Micheal is a good listener and has great tools to help you discover and understand what you are dealing with. He also makes you feel safe to open up and speak your mind. He makes me feel like he is on my side cheering me on and encourages me to keep pushing towards what I want to accomplish. It was a great first experience in therapy.
