Michael Van Dam, LCSW, Bountiful, Utah

Michael Van Dam, LCSW, MT-BC, a therapist at  Resilient Solutions, Inc. shares: While Autism does not define a person, knowing that even within the spectrum no person is alike, acknowledging Autistic characteristics can open the door for the individual and for associates to gain insight into the individual's remarkable way of experiencing the world.

I have greatly valued conversations I have had with individuals and families seeking guidance regarding Autism.  These conversations have allowed me to discover minds, hearts and desires that not only yearn to be understood and considered, but once time and space is provided for these persons to be listened to in full, have offered me profound insight not only into those persons way of thinking, feelings, and understanding, but also into my own.  

Michael works with adults and children with mood and behavioral challenges including Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Sexual Addiction.  He assists individuals with Aspergers Syndrome.  He also provides family counseling and parent coaching to strengthen families and family relationships.  Michael integrates client's values into the counseling process and encourages clients to approach their challenges from a faith-based perspective.  His clinical skills include the creative application of therapeutic music, art, literature and play.
