Michael Hayes, MS Licensed Professional Counselor
As a counselor, it is an honor to come alongside you in your story, and assist you in figuring out the next chapter and the overall arca of where you want it to go based on the values that are most important to you. Together we will work to identify places where you have become stuck, or perhaps where you have become your own worst enemy, and over time I will help you develop a fresh perspective of your identity and new skills for tackling the problems of life.
I have a MS in Community Mental Health Counseling from Western Carolina University, eight years’ experience working in community mental health settings, and 20 years’ experience of leadership in various church settings such as Celebrate Recovery, teaching marriage enrichment conferences and classes, and facilitating men’s groups. I have a passion for helping individuals and couples sort through relational and emotional conflicts. I have experience helping people overcome addictions related to alchohol, drugs, pornography and sex. I have walked alongside people who struggle through job and life transitions, and grieving losses while finding hope.
If you feel like a spectator to your own story, if you are tired of living on the fringes of life, or if you feel like it’s all getting out of control, I want to assure you that you aren’t alone and that there is hope. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you.
