About me

Therapy is a chance for you to gain insight into your personal journey through life. I am committed to creating a safe and accepting space during our sessions. I aim to help you accomplish your goals and face the challenges you share in therapy. Providing dignity and worth including evidence-based care remain at the center of my work.

I have expertise in anxiety, depression, conflict resolution, and trauma-related challenges. My work is informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), attachment theory (how we connect to others and ourselves) and mindfulness (awareness and acceptance). I use a variety of different therapeutic approaches based on the individual and their needs.

Gary is a super calm and mellow person. I am able to talk with him and not feel judged. I would recommend him to anyone that asked.

Gary has so far been one of the best therapist I have ever had after the 2-3 I’ve experienced. He always listens and takes a deep dive into any word you say or any situation you bring up. After the few sessions we’ve had he has always found a way to keep it different and not the same every time. He also makes sure not to give me any homework which is amazing for me a full time college student and collegiate athlete I barely have time in general. Lastly Gary is very good on time and working his own schedule to fit yours.
