Hello, my name is MARK. I'm a licensed psychotherapist and clinical social worker in Iron Mountain, MI. I have 30+ years of clinical experience to help you.
My friendly certified Therapy Dog, "Maury" recently retired - sorry, he no longer works at the office with me. (Photo: Maury as a pup; he'll be 14 in April 2021!)
Please EXPLORE the website & email me if you have questions (mark@ this website domain)
Here's Maury again. He's still a playful, affectionate yellow lab, but
retired after 13 great years of comforting all who walked in the door.
We'll help you learn to relax...

Maybe you've already tried psychotherapy (with a licensed professional), tried anti-depressant medication, tried numerous self-improvement efforts... mileage varies greatly, and many times the 2nd or 3rd effort helps dramatically more: try another psychotherapist, doctor, medication, take a class, join a club, try new hobbies, seek a new job, make more social efforts... any or all of the above. If you don't find therapy helpful, TELL your therapist so s/he can modify their approach. Same goes for my past patients - I'll try my best to help you, but am not the least bit offended if you find another therapist whom you find more helpful. .
