Dedicated to Your Recovery And Happiness 

 

Michael Cerreto MS, CPCRT, CSC, LDR, Edu-K

Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapist, and Sports and Performing Arts Psychology Counselor, A Talented Mind Clinic, Richmond, Virginia. Serving adolescents and adults in the West End, Downtown, and Southside areas of Richmond.

I have dedicated my career to helping people just like you and your family come back from adversity and create the life they want. I provide a highly specialized therapy program in person at A Talented Mind Clinic in Richmond, Virginia and remotely in North America and Europe. This is not your average therapy experience. I use a proven, six-step roadmap that includes hands-on, creative activities and daily practice to help you and your family recover and thrive. You go from saying “I can’t” to “I can.”

In addition to over 20 years of experience and many university classrooms, my real-life experiences help me better understand what you are going through and guide you along the way.
 

Like you, I lived a life filled with setbacks, doubts, adjustments, success, and fulfillment. These experiences, along with my professional experience, created rich learnings for me and help me understand the road you are on.

I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults for over 20 years. I bring real-life experience along with degrees and certifications put to work for you. As a father of three sons, I bring “on the field” learning to my therapy. In my family life, I have continually explored ways to help my family in their ever-changing lives.

I grew up in a large, multi-generational home and had to overcome a reading disability, shyness, and the ups and downs of being a national-level athlete. I eventually transcended my setbacks to became highly successful in school and a two-time All-American athlete.

I learned how to work hard, adjust to struggles, overcome obstacles and doubt, and never give up. These experiences make me highly empathetic, understanding, and supportive of you, your family, and everyone I have the honor to help.

You can achieve far more than you ever imagined. You have it inside of you. The roadmap and support I provide is a guide to harness your potential and create the life you want.
 

Live Up To Your Full Potential

Everyone has their life story. But what I learned, not just from sitting in a university classroom but from being in life, is that everyone can achieve far more than ever imagined. With the right support and guidance, you can reach your full potential and get everything you want in life.

I stay on the cutting edge of cognitive rehabilitation and sports science research and practices to create a proven roadmap for you to rebound and enhance your life.  I am an avid backpacker, kayaker, fisherman, writer, and artist.

Ready to learn how I can help you and your family come back from adversity?
