Had my first session with Michael today and all I can say is, ‘Wow’!! He got a handle on my issues within record time and explains things in ways which really resonate. I’ve had many counselling sessions in the past with other counsellors and whilst they have all helped in some way, I have never experienced such a positive and insightful counselling session as I have with Michael. Really looking forward to the next session!

More about me
LPC, LCDC, LVN
Years in Practice: 17
Hello, my name is Michael. I am an Expert People Developer (EPD), United States Army and Georgia National Guard veteran; a servant-leader with over 25 years of experience in the helping field.
As a graduate of Bowie State University, Adler-Dreikurs Institute, Washington Bible College, Prince George’s Community College and the Academy of Health Sciences, I earned numerous professional validating credentials. In addition to being a psychotherapist and educator, I participated in Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield during the Persian Gulf War, presented at various conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics health, personal growth, spirituality, overcoming real and perceived challenges and Phases of Life and HESTEROLOGY.
Phases of Life and HESTEROLOGY are a growth and development theory and counseling methodology I created and developed. I am an energetic, interactive and solution-focused psychotherapist and facilitator. My therapeutic approach and educational philosophy includes providing support and practical feedback to help participants learn and effectively address life challenges and mistaken goals.
Although I specialized in Adlerian therapeutic techniques, complementary methodologies are integrated as needed to offer a highly personalized and holistic approach. With compassion and understanding, I work with individuals, couples, and groups throughout the lifespan to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I am excited about the possibilities and look forward to working with you.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
