I believe that therapy can heal, but I also know that telling a stranger about your deepest pain can be a strange feeling. Perhaps you've been feeling sad, depressed or worried, and hopeless that anything in your life can change. Or maybe you aren't sure what you would even want help with. You know you feel bad, but if someone were to ask you "How can I help?", you aren't sure what you would say. These problems can feel permanent and unsolvable. After all, something feels broken and unfixable, so how could you not feel that it takes all the energy you have just to get up in the morning and go about your day? Depression or anxiety can also feel isolating, as if nobody else could possibly understand. You may have even received advice from people who you feel mean well but can't understand what you're going through. Depression and anxiety are not permanent or unfixable, and therapy can help. Imagine feeling peace of mind, and excited about life and its possibilities. It starts by learning about you and going at your pace. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 16 years experience working with adults and teens, I've seen therapy work, and I feel lucky that I get to be part of that journey for others.

Welcome. First I would like to recognize your strength and courage to seek out mental health support. Life can be challenging to manage. And oftentimes, the toughest part is deciding to reach out for support. I believe the most important aspect of treatment is that clients feel heard, treated with respect, and actively involved in the healing process. Everyone has their own journey. Whether it’s an acute or chronic mental health concern, I use a person-centered approach to empower clients to regain power and stability in their lives. If you need a safe space to unpack how stress impacts your mental health, together we can work on improving interpersonal skills, reducing symptoms, and developing coping skills to deal with life's challenges.

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.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have experience working with clients and families of all ages and backgrounds who have experienced a variety of challenges. I bring to the table an eclectic psycho therapeutic approach utilizing evidenced based therapeutic interventions. I believe that you need to meet each individual that you are working with where they are, creating a safe and secure environment in order to promote strength and balance. My goal is to provide a non-judgmental, and collaborative setting for my clients to share their thoughts and their feelings and feel safe while doing so. It is important to allow each individual person to feel empowered, to let them know how resilient they are, and to be better equipped to handle life's everyday stressors. Seeking out mental health services can be overwhelming and scary at first. But it is my goal as a therapist to help my clients feel safe and to allow them to truly be themselves.

Greetings! I'm Michelle, and I am so happy you are taking this step on your wellness journey. We want to live our best lives. However, things can sometimes get in the way. We often feel as though our emotions are spiraling out of control, or that we are walking on eggshells trying to avoid negative interactions with those around us. We may be struggling to cope with the effects of trauma or feelings of worry, hopelessness, or detachment. We might have a loved one who is experiencing a chronic physical or mental health condition that influences our emotional well-being. These challenges can impact us in many ways. It is not uncommon to feel stuck or overwhelmed. Sometimes we may even feel as if our very identity is defined by the problems we are facing. You may feel isolated ashamed, or unsure of how to move forward. I love joining my clients on their healing journey. I help them identify the areas in their life that are preventing them from embracing their self-worth and potential. I use storytelling and art to separate the problem from the person. Utilizing evidence-based techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy will help you get to the root of the problem and develop skills to regain control. When working with children, adolescents, and teens I use my training in Play Therapy to create an experience that is relevant and engaging for younger clients. My job is to be a safe harbor while you grow during this process. I work with children, adolescents, and caregivers as they improve their sense of well-being, safety, happiness, recovery, and health. I’ve worked with many youth and caregivers who are missing out on the joy of living. My passion is helping youth and caregivers find the best parts of themselves and grow to love themselves again. Contact me today for a free consultation and we’ll get started on your journey together.
