Mike supports the mental and relational wellness of individuals, couples, and families. He provides unique and creative ways to guide therapy participants through life’s inevitable challenges. He shapes space for a collaborative, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed therapeutic experience that is tailored to each person. He strives to foster emotional safety and relational attunement by constructing an atmosphere composed of curiosity and compassion.

He works primarily from the lens of psychodynamic, emotionally focused, and family systems therapy in an effort to promote self-awareness of unconscious functioning and an understanding of attachment behavior while navigating relationships. His flexibility as a practitioner allows him to shift into various roles during a session, such as a provider of unconditional positive regard, an advocate for self-care, an educator of emotional regulation, a guide to self-discovery, and a facilitator of relational healing.

After working a decade in the aerospace industry, Mike crossed over the career bridge from operating and testing engineered systems to guiding and supporting family systems. This decision was fueled by a combination of his innate sensitivity trait to deeply experience the feelings and behaviors of others and his passion to provide relief to the emotional pain and suffering we all endure.
