By cultivating creative, collaborative communication conversations we bring more effectiveness to our relational exchanges.

Come to me if you want to bring greater skillfulness with you to the realms of love, intimacy, relationships, sexuality and living life with passionate purpose.

I am intuitive, holistic and integrative in my therapeutic approach as a holistic couples therapist, applying the method that best serves you, your needs and goals. I adapt to form interventions that are responsive to who you are and what you bring in.

I work pragmatically, with somatic awareness and a depth psychological perspective, to help you emotionally balance, deepen insight and become more effective interpersonally.

Generational Listening

Curious about how intergenerational transmissions pass down to us through time?

Understand the power of generational listening to help you explore your family stories and develop a deeper understanding of your inherited lineage. Learn how to access your generational root stories for healing, growth, and integration.

By understanding our family history we can release negative emotions and inherited generational trauma to embrace the wisdom of past generations.

“Michael is a very special therapist. I am so lucky to have found him. Kind, funny, smart, he has been a deeply important part of my healing journey. I don’t know how I would have been able to navigate some of the toughest times of my life without him.”


Michael is an expert in his field. In a short time, he has helped my marriage go from despair to hopeful. Over the coarse of a long term marriage my husband and I had drifted apart and found ourselves arguing more than talking. Michael has helped us find our way back to each other with his incredible intuitiveness. I credit Michael for bring laugher and love back into our home.
