Thank you for reading my counselor profile. I have been a licensed (LPC) and certified (CRC) counselor for about 30 years. I have experience in a variety of rehabilitation and mental health settings. This clinical background has allowed me to assist a diverse group of individuals with many different life issues. Fortunately, I have able to help both younger and older individuals throughout my career.
My general counseling style is client centered. The tools I use are drawn from an eclectic group of counseling theories, including Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused therapy and Mindfulness. Of course, expertise and a solid theoretical base are important in helping, but every individual is unique. Therefore, everyone who seeks counseling has unique issues and deserves individualized assistance. No one is their "diagnosis" or "disability". You are the expert on you.
Change can be difficult. My contribution, as a guide and partner, is to really listen, care, and share what has worked for others in situations similar to yours. Then we can adapt my expertise to your specific experiences and concerns to help you begin a better future.

Michael is very kind and has a pleasant voice. So far I've been talking up a storm and he is a good listener. He asks thought provoking questions.
