Areas of Focus:

As a psychotherapist, Michael Cummings believes relationships are at the heart of all human experiences. His approach nurtures the creation of a therapeutic relationship based on respect and trust as a safe context in which all other relationships, both past and present, can be explored. A unique and personalized therapeutic process develops and looking through this relational lens together, the client brings into focus new awareness and a limitless ability for personal growth.

Michael specializes in providing treatment and support for adults, adolescents and couples experiencing both everyday and complex life challenges. He has an affinity for working in the contexts of relationship difficulties, life and career transitions, male issues (working alongside both men, women and couples), trauma, grief and bereavement. Michael values his relational abilities and experience working with depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar diagnoses.
