About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor with 3 years of experience working in community mental health agencies. Prior to working as a licensed mental health counselor, I worked for 2 years in DCF as a child safety case manager which involved working with abused/neglected children who have been removed from their families by the state. I also have worked for 3 years in residential and outpatient substance abuse facilities in various roles, including mental health technician, access center counselor, and residential counselor. I have worked with clients suffering from severe symptoms of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, ADHD, anger, guilt, relationship difficulties, parenting problems, and family issues. I have also treated clients who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional trauma.

It is a well-established psychological principle that the way we feel, emotionally, arises from the way we think. Our feelings come from our thinking. I can help you learn the A B C's of stress management and minimize dysfunctional feelings.

Most people did not plan on attending therapy and it can be a hard choice to start counseling services. However, I am here for you to make it easier to reach your goals while providing a supportive and comfortable environment for you to discuss your inner feelings and thoughts.

I look forward to meeting with you!

Michael has helped my tremendously with my anxiety issues. He's very knowledgeable about the practice of mindfulness meditation (although he doesn't call it that), which is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. :)

I’ve been working with Michael for a few months now. He’s given me so many great tools to understand my anxiety and build better daily habits of mindfulness. He’s a great listener and really gets to understand you.

Michael gives wonderful aid in how to deal with negative thoughts and working through them as they arise. In just a short period of time I’ve been given a lot to think about, as well as tangible exercises to help me through anxiety, stress and hopelessness. Thank you Michael!
