Young Adults & Adults
Michael specializes in therapy for transition-aged youth (16-25 years) and adults who experience a range of challenges related to mood and emotion regulation, anxiety, stress, and psychosis. He incorporates evidence-based principles into his practice, largely drawing from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Michael prioritizes the therapeutic relationship to ensure that individuals of various ethnic, cultural, gender, and sexual identities feel supported and encouraged to achieve their personal goals in therapy.
Michael completed his PhD in Clinical Psychology at Queen’s University and his predoctoral residency at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, with an emphasis on the assessment and treatment of adults with emerging and established mental health concerns. He is currently registered as a psychologist in supervised practice with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. In addition to his work at the clinic, Michael currently holds a postdoctoral fellowship in the CBT for Psychosis Service at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
