Questions fo you to Consider before pursuing Therapy

What do you think you would/could do it for and how important/valuable is it to you anyway?
Can you have or obtain something of value cheaply?
Do you intend to invest seriously into yourself?

After you have considered and reflected on these questions and  the information above I challenge you to  decide if therapy or Life Coaching represents an investment in yourself, your relationship, your family and your emotional helath and over all well-bein that you are ready to make. If so call me . In a sales and marketing meeting at Cincinnati Bell some years ago a rep questioned the presenter about customers affording/wanting some of the new technological devices and services available. His response, " People  always have, or will find the money for the things they want and value."  (Cars/Trucks;TV's & stereo systems; i phones; entertainment ;travel; food & drink; clothes; jewelry; etc.). How much is your well-being worth to you? If you need to use your insurance then, for your sake, please use it.

Insurance or Self Pay
I have cancelled all my contracts with health insurers/organizations. Self pay(you) are my only payor.Your privacy is assured. I do not make EMR (Electronic Medical Records) notes when we are in session.


  • Self pay eliminates the insurance limits/problems and puts you in control of your therapy as you should be.
  • Dr. Michael is, obviously, not a fan of insurance companies, prefers self pay from hard-working and serious clients, but understand if you must find a health provider who will accept your insurance. Thank you for considering consulting with me and good progress in your life journey wherever that takes you!
