"Michael Soderstrom. So many good things to say about him. Michael is not just my therapist, he is my friend. He is so easy to get along with, and you feel like you can tell him anything, OCD related or not. When you go to see him, you feel like you've known him forever, telling him what's new in your life and laughing over funny things that have happened recently. Now, his specialty is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and when I say specialty, I mean he is the best of the best. I've never met anyone better. He makes you feel like you are not alone in your fight with OCD, telling you stories of other clients' struggles and how they managed to overcome them, making you feel like you can do it as well. The OCD in my life is now almost nonexistent- and that is all thanks to him, his knowledge, and his superb support and confidence that he gives you. I truly recommend him to anyone with any form of OCD. THANK YOU MR. S! "

"I have had OCD for most of my life. I have been to various therapists to try and deal with this anxiety disorder, and I find that Michael is the most knowledgeable and capable person I have seen to magage living with OCD. I found Michael during a time when it really was causing me distress. He has helped me tremendously during the last year that i have been in therapy with him. He is very compassionate, patient, and friendly. He understands how OCD affects my life and helps me in managing and reducing the symptoms of anxiety that this disorder causes. He is extremely knowledgeable about OCD and shares and uses that knowledge to help me create a structured and focused plan of combating this disorder. I would recommend him to anyone who suffers from OCD or other anxiety disorders."
