Michael Minnella


I have worked in the Family Support Services Department and the counseling field for the past twenty-eight years. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to develop my skills and expertise in the areas of counseling, individual, group, and family therapy, teaching, crisis intervention, education, and supportive services to individuals and families.

I've worked in many different clinical settings ever since. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through cognitive-behavioral, dialetical, and mindfulness skill building strategies. . Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing {cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness skills) . I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.

I am friendly and easy-going. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.

Look forward to meeting you!
