Hello there, my name is Michael and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I work with LGBTQ+ folk, people of color, college students and young adults with depression, anxiety, trauma and relationship issues; however, all are welcomed! I have experience working with children, teenagers, kiddos and adults with Autism and IDD, polyamorous couples, as well as people with personality disorders. I structure my counseling off an eclectic style with person centered and solution-focused techniques, as well as adapt to my client's goals, needs and wants in counseling.
What I can offer is a non-judgmental interaction. I can provide you with tools to assist with your daily living, give you an ear to vent, as well as positive affirmations for your triumphs. Empathy, active communication, and attentive listening are fundamental tools for a successful counseling relationship.
As your counselor, I am not going to take over your life and tell you what you should or should not do. You are the driver navigating yourself along the winding roads of life. Think of me as the person in the passenger seat, picking out the music and guiding you with GPS at hand :)

Miguel is down to earth and meets me on my level. He’s a calm and understanding presence.
He has been great, he has helped me get through my problems and found great solutions for them!
Miguel is wonderful.
Miguel listens without judgement, he also always responds in a positive manner that changes my direction of thinking. He asks me questions that I wouldn't normally ask myself and I find that extremely helpful. He makes sure I challenge my negative thoughts in a positive way.
Miguel is a great listener and offers great support. When he steps in to offer his help it is perfectly timed and he makes you feel heard. He is very helpful and offers a great perspective. I would highly recommend.
Miguel has helped me become equipped with the tools I need to push through my daily issues. He is very prompt and courteous! I love the messaging style of our sessions - it really works for me and my busy schedule.
Miguel has been an amazing resource and very supportive!
Amazing, supporting counselor. Really asks what needs to be and no matter how off focus I am he listens!
