Hello, my name is Michael. I am an Expert People Developer (EPD), United States Army and Georgia National Guard veteran; a servant-leader with over 25 years of experience in the helping field.
As a graduate of Bowie State University, Adler-Dreikurs Institute, Washington Bible College, Prince George’s Community College and the Academy of Health Sciences, I earned numerous professional validating credentials. In addition to being a psychotherapist and educator, I participated in Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield during the Persian Gulf War, presented at various conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics health, personal growth, spirituality, overcoming real and perceived challenges and Phases of Life and HESTEROLOGY.
Phases of Life and HESTEROLOGY are a growth and development theory and counseling methodology I created and developed. I am an energetic, interactive and solution-focused psychotherapist and facilitator. My therapeutic approach and educational philosophy includes providing support and practical feedback to help participants learn and effectively address life challenges and mistaken goals.
Although I specialized in Adlerian therapeutic techniques, complementary methodologies are integrated as needed to offer a highly personalized and holistic approach. With compassion and understanding, I work with individuals, couples, and groups throughout the lifespan to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I am excited about the possibilities and look forward to working with you.

Michael is awesome. He's authentic, listens and has great advice.
Brilliant therapist- can’t describe how his personality is so comforting and supportive, learn your tools and apply!
Michael is helping me to see life in a more positive way and this is brilliant for my mental health recovery. Thank you Michael!
Michael is amazing! I just finished my second session with him. He holds a lot of knowledge of life and people, with so much compassion. Our personalities work well together so my sessions don't feel like therapy, but more like a positive, empathic, energetic conversation that provides me with new skills. I look forward to our next session.
Michael is a great human being who clearly has a lot of experience in helping people. He figured me out pretty quickly and helped guide me to make a quick recovery back to my best self.
Michael and I clicked from the first appointment and I'm very glad to have found him through this service! It was a great match!
Michael is a great therapist! He brings excitement and passion for helping others. The connections and realizations he creates put things into perspective. In a fun and exciting way. I am very glad to have him as my therapist! 10/10 recommend.
Micheal is very solutions oriented. He stresses taking action, and he always lifts my spirits and motivates me when we meet. I would recommend him for anyone who is trying to bring more positivity to their mind and to their life.
I have tremendous respect for Michael. His approach to counseling is always positive yet actionable. He normalizes your concerns as tangible and provides tools to best address them with a positive mindset.
I’m always looking forward to our sessions. Very glad for the help!
We've only met 2 times, but It seems like we've know each other for many years... I enjoy his prospective and how he communicates with me... Feels more like a big brother... Thx
Michael is kind and lifts you up :)
He is phenomenal. He always keeps a smile on my face and genuinely cares about me. I was so hesitant to seek help, but I am so grateful for Michael and so happy I joined and was matched with him.
