About me

I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado with over 6 years experience working with individuals from all walks of life. My professional background includes grief and loss, anxiety and depression, identity development, coping with life transitions, gerontology, relationship and group dynamics, and crisis intervention. I have experience working in outpatient and inpatient therapeutic settings with clients. As a trained Marriage and Family Therapist, I understand how our lives are parts of existing systems and interconnected relationships.
Sometimes in our life we find ourselves stuck on what to do, how to feel, and the ways in which we relate to others. This can be an exceptionally distressing place to find ourselves in and, from my perspective, this is where the magic happens for personal growth to occur. I approach therapy from a warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental perspective. My main focus is to create a space and develop a relationship with each of the clients I work with where we are able to explore our thoughts and feelings in a safe and beneficial way. Engaging in the process of therapy takes a great deal of courage and requires a tremendous amount of respect. As a therapist, I strive to meet you where you are with kindness and admiration. If you’re ready to do some work, I’m more than humbled to accompany you in this journey!
I look forward to connecting with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Michael Graham. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

After having worked with Michael for over a year, I have nothing but the best to say. The journey we took made me a better person and feel at peace. I was a disaster when I reached out on BetterHelp (seeking my first-ever therapist), and there couldn't have been a better choice than Michael. I was full of anger, experiencing daily depression, and everything in my life was overwhelming. I was caught in a downward spiral I couldn't escape. Struggling with boundaries in all aspects of my life, I hit my bottom.

Michael understood the emotions I was experiencing and could explain how I felt better than I even could. We began an adventure into unrooting these problems and helping me to understand myself. We wrote many chapters together, and he helped me to understand my emotional state on a deeper level. Being kind to myself, mindful of the here and now, setting boundaries, and the roles fear and doubt played on my mind were just a few topics we explored.

Over time, I learned to build up my confidence again, spend more time with family and friends, focus on what matters and take chances in life. Some of the best decisions of my life were made with Michael guiding the way. Talking with him felt comfortable, safe, and relatable in every way. I could open up in ways I didn't think possible all while not feeling shame.

I would 100% recommend Michael if you are looking for assistance in life. He will be the best guide for helping you navigate through your issues.

Throughout the time working with Michael, I was able to really come out of the shell I had worked myself into. I filled out my entry paperwork with wanting to work on — finding my place in life, codependency, and anger management. I was just getting out of a relationship with someone diagnosed with BPD. Michael helped me tremendously to seek out my former self and get back to enjoying life without fear. I tried stand up comedy for the first time, I met new friends, i bettered myself in my career, and even met a new lady friend to share these fun life experiences with.

I truly value Michael’s outlook on life and human interaction. Learning to be kind to yourself and others goes a long way. And share a smile! He’s a kind soul to share your time with. Would recommend him to any one and everyone!

I cannot believe a therapist like Michael actually exists. He has helped me transform my life and heal from trauma I thought I’d never even begin to heal from.

Michael is wonderful. In our time together, he helped me listen to myself with greater clarity, and become more sure of myself. Michael asked the tough questions that have helped be be more authentic and empowered in my relationships and build my confidence, and see where my patterns are not serving me. It was a great decision for me to spend my time with Michael.

Written on Jun 20, 2021 after therapy with Michael for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I've struggled with depression, anxiety and even suicidal thoughts in the past. The rage I've struggled with throughout my life as a response to the sexual, emotional and physical trauma endured have cost me relationships, jobs and several times... My freedom. Seeking help with "my feelings" as a man had not been perceived as an option and more so as a Hispanic man. None of this was true and kindness has shown me another path.
I've tried therapy several times in the past, but never with any success.
Working with Michael has changed many of my old perceptions with his ability to connect on a real level. He has an ability to ask the right questions to get me to ask myself the questions I need to actually self evaluate. Once I started doing that with his overall approach centered around kindness, for myself first, I could finally be honest with myself about who I want to be.
My experience with Michael has been nothing short of life alternating.
I am not the same person who joined Better Help.

When I started with Michael I wasn’t sure how the process would go, I had never worked with a counselor before. We unpeeled lots of layers for me to learn how to empower me, love me and be kind to me. I could never have done this without Michael’s help, knowledge, feedback and compassion for helping others. He truly has a gift as a counselor! Thank you, thank you for changing my life!
