My name is Michael Sheffield and alongside obtaining my Master's degree, I have been working in the counseling field with people for 3 years. Life is hitting you hard right now and you're stuck. Maybe you feel alone. Maybe you struggle doing what you need or want to get done. Maybe you struggle with the way your mind works. Or just maybe you feel like there's not much meaning in your life. My life and training are lent towards working with people experiencing depressed mood, anxiety, overactive/judgemental minds, relationship stress, pessimism, trauma, sleep disturbance, OCD, uncontrolled anger/mood, workaholism, and chronic pain.
6 years ago, I sustained a spinal cord injury that completely shifted my priorities. It is my passion to talk about that which matters in life, while helping people find their truth/purpose (same thing) and to ACT on it. I think my life experience makes me uniquely qualified to help people develop motivated action and find peace through turbulent lives.
Our work will be completed through a combination of ACT therapy/coaching and existential philosophy. Through these modalities, we will work through challenges and build coping skills, while establishing and pursuing value-based goals. There are no quick fixes in mental health. If you are ready to put in the work to reorient your mind, please reach out now.
