Most Helpful Counselor I've been to
Rick has been very helpful for me and my wife. He has saved our marriage. His insight and ability to ask thoughtful questions and get to the root of issues is very good. Been to several other counselors over the years and Rick is the only one I'd recommend. Everyone we know that has used Rick has been very helped by him. If you are struggling in marriage I'd recommend going to Rick. Give it at least 3-4 sessions before deciding to quit or not. I think you'll stay and be blessed.

Rick has a gift to speak words of truth to us in a compassionate and loving way. He speaks God's words into us in ways that can move us to love one another better. We've been seeing Rick for four years now off an on and he has helped us to gain strides in ourselves and our marriage that we could have never hoped to gain on our own. I can't think of a better investment, worth every bit.

My husband and I have been married for 28 years and have learned how to smooth over all the ripples but never learned how to dig deep. Rick's dedication to the Lord's leading has begun to open both of us up to learn how to communicate again and how to really understand some of the pain that we have shoved down for way too long. Rick has the perfect blend of using his experience to listen with empathy; yet challenging us to hard truths. Our marriage is moving from good to spectacular!!!

Marriage of depth
My wife and I have been having serious marital problems for several years from baggage I have carried around since adolescence.Meeting with Rick as a couple and individually has given our marriage a jump start! He has helped me see the idols I have put in place in my life and beyond recognizing them but also how to battle them through Christ being the center. Thank you Rick!

Rick has been fantastic to work with. He's been kind, understanding, very wise, and guided by his faith. We've learned so much as a couple. He's helped us heal through a time that might break apart most couples. I highly recommend him.

Exceeded my expectations
I was reluctant at first about going to counseling but I'm glad I went. Rick was very compassionate and understanding and he was able to expertly pinpoint my issues and help me understand my hurt. I learned a lot about myself in just one visit.

Real Listening, Real Help
I've been to see Rick several times through a difficult relationship period. He's a very talented listener and has the tools needed to help you discover a deeper understanding of yourself. He brings you along this self-discovery path. There's no pressure with him and I'm able to make appointments as I feel is needed for me. I saw a few counselors over this period and would recommend Rick as the most helpful.

Rick helped us save our marriage! His assistance was amazing as he lead us through some very challenging times. We greatly appreciate his guidance and wisdom, and particularly his ability to counsel us in a Christ-like manner.

My First Visit and First Impressions
I've not had much professional counseling, so I was a bit apprehensive regarding my first visit. Jewel's caring demeanor and insightful observations soon put me at ease. I left feeling I had someone involved with my pressing problems that was both sincerely concerned and equal to my complexities. Jewel is one of those people who is gifted with counseling troubled souls, a sensitive, gifted person with professional training.
Jul 15, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
My wife and I were very impressed with Rick and have already referred 2 other couples to him. We feel he really cares for us and wants to help. We feel he is very talented at what he does.
Jun 30, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Having never been to counseling before, I was pretty nervous as to what to expect. Rick made me feel very comfortable and it was a great experience.
Jun 24, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Practical and caring
Rick does a great job of helping me see. Untangling my sin with other people's struggles or sins and untangling my struggles with other people's sins or struggles is difficult. Rick does it with ease. He not only seems to intuitively know what is really going on under the surface, but waits for the right time to reveal too.
May 25, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Meeting with Rick was very helpful and gave me some clear insight and direction in Avery personal situation. He didn't "tell" me what to do, but let me reach some conclusions and gave guidance where it was needed. It was just what I needed!
May 29, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I had a preconceived idea of counselling and counselors that had me feeling skeptical but in the first session, my fears were quelled. I find Rick to be very gentle and kind. I also got the feeling that he was truly interested in listening to us and has a very unassuming nature. I look forward to future sessions.
May 12, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
What started as efforts to seek help in troubling times, will continue as part of a joyful life. I would recommend counseling for every time and season of our lives and let the frequency get worked out after you establish a foundation with a trusted counselor such as Rick. I am thankful for what God has done in my life so far through Hope Counseling Center.

Getting BETTER Every Week...
Rick has been, and continues to be instrumental in helping me avoid the "performance trap" and shame based system I've lived in and lived off nearly all my life. The hope I now have is irreplaceable and Rick has played a HUUUGE part in my recovery and renewal.
Apr 23, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Jewel has been seeing my "tween" daughter since the end of January, and we have been extremely grateful for the loving relationship she has built with both of us. She provides a safe place to explore emotions and thoughts and a place for my daughter to just be who she is with someone who meets her right where she is. Jewel is creative with my daughter, and we are thankful for the help she continues to give to our family. Excellent counselor!

A blessing from God
Rick has helped me personally, and us as a couple, understand God's design for our lives. He has been a huge blessing for both of us.
Apr 22, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Thank you so much
I want a thank God, and my mentors from church who recommended us with Rick, who is understanding very well me and my marriage's situation, and for giving solutions- answers, that I was praying for since many many years ago. English is not my first language and he is very patient and can understand me besides my wrong spelling and lack of vocabulary. I feel peace in my heart in every teraphy

Great counsel in a business conundrum
I'm close to God, my wife, and my kids (ok, the kids could use more time & attention, but...) but I have a whole lot of challenges in my work environment lately. Rick was able to gently unravel some recurring themes he heard as I rambled, which were very applicable to my management style at work. He has a wonderful, non-judgmental and empathetic demeanor that would make me trust him with deeper personal issues, as well. I'm looking forward to my next appointment.

Counseling with Jewel
Jewel and I have met only twice and she has already made a dramatic impact in my life. I am so thankful for her and the open, non-judgemental, loving atmosphere she provides. I look forward too our many times ahead. She is an incredible counselor and I would highly recommend her!

Counseling with Rick
I just had my first visit with Rick, and I found it very helpful. Rick was very understanding and compassionate of my situation and I look forward to getting with him again to work on my life and my journey back close to God

Counseling with Rick Pierce
January 21, 2015 I have been so encouraged by the grief counseling received by Rick. His tender heart and poignant insights and questions have helped me walk through the recent loss of a spouse. I am grateful the times together and the lasting friendship we have established.

COUNSELING WITH RICK PIERCE
I have had only amazing and beneficial experiences each and every time I have met with Rick. He brings an amazing blend of compassion, wisdom and truth to sometimes complex and deep situations. I would highly recommend him.

Saving my marriage....
When I called Rick I thought my marriage was over...but now I feel hope again! Calling was the best thing Ive done for myself in a long time. Im so glad we decided to go to that first appointment instead of calling it quits, I know that my marriage will always be stronger and I have learned amazing ways to communicate and listen that will help me in all my relationships through out my life.
Oct 30, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick is amazing!!
I feel like Rick has helped me see and understand so much in such a short time! Before you give up on your marriage give Rick a chance to help you repair what has been lost! The results could change your life for the better!
Sep 10, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
We are blessed to be working with Rick on restoring hope and trust in our marriage. He has a caring ear and great wisdom. In our first meeting, he uncovered the source of the problem. We're looking forward to finding the solution with his help.
Aug 29, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
My wife and I both really benefited from hearing Rick's perspective and counsel regarding our situation. He has an ear for those who are desiring to open their hearts and provides sound counsel for those seeking healing.
Jul 30, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick is caring, insightful, grasps on quickly to what you're saying, and asks all the right questions. I felt relaxed and safe speaking with him and I think he has got to be one of the best around. I am thankful for his rich relationship with Jesus that reminds me of God's handling in my life as well.
Jul 18, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick has been of great guidance and clarity for me. He has helped me to see things I did not know about myself as well as how to better understand my wife's communication to me. His insight has helped us both see how we can better love and support each other.
Jun 21, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Although Rick has not met my spouse he has given me great insight into what she is going through and this has helped me to be patient as we work to improve our marriage.
May 19, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I've never felt better in my mind and body than I do today. Beyond thankful for Rick's heart and transparency...
Apr 10, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Great care and professionalism. I enjoyed my time and felt a deep sense of hope and renewal through God's grace.
Jan 2, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick has been given the capacity to skillfully and gently help people navigate through storms of emotion and confusion and arrive at the truth of Jesus. In my life, he has been a fruitful messenger of God.
Oct 3, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick is a deeply empathetic and wise counselor and advocate. Would recommend him to anyone who is needing discernment/direction or who just wants to go to a deeper level relationally with God or others.
Jul 10, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I've been dealing with some personal issues for a while and felt like I needed someone, a 3rd party if you will, to help me work my way through it -and Rick was great - I am looking forward to my next session! I would whole-heartedly recommend using his counseling services.
Jul 2, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick has been wonderful for our relationship. He has an uncanny way to hear the needs of both my wife and I - and translate it to what we need to hear in order to love each other better. He has been a gift to our marriage.
May 1, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick has a gift. He is able to speak and translate both " Mars" and "Venus." He can call you on the carpet in a gentle non-threatening way where you can absorb it and work to move forward. He has been able to help where other Counselors could not.
Mar 4, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
caring and insightful
I have been in a lot of different counseling situations and rarely do I come across someone who can give me insight into my myself that I haven't already figured out but Rick did several times. He was able to understand me, give me feedback and all with a Biblical perspective and gospel-centered focus. I highly recommend Rick and will continue seeing him in the future.
Jan 13, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Time to refresh
I was so thankful for the simple fact that God was first and foremost invited to our session, personally. I think that this will provide very good for us. Although we did not get the "homework" I was looking for. .
Dec 23, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I highly recommend Rick
Rick has a great ability to communicate with both men & women. He has wisdom and yet is able to work with different personalities and issues. I've seen different counsel ours off and on in my life and he is the best.
Dec 5, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I always feel both listened to and instructed in helpful ways. Every session has been really helpful.
Oct 17, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I highly recommend Rick!
Rick has been great! I always leave encouraged by the truth he helps me see. For the first time I feel like I'm seeing the real problem and not just surface issues.
Oct 16, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Going to counseling at MarriageVine with Rick has been a game- changer for me personally and for my marriage. Rick truly was able to help me navigate through some very long standing addictions in my life and because of that it has truly moved me to be a better person.
Sep 13, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I highly recommend Rick Pierce
My fiance and I have attended several sessions with Rick to get pre-marital counseling. He is a godly man, a great listener and encourager. He has a very approachable and personable demeanor and excellent wisdom. I highly recommend Rick as a counselor and mentor.
Jun 25, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
My time with Rick Pierce was incredible! He did a fantastic job of helping me both psychologically and spiritually to understand some very deep issues affecting my life. I found him to be very kind and compassionate, but direct and forthright, as well. I highly recommend Rick.

Renewed Faith and Purpose
In my heart, I wanted to be with my husband but the agony of extended marital and financial suffering...along with trying to hold our family together, was causing me to doubt my convictions. Rick was the only person with enough faith & vision to see past my desperate place & encourage me to love well despite what I was seeing in my marriage. Now our relationship is moving toward healing and restoration. Rick has helped me see God and my marriage in a new way.
May 22, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
After over 10 years of struggle with our marriage we are not out of the woods yet. Just like another post, I can say that Rick has a gift and talent to speak how you are feeling, but unable to put it into words. We have only had less than 5 sessions and we already are seeing changes and most importantly...HOPE.
May 18, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
This is the first time I have gone to a counselor simply for a mental health check up. I have the opportunity to do this for work so I went. It was a great opportunity to just enjoy processing some of the things that make me tick. The purpose was to simply have someone connect with me and help me be aware of what's happening with me. It is so easy to invest in everyone else and neglect yourself/myself. Rick was an investment in me.
May 9, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
My fiancé and I have finished up with our pre-marital counseling with Rick. He can interpret what your heart is trying to say but you can't put into clear words. He wants to know your story and he can remember your story. Rick is capable of not only being gracious but being straight with you as well. He connected with me and my fiancé in a way we didn't think others could without judgement. Blessed to have Rick as our counseler going into marriage.
May 8, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
I have been working with MarriageVine for 6 months now and it is amazing to see how God has used Rick and MV to help me and my family stabilize and grow. I am better and more open since starting at MarriageVine.

Great Listener, Helpful Insights
My husband & I have recently gone to Rick for help in our marriage. Though we've barely started this journey, I have hope. I would recommend Rick, especially to married couples.

Excellent counseling services
My fiance and I have signed up for pre-marital counseling sessions with Rick Pierce. We enjoyed our first session together and felt that we got a lot out of the session. We found his counseling style to be empathic, sincere and helpful. He seems very insightful and introspective. We are looking forward to our next sessions.
Feb 15, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Exactly what is needed
Rick, has a heart for helping people get well. Very early into the session we were able to peel layers off and find the route of some of the issues. I've seen at least 4 different professional counselors and without a doubt glad I have ended up with Rick
Feb 13, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Rick put me at ease & quickly & accurately understood my situation & dilema.He's. insightful in his comments and gave me hope that he could point out misguided thinking/actions that I had struggled with esp about what the Bible says about marriage

Can This 37-year Marriage Be Saved?
Disbelief, shock, denial, anger, embarassment, and humility are a handful of the emotions MarriageVine Ministries is working w/us to sort out after 37 years of painful matrimony. I honestly don't know how this will end. But, I do know that each of us are healing from a lifetime of cyclic responses to each other. If we have a shot at renewal, it will be w/the help of a seasoned counselor w/the commitment to God's Word that I see w/MarriageVine Ministries.
Dec 16, 2011https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30175935
Warm and welcoming
Ive only been going to MarriageVine for a few months but I know from past experiences at other places that I don't want to go anywhere else. The enviroment is calm, warm and welcoming. And again even a few months in the counseling is just that much better than I have had before. Very understanding and easy to talk to. I would recommend MarriageVine to anyone.
