Thank you for being nice and sharing your story! Michael really took the time to listen to what I had to say. He didn't judge me, but was more empathetic. He shared his own experience with me and really helped me feel better. Thank you so much :)
Fantastic listener! He expressed empathy, helped me understand my emotions better and helped me view the situation in another perspective. I went from being scared to being happy. Thank you so much :)
Listener was adamant about being on top of listening and providing concerns to helping me get through extra extra frustration (incurred by other listeners as well as life) and diligent about seeing things through, and thoroughly understanding. Couldnt recommend more.
a truly fantastic listener with all the qualities of humanity and understanding
