These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Michael Southerland. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Written on Feb 07, 2023 after therapy with Michael for 2 weeks

Michael is esy and comfortable to talk to. My son is enjoying his sessions after being really apprehensive about therapy. Thank you.

Work with me!
