Michael Witham

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Wyoming since 2012. I began my practice in 2002 while residing in Georgia. I have been active in crisis response/resolution, initial diagnostics/treatment planning, individual and group therapies focusing on impulse control, depression/anxiety coping skills, decision - making/organizational skills. I have worked with issues involving chronic pain management and severe psychotic symptoms management.

I utilize a client - centered and directed cognitive - behavioral approach with my clients. The cornerstone of my collaboration is an empathetic identification of the client's desire to increase/decrease behaviors, manage complex emotional stressors effectively, and enhance decision - making skills while encouraging self - reliance with confidence.

I look forward to meeting my clients and strive to achieve clinically measurable and satisfying goals while enhancing desired strengths and abilities!

Mike is one of the most compassionate, empathetic, yet composed therapist I’ve ever worked with. He has so much wisdom, and draws on own experiences to relate to his patients/clients. Always a pleasure to speak with him!

Michael is by far the best therapist I've ever had. Even though, I was a bit reserved with him in the beginning - I stuck with the therapy and it paid off.

I can hear actually still hear his suggestions in my mind and have found practical ways to incorporate his strategies into my life. He always was reassuring and forgiving even though I struggled to fulfill the tasks. But I think I can imagine that doing the worksheets he suggested would have been certainly helpful! That being said, as a good student, I took notes and tried my best to follow through.

Takeaways:
Mindfulness
Focused Breathing
Going to your 'happy place'
Making your environment as pleasurable as possible (especially for difficult tasks, conversations or situations)
ex. the 5 senses - nice smells, sounds, visuals
Lowering your expectations
Set goals of 3-5 tasks for a week (not 10 for every day)
Getting outside and away from distractions

Beyond this, I have really found that him to be a gentleman. Always professional, never condescending. This intelligent yet unpretentious quality is absolute gold.
I will return for his support in the near future, should I need it!

Michael was amazing. He gave me the skills I needed to manage my anxiety and enlightened me on other habits that I was struggling with that I wasn’t aware of. After my 4 sessions with Michael I feel I’m walking away with the tools I need to manage and improve my day to day anxieties. Thanks Michael!

Michael is a wonderful counselor and therapist, unfailingly respectful, patient, empathetic, and kind. He brings an impressive (and flexible) array of qualifications, knowledge, techniques/approaches and experience to bear on every session, and responds to the unique issues and needs of the client with openness and sensitivity. I could not recommend him more highly!
