Tony Fryer definitely knows what he is doing when it comes to helping couples with their marriages. My husband and I desperately needed counseling as we were on the brink of seperating. He does not sugar-coat anything and gets right to meat of the problem. After about 6 or 7 sessions, he had my husband and I going in a very positive direction. It has been one year since our last session and we are still doing great. I would highly recommend him to any couple, especially the sceptical ones!

I am a Clergyman that was giving spiritual counseling to a young man named Steve, age 20. He suffered from low self esteem, and consequently became a constant user of marijuana. This frequent drug used exasperated his problems, because his depression and lethargy worsened. I knew he needed more help then I could give him, so I sent him to receive counseling from Tony Fryer. After a series of intense sessions, the results were dramatic. Steve has been drug free for 8 months, is happy, and is doing great at college. He will soon be inducted into the National Honor Society. Steve has a whole new lease on life thanks to Tony's guidance.

Dr. Tony was incredibly helpful to my husband and me. He was able to quickly get to know us and dove deep into important parts of our relationship and relationships with others to help us get to know one another and ourselves more intimately. I have recommended him numerous times to friends and family members.
My wife and I are very pleased with Tony. From our first session with him, we were impressed with his insight. He seemed to know when we were not saying what needed to be said. Eventually we got to the point where we were comfortable enough to say everything that needed to be said. We both felt that he was good at not taking sides on any particular issue. He was patient, warm and friendly. He gave us the tools to improve every aspect of our relationship, not just fix one particular problem. He helped us understand each other better, so know we can appreciate each others motivations for doing some of the things we do. Tony saved our marriage. What could be better than that

Tony brings a breadth of experience and perspective to counseling. He sees how the whole family histories of husband and wife affect the couple and their relationship; he helps each couple see these patterns in their own set of facts. He understands the impact of child-rearing on a marriage. He also is able to help a couple grasp how a marriage evolves over time, including later stages after children leave home. His perspective on sexual issues is very constructive, warm, and non-threatening. Tony has an engaging personality and a professional demeanor which make it easy for both men and women to become comfortable in the counseling environment. Tony can address any feelings new clients might have that seeking therapy is a sign of failure or weakness. Excellent therapist; positive experience.

Tony is a genuine, honest therapist who takes the time to understand both sides of a story. My life is richer and fuller in part due to my participation in therapy. Tony helped me during a very turbulent time in a relationship and helped me to move on in a way that helped me to retain my dignity as a person. I am very grateful for his dedication and care.

The time that my wife and spent with Tony saved our marriage - it truly was the most beneficial investment that we collectively made in our marriage. The 6 months we spent in his care was transformational in the most positive way. Simply put: its been a huge success and we have Tony to thank!

The best thing about our couples sessions were it eventually got us talking - not always in a good, constructive way, but we're talking now. But we just didn't feel valued, or heard or understood. He repeatedly said he was 'ignorant' of a lot of the details in our lives, and that's fine at first. but after a dozen or 20 sessions it wears thin and comes across as disingenuous.
We could probably benefit from more counseling, but after this we're hesitant to go out there and risk a bad experience again. Ugh. Bleh.

We spent way too much time and money in counseling there; should have bailed-out earlier than we did. It's more of a he-said/she-said atmosphere and very little progress gets made. Buy a few good books instead, and make an effort to read and work through them together - you will get further. Try any of the books by the Gottmans, for example.
