About Me

"Psychology should be just as concerned with building strength as with repairing damage"

Martin Seligman

I have been working as a psychotherapist since 2014. Working with children, families, and adults with all kinds of challenges ranging from depression and anxiety to relationship and parenting struggles as well as life and career counseling. I currently work as an outpatient co-occuring psychotherapist, working with clients struggling with substance use in combination with other mental health issues. I am creative and flexible, able to find multiple ways of working with clients in ways that they are most comfortable with. I'm hopeful for all of my clients and their ability flourish and become the best versions of themselves.

My counseling style is eclectic, primarily focusing using on Positive Psychology and Trauma Informed lens; utilizing Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), sensori-motor psychotherapy, and Eco Therapy interventions. I am also certified in the Neuroequential Model of Therapeutics through Dr. Bruce Perry's Child Trauma Academy and level one trained in Gottman Model Couples Counseling.

I try to read and answer messages sent to me at least once a day. There may be exceptions when I have more time I may respond more frequently and there may be occasions for me to miss a day. I also try to be more responsive and accommodate my client's who may be struggling more than usual. If I go out of town for an extended period of time I will notify all of my clients and do my best to touch base as frequently as possible depending on the internet situation.

I no longer offer live video or phone chat through BetterHelp.

Greg is kind and competent, meeting you wherever you are. I feel safe exposing all my demons. You can tell that he really wants to help people, and he definitely helps me.

Greg has been amazing so far. He understood my main concern very quickly and his approach to tackle problems helps to dig every time a little bit deeper to find a real solution and heal those annoying bits. I will definitely recommend Greg as a counselor - Thank you for this space you give me to talk and think about myself. All the best.

Greg has been very supportive and I have recommended him and BetterHelp to a friend already! Greg is very attentive and his is very knowledgable.

Written by I.L. on May 28, 2017 after counseling with Greg for 3 weeks

Greg has been patient, kind and professional for the entirety of my counselling with him. At first, I did feel annoyed with him because it felt like he was echoing my words back to me as opposed to actually contributing. But that's actually been impatience on my part, and he's been incredibly attentive to the finer points of my problems. I would recommend him, and BetterHelp to anyone unable to or unmotivated to find help near them. Most depressives I think would avoid the hassle of getting in touch with professionals. But this service only needed a 5 minute bump of motivation, in which I could fill a form and download your app. I was actually telling Greg that simply having a platform, ready in my pocket made handling my stress and anxiety a little easier.

Greg is professional and very helpful. He has provided me with the tools I need to cope with stresses in life. He doesn't give "one size fits all" advice. I can tell he takes the time to read and respond with the utmost of care to my messages. I really appreciate his help.

Written by C.R on Mar 02, 2017 after counseling with Greg for 3 weeks

Greg is one of the wisest people I've ever gotten the pleasure to talk to. He is a great listener and never makes you feel judged or alienated. He truly cares for his clients and has been immensely helpful if showing me ways I can deal with my anxiety. It's been very comforting to have him to talk to after each day especially on days when my anxiety is bad. He has honestly made a positive impact on my life and for that I am forever grateful.

Greg was just amazing. Exactly what I needed. Only 3 weeks and I can see myself from different prospective. More positive, more capable, happier. Could not thank him enough for his time and dedication to my problems.

Written by B.E on Jan 29, 2017 after counseling with Greg for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, self esteem, and anger

I have enjoyed talking to Greg. I have learned a lot of tools to control my anger, and my feelings... He is easy to talk to and seems to listen, care, and respond quickly... Saying that I will have to quit my sessions at the end of the week for financial reasons... I have discussed this with Greg. I needed someone to share my issues with and learn to cope, and have seen improvement in my life and will continue using the tools that were shared with me... Thank you Greg ... And thank you BetterHelp!

Written by L.I on Jan 11, 2017 after counseling with Greg for 2 months on issues concerning eating

Greg has been very helpful from the very beginning. He understood my problem and even though he admitted my issues were quite complex he made me understand that no issue is impossible to overcome. He provided me with so many different techniques to try until we gradually found the path that suited me the most. Now I feel so much more grounded and calm, it's wonderful! Knowing that whenever I was struggling I could write to Greg and he would respond within a short time-frame made me feel like I was not on my own and gave me the confidence I needed. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in need for a friendly support to change your life :)
