Most importantly, Mitchell seeks to simply create an easygoing, enjoyable, and even, entertaining, atmosphere. Mitchel likes to point out that society’s perception of counseling is outdated and often wrong. In counseling, you receive guidance, insight, and even have fun…. The experience is not about telling you what you are doing wrong, but rather figuring out what you are doing right and using that to recreate parts of life you want to revise.
Mitch’s mission in life is to bring light and life to everyone he meets. Mitchell relies on establishing a healing presence for all his clients, and this becomes the bedrock of services. Mitchell is described as “laid-back and relaxed” and we can attest to his easy-going nature and kind personality. Historically, his clients have stated that he made them “feel comfortable” at all times.
