05/12/13 5 5 5 5 I have been visiting Mike off and on for over a year now. The man has an absolutely amazing ability to penetrate to the core of you and what your issue is. I like that he doesn't want to keep you in a revolving door of appointments and wants to get you on your feet as soon as you can. I have been to others, Mike is A+.  Respond

27/02/13 5 5 5 5 Our family has received counsel from Dr. Michael Maniacci for over 15 years during various crises or just rough patches. I too find it difficult to believe that anyone would characterize him "abusive" in any way. As for our family, he has been absolutely amazing in every way you would expect and our experience, unfortunately, involved seeing a few psychiatrists and counseling programs. But NEVER did I find with others the compassionate and competent help that we have always received from Mike!  Respond

19/06/12 5 5 5 5 In our family we have seen a lot of psychologists. A lot. Never has one been so helpful and especially so FAST. Mike's goal is to get you successfully OUT of his office! He doesn't rush you out but he's just so darn good as lasering your issues and getting you on the road to actually solving the problem. He helped two of my sons tremendously, and thus us parents as well - he was very direct in teaching the two of us different strategies. If you're open to change and your goal is to truly to fix the problem and not just vent, I highly, highly, highly recommend him.

13/03/12 5 5 5 5 I'm not sure why anyone would post a review saying Mike Maniacci is abusive: that is absurd. He is an excellent psychotherapist. I attended his sessions for about 6 months and was helped through an extremely difficult time. He offers concrete advice, not abstract principles. I would recommend him to anyone.  Respond

04/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Maniacci is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He is one of the best Alderian psychologists in Chicago. I have used him personally and he helped me tremendously in getting through a tough time, growing a person and expanding my life to new horizons. I have recommended him to over a dozen people who have used him. They also give him high marks. Dr. Maniacci also speaks often in community. I have read the post surveys - he again repeatedly gets high marks.  Respond
