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 change process by providing space to develop curiosity, flexibility, and acceptance.

My Approach

I work with clients to develop insight into their own unique stories. I provide opportunities for people to develop an understanding of their emotions and the role our feelings can play in healing our suffering. I also offer space for clients who are looking for more wide-ranging explorations into dreams or spiritual 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 and safety of the client. 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 in every session. My hope is that through our work together my clients will make contact with their true selves in a way that both enriches their lives and deepens their relationships.

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 their true selves. 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 who are struggling with their academics and relationships.
