Michael Woosley probably saved my life. I now truly believe I can beat my addiction. He offered me so many different routes and options on how to beat my addiction. He’s open minded and an excellent listener. He also would call me out on my bullshit which I greatly appreciated. He would point out to me when I was displaying impulsive behavior just in our conversations. I think of him as family. He’s been my only therapist and he’s the only therapist I want. He is also a damn cool guy. I love this man
