Michael Radloff

Radloff_Internship PhotoHello all! I am grateful for the opportunity to complete my counseling internship with Awen Therapy and to be able to some great work with individuals and partners. I am currently in the process of completing my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Wisconsin -Whitewater with an emphasis in marriage and family counseling. 

As a counselor in training, I have experiences working with diverse clients from the community who wished to explore a variety of counseling issues. I have particular interests working with individuals/partnerships who are experiencing changes, stresses, loss/grief, anxiety, depression, relationship-related issues, and/or other complex life/partnership issues. Finally, I also hold a certification as a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator, a counseling intervention that works to  improve communication and conflict resolution skills for partners.

It is my mission as a counselor to provide a quality safe space for clients to be open and become deeply engaged with the counseling process. I aim to be a sex and kink-positive, LGBTQIA+-friendly, and multicultural competent counselor in order to truly understand my clients’ experiences. From my perspective, the counseling relationship and trust between a client and counselor is extremely important for counseling to be successful. Overall, I take a person-centered approach to counseling and often integrate techniques that target an individual’s thoughts and behaviors regarding their issues. As counselor and client, we can work together to make the counseling process meaningful for you.

I am looking forward to working with you! Feel free to contact me via e-mail at radloffcounseling@gmail.com or by calling (608) 509-4997 to schedule an appointment.
