My Story

I spent 12 years in digital marketing and e-commerce as a small business owner before becoming a Mental Health Therapist. After doing my own “soul searching” with the help of a skilled psychotherapist and career counselor I was able to find a new path. Life has challenges and the things that are worthwhile do not come quick or easy. Working our way through the challenges instead of around them brings lasting change. For some bringing another person into their life’s challenges can be intimidating and it takes great courage to reach out for help. For me, finding peace was only possible after I let go of my insecurities and became committed my own journey of healing. I find it greatly rewarding to help others in finding their own path and feel greatly privileged that my clients allow me to join them on their journey.

Professional Experience

Mitch’s clients describe him as being “direct and real”. He offers a variety of approaches to help people pursue their unique potentials. Mitch believes that many people shortchange themselves and rarely feel at peace in their lives. His goal is to support clients in developing and living the life they love.

His work with individuals focuses on healing from past and present emotional pain and trauma – which often cause depression, anxiety, grief, and anger. He looks at attachment styles and behaviors to help clients see the problems occurring in their lives and relationships.

Couples that work with Mitch find his straight-forward style simultaneously challenging and validating. He helps partners see, and then change, the negative patterns and habits they have re-enacted with each other over and over. He fosters more assertive and loving communication that couples can use to better relate to each other, their families, and in all areas of their lives.

“Life is too short to feel stuck in unhealthy relationships, harbor resentment, or let trauma control us. With support and treatment, it is possible to find peace, meaning and purpose.”

Mitch uses evidence-based psychotherapy methods such as Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavior Training (DBT), and Hypnotherapy. He also incorporates into the therapeutic process, his own experiences of hardship and roles as a husband, father, team-member, & friend.

Clinician Specialties

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.

Counseling for New Mothers

For new moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.” For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving and enlightening. Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

Online Counseling

*Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing recommendations, some Mindfully Healing Clinicians are now offering VIDEO TELEHEALTH services to both new and established clients.

"Mindfully Healing embraces a personal growth based model unlike a problem or deficiency based model of traditional mental health... Our clients experience this during their first session."

Why Private Pay is Beneficial for Some Clients?
  • Insurance does not cover relational difficulties such as couples and family therapy, they require a DSM-V diagnosis for one of the members. As a fee-for-service provider, I do not have to give you a mental health diagnosis.
  • Mental health diagnoses can follow you and be documented on health records and can result in affecting life insurance applications, health insurance applications and other benefits or services.
  • Together, we can determine how many times we meet instead of the insurance company making that decision.
  • Since a treatment plan, notes and billing information are not being released to an insurance company, a greater amount of confidentiality is in place for you.
