Michael Appiah - M.S.W./R.S.W

In my professional experience, men seek support for two reasons:

1.) To move them further away from pain.

2.) To bring them closer to pleasure.

Given the world’s expectations of people, you likely have been told to hide your feelings, not openly share your struggles, or toughen up and let things that bother you slide.

The good news is you don’t have to face these issues alone.

Imagine confronting any life problem you run into and resolving it with confidence.

Imagine being 100% certain that you can handle any stress or setback life throws at you.

Hi, I’m Michael and I'm a registered social worker.

In the past decade, I have had extensive experience working specifically with men
experiencing anger management issues, conflict in relationships, and struggling with anxiety/confidence in a wide variety of settings.

My goal is to develop a deep understanding of who you are, build your trust through emotionally candid conversations, and develop actionable solutions to achieve your goals.
