Michael is personable, knowledgeable and has helped me get more committed than ever to my goals.Oct 10, 2016Verified
Therapist came 25 min late to my son's therapy appointment. Offered to lower the fee by 25%. Then said he'd give us a "meditation" for $15. When I received it and played it, it was at most about 3-5 min long. I was fuming because we have bought meditation CDs for $15 and have about 30-40 min of meditation. Initially we wanted to go to an office of his close to where my son needed to be on a day when he had an afternoon free before an evening obligation. The person didn't want us to come that day and suggested a different day in a location further away than where we needed to be afterwards. We wound up being late to that appointment afterwards and my son was very upset. Interestingly when we initially spoke on the phone, the therapist suggested vitamins which he was conveniently selling - Shaklee (good products, but not something we needed or were looking for at that time). He mentioned it again during my son's session, and I had to again state that we had health and wellness already covered for my son. It wasn't even the money that makes me irate...but the time wasted on accommodating the person, Rather than the therapist trying to accommodate us as a new client/patient/customer, he was seemingly more interested in his own comfort and goings on than performing his arranged therapy with my son. I don't think we shall be going back.Jan 31, 2016VerifiedMichael R.'s reply
Dear Beatrice: I just wanted to address some of your complaints. I apologize for keeping you waiting but I mistakenly had it down in my calendar for 30 minutes later than you did. The recording I sent you was 15 min long which is the proper length for that process. In case there was a glitch in the way you uploaded it, I have sent you a replacement copy as well as another program as an apology for any difficulty you may have had. You had filled out a form for me saying that you were interested in hearing natural solutions to problems and that is why I mentioned a particular formulatation that Shaklee makes that I, and my team of wellness experts have had good results with forthe problem you listed. It was a suggestion so you would have an option to address the problem in different ways.

I started seeing Michael around two years ago. Michael is a very warm, patient and kind person. As a therapist, Michael has been able to facilitate the healing as well as growth process for me like no other therapist was able to. I have been in regression sessions as well as talk therapy with Michael and I feel like I am in a different place of seeing the world as well as being able to do the work that takes life times to do. I am very grateful to Micheal in my process of healing and understanding myself as well as relationships around me.Sep 1, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We discuss the problem we are looking to heal or behavior you are looking to change, or the spiritual advancement you are looking to achieve. I answer any questions, then I pick an appropriate process to achieve the results wanted. Before the session ends, I gave my clients a few simple things to do at home to build on what we have achieved. Talking and information are fine, but I make sure you have a direct experience in every session because personal experiences are what allows for the fastest and most permanent changes.
