About Me

Michael

Snapshot

Through both personal and professional challenges, I know that in life we all at times find ourselves, or our loved ones, feeling stuck, confused, or even more disheartened - without hope! Counseling/Therapy is about unraveling the story and learning to write a new narrative and ending that is both healthy and fulfilling. With over 20 years of experience in both clinical and pastoral counseling, I am a full-time clinical therapist, and nationally recognized (NCC), Adjunct Professor at Siena Heights University, and also director at JSi Consulting (Just Stop it!) which is dedicated to helping people through the complexities of compulsive behaviors.

Holding dual Master's Degrees, I am a Ph.D. candidate in Clinical Sexology focusing on all aspects of sexuality both for the individual and in relationships and helping even when sexual behavior becomes problematic or out of control. I am also a consultant for the Judge and Lawyers Assistance Program (LJAP) with the State Bar of Michigan, and consultant for the Macomb County Friend of the Court.  In the community I am a safe ally for those in the LGBT community.
