Michael McWhirter


About Me

As a seasoned therapist working well over thirty years helping a diversified population from school age children their families to working with mentally-ill patients and providing substance abuse treatment to individuals and group therapy providing these services as career is very full feeling. Those whom are in need of getting their life back together is always a challenge and can be very stressful. So therefore, the approach to counseling requires different methods to the person needs depending on what is going on in their lives. Working with individuals does require different approaches such as cognitive/supportive/confrontational therapy to reach their ability to function well. It's always hard to ask for Help and open up to someone whom you do not know but the benefits can be very rewarding. If I can be of professional assistance to you please reach out and we can work together on these changes.

It's been amazing to work with Michael. He is extremely friendly, patient and a good listener. He is always making sure that my thoughts are clear and that I have an action plan in place at the end of our calls, which is something that is helping me a lot.
