Mike Mulvihill, MS, LPC
Michael has his BA in Psychology from Temple University in 2009 and received his Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling and Psychology from Chestnut Hill College in 2015.
Michael believes that the most important aspect of psychotherapy is the relationship between the client and therapist. While holding his clients with unconditional positive regard, he works to build a safe, trusting, and relaxed environment that includes empathy, compassion, non-judgement, present-awareness, and acceptance. Michael is effective in helping adolescents and adults manage the daily difficulties associated with anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, self-esteem issues, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, stress, burnout, and career planning. He also works well with families and couples to relieve strain, increase positive connection, and to foster healthy communication within relationships. When working collaboratively with his clients, he combines mindfulness practices with the core components of meditation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic modalities.
Michael understands that while a diagnosis can inform treatment, the focus of therapy is on the individuals and the improvement in their quality of life. He works to challenge unhealthy ways of thinking that drive some of the difficulties we encounter in life and provide new skills and tools to proceed on a path of self-enrichment and discovery. Understanding that therapy is not always an easy process, he also helps individuals create work-life balance and healthy self-care practices. Michael’s phone number is 215-947-8654 ext. 150.
