Mikael really helped me through a very sudden and stressful time. Our time was short as I just moved out of Texas but I highly recommend this therapist. Very professional!

Hi there, my name is Mikael and I am a trained psychotherapist in the state of Texas. I’m so glad that you’re here and considering therapy!
Maybe you have a sense of what’s bothering you, or like many others, maybe you don’t. My clients often report feeling a sense of general unease without really understanding why. For some, this feeling is more of a whisper, haunting them quietly as they make it through yet another day. For others, the feeling is unbearably loud, sometimes to the point where it’s hard or even impossible to get out of bed in the morning. Maybe you feel similarly. Perhaps your romantic relationships or friendships aren’t as satisfying as you’d like them to be, or maybe you’re at your wits’ end with certain family members or coworkers. Maybe there are parts of yourself that you dislike or even despise. Perhaps you just want to be able to enjoy yourself again, even just the little things. Depression, anxiety, fear, emptiness…these feelings can build on each other and rob you of an otherwise good and enjoyable life. Like most people, you probably want to feel some sense of hope that things can be different. I believe that they can be different.
A little bit about myself: I grew up in Sweden, hence why my name is spelled a little differently. I enjoy music, coffee, reading, all things nature, good food, and spending time with my family. I graduated with a Master of Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh in 2017, and I have over 5 years of post-graduate clinical experience working for well-known medical centers and also private practice. As for my treatment approach, my goal is to first and foremost provide you with a safe space to talk about anything you want. If you’ve never been to therapy before, I think you’ll find much relief in simply having an unbiased person with whom you can share anything you’d like. Together, we will do everything from addressing and solving the more obvious concerns in your life, to diving deeper and discovering the more hidden sources of your pain. Regardless of how deep you want to go, we will make progress. If even a small part of you is curious to see how things could be different, I truly hope we get the chance to work together.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
