    My name is Michael C. Gardner. I received my Bachelor of Art in Psychology, Master of Science in Education with a focus on School Counseling, and received my Certificate of Advanced Study in Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in the Foster Care System with New York Foundling, focusing on adolescents in crisis. I have worked at Mount Sinai Hospital as a Care Coordinator in the Health Home Program, focusing on adults suffering from inadequate care of physical and mental health. I spent the last seven years working in New York City Department of Education High Schools helping teens find their voice in and out of the classroom. 

    I’ve gained knowledge of different therapeutic techniques such as Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Functional Family Therapy, Reality Therapy, and more. I also have knowledge of NYC school systems and ways to navigate them using Social Emotional Learning. I have knowledge of Career Counseling, Mental Health First Aid, LBGTQIA+ advocacy and more.
