“I consider Michal to be an extremely ethical therapist with good judgment. She does not shy away from difficult conversations and moves fluidly from present day issues while understanding the importance of developmental stages and attachment. Michal has a very pleasant and approachable manner. “
Eugenia Messner, Registered Psychotherapist
"Michal is a highly competent therapist. Her profound knowledge of human behaviour and her excellent therapeutic skills are matched by her warmth, genuine compassion and respect for her clients. She works creatively and collaboratively to help her clients to grow and to achieve their goals. As a former colleague of Michal’s, I am very familiar with her work and I recommend her without reservation."
Mary Cowper-Smith, MSW, RSW
"As a member of the same counselling team, I worked with Michal as co-leader in both children and parent groups, and consulted frequently with her about the families we shared working with. I found Michal to be a skilled and wise counsellor, and compassionate in her dealings with both clients and colleagues. She truly excels as an advocate for those going through troubled times."
David Abel, MSW, RSW
"I have clinically supervised Michal's work for four years in a community-based organization providing direct service to individuals with Developmental Disabilities, and to their family members. In some cases I attended meetings and provided support as Michal facilitated complex family situations. Michal was consistently open and responsive to the subjective experiences, aspirations and strengths of the people she supported. She paid particular attention to the personal stories people came with, and helped them to further uncover, cherish, and develop these narratives. I witnessed the individuals and families Michal served benefiting tremendously from her respectful service. Working with Michal has been a journey of personal and professional enrichment, nourished generously by laughter and insight."
