We are all facing challenges in this life and often we find ourselves unsure of where to turn or what to do. We all too easily get stuck in a rut and can use a little nudge to get us out and moving again. I'm glad you have taken the first step in seeking help. Counseling can seem a daunting endeavor but it can also be very beneficial and rewarding as a means to working through life's challenges. My hope is that you will continue reading about me, but ultimately whether you choose to work with me or another counselor I hope you are able to gain a better understanding of your situation and create brighter outcome.
My name is Mike and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Professional in Florida. Throughout my career, my goal has been to help others to better understand the difficulties they are facing and find a path to work through those challenges. I accomplish this goal by openly and without judgement, meeting the client where they are. My approach includes principles from multiple theorists, each having their own benefits dependent on the issues that are being faced. Our focus will be on the present, the here and now. When necessary as part of developing better understanding, we will look at past events and triggers for how they have informed the present, but we are in the present. We will work collaboratively to better understand current problems, we'll set realistic goals for progress and develop skills necessary to not only overcome current issues but face future concerns as well. My areas of practice include depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma as well as issues related to infertility and stage of life challenges.
You've taken the important first steps in this journey to a healthier you. I look forward to working with you, but whether you choose to work with me or another counselor, I wish you only the best on your journey.

Mike has been amazing. He's compassionate, thoughtful, knowledgeable, respectful, and above all he meets you where you are. Highly recommend having him as your guide.
Mike is fabulously attentive, respectful and just all around a comfortable person to talk with :) Thanks for being so great Mike :)
Mike has been amazing. In the short time we've been working together, I really feel like we've been able to make progress towards my goals, and it wouldn't be possible without his excellent help.
I really enjoy my interaction with Mike! I feel like he does in fact understand me and is very supportive!
Mike has helped me so much over the short period of time that I have worked with him so far. He always gives me thorough answers and helps me analyse my anxiety and its causes, without being judgemental. I really feel listened to and like he understands what I’m going through, which has helped me a lot. Thank you!
So far I have had great progress in my sessions with Mike. I would absolutely recommend him.
