I am a psychotherapist licensed in Colorado and life coach with plenty of experience. I have 2 masters degrees in the areas of clinical counseling and school counseling along with extensive additional trainings and education. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, marital problems, trauma (both physical and emotional), grief and loss, life changing events like retirement or a new illness. Most importantly, I love what I do. I thrive on building relationships with clients and I sincerely desire for them to reach their therapy goals.
My approach is simple: 1) Develop a team approach, 2) achieve all therapy goals as soon as possible, 3) make certain all accomplishments are permanent. My approach includes solution- focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, emdr, and emotion-focused therapy.
What makes me different from other therapists is combining therapy with life coaching, it’s more of a “Less talk. More action." approach. We want results: healing, coping methods, a plan of action, or change. It can be a lot of work, but believe it or not, you won’t regret it and you might even enjoy the journey.
I look forward to working with you!

I am grateful that he sees what makes me tick. He has supported me and gave me the tools to find out what I could not see on my own. I have done a lot of work in a short time, and Gregory listens to me and helps me move over every bump I think is a mountain. I look forward to our sessions to find out what I am missing and can do to keep working and keep moving forward. Thank you Gregory for everything!

Dr. Sims listens to understand, not to reply. He is very knowledgeable in many areas, which makes him a great Dr. for many different types of issues.

My therapist is very kind and truly cares about my well-being. He is a great communicator and I feel he truly listens to each word I say.

Greg has been an excellent therapist in a very hard time in my life. He challenges me in ways I need while at the same time allowing me to really observe my own patterns that have kept me stuck. He's been a life saver!

There is a great and heightened debate of late about the value of "talk therapy". Where there is concurrence is that to be successful, there must be a great relationship between client and therapist. With Greg, that's easy to accomplish. I am truly blessed to be working with him.
