“I believe I got more out of Michael’s videos and coaching than I got from years of professional counseling. It is very comforting talking to him because it is like talking to a very knowledgeable, long-time, close friend. I have more hope for the future after talking to Michael, and I would recommend his coaching."

“I felt that Michael really, actively listened and understood what I was saying during our time together. His responses helped me to see a potential bigger picture than what I could envision on my own. Michael’s expertise was very helpful, his calm demeanor made me feel hopeful, and I would recommend that others going through the withdrawal and healing situation contact him.”

Michael’s work provides valuable ideas about that side of the process, and I would recommend his coaching to others.”

I was dutifully sitting in summer classes trying to graduate on time and near the top of my class, when suddenly I was overtaken by a storm of strange symptoms.
