I help couples work through marital conflicts and help them achieve a relationship based on trust, security, mutual empathy and deeper levels of connection. I also work with individuals struggling with histories of trauma such as sexual, physical or emotional abuse. In addition, I help men who struggle with compulsive sexual behaviors, anxieties, depression, and/or obsessive thoughts. I encourage clients to explore their past in order to identify patterns that are affecting their current relationships and personal goals. I provide a safe place to share personal struggles and work toward change. Upon request, I provide a Christian approach.
I help couples identify negative relational patterns and explore attachment issues that affect communication while rebuilding healthy growth fostering connections. I assist survivors of abuse in the process of remembering, mourning, and reconnecting. I help individuals with sexual compulsions identify patterns, create an accountability plan, and develop greater self worth.
I also provide clients who have a Christian worldview with a safe place to receive therapy that integrates faith and counseling. My experience includes working with priests (diocesan and religious orders), seminarians, and individuals discerning religious life and ministry.

Gerry Ken Crete's Groups

St. Augustine's Men's Group

This is a therapy group for Catholic (or Catholic friendly) men who struggle with sexual compulsions (e.g. pornography addiction). We explore family of origin issues, provide support and encouragement, and pursue a path to recovery and deeper levels of relational functioning.
