Michael DeVoll, M.Ed., LPC-S
I have been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor in a variety of settings for 18 years, but I most enjoy my work in 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.
As a personal-development coach, I am an engaging encourager and an energetic storyteller. I see goodness and strength in everyone, and am dedicated to helping them find and use those strengths to reach their goals. I particularly appreciate the challenges of young men and feel I have honed my skills in helping them work through these particular challenges.
