About Michael A. Petrosky

Greetings! My name is Dr. Michael Petrosky, EdD, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida. I am an accomplished, multi-faceted clinician with expertise in crisis intervention, various psychotherapeutic modalities for the overall wellness of those with mental health conditions and an extensive background working with diverse client populations within the mental health field.

My educational accomplishments include holding a PhD in (Philosophy & Religious Studies), Universal Life Church, Modesto, CA, 2018., as well as an EdD (Counselor Education & Supervision) from Argosy University in Sarasota, Florida as well as a Master of Arts (M.A.) Mental Health Counseling, from Argosy University, & a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology from Saint Leo University. He is also a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider & a State of Florida Qualified Supervisor (Registered Mental Health Counseling Interns).

My clinical passion is the following: Intrigued by what drives human behavior and how it either helps or hinders the individual. I witnessed my grandmother’s subsequent mental decline from Alzheimer disease and felt so powerless to assist her. This event created the desire in him to learn more about the brain’s function and the interplay between thoughts and emotions, leading him to pursue personal & educational imperative to complete his doctoral studies and subsequently apply all he has learned to assist as many people as possible.

Professional Experience:

I have expertise in crisis intervention, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other psychotherapeutic modalities.” He has worked with adults, couples, families, and children throughout his career. I enjoys working with all client populations. A dedicated mental health professional with 21 years of experience who encourages others to reach out to assist them with their mental health and emotional wellness goals. My specialties include: (Depression, Anxiety, Stress management, Self-esteem, Life transitions, Anger management, Relationship issues, PTSD). I thrive in ensuring my clients feel that they are “in good hands” through our working therapeutic relationship.

It is important to me that my clients feel understood as well as heard and that our connection is based on trust, hope, and faith that we can get there together. Our partnership will allow you to understand what you are experiencing, whether it is your first-time seeking counseling, or you have had previous experience, grounding your own sense of who you are, the reason you feel the way you do and how to make the change you desire. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, trauma-informed, and psychodynamic therapy. I will also accommodate your specific needs, “meeting you where you are at” while encouraging you to be “the best you”. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!)

A little bit about myself:

(EG. – Outside of my professional role, I have a passion for various interests and activities. I enjoy learning new things & always look for opportunities to broaden my horizons as best as I can. I enjoy reading books of various genres & I am also a member of a local paranormal entity research group, that included individuals from all walks of life, which is very intriguing while, enriching my life but also contributes to my ability to connect with clients on different levels and understand the importance of self-care and balance.)
