"Michael knows first-hand the trials of life-when he was just two years old, his father died suddenly leaving him, his mother and seven older siblings in a state of shock and horror. As a means of coping, Michael's mother turned to alcohol, and for fifteen years she attempted to drown her sorrows. But God is so much bigger than our circumstances! For more than two and a half decades, through Christ, Michael has lived life as an over-comer to the crippling effects of sin and guilt."

"How often have we heard? Boy meets girl. They soon realize they love each other, get married, and live happily ever after. But does that really happen? How long before boy and girl start fighting and end up divorced? Is there hope for 'happily ever after' after all the fights, tears, and fears? Yes. Marriage is hard work and most couples struggle day in and out to stay together. You don't have to do it alone. I specialize in helping couples re-capture that love and friendship that brought them together so they can have true happy ever afters."

""It's never to late to have a happy childhood" This quote embodies the core belief and hope that I bring into my practice. Most people bring wounds from childhood into their adulthood. These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive."

"We can spend all of our energy trying to change other people in our lives, blaming them for our brokenness, or we can have the courage to love and change ourselves and thus become more loving people to those around us! The internal messages we have believed and followed are learned. We have the ability to let go of and/or add to the kinds of relationship skills that our parents and others modeled for us. Essentially, we can connect."

"Openness, curiosity, empathy, compassion, and creativity are personal attributes that shape the type of clinician that I strive to be. These characteristics have been helpful in allowing me to connect with clients and build strong therapeutic relationships, which I believe is a crucial ingredient to successful treatment. I don't believe people are "sick," but rather they get "stuck" in a pattern of interacting with others and the world in a way that no longer works for them. If you have been feeling stuck, unmotivated, worried or stressed, unable to enjoy life, or unsatisfied with you relationships, I can help. "
