I’m a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience across a variety of mental health settings including Butler Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital. My passion is therapy and I’ve spent the past 6 years helping individuals to navigate life’s stressors and unlock the best version of themselves. I specialize in treating adults experiencing depression, anxiety, men’s issues, compassion fatigue, and major life transitions.
My work is rooted in evidence-based practices which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing. My education includes a Bachelor’s in Social Work from Providence College and a Masters in Social Work from Rhode Island College.
I pride myself on letting you decide which issues are most important while providing some guidance to find your own answers.
Individual sessions on a long or short-term basis to identify to help you better navigate symptoms and stressors you may be experiencing. Whether you're adjusting to a major life change or managing the challenges of a long-term diagnosis, we'll develop a treatment plan that's best for you.
All therapy services are virtual at this time.
Individual case consultation on a long or short-term basis to licensed social workers or those seeking their LCSW or LICSW.

"Michael has been great! He solves my problems and sets a goal for the next time we touch base. He has been a huge help to me."
"At first I was skeptical about doing therapy online, not sure if it truly would help, and not sure if the therapist I got would be good for me. But Michael truly did make my online therapy experience amazing. He always responded as soon as he was able, and he truly helped me through so many different problems of mine. He's a great listener."
"Michael is caring and genuinely wants to listen and guide me through my thoughts."
