Know Your Therapist
Dr. Michael is a Doctor of Human Sexuality, holding both a Ph.D. in human sexuality and a Master of Arts in clinical counseling psychology. He specializes in all matters of sexuality, intimacy, and relationship counseling. Surprisingly, there are at most only a couple of thousand professionally trained and board-certified sexologists in the entire world, with the vast majority of them working in a multitude of disciplines outside of the counseling field. As for the handful of sexologists specializing in sex therapy and relationship counseling, even fewer in number are the tiny minority of us possessing both an advanced counseling psychology degree and an advanced sexological degree. Apparently, we "full pedigree" counselor-sexologists are spread rather sparsely around the planet!
Dr. Michael is a practicing clinician, sex researcher, graduate school professor of human sexuality and counseling psychology, author and expert in the respective fields of sexology and relationship counseling. His therapeutic focus is always results-oriented and applicable to everyday living in the here and now. Dr. Michael's candid one-of-a-kind thought provoking style teaches and assists clients to recognize and reframe their thinking errors and cognitive distortions of perception.
Specializing as an REBT clinician, Dr. Michael utilizes only the most effective and proven approaches to counseling. From 1991-95, Dr. Michael perfected his REBT clinical skills in his Manhattan private practice. During this same period he was also a student and counseling client of the eminent sexologist, world renowned psychologist, and acknowledged "father" of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, the late Dr. Albert Ellis. As a care giver today, Dr. Michael continues to embrace the philosophy of empowering his clients to consciously live at cause in their life so as to bring about more of what is wanted and less of what is not.
Nothing replaces a face-to-face visit with your doctor. While it would be ideal to meet together in Dr. Michael's office, for anyone outside of Hawai'i, this could prove expensive and impractical. If you're local or planning on visiting the Hawaiian Islands, by all means call to make an office appointment. For everyone else, be assured Dr. Michael’s nearly three decades of work by telephone and over 15 years online reflect every bit as much of the same care, concern, and effectiveness as his face-to-face consultations.
When it comes to such important matters as your personal
sexuality and intimate relationships, it’s essential to know that you’re
working with an accomplished, skilled, and seasoned clinician you can trust.
Whether you seek telephone counseling or online consultations individually
or as a couple, Dr. Michael will assist you in a safe, relaxed and open
environment. You can depend on receiving competent, confidential care and
above all, informed and effective results-oriented treatment.
About Dr. Michael’s Online Care Services
Many sexual concerns are caused by inaccurate information or incomplete knowledge and understanding. And many relationship troubles are caused by the need for more effective communicating, relating, and conflict resolving skills. Concerns and challenges such as these and many others can often be quickly alleviated through online care consultations with Dr. Michael.
We are indeed fortunate to have today’s modern communication technologies—particularly smartphone and ubiquitous online accessibility—literally at our fingertips towards helping to alleviate anxiety, concerns, and hurts. Nonetheless, technology has its limits. So we are clear:
Online consultations are not—nor are they ever meant to be—
a substitute for live person-to-person therapy
via in office or telephone sessions.
That said, online consultations do provide a level of assistance to those not necessarily seeking counseling, yet still struggling with issues interfering with their overall quality of life both sexually and non-sexually. Access to complete, accurate, sex and pleasure positive information is imperative for everyone so we may each make our own best informed choices regarding matters of sexual health and relationship happiness. Easily accessing affordable and individually tailored online guidance from a professionally trained and well-seasoned sexologist you can trust is an extremely effective, practical, and speedy way to increase knowledge and gain personal empowerment that helps you to make the very best choices possible for yourself.
This service provides answers to your most personal questions from a leading sexologist, confidentially, in the privacy of your own home, at your convenience, and at reasonable rates. While no service of this kind can or is meant to replace individual sex therapy or medical treatment, for many concerns a simple one time consultation is sufficient. Dr. Michael personally tailors knowledgeable information into a thorough educational response designed to help you to have more of what you want and less of what you don’t. And all in ways that respect your own personal value system.
Many people find online communications to be a non-threatening and least embarrassing way to discuss their sexual and marital concerns. And while secondary to in person or telephone consultations, online communications with a trained professional such as Dr. Michael, can still provide you with a safe and valuable resource that you know can be trusted to be competent, caring, confidential and most importantly accurate and effective.
