"(My husband and I) went in to the Intensive couples session with no real expectations. Michael was amazing at getting real answers and responses out of my quiet husband, and to get me out of my overthinking patterns as well. I feel like he was able to really see our personalities and discover our patterns quickly and help us to navigate a better way to understand each other. I highly recommend the Intensive if you want to cover a lot of ground in 1 session."

"I feel like I made more progress in a couple of months, than I did in years of previous therapy."

"I feel like Michael was really able to help me address the underlying causes of my problem in addition to offering coping skills."
