I have only had a few sessions and limited communication with Michelle Gilio so far, but she seems genuinely focused on figuring out exactly what I want out of this experience - which entails helping me refine my own, frequently blurry, reasons. This is EXTREMELY helpful. I feel confident together we will make much faster, more effective progress untangling my thoughts and motivations than I could alone.

We have only had one session but she is the first of 4 therapist to take the time to actually introduce herself and explain a bit about her background. To me this was a huge relief because it's hard to express yourself to someone who never introduces themselves. She already gave me so much to think about in just one session, I'm excited to see where this journey goes.
