Michael Badolato is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist providing counseling to individuals, couples and families. A graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies, his heart-centered approach gently and effectively helps individuals release themselves from limiting conditioning and the unconscious beliefs that can undermine their natural desire to live authentically and with purpose. Using his deeply compassionate and mindfulness-based presence, Michael seeks to assist individuals to rediscover the light of their own being, however clouded-over it may feel. Working non-judgmentally he helps individuals reconnect to the source of their true creativity, freedom and joy. As the program director of Broderick Street Residential Treatment Facility for the last 10 years, Michael has extensive experience working with major mental and medical illness and chronic pain. In his private practice, he particularly enjoys working with the spiritual foundations of psychological issues.
