Mike is a master’s level therapist who helps individuals, couples, and families navigate the challenges of their relational lives. He provides a creative and collaborative therapeutic experience that is uniquely tailored to each client. He strives to foster safety and connection by constructing an atmosphere composed of curiosity and compassion. Mike believes that anchoring in nervous system regulation and instilling self-compassion are paramount for each individual to remain connected to themselves and to others while repairing inevitable relational ruptures.

Mike draws on techniques from Internal Family Systems (IFS), the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), and Intimacy From the Inside Out (IFIO) that integrate aspects of psychodynamics, systems thinking, and neuroscience. He is passionate about using these Self-focused practices with men who are searching for healthy ways to express emotions and adults recovering from traumatic childhood experiences and dysfunctional relationships.

Mike earned his Master of Family Therapy degree from Thomas Jefferson University. After working for a decade in the aerospace industry, he has crossed over the career bridge from operating and testing engineered systems to guiding and supporting family systems. Mike serves as a clinical specialist for our Community Partnerships Initiative team where he expands his reach out to meet the needs of the diverse residents living in the greater Philadelphia area.
