Welcome to Lampost Wellness

If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, excessive worry, addictions, or sadness and loss, I help individuals and couples hear their own story and make sense of their past and feel prepared for a future.

Experience has taught me to provide an environment of trust and safety where you can explore and work through life’s most difficult issues in complete confidence. Together, we have the opportunity to face difficulties, and mindfully enrich your life and relationships.


My journey to become a counselor includes deep personal life experiences that inform my therapeutic vision.

Meet Michael Labbe

I welcome the opportunity to work with you as an individual, couple, or group, in a safe space where we can explore together what the past meant, the present offers, and the future may hold utilizing a variety of empirically validated therapies.

Therapy Services

The goal is to help you surmount the issues that stand as obstacles to your full well-being.

Mike is a talented therapist who genuinely cares about his clients. Through his keen insight and nonjudgmental approach, he has helped me make a series of life changes that have significantly improved my sense of well-being.   


For me, Mike has been the perfect blend of psychotherapist, life coach and friend. He helped me with issues of honesty, fear and isolation. He helped me navigate through some difficult real life problems , whether they be at home , work, or personal relationships.  He helped me get to the light through some dark tunnels. I’d highly recommend Mike Labbe.  


I’ve been seeing Michael for a few years now and I’m so grateful to have him as my therapist. I have dealt with anxiety and depression all of my life so having Michael to help me through my ups and downs has been freeing. I’ve had therapists that stare at the clock but not him. We work on core issues and he gives me great feedback . I highly recommend Michael. 


I started seeing Mike a few months after finding out about my then-husband’s affair. It was one of the most (if not the most) traumatizing events of my life. I felt shattered and lost. Mike helped me tremendously in the rebuild that would take place over the next year. Not only did Mike help me with that particular traumatic event, he also helped me identify my priorities and my goals in life and the obstacles that were holding me back. He helped me identify childhood traumas that are the root of my challenges today. And he gave me a toolbox of practical exercises and advice for everyday stresses and challenges. I trust Mike deeply and have recommended him to many friends who now also see him regularly.


I called Mike one night desperately seeking help getting out of a relationship. He answered and saw me soon after. It’s been about 4 years now and he has become like a second father to me. 


Mike’s counseling is instrumental to my journey of being my best self and living my best life. He incorporates spiritual principles and science into his guidance, which is a perfect combination. I leave our sessions feeling empowered and at ease. 


With his formal training as well as experiential wisdom, Mike has guided me through painful episodes of profound loss. Beyond that he has helped me reach new levels of self-awareness, forgiveness, and acceptance. I’ve been willing to go with him to places in my heart and mind that I would have never gone alone. I can’t imagine navigating these last years without his guidance. 


After 13 years of living with a trauma and trying to work through it on my own, I finally decided to undergo trauma therapy with Mike Labbe. I have to say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

He met me where I was emotionally, and worked with me at a pace that suited my needs and promoted my well being. He gave me a safe place to go to, provided extremely effective exercises, and helped me work through a lot of the shame and guilt I had associated with the trauma that I never imagined would improve.

My work with Mike Labbe has healed me in a way I never thought was possible, and ultimately created a healthier headspace that has allowed me to finally move forward. I only wish I had gone to him 13 years earlier.
