Mike has been a terrific source of help and support throughout the entire time he's been my counselor, coming up with interesting exercises and great literature on the topics I was dealing with and easy to talk to.
Dr. Michael is very helpful and understanding when it comes to how he asks the right questions that the patient would be comfortable and confident to answer until the "aha" moment comes with his methods to offer a better help.
He's personable, shows he cares, follows up and seems like an awesome guy.
This is an excellent counseling service. They learn about your needs and the areas you want to work on to set you up with a designated qualified professional that will be best suited for you. I am very happy to have this support and someone who can help me make the best choices by helping me look at the situation more clearly.
