Hello, I’m Mike

Have you been struggling with identity issues?  Feel overwhelmed, lack motivation, or need help understanding deep-rooted emotions and feelings?  Do you have trouble taking the first step towards positive change? I can help. 

I will work with you, from the very first time we meet, to chart a personalized recovery road map.  I will forge a partnership with you and together we will determine the best course of action to achieve quick results to reach the successful outcome in your journey towards wellness and recovery. 

You may be scared to reach out for help, or feel ashamed of needing professional support to work through debilitating thoughts, feelings, or beliefs.  We all have trepidation taking the first step.  However, I am here to support you at every point and together we will make sure that we work at a pace that feels comfortable to you.  I was there myself at one point, contemplating asking for professional help to assist me on my own personal journey.  I’m glad I did.

I’m here to let you know you don’t have to feel helpless or alone anymore.  There is a way through.  I pledge to provide you with unbiased, non-judgmental, and accepting professional support.

Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious.  You get to choose how you use it.  You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.” Anna Taylor

Approach

Through my experience as a client, I learned the power of the compassion, understanding and a non-judgmental space. This helped me identify, understand , know my experience and feel empowered in my own mind    

Empathy is fundamental to my approach. I use both compassion and understanding to guide my clients. I will give you the tools you can leverage in all facets of your life (family, relationships, work) to overcome obstacles and achieve mental well-being and happiness. If we work together, I am invested in you and strive to ensure your goals become a reality.

While I have a wealth of experience helping clients with issues specific to the LGBTQ+ community, my diverse practice includes individuals and couples of all sexual orientations and identities. I’ve enjoyed a career in the mental health sector for more than twenty years and am endlessly passionate about being your guide on a personal journey towards wellness.

 To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” – Oscar Wilde

Beyond therapy…

When I am not assisting clients on their recovery path, I enjoy spending time with the newest members of my family, two homeless kittens that I recently adopted. My heart is full of love for our furry four-legged friends and companions, and I hope to adopt one, two (or maybe more) shelter dogs in the future.

It’s your turn. Take the first step.
