MICHAEL RAITT MA LMHC
I have been in practice since 2000. In my experience, clients come to me with questions about themselves and/or situations they find themselves in. They often want ideas and strategies to help them with relationship dynamics, stressors in their life, and/or substance use/abuse concerns. My style is inquisitive and interactive. I share patterns, education, insights, and metaphor to assist clients.
I base my work on the following philosophies and practices:
-- INSIGHT: I actively engage with clients in developing their insights to form strategies to reach their personal goals
-- RESPECT: Clients come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. I don't judge where clients have been, rather, I work with them in support of
reaching the goals they have set for themselves
-- DIGNITY: The experience of feeling welcome, valued, and accepted -- crucial for those who have experienced negative judgment from other professionals.
