Mike Faiola, MFT Intern

MFT Intern

My name is Mike Faiola. I am currently completing my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Southern California. A native of Los Angeles, I deeply value the cultural diversity that characterizes our city.

I have nearly 20 years experience working as a case manager, residential
counselor, and classroom teacher with unhoused, foster, and low income youth throughout LA County. My professional history also includes extensive work in the film and television industries, where I've experienced the profoundly connective potential of sharing our unique stories. I love music, food, books, the outdoors, and learning about other people. I aspire to collaborate with clients to make therapy a space within which we can be vulnerable, discover new aspects of ourselves, and, yes, even have fun.
