Joseph Michael's bio

This content was provided by Joseph Michael "Joseph W. Michael retired from a twenty year enlisted and officer career in the United States Army as a Captain of the Chemical Corps. He served with distinction in the Gulf War (Operations Desert Sheild and Desert Storm), being awarded a Meritorious Service Medal and a Bronze Star. Prior to his own military service, he moved frequently with his Air Force family headed by Master Sergeant Jack W. Michael, his father. He graduated High School in Merced, CA in 1972, reporting for Basic Combat Training at Fort Ord, CA that same June. Following "retirement," Captain Michael returned to school, first earning his Bachelor of Arts degree at Jacksonville State University at Jacksonville, AL. Moving to Chico, CA, he then persued and achieved a Marter of Science degree in Psychology, begining the long journey from graduation to licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Marriage and Family Therapist Licensure requires and initial gathering of 2000 hours of supervised practice, followed by a written examination of general knowledge essential to the practice of psychotherapy, and finally a comprehensive written clinical vignette examination to test the applicant's ability to apply that knowledge throughout multiple scenarios. This last exam is particularly challenging in that many of the questions were followed by multiple correct answers, but only one best correct answer. He passed this exam on his first effort on March 25th, 2005. Joseph Michael lives with his wife of 40 years on a small farm in Tehama County, where they grow prunes and raise and show Borzoi (Russian Wolfhounds),chickens, turkeys, ducks, a guinea fowl, and two spoiled cats. two cats. His two children, Tricia and Jeremy, are former soldiers themselves, both supporting the post 9/11 war in Iraq and Jeremy having deployed twice with the 82d Airborne Division. From Staff Sergeant Michael (1980) to Captain Michael (1985), from Mister to Master, his favorite title is one used by some of his youngest clients, "Farmer Joe.""
