Some testimonials:

“Michael has amazing insight. His ability to see right through to the core of issues makes his work stand out. He is able to create insight and change by seeing the heart of the issue intuitively. It’s no wonder his clients love him so, the results and relationships he build speak volumes.” – Charlie King, Bainbridge Island, WA

“Mike is one of the most authentic, down to earth people I have ever known. Couple that with his amazing intuitive abilities and that makes him one of the most skilled counselors I have ever had the joy of working with. Mike’s listening of me has helped facilitate some of my more ground-breaking emotional work not only in my personal life, but my professional life as well.

The men’s group that Mike hosts builds on his skills in the one-on-one counseling arena and takes it to the next level. His guidance puts the group into the tough questions that men face in today’s world, and gets it to a place of power. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty and take on the most confronting issues around men today.”  – T. F., Golden, CO

“The first time Mike and I spoke it was like remembering an old friend.  I knew we had never met before but I still felt so familiar that it was comfortable to be vulnerable.  Mike is a straight shooter.  With Mike the Truth is always in the room, and that is what I love about him.  He gets this look in his eye and I know there is a deep question coming or a story or something where he calls me out on my shit!  Which is what I love.

“In a world filled with advertising and people put a face-on or a mask, Mike is a breath of fresh air.  There is no pretending or having to be someone you’re not.  You know where you stand with Mike.  He calls like he sees it and he isn’t afraid to let you know, and that kind of vulnerable sharing is rare.

“I always feel like the difference between a therapist and a coach is that a coach jumps off the cliff with you.  Mike is always there and reminding me of the good and the bad (and sometimes the ugly).  I always look forward to when we connect – no matter what kind of day I’m having, it is always better after Mike.”    – Pete O., Seattle, WA

“Mike Gathers is a man that brings his full effort to his own personal expansion and to the growth of the people in his life. I got to see this first hand for four days at a men’s retreat. Mike verbally dedicated himself to going deeper into his life than any man at the retreat and succeeded. His openness was contagious and helped me realize the strength of a father figure. I’m grateful to have shared stories, presence, and love with this man.”  – Scott S., Cleveland, OH

“Mike has been a great mentor and guide in my personal and professional life. I would recommend him any day.”  – A.B., Westminster, CO
