I know I can trust Dr. Godfrey to keep it real. She will always tell me the truth, especially when she is challenging me to look at a part of myself which I would prefer to ignore. I am always open to hear her, though, because I know she comes from a place of love and genuinely wants me to be my best self.
Just wanted to text you to say thank you for being such an amazing therapist, and friend, for over 7 years. I can't imagine the weight of hearing other people's issues all day; but I'm thankful for you because you changed my life and saved me from a life of sadness, depression, and grief. I look over my life and see my growth and I know a huge part of it is because of you. So thank you and I love you.
Here's this little petite woman - who played soccer most of her life - I thought, "What could she possibly teach me about my football team?" All I can say now is, "Wow! I had no idea what a difference she would make in these boys as both players and young men." ~ DC, Head HS Football Coach For some moments in life, there are no words. Thank you, Dr. G.
Sometimes life can throw us some curves that can shake us to our foundation. When I recently experienced this, I was lucky enough to find Michael-Renee. With her excellent clinical skills and genuine compassion, we were able to address the problems and not just the symptoms. She helped alleviate my fear and utilize my strengths to help me grow as an individual. Anyone having a difficult time in their life would benefit from working with Michael.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for the gift God gave Dr. G. She was there for me when no one else was. She saved my life.
Dr. G. is my best friend! Here, in her office, is the safest place on Earth! ~ MBS All I can remember is her kind voice when I called her for the very first time. I was so lost and afraid. I didn't know what I was going to do. But, Dr. Michael-Renee listened. She listened to all my sorrow and all my pain and said she would help me get through it. I thank God every day for sending me to her.
Michael-Renee is an excellent counselor with a strong sense of integrity and dedication to her clients. I have been continually impressed by her passion for her work and her consultative approach. Her style is very hands on and she is extremely sensitive and honest in her therapy sessions. She is an active listener and encourages her clients to step beyond their comfort zone in an effort to grow and develop new coping mechanisms and processing techniques. I have found Michael-Renee to be a valuable resource and advocate in the therapy process.
I didn't know what an empath was until I met Dr. Godfrey. She doesn't just empathize; it's like she knows what I'm feeling without me ever saying a word. It's like she can see inside my soul and it's safe to be that vulnerable and open with her. ~ KB
Our experience in working with Michael-Renee has added something sorely lacking in our marriage; namely, hope for the resolution of the intimacy issues my wife and I struggle with. Michael-Renee has worked with us to confront and address the root of our issues, all the while affirming our faith and our marriage while holding us accountable for being vested in the counseling process. In an age where patients are often viewed as a source of revenue, Michael-Renee has never failed to support us during times of trial and triumphs. Her practice/ministry has blessed us greatly and we are confident that she will continue to touch the lives of many others in her work.
