About me

My name is Michael Hutchinson, I go by Hutch, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida. My therapeutic orientation may be considered Constructivist, and is designed to meet the individual where they are at, while applying evidence-based techniques rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address disturbances of the mind, emotions, and behavior.

I have been working and studying in the field of mental health since 2012, and have been actively licensed in the state of Florida since 2018. Over that time I have accrued experience in inpatient, outpatient, and community-based settings; always maintaining a focus on trauma, severe/ persistent mental illness, relationships, and many other facets of the human experience.

In my practice, I always strive to promote self-determination, and have always considered clients to be the experts on themselves. Rather than provide advice, we discuss and develop insight rooted in your value system – your choices are not my choices. In addition to this, I have always valued continued education, and constantly seek new evidenced-based interventions and theories of change.

Michael is very easy to talk to. His ability to relate in an authentic manner coupled with insightful comments often times provides a different perspective. He also suggests useful tools when needed. I value each conversation we have.

Honestly the best specialist I could've asked for. Concise, no nonsense sessions.

I've only had a few sessions so far but he's offered great advice and is a good listener. I feel he can break through all the info I'm spewing out to understand what my point is as I don't communicate well at times. He's doing a great job so far!

Michael exemplifies the epitome of a compassionate and skilled therapist. His nonjudgmental demeanor creates a safe and supportive environment, allowing for open dialogue and genuine exploration of my concerns. His professionalism shines through in every session, as he adeptly guides me through various therapeutic techniques tailored to my needs. Beyond his expertise, Michael's kindness and empathy make each session not only productive but also deeply meaningful. I am incredibly satisfied with the progress we have made together, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking compassionate and effective therapy.
