My Approach to Helping
We are confident that we can help you. We're warm, non-judgmental, and professional. All three of these aspects are important when seeking out therapy services. Our philosophy here at Michael Adams and Associates is to meet you exactly where you are in your struggles in a friendly, comfortable environment. We don't treat disorders or diagnoses, we treat people, and with strategies and approaches that are backed by science and research.
We believe that people have the capacity for change if paired with the right therapist. We take pride in listening to your struggles, where you think these problems may be stemming from, and assisting you with making goals for therapy. We will work just as hard as you will to accomplish those goals.
Your rights as a client and our ethical responsibility to you is paramount. We believe that every person that walks through our door can be helped. If you don't feel anything less than a perfect fit with any of our three therapists, we will help you find someone who will, even if it's not at our agency. That's how much we like to see people change.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
That's a pretty normal feeling. We try to take the stigma out of seeking mental health counseling services. We are normal people with normal problems too. We're trying to help normal people.
There's always a reason why you're feeling the way you are, or struggling with something, and we can help find what that is. Already know what is causing the problem? What makes us different is that we have the experience, knowledge, and professionalism to know how to help. We've worked with thousands of clients in our collective careers and are confident that we can help you.
Worried about that first visit? Our therapists do their own scheduling so you will talk to your therapist on the phone before ever sitting down to meet them. Worried still? We offer free 10-15 meet and greet consultations.
