At Fairbanks Biofeedback & Counseling, Mike provides individual, couple, family, and group therapy, working with both adults and children. His treatment philosophy is based on a bio/psycho/social model which integrates clinical social work, behavioral medicine, and health psychology. This approach emphasizes that behavior can be relearned. A collaborative relationship is developed to address ways to increase learning and mastery of skills to gain better control. Strategies are taught to keep the skills active and prevent relapse.
