Why a Career in Counseling?

Michael-Sainz-Headshot-e1499890240319-216x300.jpg

Both Michael and his wife were born in Tucson, Arizona and have been married since 1998. Although raised in different denominations, both had a strong background in the church yet never developed the “relationship” that everyone talked about and the importance of spending time with the Lord. He and his wife invited God to their wedding but not to the marriage. Together, they made every mistake a couple could make. They followed the world’s view of marriage and success.

After moving to Colorado in 2005, their struggle culminated with the ultimate choice: submit to God and learn what He had to say about marriage and family or throw it all away and start over. Fortunately, God got a hold of Michael’s heart and put him on a new path – a better path – with His Son, Jesus Christ.

Michael was accepted to Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado. During his tenure he studied Theology and the integration of counseling theories in the pursuit of counseling couples who are struggling. He graduated with a degree in both Counseling Ministries and Mental Health Counseling.  Michael integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Advanced Brain spotting during his sessions.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock...
— Matthew 7:24-25 (NIV)
