"I just wanted to extend my sincerest appreciation to you again. I cannot tell you how much you have helped me and have made me realize who I really am and what I deserve. I leave our sessions with renewed hope and a calmness that I haven't been able to find on my own. Your kindness, warmth and generosity has made all the difference in my life and I cannot thank you enough. I feel so lucky to have met you and I look forward to all good things ahead!"
—Joy K., Executive Recruiter in Manhattan NYC

"Dr. Mongno is a fantastic therapist and, more than that, a blessing to us. When my wife and I first met him, we were going on 6 years together (not yet married) and had broken off an engagement at one point in our relationship. We loved each other very much, felt connected at the deepest levels, yet struggled with constant bickering, insecurity, and emotional flare-ups. Our inability to maintain consistent peace was exhausting and taking its toll on us. We continually revisited the same issues over and over and didn’t know how to get out of this loop and move forward. We finally took action to seek couples therapy. I found Dr. Mongno online, called on a Monday morning at 8 and explained we needed to see him that day and he made time for us that evening. That one call changed our life. Today, we are married, we celebrated our first wedding anniversary last week, and we have a 2 month old baby boy."

"After several months of searching for the right marriage counselor, my husband and I were finally blessed to have crossed paths with Dr. Michael Mongno. While in the midst of dealing with several life changes and challenges in our marriage, our filters became clogged. We lost our ability to communicate, listen, and truly understand each other. The fighting continued and before we knew it, our lives were headed in different directions. We scheduled an appointment with Dr. Mongno in desperate need of help. I cannot express the magnitude of insightfulness Dr. Mongno displayed. He gracefully listened to both sides of our stories and unconditionally demonstrated empathy. He understood each of us. He genuinely cared for us and displayed great concern for our situation. We knew in our first session that Dr. Mongno genuinely wanted to help us- something that is rare to find in today's world.
Through Dr. Mongno's sessions, we learned to really listen to each other without judgment. He taught us empathy, something really hard to provide when you don't believe in your partner's point of view. He softly brought all of our resentments to the surface and worked on each issue in the most sensitive manner. Most importantly, Dr. Mongno worked passionately to help my husband and I find our core happiness. I write this review for any married couple that is struggling, frustrated, and angry at their current situation. We maintain a heightened awareness in how we communicate and respect each other."
"Dr. Mongno's unique and rare gift of being totally present in our sessions allows him to pick up on the subtle nuances of my inner workings that would have otherwise been missed. He is able to bring my awareness around to deep insights and to seeing my own patterns and blind spots. His work with me has been vital to my growth, the improvement of my family relationships, and even the deepening of my spiritual practice."
—Sandy S., Kripalu Yoga Teacher
"I've made incredible progress since I began seeing Michael. The unique combination of psychological and spiritual counseling Michael offers has helped me integrate all the tools needed to achieve peace and balance in my busy life. Working at my growing edge, I've improved my relationships in an honest way while embracing vulnerability and integrating the child and woman within me. I would, and do, recommend him to anyone ready to get real."

"You've help me to create a life more wonderful than I could have imagined and you are one of the things I am most thankful for and have made such a difference in my life. You're the best, the best!"
—Eloise H., Tutor/Real Estate Investor
"Thanks, Dr. Mike, for the wonderful session. I really felt tremendously safe and supported and you did such a wonderful job explaining "Me" to my girlfriend; I could not have asked for a better therapist! I just wanted to let you know that I love you and can only hope that I will serve and help people in my life half as good as you do!"
—Norman K., Verizon Line Supervisor
"Michael...I just wanted to share with you that I finally told him 'I love you'. I feel very proud for giving myself permission to be so vulnerable and for revealing something so intimate and important to me. Thanks so much for ALL your support, guidance and encouragement in this process."
—Dominique R., Art Curator
"Dr. Mongno has been able to provide me with specific tools for every single problem I've come in with. He is able to see into the essence of things and bring situations that seem overwhelming to a much simpler and more manageable place for me. Moreover, I now do this more consistently for myself. He is a rarity among therapists.
In one session with me and my partner Michael was gently able to bring us present with ourselves. Then with impressive clarity, he proceeded to guide us in a healthy, heartfelt exchange. This created a opening for our relationship and a template for our communication that has lasted for almost two years. Needless to say we are deeply grateful to him and he has our full endorsement"
