My Approach to Helping
My name is Gregory, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families who struggle with depression, anxiety, mental health disorders, spiritual and faith issues, grief and loss, trauma, anger, marital issues, divorce, and substance abuse/dependence.
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you get to the root of your struggles, your trials, and/or your pain from the past, and to bring to light the negative patterns from the past that impact the present so you can have more hope and live a life of fulfillment and purpose.
Regarding couples counseling, I believe that most marriages can be restored, renewed, and revitalized, even when spouses are in conflict, unhappy, or demoralized. My first stance is to explore how a couple can repair their marriage and find the path to a healthier relationship through healthy communication and healthy boundaries.
Other theoretical frameworks I have been trained in and current practice are the Evidence-Based Practices of Seeking Safety, Motivational Interviewing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
If you are looking for guidance and support through brokenness, sadness, or a challenging situation in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your life goals. Let us walk down the path of transformation together and explore new possibilities for your life.
I received my first master’s degree in counseling psychology at National University, and I received my second master’s degree in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. My interests outside of work include spending time with my family, gardening, golf, and reading.
