What people are saying about Dr. Dome-
“Looking for a marriage therapist was not a fun experience. I was desperate for a good therapist, someone my husband and I could trust, someone who could make sense of the mess our marriage had become, and help us bring the future we saw together when we got married into reality. I absolutely cannot describe the relief I felt when we left Lance’s office the first time, I could feel the weight of the world off my shoulders; I KNEW he could help us, and I began to have hope for our future. Lance is incredibly good. He has a way of putting my husband and I at ease, we were able to talk about things that should have been embarrassing but somehow weren’t. He is able to see through things that to my husband and I seem hopelessly complicated and make them simple and doable. He stays neutral and doesn’t take sides. He is understanding, empathetic and very well educated. We drive over 40 minutes one way to see him because we know he’s the best. Lance has been critical in saving our marriage. I have and will continue to recommend him at every opportunity.” – Susan*
“We have worked with Lance the past six months and he has been incredible at pulling us back from a marriage that had essentially disintegrated. He took the time to understand both of our poor assumptions and incorrect thinking patterns. He gave us great hands on tools to help us reconnect and then the follow-up counseling to help us continue to move forward. Highly recommend him to any couple that is struggling.” – John*
“I was not personally very excited about seeing a counselor; however, with that said we didn’t have a choice. Our marriage was struggling and Lance was fantastic allowing each of us to speak and vent about issues we had yet maintain a very comfortable environment. The progress we have made was not even conceivable 6 months ago. I would strongly recommend Lance to anyone needing help.” -Bill*
“My husband and I worked with Lance during some very difficult periods of our marriage. He was able to help my husband (who wasn’t crazy about therapy) feel comfortable and at ease sharing his feelings. This was a HUGE step for my husband. Lance was very insightful at helping us realize our negative patterns that were damaging our relationship with ourselves and each other. We both felt that our feelings were heard and valued. Lance really helped us hear what the other person was saying and not how they said it or how we interpreted it. Seeing Lance greatly helped us learn how to communicate in a positive and meaningful way. I would definitely recommend him!” -Marcy*
“My husband and I have met with lance for six months now and we have benefited greatly from his expertise. He is very gifted, insightful and educated. As a counselor myself I have great respect for his dedication, empathy and ethical standards. As newlyweds lance has helped us establish a solid foundation. We highly recommend him.” -Alice*
“I have been working with Lance for almost 2 years. When I met Lance I was an inpatient at a treatment center struggling to cope with symptoms of Major Depression, Post Traumatic Stress, and Alcoholism. His professional knowledge, human understanding, and genuine interest in improving the quality of life for those he works with has made it possible for me to trust him with my story. Two years ago I was hopeless and my life was unmanageable. Through working with Lance I have gained a level of self-efficacy that I didn’t deem possible before. He has assisted me through many hardships as I rebuilt a life and set goals for myself in early recovery. I am now working on my college degree, raising my daughter on my own, and continuing to progress everyday. I’ve had other therapists who did their job, with Lance his career is a calling. In my life that has made all the difference.” -Lucy*
