Change is something that many people either fear or embrace. Everyone will experience some form of change at one point in life. Whether you are getting married, becoming a new parent, going through a divorce, retiring from our job, sending kids off to college, or experiencing the death of a loved one or spouse - everyone will experience some form of transition in life. Mike assists people in making sense of these transitions in a healthy and productive way.
I have a background in both mental health as well as substance abuse spanning over 20 years. I also love to utilize art therapy, music therapy, journaling, affirmations and bibliotherapy with my clients. I look forward to helping you to become the best version of yourself that you can be.
