Get to Know Me

Hi, I'm Michael Arreygue! (he/him)

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist intern (MFT-I) under the supervision of Sarah Barr, Ph.D., CPC and Jennifer Ross, Ph.D., MFT. I have practiced therapy with adults, couples, families and young children. What I love most is being with people and reminding them that they are not alone. Sometimes, all we need is to feel heard and seen to keep us going.   

I have a Scorpio Moon and am INFJ which prompts my love to dive deep into our existential wonderings, relationships, and meaning around our purpose for being here. Some of this exploration has come from my own experiences around my Queer and Latino identities.

I would be honored to connect with you on your journey!
