Life is a journey. And on that journey, we will run into challenges along the way. When this happens, we all can use the insight and support of a caring person. Here, you’ll find inspiration to help you reclaim your life. I utilize my training in psychology and social work to assist individuals with functioning at an optimal level as they transcend their challenging situations.

“Thanks Michael for putting together the LGBTQ Family Clinical Issues and Treatment Issues Strategies workshop. It was a great informative and interactive workshop. It opened my eyes of the issues that are going on currently with LGBTQ, and how we can help support our clients and how we can educate the community of LGBTQ.”

“Dr. Gatson’s presentations provide in-depth insight into topics that are not only grounded in Evidence Based Theory, but are instrumental in understanding the institutionalized concepts of implementation of service delivery into practice. The pace and duration of Dr. Gatson’s presentations are great and appropriate. As a result, I have been able to set up trainings using knowledge that I learned from Dr. Gatson’s presentations. I feel more comfortable and confident using the training material that I learned, which has expanded my knowledge and consciousness. More importantly, Dr. Gatson’s ability to keep me engaged due to his warm and genuine personality was fun”.
