Michael is a great person to talk with if your relationship with a significant other is going through a rough patch. While there are a lot of therapists out there, I feel like he is well-suited to understand and help you address your needs. While it’s not his job to solve your issues, he certainly provides guidance that can help you help yourself–and your partner.
I think the best part of our couples counseling sessions is that we’re really learning to recognize our own part in our squabbles and learning some great ways to get a grip and behave way better toward each other…. We are a lot closer and much happier, and I think I can speak for both of us that we’re feeling resentful toward each other a lot less frequently…. I’d say that couples therapy with Michael is saving our marriage.
I could write a 1,000,000 word essay on how wonderful Michael has been for me personally and how he has helped me transform the way i relate to myself, my family, and my friends but even that wouldn’t give you a glimpse on how great he really is. I started seeing him after a horrible breakup from an abusive partner, and now almost a year later I feel stronger and more confident then I ever have.
