I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut with 16 years of clinical work experience. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I can assist clients who experience depressive/ mood disorders, anxiety/panic disorders, personality disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, trauma, issues of adjustment, addictions, and social stressors.
I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy which address the impact of our thoughts on our feelings and behaviors. I will work with you to address and alter the irrational thoughts and beliefs that increase symptom severity and that accompany negative feelings and behaviors. I also utilize humor, when appropriate, to help strengthen the therapeutic bonds with my clients. Each client is unique and I am able to customize my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Michael Kolpinski. 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.
Mike is a fantastic therapist for what I needed, to get out of my emotional shell. A lot of personal problems with mental state and relationship. Mike helped me navigate struggles in my own mind and provided tools to succeed in areas of my life I wanted to focus therapy on. Definitely recommend for an easy going therapist.
Michael is a wonderful therapist. He created a safe place for me to learn and grow. He is very reachable and knowledgeable. Michael made therapy feel natural
Michael has been a great therapist and has helped me to talk out and work out some personal and professional challenges I was having. He is intuitive and knowledgeable, and helped me process and change behaviors. I highly recommend him.
Michael has been instrumental in providing tools and resources that I needed at this time. He has been a great listener, respectful, and helpful. I would recommend him 10/10 times!
Excellent communication and understanding of my situation and thought process. Very helpful and easy to talk with, giving honest insight and correlating awareness to my needs
I had a very rewarding experience with Michael as my therapist. This was the first time I was seeking therapy, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Michael was very easy to talk to, knowledgeable, encouraging, but not afraid to challenge me in an absolute supportive light to help me navigate through my struggles in my personal and interpersonal journey.
