ABOUT MIKE

Mike Ensley is a nationally board-certified Licensed Professional Counselor with degrees in Psychology and Counseling. In addition to his years in private practice, he has decades of experience working with recovery groups and mentoring programs.

 

Mike is experienced in multiple modalities including Narrative Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS), and is a fully-trained EMDR therapist.

He started his career path working with various Christian ministries, what he calls a layered experience full of insight, discovery, disillusionment--and most importantly coming face-to-face with the truth of his own story.

During the financial crisis of 2008, Mike was laid off from his job and took a couple years to regroup and rediscover his purpose. 

While waiting tables at Disney World, he pursued a formal education and earned a Bachelor's in Psychology.

 

He then moved to Colorado where he earned a Master's in Counseling while working with teens and young adults with autism, an area in which he continues to volunteer today.

DO YOU TAKE MEDICAID?

I am not a Medicaid Provider. According to Colorado law, Medicaid recipients must see a Medicaid provider for services covered by Medicaid, even if you're planning to pay out of pocket. A list of Colorado therapists who take Medicaid can be found here.

IS THIS CHRISTIAN COUNSELING?

While I'm a Christian and have a background working in faith-based programs, I believe mental and relational healthcare is for everyone. If your faith is a big part of your journey, I am well-informed in these areas. I also enjoy working extensively with people who identify with other faiths or none in particular.

DO YOU ONLY SEE MEN?

Men, women, and teens are all part of the clientele at Comeback Story Counseling. While Men's Issues is one of my specialties and I'm passionate about educating and encouraging men to engage their healing journeys, a lot of women and young people come through my door as well, and are always welcome.

Narrative Therapy

Each of us has been creating a story, even from before we had words to put to it. The Narrative approach explores each person's unique process of deriving meaning from their experiences, thoughts, and emotions. 

 

 It's all about helping you become more aware of the story you have been living, challenging narratives that may be hindering you, and developing skills that bring more intentionality and success to the process--authoring your story as you .

EMDR Therapy

Committed to always growing as a therapist, I chose to invest in training with the EMDR Institute to expand my skillset in addressing unresolved trauma.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) is a powerful, proven therapy that helps treat symptoms of trauma, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. 

EMDR works with your brain's own adaptive processing system to lessen the impact of harmful experiences and more successfully develop inner resources and new behavior patterns.

EMDR is recognized by the American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, US Department of Veteran's Affairs, and the World Health Organization (among many others) as an effective treatment.
