Our Services

Our Approach

We specialize in working with individuals (including adolescents), couples and families to develop new pathways for approaching life and its difficulties. Changing the way we think and respond to life’s stuff. We work with you to discover those skills that have either been lost or not yet unleashed within.

Michael is pioneering work with Adolescents and families in the Restoration Therapy world and seeking ways to assist this population with Emotional Regulation. Through his 25+ years of working with adolescents and families he has discovered the great need to do work with adults, couples and families as whole. Young people are developing their world view from their experiences and relationships and if the folks around them are not healthy and equipped to support, the journey’s obstacles are harder to overcome. Whole Life Priorities, LLC seeks to help parents know and understand their own cycles, difficulties and how they relate to their children in turn to strengthen this ability in young people.

We explore every aspect of a person’s life from eating habits, exercise, sleep patterns and of course your Mental Wellness. All of these play a role in our total wellness and it is our belief at Whole Life Priorities, LLC that this is best achieved within the family unit (with respect that every family looks and is different).

We look forward to joining you on your journey “Total
Family Wellness!”


Effective 01/01/2020


Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.

This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.

We will make every effort to give you an accurate estimate on the costs for your treatment the fee per session is set and available to clients at the time of intake. However, every client and their needs differ, and the number of sessions will very according to client’s identified needs.  Some clients need ongoing support and others may be able to reach their therapeutic goals in a few sessions. We will address this in your initial intake and continue to evaluate treatment and costs as services are rendered. 

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
