  • I have a passion for working with couples, families, individuals and teenagers by addressing the wholeness of the human person: spiritual, emotional, intellectual and biological. I work with a wide range of clients, including married/engaged couples, individuals working through trauma, anxiety, depression, and/or grief, those experiencing same sex attraction (SSA) and men and women wanting to work through sexual addiction and drug and alcohol problems.  To see my reviews, please click here

    In 2014, I became certified through the Sexual Addiction Treatment Provider Program.  This SATP certification has given me the education to effectively treat men and women struggling with a range of sexual problems from addiction (a term often misunderstood) to pornography usage.  Including practical tools, attachment theory and trauma based interventions, this specialization has helped many break free from the bonds of sexual behavior problems to find real freedom and meaning in their life.

    I worked at Ozanam for several years and specialized in treating adolescent issues, such as depression, self harm, addiction, and oppositional defiance, among others.  This is the venue through which I was licensed and supervised for a period of time.

    Additionally, my practice has grown to the point that I have named it the Center for Healing LLC.  This is exciting news as I have recently hired Chris Ellman LCSW who is also vetted through CatholicTherapists.com.    (My address remains the same along with the website.) 

    For further inquiries or to book an appointment, please call or email me.  

    Also...The Diocese of KC-St Jo has a support group running twice a week called the 'My House Men's Group' Initiative.  A support group for men struggling with pornography and other forms of sexual addiction is available.

    Support groups, Clinical Therapy and Education are available for men, women and families.  If you've had enough, there is hope.

  • Bio:
  • My name is Michael Ciaccio and I grew up in Omaha, NE. I went to Catholic schools in Omaha and then graduated from the University of Kansas.

    Through the St. Lawrence Center at KU, I felt a calling to the priesthood, which led to some time with the Apostles of the Interior Life in Rome, Italy and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, IL - just outside of Chicago.

    I then discerned my true calling to counseling and pursued my profession as a therapist at The Institute for the Psychological Sciences (www.ipsciences.edu) -- an elite Catholic Graduate School which integrates theology, philosophy and psychology.

    I moved to Kansas City, MO, married my wife and provided counseling services at 'Ozanam' between 2010 and 2013. As a residential therapist and the substance abuse therapist, I counseled teenagers and families.

    I have a passion for helping couples, adolescents, individuals, and families by providing counseling that combines the behavioral, emotional, and spiritual dimensions to heal the whole person.
