About Me

A wide array of experiences has helped Mike to be open-minded to many walks of life. As a professional basketball player for five years in Europe, Mike was exposed to many different cultures and mindsets. He believes everyone has a unique story and a unique past that shapes their present. Mike can especially relate to feeling the need to always perform at a high level in life. Playing basketball has also given him a mindset of teamwork. Mike wants to approach the counseling sessions together as a collaboration – working together as a team. He sees his role as guiding you toward growth, hope, and healing.

In addition to working with individuals, Mike has experience working with children over five years old, couples, and those struggling with substance abuse. Other specialties include trauma therapy, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and self-esteem issues. Mike is trained in Brainspotting, which is an effective tool that explores how our bodies process past experiences. He is honored to have the opportunity to work with you and meet you on your journey.
