Buckminster Fuller described tensegrity as the balance to be found within systems under tension. When we are resourced and grounded, this “tension” can feel propulsive and useful; when we are overwhelmed or disoriented, it can feel suffocating, oppressive, and unsafe. To move through this suffering, therapy can provide a resource that leads to insight, empowerment, and authenticity.
My name is Conor Mitchell. I am an artist and musician, a father and co-parent, and a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern. I believe in the power of therapy, mindfulness, mentorship, and ritual to change lives (they've certainly changed mine).
I am a two-time alumnus of the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Comparative Religions/English and a Specialist in Education/Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. I began my clinical experience in a residential addiction treatment center where I found deep satisfaction in service work and participating in the recovery efforts of inpatient and outpatient clients.
I have previously worked in various careers including art, poetry, music, and plenty of desk jobs. I also lived in Southeast Asia for several years studying meditation and contributing to sustainable architecture, farming, and cultural preservation efforts.
While joy in life is a birthright, it often lies dormant in the face of obstacles. I can help you encounter these obstacles to discover growth, opportunity, and a more accurate sense of self. I work with a broad spectrum of humans who may feel stuck or victimized in a variety of ways. I am trauma and addiction informed and affirming of all belief systems and identities. My goal is to tune into your inherent resilience, resourcefulness, and capacity for healing to turn wounds into gifts.
I look forward to discovering your innate genius and witnessing your growth. Together, we can co-create a therapeutic path forward that allows you to work through (as opposed to bypassing) what you find troubling, hurtful, or no longer useful.
Let’s find the next right step together.
