About Me

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!

Just getting started with Michael and we’re very happy with his style of therapy and encouraging us to listen to our bodies and work through our emotions.

Written by P.A. on Aug 10, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Mike was very responsive and candid. Did not give me fluff and told it like it is. Was available to me when stress levels were high even on a Sunday or Saturday evening. His advice was extremely helpful and felt comfortable with his knowledge and guidance.

Michael is great at being patient while digging into the issues that need to be dealt with. Each thing he says is well thought out and on point. He is an amazing human and therapist.

Thank you

Written by B.R. on Jun 02, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I like that Michael allows me to talk. To vent out how I feel and understands without bias. His homework has actually helped me a lot with how I view on how to start the process of healing.

Michael has been an extremely positive part of our lives. Offers sound advice and extremely constructive and useful tools for us to navigate this crazy world

Written by S.A. on Mar 22, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

He listens to both of us it is, and has a lot of knowledge.

Written by M.E. on Jan 27, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

This guy is seriously awesome. He just gets it. I appreciate the sincerity he brings to each session and even in his messages. He understands the desire to repair and heal. I cant wait to work with him more, rather than be something as a couple or as an individual. He really gets it and doesn't beat around the bush. He is everything I needed. Thank you!

Written by S.H. on Jan 17, 2022 after therapy with Michael for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Mike is wonderful at responding quickly with thoughtful advice. We have had an excellent experience working with him on improving our marriage concerns.

Written by C.L. on Dec 27, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Michael has a lot of knowledge around navigating relationship issues and identifies ways to improve and assist in relating to each other. We have been working with him for a brief period of time and so far I have been very very pleased

Written by F.E. on Nov 15, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Mike has helped my husband and I get a clear perspective on the path we’ve taken, are taking and the path we are about to take. He brought so much clarity and knowledge that we never would have thought about on our own. He’s very knowledgeable on his work and shows a lot of empathy. I would recommend him to couples or individuals anytime!

Written by V.A. on Sep 13, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

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.

Written by M.I. on Jul 14, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

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!

Written by A.D. on Jun 06, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

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!

Written by R.A. on Jun 03, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

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.

Work with me!
