Targeted group workshops
Stories bring ideas to life and allow the listener to connect with the ideas in a more dynamic way. Stories also allow each person to pull the information relevant to them from the stories, without that information having to be explained in a way they may or may not connect with.
Helping others develop
Self-agency is the idea that each individual can make positive things happen in their own life. However, emerging adults often struggle against the lack of power they've experienced in their lives thus far. Instead of looking to everyone else for answers and direction, imagine believing we can figure it out and make it happen ourselves.
Sharing Real-life solutions
Real-life solutions allow people to move from understanding ideas and wanting things to be different to taking action and creating a difference in their lives. I'll bring 20 years of experience and my ever-growing toolbox of exercises and strategies to help people identify ways to better manage their specific struggles with anxiety and mental health.
BIO: Dr. Mike has given over 100 in-person mental health talks and presentations, and has become known for his gift of storytelling in the field. With his PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Florida in 2009, Dr. Mike has been giving presentations in his community and using his experience to influence and inspire! He's been practicing as a Licensed Psychologist since 2010 and specializes in couples therapy where he has become known to heal even the most challenging relationships. Mike recently authored a book on managing anxiety entitled, "I Might Be Busy That Day," filled with relatable stories and easy to digest tips on the human experience of anxiety and relationships. When he's not giving talks and saving relationships, you'll find him at home in Colorado with his wife of 20 years and 3 children, strumming his guitar or seeking out fun hikes or campgrounds.
"Mike has a way of speaking that is interesting and engaging. His stories helped me to understand the concepts more thoroughly. His pace was like walking and enjoying the scenery and not running like you're late for class. I would seek out a presentation by him again!"
"I just wanted to send a note of thanks for your presentation today. I appreciated being included, and thank you for your grace and wisdom. I genuinely felt better after hearing your lecture. What a fantastic gift!"
Patti, university advisor and lecturer

Mark, working professional
"Although I already feel confident on this topic, I really enjoy listening to Dr. Mike and sought out his presentation. I always feel as if there is something new to learn from him!"
Nikki, Assistant Director, Prevention and Wellness
"The most useful thing I learned from Dr. Mike's presentation was that my anxiety doesn't define me; it is something that I experience and can manage. Mike engaged the room and was very easy to listen to."
