A little about Choice Theory Reality Therapy Psychology...
Mike applies the principles of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy to help people learn how to be happy. His work is based upon that of Dr. William Glasser, M.D. who created both Reality Therapy and Choice Theory. Michael is certified in both of these modalities. Dr. Glasser states: “All we do from birth until death is behave, and all behavior is chosen.”

In addition to private practice, speaking engagements and authoring, Mike also served as President of the William Glasser Institute West Region from December 2013 to December, 2016.

The Ten Axioms of Choice Theory


   1. The only person whose behavior we can control is our own.

   2. All we can give another person is information.

   3. All long-lasting psychological problems are relationship problems.

   4. The problem relationship is always part of our present life.

   5. What happened in the past has everything to do with what we are today, but we can only satisfy our basic needs right now and plan to continue satisfying them in the future.

   6. We can only satisfy our needs by satisfying the pictures in our Quality World.

   7. All we do is behave.

   8. All behavior is Total Behavior and is made up of four components: acting, thinking, feeling and physiology.

   9. All Total Behavior is chosen, but we only have direct control over the acting and thinking components. We can only control our feeling and physiology indirectly through how we choose to act and think.

  10. All Total Behavior is designated by verbs and named by the part that is the most recognizable.
