Mike Mihalas, LCSW offers individual psychotherapy to adults and teens. He is focused on promoting mental wellness and treating the conditions that contribute to ones present day problems and dissatisfaction. Mike Mihalas has been a practicing therapist since 2011 and received his graduate degree from the University of Southern California's School of Social Work. He is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma focused cognitive hehavioral therapy (TF-CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and completed two years of supervised training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Working Together

We will focus on increasing self understanding, managing upsetting or difficult thoughts and emotions, and exploring what is observable on a surface level as well as what may be happening unconsciously that perpetuates unwanted patterns, self-sabotage or troubling issues. This approach to therapy is helpful for individuals looking to develop a deeper sense of oneself or for those who have had therapy before and are looking for more depth.

Common therapy goals with Mike Mihalas: symptom relief, improved insight, greater personal agency, a strong and cohesive sense of self, higher self-esteem, improved boundaries, becoming unstuck, recognizing and handling emotions, access to joy, finding purpose, freedom to feel pleasure and serenity, and a capacity for love, work, and mature dependence.

You can expect to speak freely without being told what to do or be given advice. Sessions are 45 minutes long and you will determine the pace and depth of our conversation. Please note that my dog Luke attends sessions.
