Michael Madormo, M.Ed, has over a decade working in education as a teacher, counselor, camp director, and teacher coach in public and private school settings in New York, New Jersey and Palestine. While working in education, he has been active in anti-racist and Palestine solidarity organizing, a practitioner of yoga and meditation at the Brooklyn Zen Center. Joining Critical Therapy, Michael is using his teaching experience to expand and enhance our training curriculum and classes, while focusing on the administrative and organizational structure policies to help with the growth of the Center.
His experiences in education, activism, and spiritual practice led him to believe in integrated approaches to healing and the conviction that personal and systemic transformation are interconnected. In his approach to psychotherapy, Michael integrates interpersonal psychodynamic work with mindfulness-based practices and a commitment to social justice.
Michael completed undergrad from Boston College, a Masters in Education (M.Ed.) at the University of Hawaii School of Education, and is currently pursuing his Masters in Social Work (MSW) degree from the Silberman School at Hunter College.
