About Michael Cuhran
Licensed Social Worker
Adult Outpatient Therapist
Hi! I’m Mike, a Licensed Social Worker at our Lawrence & Mercer County offices. I love working with motivated people and am looking forward to seeing if I am a good fit to help you along the next part your life journey.
People, their experiences, and their values have always been important to me. I enjoy working with clients on where they want to see their lives head and how that differs for where they find themselves now. It has been my experience that it is necessary for a person to be able to find a path in their life that is meaningful to them. Once that is established, the therapy process is often a balance of fully seeing that path more clearly while also being able to create the internal room and energy for the personal changes & growth needed to travel this successfully.
Why Work With Me?
In making any significant changes, whether it is learning to play a guitar or changing the dynamics of your relationships, it can be helpful to have someone to partner with you through the process.
Growth and change can be difficult, but if you are looking to make some of those real changes in your life and need someone to match your motivation and drive to grow, I am the right fit for you.
You are the expert in you, and that is the fundamental basis of our work together. As your therapist I would encourage you to share some of the things that you have learned about how your thoughts, experiences, and emotions affect your choices and/or habits and look for ways to make this a smoother process.
We will take those core elements and look more closely at the impact it is having on the quality of your life. We can then work together to test out new approaches, skills, and shifting the way your thoughts impact your sense of self.

Fun Facts about me:
I am a big believer in balance and make quality time in my off time from work a priority. When I am out of the office I enjoy spending my time listening to music, playing the guitar, reading, watching football, playing video games, watching movies, or finding new places to explore.
