My Practice

My name is Mike Shelafoe, I am a fully licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Marquette, Michigan. I hold a Master’s Degree from the School of Social Work at Michigan State University.


I offer supportive and strength based psychotherapy. As a solution focused therapist, I aid individuals as they learn to recognize and understand unhealthy or self-destructive patterns and/or behaviors in their lives. Through this recognition it is possible to identify positive direction(s) for change. I can then assist with the construction of a clear vision of where the individual wants to be and help to set goals to facilitate that change.

I have many years of experience working with at-risk students and with students in a school-based mental health program. In addition,  I have experience working with children and adults in individual, couple and family settings with a wide range of issues including; depression and anxiety, parenting support, grief, work and career issues, stress and anger management, addiction and recovery as well as conflict resolution.

You can call (906) 869-3082 or send an e-mail to for an appointment.
