(LCSW)

About Me

I get it. Sometimes it's hard being a teen... and sometimes it's hard being the parent of a teen. Not only am I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) licensed in the state of Arizona with over 10 years of counseling experience, but I'm also the father of three boys, two of whom were teens and one that is approaching his teen years.

Although my specialty is working with victims of combat trauma and their families. I have also worked with families in crisis and their children while I was employed with agencies around the Phoenix area.

My counseling style is warm, understanding, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My approach assumes YOU are the expert on you. I am simply a professional helper.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
Mike Radonski

Michael Radonski has a way of making you feel comfortable so you can get your thoughts and feelings out. He also has a sense of understanding and is very helpful at getting to the root of the issue. At the end of each session he gives me things to think about so that I can work on my thoughts and feelings.

The session was super helpful for my 13 year old son to understand himself and for me to hear so that I could understand him too. Thanks Michael!

Mike has been very supportive and has given me many good ideas on how to look at my life differently.

Written by C.H. on Jul 09, 2020 after counseling with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and bipolar disorder

Sets realistic goals, is quick to respond, encourages me, and when I reach a goal vocalizes he is proud.

Written by L.U. on Jul 09, 2020 after counseling with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Michael has made my first counseling experience seamless and warm. He is an incredible listener and thoroughly works through whatever problems or issues I present. He has given me the ability to look at things from a different perspective and has suggested things I can tangibly do for myself outside of counseling. To say I feel lucky to be his patient would be an understatement.

Written by B.R. on May 30, 2020 after counseling with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and bipolar disorder

I've been surprised at how nice this person has been, and how responsive, and I was grateful that he didn't force EMDR, and respected me opening up and doing cognitive behavioral therapy for a while, as I'm going through a rough transition right now. And I have no family to help me with it at all.
