Headway

Michael

I am here with you. Well, not yet. But when I’m with you, I’m with you. With you in your pain and loneliness, your sadness and anger, your joy, your surprise and inspiration. With you in your transition, your loss, your growth and transformation. Therapy with me is a creative process of exploration and discovery in the here and now. I believe that we have a boundless capacity to grow and change, to heal and become unstuck from self-denying, self-destructive ways of being. I also believe that your experience of being stuck is REAL; it’s not “all in your head” and you can’t “just snap out of it.” I know because I’ve been there.


I have healed and I have helped others to heal. In the room, I bring my training in Gestalt therapy and years' experience working with LGBTQ+ folks and people grappling with anxiety, trauma, depression, HIV & other chronic illnesses. I also bring over 20 years of artistic experience as a rapper and a writer, and my client base includes many creative people.


So how can you or I know that I’m the right therapist for you? We don’t know. Lets meet and find out. Psychologist Alice Miller writes: “Once you feel truly and deeply understood by someone, your body will let you know this immediately and very clearly.” I know you are more than your struggle. I believe in your capacity to grow.
