100% engaged in the betterment of me. Doesn’t allow me to stay in my feelings. Always assertive with solid direction and advice.
He is the first professional to have actually made me feel like I was getting help.
Dr. Gordon is is very patient, understanding and honest. He understood me on a very deep level and tries to address the concerns I have, very accurately. His advises are very meaningful, intelligent and resolving in nature. A true professional who genuinely cares. I would highly recommend him.
Michael is very good at what he does, his experience and expertise says it all.
Dr. Gordon helps me to see the big picture , the entire 360; he’s engaging and listens. I always feel confident I can get through the many challenges in my life after a session.
Dr. Gordon has stuck with me through some very low times and always provided constant support. Even when I was unable to maintain sessions he never let me feel alone or forgotten. Knowing he is there for me has enabled me to have a sense of strength and control even when my life seemed a disaster. I cannot recommend him enough.
I worked with Michael Gordon on relationships issues/breakup and to identify how I can change negative thinking patterns. He helped me by explaining in a clear way. I could see his solution finding approach. He is smart and I could see his long-term experience with a variety of issues. I will rely on him when I identify that there is more work to be done - work starting with myself.
Dr. Gordon has been inspiring throughout my counseling. He truly understands my disorder, which allows me to feel hope for a better future.
I truly feel he wants to help me.
The sessions with Dr. Gordon have been very positive. He has a natural ability to lift up someone’s mood and most importantly, communication with him is very clear and I can feel he understands my issues very well.
