Hi my name is Mike Lafferty and I am a licensed Mental Health Therapist. I have been working with youth and families since 2011 in the outpatient community mental health setting. I believe that life is a journey full of challenges which drive us to find meaning and purpose.
Throughout my life, I have seen the power of change when people come together to explore this journey in a safe and supportive environment. My approach is to create an environment built on trust, where people can feel safe and heard as I join you in your journey to discover what goals and changes are important to you. My counseling style uses person-centered, existential and cognitive approaches to help people build healthy relationships and make positive changes in their lives.
I work with a range of individuals including youth/adolescents, adults, couples, and families to address a variety of concerns such as impulsivity, disruptive behaviors, anxiety, depression and family challenges.
