Michael Hessler, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Are you worried or frustrated with your adolescent or young adult and need support?

I have decades of experience working with teens (12+) and young adults and understand the turmoil this stage of life can bring. I will listen carefully to your concerns and will work to form a connection with your youth that will be safe and effective. I use creative, educational, and gentle technique to ensure that you and your teen are heard, and together we will work to achieve your goals. It is my belief that everyone deserves a satisfying life, and I would like to help you and your loved ones find ways to achieve that goal.

Do you feel stuck in old patterns and are hoping for a positive change?

If you’re willing to do the work, change is always possible. I will work to build your trust so that together we can set goals for you to be your best self. Even just verbalizing how you’re feeling and exploring those feelings can create new ways to re-frame what you’re struggling with. Throughout our work together, I will introduce therapeutic tools and interventions that will support you in your specific areas of need.

Are you nervous about sharing your feelings with someone new?

No matter what your age or situation, my goal is to help you feel as comfortable so that we can build a strong relationship and find solutions to your struggles. Drawing on my decades of experience, I use an eclectic and warm style, weaving in humor when appropriate. I will work to provide you with hope and optimism during this time as well as effective tools to help improve your situation.
