I am a License Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience in a variety of settings. I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan and have provided counseling in the outpatient, inpatient and Community Mental Health settings. I specialize in helping people who are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss and self-esteem issues.
I am trained in Cognitive-Behavioral and Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy as well as Solution-focused treatments. I believe that people have the power to heal themselves and sometimes just need some support and guidance toward that end.
I know it takes courage to ask for help and want to say congratulations on taking this first step toward a healthier you! It is an honor and privilege to be in the service of others and I look forward to walking the path of growth together!

I have been in a confusing and difficult relationship for several years and I needed clarity. Michael drilled down to the core problem on the first session. I have a lot to work on and several serious behavior modifications to make in order to fully take responsibility for my life and fully be who I want to be. Outside I look like a professional, accomplished woman but on the inside... yeah, no. Michael is solidly grounded and knows how to rephrase something that I haven't fully grasped. I would recommend him highly to anyone and have already recommended him and betterhelp to other friends.
Michael can do what so many of my past therapists could not: consistently adapt to my moods and meet me where I’m at. My mood disorder can be hard to keep up with, but Michael knows how to be supportive and gently point me in a more positive direction— without being judgmental or condescending. He has never missed or been late for a session, which is a big deal if you have trust issues. Michael is intelligent, professional, and makes his clients a priority. When I’ve been in meltdown mode, he’s even replied to my messages after business hours and on weekends. And, he schedules our sessions based on what works best for me. I feel very lucky to have such an experienced and attentive therapist.
Michael's advice and guidance have helped me think through my situation. He is a good listener and is thoughtful about his responses.
He is a great listener. He put things in perspective and really listened to what I needed to say.
Michael is understanding, kind, and empathetical. He's an amazing counselor and I would highly recommend him for anyone struggling. I knew I could get better but didn't know how, Michael gave me the tools and inspiration to become happy.
Very good at understanding and helping with everything! Helps me see things in a new way and gives good options for solutions. Willing to work with my schedule which is something I really need.
