Michael Plattenburg


About Me

I am an independently licensed social worker as well as an ordained minister. I focus on a holistic approach to mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. It is my belief that we are complicated beings and that God has a plan for each of us. I have been a practicing therapist for over 5 years and have spent my entire career working with families, children, and adults discover freedom and gain control over their mental, emotional, and spiritual concerns and dilemmas.

My focus in sessions is to listen, hear, provide feedback, and help my clients build road maps for success to their individual goals. No person is identical and obstacles are identical; therefore, I truly believe in tailoring my clients' services to their individual needs. I have a great deal of experience with helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, addiction, anger, PTSD, and grief and loss concerns.

Past clients have remarked to me and others I have worked alongside about how I genuinely expressed my compassion for their overall welfare. I focus on the entire person from a holistic perspective, which means I do not just focus on the mental or emotional aspect of a person's dilemma, but also include their social, cultural, religious/spiritual, and intrapersonal relationship to bring clients back to a state of balance.
