Richard Meeks was available for our evening requirement time slot so we took the appointment for a couples session. We had two sessions with him before we decided not to waste our time/money. Although a nice person, his approach to couples therapy was not helpful to us. He went on talking about theories and philosophies for half of the session, when we desperately kept trying to get the conversation back to US and the reason we came in. He couldn't remember anything about us in the second session (1 week later) and didn't give us anything useful. We left more frustrated than we came! He seemed like he wanted to simply prolong how many visits we had with him rather than try to get to the meat of the problems. We did find a different Gottman specialized therapist after him and realized what REAL therapy is supposed to be! I usually don't write reviews, but felt compelled to because I wish somebody had written something realistic before I went in! I wouldn't recommend Richard Meeks! (Family Services/Wellsprings was great though!)

We used Family Services for a few sessions of premarital counseling. They were recommended by my company's EAP program and we ended up with Dr. Richard Meeks. He was a great therapist, and even won over my husband who was quite resistant to the idea of counseling. He was very practical and not "touchy-feely", which we both appreciated. He was also extremely up-front about the cost, if we wanted more sessions than my insurance would pay for. We really appreciated that kind of honesty. He also didn't "push" us into buying more sessions.

The office was comfortable, very discreet and quiet, and offered late evening hours, which was convenient. Parking was plentiful.

Hopefully we'll never need counseling again, but if we did, we'd return to Dr. Meeks!

PROS: Dr Meeks is fantastic, parking, evening hours
CONS:
