Michael Daley is a Licensed Master Social Worker who brings a client-centered, strengths-based, and empathetic approach to his work with clients.
Michael graduated from Loyola University Maryland with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration and began his professional career as an auditor for Ernst & Young LLP and later as a senior accountant for Charterhouse Group, Inc., private equity firm in New York City.
After the events of September 11, 2001, Michael felt called to serve and became a firefighter with the Fire Department of the City New York. While serving the citizens of New York City, Michael began to take an interest in the mental health difficulties and social issues he witnessed so many individuals struggling with. This interest became a new calling for Michael, and he returned to school to become a social worker and earned a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Connecticut.
As a graduate student, Michael had the opportunity to intern in a variety of settings serving a diverse range of populations. His experience ranged from co-facilitating therapy groups at an adult intensive outpatient program for those with mood disorders and co-occurring disorders, to helping the elderly obtain services to meet their needs, to supporting the young men who come to Causeway as a Futures Coach and Therapeutic Mentor.
Michael brings his passion for serving others to his work with his clients at Causeway and sees the potential in every client he works with. Michael draws on not only his clinical knowledge but also his extensive life experiences to help understand his clients in order to best support them in achieving their goals and finding meaning and fulfillment in their lives.
