Michael Ianello

Professional Counselor Intern

Humans are in a constant process of becoming. From infancy to old age, we take on new roles and identities, becoming many different versions of ourselves. I work with clients to shine a light on their own experience of change by providing space to develop curiosity, flexibility, and acceptance.

My Approach

I offer clients a space to work through their immediate concerns and develop measurable, achievable goals for their treatment. I also offer space for clients who are looking for more wide-ranging process oriented explorations of their lived experiences. I have training in a variety of therapeutic modalities and I work with clients to find the right fit for them. I take pride in a therapeutic style which is solely focused on the needs of the client in the moment of therapeutic contact. I value diversity and strive to treat all clients with dignity and respect, no matter their beliefs or background. I work with directness and a light touch to ensure both comfort and authentic connection are achieved so as to provide clients with optimal opportunities for reflection and personal growth.

My Background

Who makes the choices in our lives? Which parts of ourselves feel authentic? I provide clients with a unique opportunity to make contact with core aspects of themselves. To do this I provide a compassionate place of understanding and acceptance. From this place of contact clients are given opportunities and guidance in talk therapy as well as opportunities to engage in some of the following; meditation, journal writing and interpretation, dream work, art therapy, relational-cultural therapy. I work well with clients who are experiencing anxiety based disorders (generalized anxiety, social phobias, relational issues) and I have knowledge and experience working with men's issues (anger, irritability, intimacy, etc), mood disorders, psychosis, delusions, and spiritual questioning. As a former educator and private tutor I also have extensive experience working with adolescents.
