Solution oriented

Hi, my name is Michael and I've had the privilege to work as an LCSW Psychotherapist for over 15 years. Throughout our lives, we face a barrage of challenges and sometimes they can compound, especially when they connect to how we were raised. These times can make us feel like we're pulled in too many directions, or like we're "stuck in a hole". If you're here now and exploring a way to seek answers/solutions, I want to congratulate you for taking the first and hardest step forward. I've worked with a broad spectrum of clients to aid in managing their current distress in the present while attending to resolving the past. Together, we can identify how to improve on what's not working to get you back to your ideal balance. We'll use a "whole-person" approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit learning cognitive and behavioral strategies to achieve your path to your identified best trajectory. Whether you're dealing with overwhelming depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship issues I'm here to help! Seeking therapy can feel scary but it's essentially a conversation with you in the driver's seat. Sessions are a safe (non-judgmental and confidential) space to share, learn, grow, and heal. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Whether it's with myself or another provider, I hope you complete the step towards reclaiming the peace and happiness you deserve.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My modalities of treatment are centered on teaching tools within Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Im also well-versed in other evidence-based treatment methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

The feedback I have received from previous clients (which Im proud to share) is that I'm a great listener, a deep/flexible thinker, a strong advocate, an empathetic/compassionate person and that I go the extra mile to ensure that my clients understand their importance within the therapeutic process.
