About Me

Hello! My name is Harry Gilley and I am a BeterHelp therapist! Thanks for taking the time to review my Bio. I have over 25 years experience in mental health, substance abuse, and medical social work experience while living in South Carolina, Illinois, Georgia, and Tennessee. I currently live in TN and teach at the University of Tennessee at Martin. I teach Social Work (SW) and specialize in SW and Health Care, SW and Mental Health, and SW in Substance Abuse. My Teaching experience has been over 6 years and I have learned a great deal from my many Students. I have expertise with individual, group, family, multi-family Therapy. I can use eclectic therapies and I have noticed that my Client's benefit from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Over the past year, I have gained Tele-Therapy experience from working with two Tele-Therapy companies and have really enjoyed working with messaging, audio, and video formats to provide Therapy. All of my experience to date has helped me transform to a Tele-Therapy platform to provide services to individuals in this modern time which differs from face to face treatment. I live in W. TN and my loves in life are my children, family, music (great in Memphis), hiking, the beach, and boating. I am a believer in physical exercise and making efforts to achieve the best state of health I can. I lost 60 pounds in the last two years and have also worked in weight loss programs during my career. I have had a good deal of success working with Client's who want to make some changes physically to achieve better health. I use CBT and perform well with depression, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, and am skilled at working with the various mental and physical illnesses.

He’s a nice gentleman with motivational spirit that keeps pushing you forward. He’s motivated to work with his clients and is there at times of stress, he has a non-judgmental approach and a good sense of humor, I strongly recommend him

I started all of this a nervous wreck! Since only speaking with Harry for a little over a week now, I cannot believe the change in my thought process. I’ve been struggling with my issues for over a year and I can NOW finally see the bright side and have a clearer, more innovative approach to what I’m trying to accomplish here. I will forever be grateful for being matched up with Harry! I wish I would’ve done this sooner. He is quick to respond to all of my issues/thoughts. Things are really becoming much more peaceful in my head. Thank you again!

Ever since I started working with Harry my paranoia has decreased, he also helped me to learn not to overthink things that will get me paranoid, I know I have improved since I started working with him and I'm living my life peacefully and with no worry, I highly recommend working with Harry.

Highly recommend Harry for stress management, relationship issues, career stress and self motivation.
Harry had been very helpful in helping me overcome the hard and depressing time in my life. He always gave me full attention and listened thoroughly and patiently to all my problems before giving me advice, he never rushed. He is very good at breaking down problems in small chunks and helping to take action on each part in a constructive manner. I really liked his way of counseling.
