It's Ok not to be Ok"... Hello! I'm Michael Love, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a specialty in Advanced Clinical Practice. I'm a ten year Navy Veteran and former Police Officer with fifteen years of experience. My specialty are Veterans and First Responders. The most important aspect of effective communication is the ability to listen to what is being said, and not just waiting to reply. " We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak"Epictetus.
I incorporate Jon Kabat-Zinn's research on mindfulness, Brene Brown's work on vulnerability as courage, and Esther Perel's insights on family and partner relationships. “If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your perspective.” -Maya
My goal is to ensure that every client has the tools they need to be their best, and to reach a point where they can utilize the skills learned in therapy. "When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too -Paulo Coelho.
