I was having depression but did not know it. My G.P. referred me to Dr. Michaels. I was started on medicine and also learned some relaxation and mindfulness techniques. I feel like I am myself again. The staff at the Brien Center were also very kind.

I've worked with Dr Michaels a couple times over the years. Unfortunately I have not had good experiences with her. She seems more interested in herself and her reputation and thinking she knows everything instead of just listening. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone. I've worked with some great addition doctors that I wouldn't gladly recommend but definitely not Dr Michaels and as I'm reading the other reviews they seem biased or just not honest.

A Godsend to my family and community. That is the best way I can describe what Dr. Michaels has done for my family as well as our community. Over the course of many years she has helped us navigate the difficult transition from adolescence to young adult hood, persevering to help us uncover what we as parents, educators and a community have done or not done to contribute to our children's difficulties. This requires a level of open, honest and direct communication and caring that's simply rare in the world. If you are lucky enough to work with her, hold on to her!

Dr. Michaels is one of the nicest, most caring persons and MDs I have ever met. She was responsive to my condition and concerns; she offered clear, practical advice. She helped me define goals and the path to follow to recovery. I will continue to see her every year or so to bolster my recovery and to congratulate her for my success.

I've had depression on and off for years. Dr. Michaels listened to me during the first interview. She did not rush me and she was very kind. I'm grateful for the help I'm receiving at the Brien Center, and so relieved that I feel better. I would definitely recommend this doctor

DR. Jennifer Michaels was honestly the worst Doctor I have ever had appointments with. She was very uncaring and seemed uninterested, and frankly, was just plain mean. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone.
