Introduction: Life is a rather fascinating journey! I’m grateful that I do not know anybody who’s walked through it in a straight line. Sometimes the journey is light and full of joy, other times painful and full of weight. While every person is unique and no two people’s experiences identical, when we explore ourselves deeply, we discover many similarities and a good dose of common humanity. And the deeper we explore, the juicier the discoveries! You’re reading this page. I’ll assume you want more or less of something. You want to facilitate a shift in yourself, relationship, family or group. You’ve reached the point of inviting another voice or perspective to facilitate the shift. Good for you! Our work together will be guided collectively. You will be in charge, I’ll offer direction. When you are ready to “leap forward,” I will stand with you and make sure you have something that feels like a net, but I will most certainly let you leap and support your need to be healthy and well.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Michael is an insightful, authentic, and educated counselor who helps his clients with a thoughtful approach. During couples counseling with my significant other, I appreciated Michael's ability to get to the root of the recurring issues, and then to guide us toward a healthier path. His homework assignments were designed to provide reflection and growth, which provided opportunities to learn and heal.

We are only 2 sessions in and I love each and every session. It is really helping our relationship. He tells it how it is and doesn’t sugar coat anything.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

What an incredible counselor, teacher, human being. We cannot begin to speak highly enough about Micheal and the work he has done with us. We were literally on the verge of divorce and complete failure in our lives and within one session Michael was able to pull us back from the edge. Every session since has only strengthened our relationship and ourselves as individuals. Even at complete impasses, which we were sure would be the end of us, and which we felt completely unable to resolve, he instantly found the right words, the right explanations, the exact right methods to expose the true problem and provide a solution that was the exact correct fit for both of us. He is direct, confident, and compassionate. He does not belittle or make anyone feel like a failure, but he also does not pull punches, and gets right to the heart of the matter in an almost a magical way. There is no finer professional you will find, at any cost, we assure you.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Sessions with Michael have been nothing short of amazing. By that, I mean that during each session I am truly amazed by the insights that emerge and the authenticity that Michael brings to his work. From the first session to my most recent, he’s shown compassion. I also feel that he is really listening to me, all of this in a very natural way, never robotic. Down-to-earth is another term I’d use to describe him, with a tasteful touch of humor. Time in session with Michael is time and money well spent.

I have only had 2 sessions with Michael but I feel confident that I will make progress. He is kind, insightful, honest and professional. He brought to light many things in our short time working together. I will continue our journey together to continue to heal parts of me that feel broken. Thank you

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Sliding scale of $80-$140 based on your own discernment of need. I do not accept insurance.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Generally we will utilize the bulk of our first session in understanding what your strengths, obstacles and goals are. We will take a look at how you got to where you are now, where you want to go next and create a plan to move forward.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied social work at the University of Wisconsin. I have been a Reiki Teaching Master since 1993.
