I would highly recommend Dr. Larner. I have developed a lot of new skills and have new outlook into my life. I see him individually, but he has helped me in my relationship and developed new and better communication skills.
We would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Brad to anyone! A few months ago I was reading these reviews just like you might be doing and wondering if my husband and I should call him to make an appointment. We did and from the first appointment we were sold on him and his style of counseling. He gives solid, helpful advice and has a special way of getting to the heart of problems really quickly. If you truly are looking to do some soul searching about changes that need to happen in your life he will sincerely help you. He has a gentle way of giving advice that isn't hurtful but it really hits the mark. He reminds us about how God wants us to be without being preachy. My husband and I have already learned so much about ourselves and each other from him and our relationship has improved drastically. We are finding better ways to deal with life's problems and we can't thank Dr. Brad enough for his help. I prayed for help in my life and I believe God helped me find him. If you are still wondering if you should make an appointment, take a chance like we did, you won't be sorry!
We started with Dr Brad, as we lovingly call him, about a year ago with teenage son. The teen years are not only rough for the teens but also us first time parents of a teenager. Dr Brad was fantastic with relating & getting thru to my son, explaining teen thinking to us, and getting us to really understand each other and work together to communicate. I can't say enough good things, I learned a lot on how to handle things, how I was coming across to my teen, and how to do better with both & get better results. Always very direct, fair, and honest. Our son never complained about going, he loved having that person to confide in & help him to communicate better with us. Dr. Brad made it clear that he was there to help him. We are very thankful to have found such a wonderful teen counselor. Even in emergency situations Dr Brad was available either by fitting us in or communicating with us by text or phone. We have & do highly recommended him.
Dr. Larner was a blessing from God…and a blessing to our once broken marriage.

I initially had reservations that it would be several sessions of my husband and I venting about all of the issues we had with the other before any real counseling began. However, that was not the case at all. Dr. Larner is extremely skilled in questioning techniques that get to the heart of the issue very quickly which in turn allowed us to address specific issues in the very first session. He will also tell you that his success rate is higher than other counselors because he will suggest things others won’t…FACT…and that has made all the difference! In addition, Brad challenged each of us about our contributions to the problems and about our capacity to make individual changes to resolve them. With each subsequent session, he held us accountable for those changes. He offered specific strategies for changing our relationship and coached us how to use them. Dr. Larner’s advice is priceless…and if both the husband & wife are dedicated to making those changes…a marriage CAN be saved…OURS WAS!
Dr. Larner was very helpful and provided a depth of conversation that was lacking in other therapists visited previously. He was very to the point and spent a good amount of time listening before providing a thoughtful response. His help walking me through a rough time in life was invaluable and helped me gain confidence in my life moving forward. Flexible, punctual and professional. Would recommend to friends and family as well.
Dr. Brad Larner was very helpful in counseling my husband and I. We saw him for marriage counseling and he was always able to help us by providing sound advice that referenced the Bible. He listens, guides and gives an honest opinion when discussing issues that need resolve. I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking help.
Very compassionate and knowledgeable. He approaches issues by looking at the entire picture, and it's quite effective. He does have a tendency to go off on tangents, but he is effective nonetheless. I've already recommended him to several friends.
By far the best counselor I've ever seen! I appreciated that he listened and was not judgmental, yet gave Biblical advice in due season. I felt very comfortable sharing, and talking through my personal baggage. I also appreciate that he really takes the time to sympathize and empathize with you. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering counseling.
Professional, compassionate and very knowledgeable. He took am impossible situation and helped us work through some very difficult and sensitive issues. I love how he is able to teachyhe skills that are needed to deal with situations between sessions. He is spiritual and non judgemental which is a rare asset in his field. Much thanks for helping me out. 😁
Dr. Larner, WoW! I decided one day that maybe it was time to see someone for the issues I was having with my marriage, leading into other issues being unraveled from childhood traumas, military,work and religion all balled up and hidden causing conflict in my life right under my nose. I will admit I was very skeptical about going to talk to a Therapist, but I've reached a point in my life where I just couldn't do it on my own and I needed and wanted answers. I can honestly say I made the right choice to see Dr. Larner. My Family, Friends and Co-Workers have noticed and mentioned the change they see in me and I have Dr. Larner to thank for I am a happier person enjoying life one day at a time am a "WoW" in progress!
