Through Marney's professional work, God was able to mend my wounds and make me whole again. He has allowed me to see the imperfectly perfect person I am in His eyes. God's goodness then overflowed into my once dying marriage and all other aspects of my life. Marney's work is very serious and thought provoking; however, once fully committed, God will handle the rest.

My wife and I had hit a rough patch in our marriage. I was skeptical to attend at first but after my first visit I was extremely grateful that I did. Marney was very professional and easy to talk to. He gave us the tools to build our marriage back up and sure enough we are better than ever. I am forever in debted to him. I would highly recommend him.

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Marney Defoore. I was always very impressed with Marney Defoore ability to handle my stressful situations and to be able to make me feel relax and very comfortable. I've been a patience of his for over 3 years and couldn't even imagine how I would be able to learn about myself without his present. His knowledge and expertise was very helpful to me. I truly believe that Marney Defoore will provide mental health services to individuals and families.
in San Antonio, TX |
I was referred to Marney by a friend, and have not looked back. After a few private sessions it was recommended that I work through my trauma in an intensive 3 day session. I have never experienced such ground breaking therapy in my life. Working with Marney has not only helped me process out of my marriage in a healthy way, but I have gained so much insight into myself. He makes himself available where he can, and he accepts Tricare. I would highly recommend Marney my friends and family.
in San Antonio, TX |
My experience has been so pleasant, I have already referred a close family member. Marney is professional, prompt, patient and kind.
in San Antonio |
As a pastor, I frequently need to make counselor referrals. I have complete confidence to send folks to Marney, both in his skills and in his Biblical world-view.
in San Antonio, TX |
Incredibly helpful, makes you feel comfortable from the second you walk into his office, very professional.
