My name is Greg Cook and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. I have 11 years of experience working in mental health. I have had the opportunity to work in several settings in that time including residential, acute, and outpatient. I also have experience in group homes and detention centers performing psychological and educational assessments. I have worked in schools as a community-based counselor and, currently, as a school employee. I have worked with children, teens, and adults, serving my clients through individual, group, and family therapy. I have been able to assist my clients with a wide range of issues including depression, ADHD, anxiety, marital conflict, parenting issues, and past trauma.
I am very passionate about helping others. It has been the one constant when I considered what I should do with my life. No job or profession has ever been a realistic option for me unless it involved creating relationships and working with people to help them meet their goals. I enjoy building others up and helping them to reach their full potential. I know that there are times in everyone’s life when they just need that, to feel like someone is there to hear them and support them.
My approach is very relationship driven. I believe the benefits of therapy are deeply connected to the therapeutic relationship. I typically draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches while serving my clients, primarily Reality Therapy, CBT, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. However, I do draw from others if they are more appropriate for the specific situation.

Greg has been very receptive and willing to take things at a pace that I am comfortable with. He is easy to talk to and sets a non-judgmental tone in his responses.
I appreciate that Greg acknowledges each aspect of the issue and works quickly to help find possible solutions without judgment.
Greg's counseling approach has been such a breath of fresh air for me! I have spent years on and off in counseling and have never felt as much progress as I have in the short amount of time that I've had with Greg. He responds to me very quickly and challenges me in such a way and in places I never thought I needed but actually needed the most! I also love that BetterHelp offers the privacy of the chat rooms with your counselor as well as the telehealth visits. I hope to build a long and trusting relationship with Greg Cook and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help!
Greg is a great listener, I've never had a better therapist.
