Behavioral Counselor/Mobile Therapist Michael DePaul, from Merakey in State College, PA, received two separate unsolicited parent ‘shout-outs’ in the past month for putting his heart and soul into his work in the Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) program within the Children and Family Services Division. Parents state that they are “highly satisfied with services and have seen huge improvements in their children’s behaviors.” They went on to describe Michael as “patient, kind, and passionate about his kiddos and families he works with!”
Michael started with Merakey in 2013 as a Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS). When he completed his master’s degree, Michael transitioned into the role of Behavioral Specialist/Mobile Therapist in 2019, and last month he received his Board-Certified Behavioral Analyst Certification. Michael has always demonstrated that he will never stop fighting for his families, and his hard work is making a difference in the consumers and families we serve. Thank you, Michael, for all you do at Merakey!
