My Approach to Helping

*** In accordance with CDC guidelines, My practice is moving solely to Teletherapy with use of secure, confidential video software. There is a substantial amount of research supporting the effectiveness of video therapy. I am currently evaluating options of returning to in-person sessions, and when that happens, I will continue to offer Teletherapy.

Are you feeling stuck and in need of a change? Are you struggling with an underlying worry? Do you find yourself with little motivation to form and maintain relationships with friends and family? There may be something else, perhaps that is difficult to put into words. Sometimes, when it comes to dealing with personal and relational difficulties, we struggle with how to cope, who to talk to and what to say.
There is often an expectation from either the outside world or within to work things out on your own, but why act alone when you are not alone? This is where I can help. I provide a safe, comfortable environment centered around acceptance and support.
I am here to tell you there is hope. You have already started to work towards change in seeking a therapist. Let's work together to address these feelings that hold you back. I want to help guide you through this change, to help overcome these struggles, to feel better.

More Info About My Practice

My name is Michael and I am passionate about building relationships, and helping people work through struggle. I have been in the field of psychotherapy since 2012 after receiving my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. Licensed in the state of Pennsylvania,

My time has been spent working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, life transitions, relationship struggles, and substance use. Working in both inpatient and outpatient environments, I have experience running individual and group sessions focused around anger management, grief, self-care, coping skill building, mindfulness meditation. I have also developed a passion working with men who are struggling to communicate and cope with difficult emotions.

My approach individually is based off of my background in various theoretical frameworks including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, and Interpersonal therapy.
