Having over nineteen years of experience. Dr. Flores likes to encourage others to reach out to him in order to assist them with their mental health and emotional wellness goals.

Michael’s clinician passion bore out of his interest in what drives human behavior and how it either helps or hinders the individual. Having witnessed his grandmother’s subsequent mental decline from Alzheimer’s disease left him powerless to assist her. This event created the desire in him to learn more about the brain’s function and the interplay between thoughts and emotions, leading him to pursue a personal educational imperative to complete his doctoral studies and subsequently applying all that he had learned to assist as many people as possible.

Dr. Flores enjoys working with individuals, couples, children, adolescents, families and strives to assist them with their needs. In his downtime, he enjoys reading, watching movies, walking his dog, and spending quality time with his fiance, Michelle.
