About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist. Licensed in the state of Montana, I’ve spent over around ten years helping people improve their relationships and lives. I’ve worked with nearly every age group and multiple demographics. I worked five years at the center for mental health. This was followed by nearly five years of working in public schools. During my time at each of those places, I assisted people dealing with loss, depression, anxiety, relationship issues and many other issues and challenges.

I enjoy being warm and inviting and believe all people have worth and value. All people make mistakes and struggle. You, me and everyone. If I can work with someone to help them solve their most pressing challenges, that’s what I hope and desire to do. I combine multiple therapy modalities; Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy and Gestalt therapy.

We’re people working through this life. If I can help someone else make it a little more doable than that’s my desire and goal.

Let’s work together to get through those obstacles.

Mike is fantastic! I went through a few therapists before him and just didn’t have a connection or find much benefit. Every session with Mike I walk away with several eye opening notes written down. He provides great examples that relate to my life, he’s friendly and caring. Excellent person to talk to, couldn’t be happier!
