on] from antiquated methods and practices for our clients. Some other providers still use older, poor, even potentially dangerous treatment methods for their clients. Our clients and community are safer when clients are treated with the best methods available”

Mace made it clear that their goal is to help clients lead lives that are happy and productive.
He said, “We have a unique understanding (as much [of] what we do is to help ensure community safety) that our clients are going to come back to our community, and that they will and can live regular lives. We know, despite many clients’ pasts, that people who value their life don’t want to commit new offenses. They want to live their lives. The idea behind our practice is to help them live as successfully as possible.”

Building Success Through

Sometimes, a business’ secret to success can be hard to pin down. But for Alpha Counseling and Treatment, it couldn’t be more clear. “[We’re] dedicated to practicing evidence-based treatment that provides a way to help people make positive changes and improve their lives. We are [also] extremely dedicated to and practice evidence-based (have been verified through empirical research) practices, methods, models, and treatments. This provides clients with methods to help make lasting positive changes in their lives. We strongly invest back into these practices to ensure future growth in treatment options.”


Congratulations to the team at Alpha Counseling and Treatment for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
