About Mike Longacre

Let’s admit it, life is hard, and with these difficulties come suffering. Seeking counseling for this suffering is sometimes a very scary and difficult endeavor. I admire your bravery in seeking help, and pride myself on providing a non-judgmental, accepting, and comfortable space to explore and work on these struggles together.

I approach therapy through a person-centered approach. This simply means- therapy is for you. We will work together in exploring what you want out of therapy, what you need each session, and what is and isn’t working for you. Holding no agenda or biases on how therapy should go, we can co-create a relationship and therapeutic process that works for you.

My path to becoming a therapist started with my own struggles with anxiety and depression, which led me to a path of healing and self-discovery. While you and I may not have experienced the same things in life, nor have the same exact struggles, I believe that through my own suffering and subsequent healing I can be a more empathetic and understanding therapist.
