"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. "

"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."

"Some days are good, while others are something to be reckoned with. On the reckoning days, typical daily activity can seem overwhelming and sometimes the anxiety, stress, or sadness can feel painful, both physically and emotionally. Even taking a deep breath during these times can be a struggle. And, to add to the overwhelm, you've been looking at these profiles hoping that one would jump out and spell out the answer to the million dollar question…what comes next? The struggle is real, and the vulnerability that comes with looking for answers can be equally overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Because you're not alone."
