The retreat will be facilitated by Michael DeVoll, M.Ed., LPC-S, a professional counselor with over 16 years of experience working with young men in a variety of settings.
In his therapy practice, DeVoll specializes in working with men in their mid-20s, many of whom feel disconnected and adrift in their post-college years. These days, many young working professional men feel as if they don’t know where they are headed in their lives. They have a sense that they should be on a specific path. However, they don’t know where that path might lead them, and they feel as if they are on the path all by themselves. Let Michael DeVoll and the Pathfinders Retreat help you.
Michael DeVoll, M.Ed., LPC-S
I have been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor in a variety of settings for 16 years, but I most enjoy my work in a private practice. It is in this context that I really get to know my clients more deeply and help them better understand themselves. As a therapist, I feel there’s a dichotomy to the work I do. The first part is the psycho-educational component: teaching my clients to understand more about how their mind works, and the various facets of their lives that influence that process. Then there’s the therapeutic component: helping the client to make changes in how they think and behave to have better outcomes in their lives. Through collaborative goal setting, we can map out a plan to help the client attain those goals. I particularly appreciate the challenges of adolescents and young adults, and feel I have honed my skills in helping them work through those particular challenges.
