Michael is very empathetic, encouraging, a great listener and has helped me a lot with my grief, depression and self-esteem in only a short amount of time. I really enjoy the thought provoking questions he asks as it really helps me reflect in ways that aren't easy to do on my own. You can really feel how much he cares. He will help you see and understand yourself in ways to help you heal.
