Michael Thaden is a native of central California, born in San Francisco as legend has it, “under the Golden Gate Bridge”.  He somehow survived this feat and grew up in Sacramento. He was an energetic, playful child who struggled to sit still in school.  He attended Del Campo High School where he developed better study habits, and came to excel in Chemistry.  He developed interests in photography, long distance running, backpacking, and nutrition. He attended Humboldt State University, initially majoring in Chemistry, and gradually changed his focus to studies in Psychology, Philosophy, and Art.  He eared his Master's Degree from C.S.U.S. in Counselor Education, Marriage & Family Therapy/Art Therapy.  Michael has worked as a therapist in Sacramento and the surrounding neighborhoods of Carmichael, Citrus Heights, and Fair Oaks for over twenty years in a variety of school and residential treatment settings, and has maintained a private practice since 1997.  He has worked with adolescents, adults, couples, and families impacted by grief/loss, trauma, domestic violence, sexual abuse, chemical/co-dependency, compulsive behavior, anger/impulse control problems, and life role transitions.
