A client review: This particular client’s Relationship was on the rocks. Comments like this one fuels me to continue doing what I love.
Michael is terrific; not only he listens and identifies problems, but unlike other therapists, he will make specific suggestions that his patients can use to address specific situations in their lives. Michael can provide the tools to help resolve conflicts and remedy situations that appear to be insurmountable! I recommend his services with no hesitation.
I don’t often get men willing and wanting to work on their marriage. This particular client was special in the sense that he wanted to make his marriage work even though his wife did not attend any sessions. I gave him the tools that he needed to navigate in his marriage and with his children.
No one said relationships are easy. However, if you are willing to put in the work the outcome can be very rewarding.
Stop the stigmatism in recovery. Think to be Different ™
Ask for help, find your life balance?
24 million Americans who are currently using illicit drugs and all family members and friends who are affected by this epidemic.
I believe this will inspire individuals suffering with addiction to seek treatment?
This video will help them understand that they are not the only ones suffering from this dilemma and that seeking help is not a sign of weakness. To admit an individual has a problem is great sign of a person’s inner strength and willingness to resist judgment.
How does this video work to end the stigma surrounding addiction?
It inspires those who have a drug dependency to find the courage to stand up for themselves, to take a different path, and not let illicit drug use of their past dictate their true character or their future.
What inspired me to create this video?
After 15 years of being involved in the drug/alcohol treatment community I have heard and witnessed thousands and thousands of individuals that never reached out for help for fear of being embarrassed, shamed and judged by their friends, families, and peers. These stories inspired me to write my book, “When Nobody’s Home,” which is meant to inspire those who suffer from addiction to look for solutions to the problem. My hope is to impact those who believe they are crippled by their own insecurities that addiction can be conquered and defined by their self-worth.
This book is published to expressly create a resource that can be used by people in the helping professions—by Counselors, Social Workers, Deputy Probation Officers, and Educators—so that more people in recovery from addiction get both clean and free and stay that way! When Nobody’s Home will help those who suffer from addiction, childhood trauma and are fatherless children.
