Ms Collier is doing a wonderful job helping our daughter deal with difficult issues. We are very grateful for her hard work.
She is a great listener and really gets you thinking.
I really feel comfortable with her although it hasn’t been awhile. It was easy for me to open up to her.
She is amazing!
Michal is a truly wonderful counselor! She asks focused questions and really listens to me. She’s empathetic and engaged, yet proactive and solution- oriented. I would highly recommend her!
Ms. Collier is a wonderful counselor. She is very knowledgeable and understanding. She is a very good listener and I look forward to continuing my sessions with her.
I love Michal! She is the 11th therapist I have tried therapy with and I was very close to giving up, but 10 minutes into the first session I already knew she is the right one. I finish every session with her happy and high for a few hours, and I feel the progress also without the painful digging in the past and uncomfortable topics. The talks with her are so pleasant and her smile is contagious. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to do therapy with her.
I really appreciate her light-hearted and supportive approach. I felt comfortable sharing my thoughts starting with our first session...even when I think something is embarrassing I never feel uncomfortable sharing. I feel like I am in a much better and healthier headspace now than I was before I started talking with Michal. Thank you so much Michal!!!!
I am so content, and blessed to have been paired with Michal as my counsellor.
I find she is compassionate, and intuitive to what needs to be addressed. She knows exactly how to pin point certain areas in your life that you need to focus on. I have been with her for a month now, and I feel that I am making a lot of progress in her presence. She is very encouraging, she knows how to build you up, so that you may be the best person you can be. I appreciate her worksheets, she will always try to give you some homework of reflection. I would recommend Michal 100%. I am excited to see what more I will discover about myself, with the guidance from Michal.
Michal is very intuitive and attentive. She listens to me while pushing me to really hear myself. I've come to learn many truths about who I am and the things I've experienced with her guidance. I am grateful to have been connected with her.
Michal makes me feel heard. I feel safe to be honest and I also feel she allows space for me to explore. Big fan so far.
She’s really down to earth and I don’t feel like I’m being judged . She’s really easy to talk to and never brings up my awkward moments
No issue has ever been too deep, complex, or embarrassing for us to discuss, and we never run out of things to talk about! Michal has a funny way of saying what's on *my* mind before I know how to express what's in it. She knows how to walk me through my issues and has been great about checking up on me at each of our sessions. She is friendly and charming and easy to get along with. I feel like a much better and happier person thanks to everything she has taught me. I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to work with her.
I’ve only had a few sessions with Michal, however they’ve been quite helpful. Quite casual, not stuffy and clinical at all. I look forward to our sessions.
Thanks for your support so far.
I can already tell she actually cares!
She has truly been an inspiration to my daughter her self esteem has started rising. She is communicating more at open and being more open to suggestions from her parents. She’s more open now about what goes on at school and in her life. Again thank you for helping her feel confident in expressing herself more and not be afraid of what people will say.
Michal was great. She felt out my difficulties and helped me to work on processes which enabled me to rebuild my relationship with my partner.
She is such a great part of my week, already helping me so much she has given me tools to overcome my anxiety. Can't recommend her enough!
I’ve only had one session, but so far, my experience has been excellent. I feel listened to and understood.
Michal is very concerned and able to reassure me through my doubts and despair. Supportive and understanding.
She's very supportive especially in times of emotional turmoil and when you feel like you doing have anyone to talk to. I had so many moments where it felt like no where and somehow she will have the right things to say or ask that can redirect the situation in a positive light. Thanks so much and really appreciate the care I got.
In only one month of therapy with Michal, I was able to discover a lot of aspects of myself. She was skillful in as asking all the right questions and targeting the core issues and problems.
The video sessions were very comforting, I felt connected immediately and the conversations were well rounded, focused and efficient. We managed to cover all my main concerns.
Moreover, Michal provided me with extra material, tools and techniques to rely on when I am experiencing difficulties and those techniques are already changing my everyday life.
I feel very fortunate that I had the chance to work with Michal.
Michal is an amazing listener. She's been great at going with my flow of conversation. When I've used humor to deal with things, she has reflected that back and it makes for a very comfortable conversation. Her advice echoes things I've read about in psychology research, and has been very useful and appropriate in the situation I was in.
Michal is a wonderful therapist. She has a delightful sense of humor and it is easy to see that she cares deeply. She has hit the nail on the head with the issues that I am facing and we are working on correcting my mindset to help me become a better person. I am extremely thankful for that.
Michal has been very supportive. Her techniques are very handy and have really helped me switch my negative thoughts to positive ones. Looking forward to learning more from her to become a better version of myself. Thank you Michal.
Michal is amazing, patient and provides tips and gently pushes you and challenges. Exactly what you need to move through.
I just started my session with her, now its been 2 weeks probably. So far I feel very good with her. She is a wonderful listener and a beautiful human inside. I love her.
Michal is amazing! She listens, gives great feedback & even checks in between our weekly session. I love that she offers a holistic approach to healing. I would highly recommend her!
