Accepting Clients

Hi, I'm Michael. We all struggle sometimes and I look forward to guiding you on your journey to greater inner peace and happiness.

Clinical Social Worker in Boston, MA

About My Clients

I work with individuals stuggling with OCD, anxiety or depression, utilizing CBT. The way we think often effects how we feel. Learn how to alter your self-perception. For couples, learn to improve your relationships by recognizing unconscious patterns that interfere with communication and love. Find new ways to express feelings and emotions to gain intimacy and connection. Specializations include: couples counseling, infidelity, sexual problems, anxiety and panic, depression.

My Background and Approach

I share my experiences and insight, utilizing integrative modalities including CBT, Gottman, and mindfulness to facilitate self-awareness, authenticity and find creative solutions to your issues. I create a safe and trusting place for you to explore and grow. I use humor, homework and insight to facilitate change. Trained at Columbia University, I have 35 years of experience helping people build meaningful relationships. A relationship can be a mirror where you can clearly see and learn about yourself. And you can make the changes to find true joy!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all of us have the capability to grow and change. I honor living a mindful life, being present and appreciating each moment . We have limited control in our lives and accepting this frees us in many ways. Relationships are a very important part of our sense of wellbeing, and learning how to find and maintain a healthy loving relationship is a key to overall happiness. Self care is very important and, personally, I enjoy yoga, meditation, baking, cooking, playing music and running. I am a father of four and happily married and look forward to learning about you and your interests, aptitudes and issues so you can be your best self.
