Dr. Michael Koren has been my therapist for one year. Throughout our time, we've worked on dealing with anxiety, depression, feelings of low self-esteem, low confidence, and the sources of shame and worthlessness. I went on a journey to discover my self-worth and have come to a place where I feel like I deserve love just like anyone else. It involved working through childhood trauma and how it has played out in my life to this day. Mike has been with me through this journey, providing insight, wisdom and encouragement throughout. The work involved has been substantial and hard and Mike would let me know that I'm on the right track and would encourage me to keep going. He has been my supporter and has constantly challenged me to normalize my thinking and have faith in my understanding. This journey is just beginning, but I'm in a completely different space than I was a year ago. I am grateful to Mike for his compassion and have the motivation to keep moving forward.
Dr. Koren and Brighter Life Therapy have been an absolute joy to work with, and helped me significantly in navigating difficult relationships and engaging in guided and active problem solving to encourage a positive and optimistic, but realistic, mentality in the face of high expectations and a challenging work situation (a difficult graduate program). I highly recommend working with Mike and the team at Brighter Life. In-person and tele-therapy sessions are both convenient and easy to arrange via the online appointment scheduling system.
Regarding Dr. Koren personally, he clearly cares deeply about the health and well being of his patients, and he is excellent about providing outside perspective, delicately challenging and encouraging questioning of faulty assumption and negative mental habits, and providing ongoing support and guidance with a targeted goal of personal development and growth. He is respectful, thoughtful, caring, and empathetic, and I highly recommend working with him.
I really appreciate Mike’s thoughtful, empathetic listening and outside of the box thinking. He has been extremely helpful in improving my relationships with the people closest to me as well as in dealing with the stressors of daily life. I highly recommend him as a counselor.
I appreciate Dr. Koren's empathetic approach and thoughtful insights.
Mike is great. Very personable, compassionate, careful listener and a fountain of wise, timely feedback. Book him today for a brighter life tomorrow.
