Prof. Michael McGaugh

(Ed.S, LPC)

About Me

I have about twenty years work experience in the field of mental health services, I have worked as an adult case manager in community support services. I have also been an intake specialist; but the one area I have found the most rewarding is working as a mental health counselor. I enjoy working with people in helping them to see issues and problems from different perspectives and helping them to make better choices that will help them with feeling better about themselves and to overcome their personal problems.

I hold advanced degrees in psychology and mental health counseling. From my education and work experience, I have found CBT and positive center approaches along with solution based therapy to be effective in helping clients to become more mindful along with helping them to build coping skills that they can utilize to help them to be more empowered in making healthy decisions in their lives.

Reviews

Written by A.N. on Feb 22, 2021 after counseling with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

So far Professor Mike McGaugh has been very understanding. I feel as if i am not being judged for who i am. He is also showing me the reality if my situations and experiences which makes me feel validated. I have been learning more about what to do with my emotions than i ever could on my own. Thank you Mike and BetterHelp for this opportunity.
