Hello! my name is Michael Bennett, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA). I have counseled children and youth (K-12), college students, young professionals, couples and families. A field in which I am passionate is child abuse prevention and served as a counselor, group facilitator, and agency director at a community-based child abuse prevention agency. I value inclusive, multicultural, and trauma-informed approaches which I integrate with Rationale Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative Counseling, and Faith/Spirituality Integration. My goal is to create a safe environment and provide support so clients can challenge traumatic narratives, unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and take steps towards healing and transformation.
