About me

Hey! I'm here because I love working with people and being a support on someone else's path. One thing life has shown me is that there is always a way forward--and always a way to be here in the midst of whatever we are experiencing. In this world with all its conflict, we need each other--I want to be a part of that process. I got into the field of mental health in 2001 and have conducted therapy since 2011. There are many modalities I draw from including CBT, DBT, Narrative therapy, Mindfulness, Family Systems, and work around personality types- often using the Enneagram. On some level, I feel like we can learn a lot about what needs to change without looking so far back in our history- our day-to-day experience is showing us more than we tend to recognize. However, the more I do this work, the more I realize the importance at looking at family of origin to identify patterns, beliefs, and responses that we have carried all of our life. I believe none of it is automatically good or bad- it's what we do with it.

The areas where I have worked most extensively include substance abuse recovery, trauma, loss, and life transitions. I'm grateful that people have opened up to me about all types of traumas and experiences. The best feedback I ever receive from clients is when they tell me they feel safe with me and that they know I am never judging them. If you think I can helpful to you on your journey, I can't wait to hear from you. All the best.

Greg is a solid as they come, right off the bat I felt completely comfortable venting everything I could to him. He listens and offers a variety of ways to help me. I would recommend Greg to anyone who thinks they need a therapist to talk to!
