I’m Michael Greene, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I came into this field as a second career (see bio) and have developed a fairly diverse practice, working with people of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. To be honest, the range of people I see and the various issues we discuss are two of the things I most enjoy about my work.
There are many worthwhile psychological theories (as well as good therapists practicing them). The key for the client is to find someone they feel comfortable with and think can be of assistance to them. I tend to establish a good personal rapport and project a fairly practical outlook that combines mindfulness with a cognitive behavioral approach. Fundamentally, my goal is developing an effective collaboration with the client(s) to help them gain greater insight and an enhanced ability to deal with the issues they face. In addition to being committed to providing a high quality service as my job, given that each interaction is unique and tailored to the specific person, this work provides consistent learning opportunities for me as well.
