Mike Hinds - Therapist
Mike has worked primarily with children and adolescents since graduating in Marriage and Family Therapy at BYU, with an emphasis on helping parents understand and effectively manage their children's symptoms. Before joining Avalon Hills, Mike worked in various types of treatment programs (e.g., in-home treatment for youth, anger management, couples therapy) and extensively trained and supervised therapists.
Mike is a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and is an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. He has taught graduate and undergraduate courses on child development, parenting, counseling theories, human sexuality, and counseling supervision. He came to Avalon because Avalon's philosophy and practices make it a place he would trust to send one of his own daughters for treatment.
Mike is married and has three teenage daughters and an affectionate golden retriever. In his spare time he loves to read and is part of a writing group. He has a passion for dual sport motorcycles and he zealously follows the Dakar Rally each January.
