I have only had 2 sessions so far but already feel comfortable opening up with her. She takes on board everything we have discussed and offers me ways to help me acknowledge and potentially overcome the issues at hand.

Michal has been extremely helpful and has truly changed my life. She listens to me and helps me dig deep to get to the route of anxieties I’ve been feeling. She has given me coping mechanisms that work and celebrates my success when I’m able to use them and apply what we talk about during our sessions. I’m so thankful for her and appreciate the help she’s given me!!

Im so thankful to have been so supported by Michal. She’s genuinely been amazing every step of the way. She listens and supports me so much, with absolutely no judgement and just makes the sessions feel like a really safe space. She has given me super helpful techniques to use with my anxiety & panic attacks. Very grateful for her, and for all the help and support she’s been giving me.

Michal's insight and keen awareness speak to her experience and expertise. She has given me so many tools to cope with my anxiety while also helping me to understand the sources of it. I have become more aware of my own emotions and i have finally learned how to process and, more importantly, acknowledge them in a healthy way. Michal has been a tremendous help.

Mrs. Collier is a very good counselor I feel heard and understood when we gave our counseling sessions. I don’t feel rushed or as if I have a time limit, she lets me take my time to explain things in depth which makes me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend Mrs. Collier.

My Counselor Michal Collier continues to wow me with how thorough and thoughtful she is to my process and journey. My life.... is just changing before my eyes.. and I don't think this part of my life would have been as bearable without the guidance and empathy I've truly been needing as I process this process. Somebody made a great decision by helping place her in this organization.

Even though I’ve only had one session with Michal, I left it feeling so much better and having a clear understanding of next steps to take. I’m excited to see where this journey takes me and how Michal will assist in this process.

Michal is wonderful! She listens actively and asks me the right questions to help me better understand the root of what I'm feeling.

Written by J.A. on Jul 24, 2020 after therapy with Michal for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Michal is amazing. Just after one session, I already felt an improvement in myself. She listens attentively and makes me comfortable to talk about anything. She provides exactly what I need, which is structure. Every week, she gives me a relevant worksheet that helps me work through certain feelings and thoughts. She offers a variety of methods to use when I start feeling anxious or angry. She fosters continual improvement outside of the session, which I feel is sometimes hard to find in a therapist. I love that after a session, I feel better emotionally, physically, and mentally. And then, I use her advice and worksheets to carry that positivity into the rest of the week. I always look forward to our sessions.

Written by P.E. on Jan 26, 2020 after therapy with Michal for 1 month on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I love Michal! She is the 11th therapist I have tried therapy with and I was very close to giving up, but 10 minutes into the first session I already knew she is the right one. I finish every session with her happy and high for a few hours, and I feel the progress also without the painful digging in the past and uncomfortable topics. The talks with her are so pleasant and her smile is contagious. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to do therapy with her.

I am so content, and blessed to have been paired with Michal as my counsellor.
I find she is compassionate, and intuitive to what needs to be addressed. She knows exactly how to pin point certain areas in your life that you need to focus on. I have been with her for a month now, and I feel that I am making a lot of progress in her presence. She is very encouraging, she knows how to build you up, so that you may be the best person you can be. I appreciate her worksheets, she will always try to give you some homework of reflection. I would recommend Michal 100%. I am excited to see what more I will discover about myself, with the guidance from Michal.

The video sessions were very comforting, I felt connected immediately and the conversations were well rounded, focused and efficient. We managed to cover all my main concerns.

Moreover, Michal provided me with extra material, tools and techniques to rely on when I am experiencing difficulties and those techniques are already changing my everyday life.

Michal is an amazing listener. She's been great at going with my flow of conversation. When I've used humor to deal with things, she has reflected that back and it makes for a very comfortable conversation. Her advice echoes things I've read about in psychology research, and has been very useful and appropriate in the situation I was in.
