Michael Davis

LCSW, LMSW

About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker living in Florida with over 15 years of experience working as an individual, family and group therapist. I have worked with clients in a wide range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger issues, parenting problems, relationship issues, OCD and ADHD. The majority of my work has been as an "in-home therapist" guiding children and parents as they overcome past abuse, neglect and grief/loss issues.

My counseling style is personable and engaging. I am non-judgmental and hold unconditional positive regard for all. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectal behavioral, psychodynamic and trauma-focused therapies . I will collaborate to discover what type of counseling will benefit you the most. Staying on task by developing interventions to achieve your goal is central to overcoming any challenges.

It is an honor and privilege to work with everyone as they start the tough, but rewarding journey to achieve a more joyful and happier life.

Michael is special. He takes an approach with therapy that is unconditionally supportive and kind, even when it is probably very justified for him to feel differently. His approach is impactful in a unique way. I’ve had a lot of therapists more or less give up on me in the past when I’m unreliable about keeping appointments (which is an interesting paradox, given those were the same mental health professionals that should have known at least something about depression/anxiety and avoidance). Michael finds ways to still connect and deliver powerful, helpful, and effective advice even when you are struggling with what can feel like the simplest of things… just showing up. I’m really grateful to have met him.

Accidentally clicked "strongly disagree" when asked about promptness of communication. I meant to click "strongly agree". Please fix.

Outstanding and compassionate listener who nudges me to better understanding what I already know and helping me figure out how to go one step further. I don't feel pressured to make changes and can move at my own pace. Really great experience.

Very helpful in providing positive framework in conflicts and confusion. Michael has been great in listening, reflecting and offering alternative perspectives. I have learned so much in a short period of time!

As someone with General and Social Anxiety talking to someone new is not easy for me. It's either prattling or silence. Michael made me feel at ease, listened to and understood from the first session. I stated in my questionare I was not religious but spiritual but still was greatly relieved there was not even a flutter of judgment when I casually dropped the word witch into the session. There is a gentleness in the accountability he holds me to that makes it a safe space to discuss and explore the blackslides and self detrimental things we sometimes experience in our healing.
