About Me

As a therapist and social activist, I have a passion for supporting other world changers in being able to care for themselves while they do the hard work of making the world a better place. I have spent my career in the trenches of community and social activism. I have a passion for helping others and personally experienced the emotional toll this work can have on your personal life. As a person of faith, my work is grounded in my own spirituality but I also realize this does not safeguard us from compassion fatigue. I can help my clients to navigate the stresses of life to find ways to connect to natural and community based supports. My goal is to help my clients to embrace their sense of call to their vocation, while also learning to balance other parts of their lives with outlets for joy and creativity in order to combat stress, depression and anxiety.

Rev. Adams, I have had 3 sessions to date, and considering the fact it is only a relatively short amount of time since we started to talk, I have found that I am able to think differently about several aspects of my situation.

I've only been counselled by Rev. Greser Adams for 2 and a half weeks and we've only had one session so far but her friendliness and interest in my well-being are very apparent and I believe that our professional relationship will be productive going forward.
