Written by K.E. on May 12, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Simply put, Mike is just awesome! I never felt so heard and listened to in my life. He has a dearth of experience and understanding of tough situations. He is Yoda to Lukeskywalker to me. That pretty much sums it up.
