I began Global Counseling Network for two main reasons. First, I want to help people who are in need. I have been in domestic and rural situations that were not only challenging, but also isolating. And second, I simply want to see people become more fully human; more fully who they are designed to be.

Mike Sense

M.Div., and MA of Counseling

Founder and Director of Global Counseling Network



Whether it is individuals or couples, Mike sees building relationships as paramount to healing and wholeness in all areas of life. If a relationship is not built, trust and safety will not exist, thus stunting growth. He desires others to experience wholeness, feeling cared for, loved, connected with and challenged. This has inspired the founding of Global Counseling Network and the endeavor to see standards of care change for those in places with limited access.
