Gary Snapper, MA, LPC, Counselor in Kalamazoo
For 14 years, I have been helping clients build upon strengths and face challenges to achieve their goals of therapy. As a licensed professional counselor I utilize the evidence based therapeutic approach of Cognitive Behavior Therapy as a basis for reducing suffering and achieving specific goals. Mindfulness and other coping techniques are incorporated to help address emotional suffering and to help tolerate environmental stressors to create a more balanced, tolerable life.
My areas of specialty include: anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, Aspergers, and personality disorders. These are all highly treatable conditions with Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I also have 14 years of experience as a Dialectical Behavior therapist(DBT).
CBS offers Comprehensive DBT services. Gary is one of the first 60 Certified DBT therapists in the U.S. CBS also offers support services for families of people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Eating Disorders. Please contact Gary by phone or email with questions, or to make an initial assessment appointment.
