Mental Health

Michael graduated with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Union Institute and University, and interned in a residential substance abuse program in the mid-west.


Are you and/or your loved ones struggling with life, work, family, or school? Michael Cummings can help. His focus is on utilizing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)  therapy to help adults overcome the events, irrational beliefs, and past emotionally charged memories that are holding them back from living a full life.


EMDR has been shown to be useful for PTSD, anxiety, panic attacks and phobias; chronic illness and medical trauma, depression and bipolar disorder, grief and loss, dissociative disorders, pain, performance anxiety, and others.


“I believe therapy should be focused on helping you identify and develop the tools to grow while showing respect, recognizing sensitivities, and being honest, however blunt it may seem. Therapy, is your journey, and I will help you progress and move forward.” says Michael.
