The Process________________________

Michael MongnoMy therapy practice derives from self-work over my life journey. The synthesis of this life work, along with my extensive training in multiple therapeutic modalities, allows me to create insightful and emotionally corrective experiences with my clients. This results in greater cognitive understanding and emotional self awareness. It profoundly develops for couples an enhanced ability to live more freely out of a larger and more vital frame of existence, and thus experience a greater quality of life. 


Couples Clients Say________________________

We live in NYC. My wife and I went to Michael as newlyweds experiencing growing pains early in our marriage. We were seeking a marriage couples counselor who could guide us in learning more deeply about each other, and how to better communicate.

In his marriage counseling therapy Michael quickly observed that each of us had varied needs and speak divergent languages due to our personality types being appreciably different.

He taught us excellent tools to enhance communication, understanding and acceptance of one another. Through his relationship work we were able to understand one another and listen to each other at a much more inclusive level than before.

I have taken part in a other counseling for issues prior to this, so I'd say I have very good experience in evaluating a therapist. Michael is the best, top tier—a very experienced therapist in Manhattan.

My Approach ________________________

Relationship therapy and individual counseling (for married couples, partners, or new relationship couples) begins with a focus on the relationship we have with ourselves and then looks at how we extend to others. Our early upbringing creates the template for how we feel about ourselves, manage our emotions, and treat and relate to others. This forms the bedrock of our own style of relating and can mold us in very powerful ways. This applies to us all: all races, creeds, cultures and gender orientation—including, of course, LGBT couples.

In relationship counseling we find that our present issues arise from deficiencies in our capacity to create meaningful connections with others. Many of us have formed beliefs that are incomplete and we then think that another person will complete us. Working with me allows to you discover who you are in relationship, revealing your innate wholeness. This deeply transformational experience translates into every area of your life. Letting go of the persona that was created to cope in the world is powerful and freeing as we find that simply being ourselves is enough. We now bring all parts of ourselves into relationships with an ease and vitality to live a more genuine life.
