About Me

I am a positive, nurturing and supportive therapist who believes that seeking to make change is one of the greatest demonstrations of courage and strength an individual can make. The process of truly exploring yourself, your relationships and circumstances in your life can be extremely difficult and intimidating, and I offer a safe and comfortable environment that will allow you to begin that journey.
My focus begins with helping you identify the strengths and positive attributes you already possess and which will carry you along throughout the process. Then, together, we will work towards not only identifying the changes you would like to make, but the skills needed in order to be able to do so. Much of our work will be to develop an increased sense of self-awareness and an increased ability to live less impulsively and with more intention and ease.
I am very excited to meet you and to help you make the changes that will lead you to a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

He is very caring and is able to focus on me to understand what I need to gain a better understanding of myself and my concerns.

Michael is a fantastic counselor. He’s very insightful, always has answers for my many questions. I’ve gained so much from my meetings with him.

I’ve never utilized an online counseling service before, but Michael has made it an easy transition and has been understanding throughout the learning process. I have a very busy lifestyle and Michael’s flexibility has been beyond helpful. He’s also helped me point out things about my issues that I haven’t noticed myself before after all these years. He’s such a pleasure to talk to, I would highly recommend Michael to everyone.

Michael has been my first experience with a therapist. Though I'm new and still getting used to things, Michael has been very calm, approachable and accessible with helping me narrow down my thoughts and emotions.

Michael has been key in helping through my negative self-talk and thoughts when many other resources have failed to do so. His advice on trying out different methods to slowly break me out of subconscious flow of negative thoughts has been dramatically successful. He is an astute listener and helps me understand my problems into actionable categories or subjects. It has been transformative to feel more in control of my thoughts vs feeling like they were controlling me. I would definitely recommend Michael to others.

Mike has been great in always conversing and answering my emails quickly. He creates time for face to face if he doesn’t show the availability, and truly cares. He remembers the things I say because he’ll bring it up in other conversations. I’m thankful to have been matched with him!

I have had multiple therapists throughout my life, and never have I felt more confident in someone. Mike has a great philosophy and mindset on how mental health works. He hears what you're saying and, more than that, understands and unveils what's beneath your words. He is able to see the situation(s) clearly, especially when I cannot, and helps me to organize my overwhelming thoughts that make them seem manageable. He is encouraging and supportive- I never feel judged. AND he doesn't just listen, he offers actionable ways of coping, skills to use, and suggestions on different approaches. I am so happy to work with him. Very grateful.

I had sessions with Michael for about a month and it was very helpful for me . He gave me good strategies to deal with my problems and made me feel very comfortable during our sessions. I happily recommend Michael as he is a good listener and asks good questions. Thank you Michael!
