The Way Out is Through

Let's embark on a journey together to help you realize and achieve your goals. I take immense joy in collaborating with individuals from all walks of life, no matter where you are on your path. Together, we'll explore and nurture your coping skills to navigate through challenges like depression, anxiety, trauma, spiritual questions, and life transitions. My approach is rooted in a holistic, person-centered, and strengths-based perspective. While skill development is valuable, it often isn't sufficient for creating lasting change. By delving into your unconscious mind, we can uncover valuable insights that have the potential to spark profound transformations in your mind, body, and spirit. I'm here to support you every step of the way. *Our sessions will be virtual unless we are meeting for a group or individual retreat.*

“Michael is so gifted: intensely present, sensitive, playful while softly rigorous, drawing on many modalities in scrutinizing old patterns. He’s an ideal collaborator equipping me to handle the transitions ahead. Working with him has been a peak experience.”

-MB, Current Client

“I did research on ketamine and decided to start an infusion followed by talk therapy...The next day, I talk with Michael, and I feel like I can breathe again. I am starting to be more open and vulnerable with my kids. There is a pause before I get pissed off.”

-JF, Client featured in Jan, 24 Issue of KC Magazine

“Michael is safety and kindness in human form! Through his calm spirit and perpetually inquisitive mind, he makes healing trauma and participating in self-work a positive experience.”
