I am a licensed professional counselor in Delaware and National Board Certified Counselor (N.B.C.C.) I hold two masters degrees and I’m currently a Ph.D. candidate. I have experience and results while working as a lead group educator in a diverse population psychiatric hospital in the Greater Philadelphia Area that serviced acute dual diagnosis disorders. In other words, “I’ve seen it all.”
My counseling style is relaxed, interactive, solutions-based, and results focused. My primary approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Beck Institute), EMDR (EMDR/hap), Gottman Couples Therapy (Gottman Institute), and Life Coaching (certified with First Principles Group). Also, if desired, as a seminary graduate that has provided pastoral and biblical counseling for over 15 years, I can offer sound Theological Christian counseling,
My treatment orientations: Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Life and Executive Coaching, EMDR, Eclectic, Emotionally Focused, Family / Marital, Gottman Method, Integrative, Motivational Interviewing. Person-Centered and upon request I can provide Christian Counseling,
My treatment works: Anxiety, Codependency, Coping Skills, Couples Counseling, Depression, Family Conflict, Grief, Internet Addiction, Life Transitions, Men's Issues, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Sexual Addiction, Spirituality, Stress.
I feel what makes me distinct is, if needed only, I can pull from my diverse educational back and experience to practice “philosophical counseling” that helps to assess and factor in the deeper issues of human needs psychology along with what I call the great philosophical triad: who am I, why am I here, and where am I going in light of our identity, strengths, practical lives, relationships, and mental health issues.
Since it takes courage to reach out and seek assistance to secure a more fulfilling life, first, recognize this for yourself. Then, whether short or long term, know I am here if you are ready to take that step in your journey! I look forward to working with you!

I absolutely love Mike Jackson. His approach is so down to earth and relatable. He really makes me feel supported, at any point I have someone on my side. He is quick to respond and flexible with scheduling. He spends the time to give you the education behind what you are experiencing. I really can’t recommend Mike enough. He really has helped me a lot in the short time He’s been my counselor!
Mike was extremely responsive, and followed up with me several times even when I was unresponsive. He is very kind and compassionate, and I would definitely recommend him!
He is a good listener and has good advice!
