A Few Kind Words From Satisfied Clients

  • review rating 5  Anna Vita is an amazing therapist who is genuinely invested in the success and peace of her clients. She is warm, caring and you know she is intentionally listening to better understand your personal experience. I’m sincerely grateful for the journey and the growth I’ve experienced alongside her and know that I’m a better person because of it.

    thumb Kelly Timmins

    review rating 5  I have been seeing Anna Vita for about three years and she is one of the best counselors I have ever worked with. Anna really helps you see things inside yourself and helps you realize that you have the tools to improve yourself. She introduced me to EMDR therapy which has been a truly life changing method for me. I highly recommend Anna to anyone who is experiencing PTSD, depression and/or anxiety, she will help you change your life for the better, and for good.

    thumb Hannah Potts

    review rating 5  We started seeing Jim West last year, at the suggestion of our wonderful holistic doctor (who also works in conjunction with Jim). His expertise in child ADHD/Autism has helped immensely with our 6 year old twins behavior issues. He doesn't focus on changing the children, but more equipping parents with an arsenal of tools to help handle any given situation in a calm, effective manor. He is incredibly thorough with his advice and even goes the extra mile to email the suggestions talked about it in the session, which allows for a refresher in remembering what to say and do when situations arise. I have learned so much from him and it has made a HUGE difference in how we handle things at home, and, in turn, how our children respond. It's truly made us more responsive and understanding and less reactive, which ultimately has cultivated a calmer household. I HIGHLY recommend Jim West to anyone in search of help with parenting special needs children. He is a true gem in our community.

    thumb Cole Hayman
  • review rating 5  Both of my daughters, 19 & 16 years of age love Jim West and his team, they highly recommend TLC counseling and so do I. Great mentoring and parenting tips to make the teenage years smooth sailing, thanks Jim

    thumb Silvia P

    review rating 5  I have worked with Jim for several years through the social skills groups and camps. He is a compassionate individual who deeply cares for his clients. It is always a pleasure and fulfilling experience when working with TLC.

    thumb nodz podz

    review rating 5  5 STARS!!!! I am loving what I am learning from this program, it is empowering my son to take ownership and better understand himself, and how to do what is best for him, and for us as parents to help and support him.

    thumb JoAnn Toronto
  • review rating 5  Anna Vita is an amazing counselor. She is compassionate and empathetic and kind. She helps one think of things they wouldn’t normally and is a great help in my self growth. She is a great partner for the change in myself I am looking for. I think she would be extremely helpful to anyone who comes to see her. I recommend her highly. Why walk your path to self discovery alone? You could have an excellent navigator along the way.

    thumb fathewell p

    review rating 5  I reached out to Jim and his team at a vulnerable time in life when I really needed some help as I walked through some difficult times. Jim and a fellow councilor were super receptive and helped me unpack a lot of difficult stuff and I couldn’t be more thankful. Their care for their clients is evident in every interaction and it provided a safe place to learn and grow. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a great team to work through life stuff with.

    thumb Nick Ahlberg

    review rating 5  Was recently introduced to Jim West by a great friend of mine who like me refers clients needing mental health and substance abuse counseling all over the state. Can't say enough about Jim's personality and passion for helping people. TLC's team of professionals will certainly make the difference when dealing with the toughest obstacles life can produce. Look forward to using Jim West and TLC's resources for clients I'm so fortunate to help in the future.

    thumb Justin Fraser
  • review rating 5  Jim really has the experience and training to do what is best for our children, and makes sure that they have a sense of purpose and empowerment to succeed! I cannot recommend him highly enough! I wish that there were more dedicated counselors that get to the source of the problem, like he does!

    thumb inTheKnowInAmerica 28

    review rating 5  Jim helped my teenage daughter get her life back. She was on numerous medications to help manage her mood swings. With Jim's guidance we were able to put together a specific strategy for her growth. She is off all medications and thriving. She is much more clear headed and taking responsibility for her actions.

    thumb Jim Butler

    review rating 5  The staff here is very kind and they have helped me so much and I’m glad that I was able to find Total Life Counseling! When thinking as a 19 year old making a transition into adult hood, Jim West and TLC were able to help me see a different path to take and has lead me into a career and a future I wouldn't have foreseen without there help. Even now when I'm not physically in Florida, I am still on the phone with Jim West to keep branching and exercising my mind to stay healthy. Jim West as a individual person is one of the most down to earth and humble person I've ever met in my life time. I am very glad that I was able to take the step as a person to get into counseling because it has opened up so many doors for me all because of Jim and his amazing staff. If any person is able to turn a life around and make you think about different outcomes then Total Life Counseling is the place for you. I have been held accountable to the point that I've been able to reassess my own actions and life, being able to make a complete U-turn into being able to have the confidence and self-belief that I can be whatever I put my mind to and striving for greatness!

    thumb Jack Cannon

“He is doing so well! We are continuing with the diet changes and vitamins and his attitude is so much better. You were right! – kids don’t see you for very long [because of the diet, supplements and coaching]!  We are so grateful for your help. We were in a bad place before we saw you and I am really amazed at the difference.”

Anne Marie


“So glad you duked it out with us. You always gave way above and beyond what I think most in your field would have. And I don’t think anyone else could have reached our teenage son as you did. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.”


Parent & Teacher

“Jim, thank you again for giving so much of your time on Friday. The feedback I got from everyone that attended was extremely positive. I also gave a copy of your DVD to one of our teachers. Your help will make an enormous difference for Daniel both at home and at school.”


“We were so thankful to Total Life Counseling. Over the past five years, we had seen five other counselors/psychologists with our son, but in the last 1 1/2 years our son gained skills to cope. The ADHD/Social Skills group helped our son realize that he was not alone. The parenting skills group helped us know how to anticipate problems and equipped us to handle them. Thank you Jim and Total Life Counseling – you are an answer to prayer.”

Tim & Janet
