Mitchell "Mitch" Turner

LPC

About Me


Attending UW-Madison from 1986-90, I received a B.A. with a Major in Psychology; and 1992-94, an M.S. in Counseling. For 20+ years, I served the State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections as a Probation / Parole Agent. A disproportionate number of clients on my caseload had significant mental health issues. Having served as Motivational Interviewing Ambassador to D.O.C. for 3 years, I learned to elicit reasons for change that is held within someone. I have worked for Goodwill Industries, Catholic Charities, Tellurian, and Family Service in a clinical capacity. On 3-1-19, I became a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC 7290-125). On 11-30-20, I obtained my Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor License (CSAC 16472-132). On 12-1-20, I obtained my Clinical Supervisor In Training License (CS-IT 15891-133). I am a Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) Network Provider at Dane County Human Services. I am the Service Director at Stay Focused Counselor, LLC which is in the CCS Network. I am a consultant with R3C (R3 Continuum), providing Disruptive Event Management (DEM) to assist employees at a worksite disaster or crisis. I am the Clinical Supervisor at Madison West Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), a Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program to assist those individuals with Opioid Use Disorder F11.20. Madison West CTC is part of Acadia Healthcare. I also provide counseling through my United Healthcare contract.

Throughout my career, I encountered people from all walks of life, including the homeless, chronically mentally ill, intellectually challenged to substance abuse addicts and those that are suicidal. I have had extensive experience and educated on domestic violence and working with perpetrators. I have been on a personal crusade to gain as much knowledge as possible about nutrition and fitness.

I realized that I could combine my passion for nurturing mental health with my extensive work experience to develop a program that will help people stay focused on health and wellness, relationships, freedom, and career development. I seek to help people struggling to find their footing in life, become successful regardless of any obstacles or challenges they face. I am dedicated to solving problems I have encountered as well as those of others, spending every day studying new and innovative trends and discoveries. It is my belief that everyone has a purpose in life; it is never too late to improve the rest of yours.

I have developed the program "Stay Focused" which is taking shape every day. I created the Model of Self-Control to help someone remain non-assaultive and non-threatening regardless of any curveballs thrown their way. I’ve learned the top criminogenic factors are one’s thinking and their relationships with family and peers. I’ve discovered if you find something you are passionate about, you will never work a day. I’ve designed a program that will prioritize and organize these areas. It gives me great pleasure to help you find peace and happiness. It is my mission to help you Stay Focused on Your Goals!

He always had a way to make you feel like you’re not alone. Like you’re not the only one going though this.

I had a great first session with Mitch & am very excited about continuing our conversations in future sessions. I didn't know what to expect for how we would be matched or what to expect with my match, but I think they did an awesome job with matching us together & I left my session with some really good information that I hadn't really thought of before.

Mitch is the best therapist I’ve had on the app! He’s easy to talk to, listens, gives sounds advice, and is very helpful! Thank you!

I have been working with Mitch and have been through several sessions with him. He has a very effective way of talking through a problem and proposing solutions. The conversations were not easy for me and were highly emotional initially but the results are effective. Now when we talk we are focusing on development of additional coping skills and strategy.

I’ve only had the opportunity of one session, so far Mitch seems like a very knowledgeable professional.

Written by M.A. on Aug 29, 2021 after therapy with Mitchell "Mitch" for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I appreciate being able to share what I don’t with others. Helps me sort out sometimes the very obvious.

Work with me!
