About this pro

You’re looking for help because you’re pretty sure your past is intruding on your present. You’re reacting in ways that aren’t helpful. Your situation would probably be difficult for anyone, but you’re pretty sure that your past is making it more difficult than it needs to be. You can see where this is going, and it’s a trip you’d rather not take. But it seems like no matter how hard you try you end up doing the same things again and again and again… You CAN stop. You can give up the wrong relationships, the destructive patterns, the addictions, the anger, the trauma from your past.

My specialty is unearthing underlying patterns. We will work together. In my office, you’ll find the connection and help you've been looking for. And it will be at a pace that's not overwhelming. You’ll learn how you got here, you'll discover that your responses made sense at the time and you'll learn to make room for new, more effective behaviors.  
I’ve got the usual degrees, but I also have a bunch of post-graduate training that will provide you with unique tools. Sometimes our patterns are stored in parts of the brain that can’t talk - we’ve got tools for that! Also, I've worked at some of the top trauma treatment facilities on earth - no matter what your story, I'll handle it with grace.

    Greg, thanks so much for this - I've shared our work with a lot of folks, as I am still telling everyone I know how LIFE changing working with you and learning these techniques has been for me. Could not be doing the trip I'm going on now without all the work we've done!!! SO GRATEFUL!!

    I can see huge permanent changes in my sister from the therapy – she has lost that chip on her shoulder that she carried pretty much since toddler-hood. She no longer gets unreasonably angry or overreacts. In fact, about six months ago, she said that when someone says something that would have put her into a rage in the past, she said, “Now, I just puzzle over it.” How cool is that!?

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We start with an intake interview that lasts 50 minutes.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a master's degree in counseling, 15 years experience in the field and several years of post-graduate training in attachment, depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationships.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My standard rate is $185 an hour. I do not work with insurance companies directly, but I am independently licensed so you can get reimbursed for our services in many instances.


How did you get started in this business?

I chose to become a therapist because therapy was deeply helpful to me and I wanted to offers others the same experience.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have extensive experience with PTSD, trauma, anxiety and depression.  I’m also quite effective with people struggling in relationships. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Hire a specialist. When we finished graduate school therapists are generalist. Find someone with postgraduate training in the area that you’re looking for help in.

Also, remember that insurance companies don’t pay very well. Therapists with more experience will often choose not to work with insurance companies. Although your out of pocket  with cash pay clinician might be more upfront, there’s a good chance that your issue will resolve more quickly.
