About Michael Gibbons
Michael is a passionate clinician with over 15 years of experience in mental health and the psychiatric community.
He received a Master of Science degree in Nursing from Northeastern University and his Nurse Practitioner certification in 2016. Since then, he has served the MetroNorth and North Shore communities through Eliot Community Human Services, providing psychiatric support to patients with a wide range of conditions at various stages of treatment, from individual outpatient treatment to team-based systems and crisis stabilization.
As the Director of Nursing for Adult Psychiatry at Eliot’s Community Behavioral Health Center in Danvers, MA, Michael provided leadership and supervised the training of other NPs while continuing to perform clinical duties. In combination with his work as a Nurse Practitioner, Michael values his prior experience providing group therapy and milieu counseling at McLean Hospital.
He has worked with transitional-age youth and adult patients of all backgrounds and conditions, including but not limited to trauma challenges, mood and anxiety disorders, OCD, perceptual disturbance, personality disorders, and substance use. Although healing and relief can occur at any age, Michael appreciates the benefit of engaging in treatment earlier in life and enjoys the opportunity to work with adolescents as they navigate their way toward adulthood.
Michael’s many other interests include supporting social justice initiatives and spending time in nature. Michael enjoys listening to music and playing bass guitar and other instruments- and especially jamming with others!
