I've had a few therapists throughout my healing journey, but never one like Michael. When I started seeing Michael for therapy sessions I was in a dark place. I left each session feeling hopeful, accepted, and supported more than I had ever felt in my life! I'm so thankful for his ability to see who I am and what I need to support me on my journey of loving myself and building a life I'm proud of living!
Thank you, Michael!

Michael has been the one and only person that I have been able to connect with and share my life experience and feelings, the first therapist I connected with who gained my trust to fully open up my deepes pains and struggles. I am very grateful, he has been a blessing by helping me to get out, through, and forward some very difficult times. Thank you so much!

Michael is excellent at his craft. He listens with care and is open and honest with his feedback. He supports me without coddling, encourages me without setting false expectations, and allows me to direct the conversation, but helps to guide it Wonce we're on the road. We have a great rapport, but I'm also delusional. That last part was a joke. ;-)
