About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, sexual addiction, sexual offending, pornography addiction, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, spiritual abuse, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral,dialectical behavioral,psychodynamic, person centered. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.


I look forward to working with you!

Kind, knowledgeable and fun to talk to. My EAP is changing and I plan to track him down in the new one. So yes - I recommend him greatly for marital advise.

Michael is a great therapist. He presses me to think deeply about my feelings and emotions. He's clear and direct in making suggestions on how I should be thinking about issues that I'm dealing with.
