Mike Dean, LMFT
Hi! My name is Mike and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I live in Mesa, AZ with my wife and two children. Playing drums and music has been an important aspect of my life and I enjoy listening to or creating music as this brings some balance to my life. In my spare time I like cheering for my favorite teams in football, basketball, and soccer. I have been providing therapy for over 10 years with individuals, couples, and families. Since a young, age I have been curious about what leads to people being who they are. This has led to me developing an approach to therapy of guiding you along a process of developing a better understanding of yourself, your relationships, and why you might find yourself “stuck” in the same patterns repeatedly that are leading to you wanting to make a change in your life. I am passionate about providing people a safe space to heal from trauma they have experienced by using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I also have completed additional, specialty training on treating trauma-related dissociation. I really enjoy working with couples and utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples understand underlying emotional experiences and experience new ways of interacting with one another. I also believe people deserve to be their authentic selves and am passionate about being a safe support to the LGBTQIA+ community.
