Working with couples is both challenging and rewarding! I enjoy working with couples because the problems they experience they must work together to solve. When the couples energy is guided through issues I find that they come up with solutions that are right for them and as a result, communication, intimacy and connection become better. I also enjoy working with couples long term as it is exciting to see the progress they make together! I am a trauma trained and competent therapist who has over ten years of experience working with families and couples who experience some complex struggles. I use a body based approach to help couples understand what is happening in their bodies and nervous systems that impact how they communicate with each other. I work with them to build empathy toward each other and change the language they use with each other. I look forward to working with you and to guide you on your journey!

Michael was great! He had great tools to help us navigate a difficult time in our lives when our work, wedding planning, and side projects all got too overwhelming.
Michael helped my husband & I immensely in just a few sessions. After 22 years of marriage, we had started to take each other for granted & each assumed the other was a mind reader. Michael helped us with simple techniques and easy, thoughtful ways to stop, breathe & be mindful of each other. We would recommend Michael in a heartbeat!
My husband and I both thought that Mike did a great job of understanding our concerns and getting back to us in a timely manner. He was laid back and knowledgeable, making our experience comfortable and helpful. Thanks Mike!
Michael has been fantastic. He is very intuitive and helpful with asking questions to lead to introspection. He also gives great ideas for things to focus on. After having not-so-great in-person counseling experiences, I was reluctant to try a virtual counselor. I’m really grateful to have been matched with Michael and highly recommend him and his work.
