I was referred to Michael Crane and Broadview Counseling at a pivotal time in my life. To say I was lost and uncertain is an understatement. I needed help for my teenage daughter, but no one was able to help me. No one saw the distress she was in. No one saw what I saw. No one understood what my fears were. With one brief phone call, Michael Crane understood, and he knew what to do. He heard the urgency in my voice and immediately got a ball rolling for my daughter that provided an evaluation, a plan, and counseling. This led to advocacy at her school, motivation to make changes, and guidance for us as parents on how to support her.
He also recommended others in his practice who could help my husband and I with parenting strategies and an additional therapist for my other child to talk to. My struggles were not just centered around my daughter, we were a family in crisis. But finally, with this amazing team, there was hope.
Most therapists say one thing, but there is little follow through, or they are too busy. Not here. If you are seeking help for your child, whether to dig deeper to uncover something underlying that you’ve been concerned about or counseling to get your child and/or your family back on track, you can be assured you’re in the right place.
It is very difficult to find someone who can apply great knowledge and expertise, compassion, gently be open and direct without intimidation, and then equally follow through successfully on all with care, respect, and professionalism. I don’t know how he does it, but Michael Crane figured it out.
We will forever look back and say it was life changing to walk through Broadview’s doors. We have such gratitude for everything this practice has done for our daughter and our entire family.
Mike I wanted to tell you how much your professionalism, flexibility, and easy-manor with children has helped both of my boys. Not only did you meet the mental health needs of my oldest son in a time when he was most vulnerable, but you made him comfortable and safe-which is not easy to do with a teenage boy. You helped him re-gain his confidence and he is now able to ask for help when he needs it. As for my younger son, I can’t say enough about how your academic testing has helped him get the assistance he needs with his learning. The pandemic allowed me to see where his actual deficits were and without question your assessment and made me feel validated in knowing my child needed immediate help. Without your educational testing and reports, I would have remained on the hamster wheel of red tape that is unfortunately the reality our special education system.
Thank you form the bottom of my heart.
