My clients return over the years as life brings new challenges. They trust the work we have done because they have learned to trust who they are. Most of them wonder at first why I focus on the call of the heart. Why I invite them to play. And to make friends with parts of themselves they have been told to get rid of. And it shocks them when they discover they can learn to answer the call of the heart. Because i am older and have a broad spectrum of lived experience as well as an integrative approach, what I have to offer springs more directly from the deep unheard yearning of each unique client, than from one size fits all techniques. The deeper we go the more fun we have.

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in California. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Southern California. Welcome! I'm dedicated to guiding individuals on a journey towards healing and wellness. With a heartfelt commitment to integrating mind, body, and spirit, I specialize in trauma recovery through a blend of somatic therapy, holistic approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) At the core of my practice is somatic therapy, which explores how our bodies hold and express our life experiences. Together, we'll delve into these physical and emotional connections, using gentle movement, mindfulness, and body awareness techniques to release trauma and restore balance. In our sessions, we'll also draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), empowering you with practical tools to manage stress, navigate challenging emotions, and transform negative thought patterns into positive actions. Whether you're seeking relief from past traumas, managing anxiety or depression, or simply striving for a more fulfilling life, I'm here to support and guide you every step of the way.

I am a considerate, direct and an active provider who is committed in assisting my clients to achieve their goals.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging and confusing and one might ask, what does therapy involve? From my experience Therapy involves developing a very special relationship between a professionally licensed practitioner called a therapist and one or more people seeking to collaboratively define and achieve constructive change. This relationship is referred to as the therapeutic bond and is considered one of the most important parts of successful therapy. As such our first step in therapy is, from day one, to form that bond by establishing a trusting, non-shaming environment where any child, adolescent, person, couple, or family will feel safe and sense the therapist is on their side, listens and understands. Therapy on my behalf will involve empathy, genuineness, and mindful acceptance while we collaboratively establish therapeutic changes / goals you feel are both desired and are ready to achieve. Our sessions will involve the language of change as perceived by you the client(s), and constructive finding of solutions. You will be able to present your story without fear of rejection or shame. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and am very effective with middle schoolers, adolescents young adults, and people working in the stressful world of business, hi tech and active military service members, and veterans. During my time as a therapist I have built a reputation as caring, effective and someone who has my client’s best interests at heart. If you feel a connection or that contacting me could be of value, I would be very happy to hear from you. Until such time I wish you the very best in your quest. Sincerely, Mike Michael Durrigan Ca.
