Elk River Office
Mike Carle, MSSW, LICSW
Approach: My approach is strengths based and client-centered. I see the people I work with as people, not as diagnoses. I am known for listening well and asking questions that challenge unhealthy choices that cause destructive patterns in one’s life. I have a specialty in DBT and have led a DBT team since 2008, in addition to directing a clinic for 8.5 years. I attempt to be gently courageous in my approach to helping others seek wellness. I am a vet and enjoy working with vets. I have over 30 years working in the field of therapy and find passion in meeting and working with people in wanting to make changes in their life.
Hobbies: My hobbies are photography, nature, motorcycle riding, yard work and traveling. I love spending time with my wife of 40 years.
Quote: “I find it a joy to work with people that are seeking change. It is a wonderful thing to be witness to personal change and growth. I am honored to take part in this process.”
