My focus areas are: Couples Counseling (using Emotionally Focused Therapy), Shame (self-esteem, self-confidence, anger), Old Trauma (co-dependency, PTSD), Alcoholism Recovery (using 12 Steps and emotional sobriety), Grief/Loss, Christian and Spiritual Counseling and Aging. My deepest conviction is the dignity of the human person. My best tools are compassion, mercy, forgiveness and grace.

My soul task is to remind people of their inherent goodness, True Self. I don't give it to you; you already have it, but you may not be confident of it. Everybody gets stuck in the False Self, which is not bad, just limited and problematic. You have nothing to prove, nothing to earn. Indeed, you cannot earn your goodness, or lose any of it.

I collaborate with you in every session to determine if a) counseling is working for you and b) I am the right counselor using the right style. I am humbled and grateful to work with each client.

Gregory D. Burns's Groups

Healing Childhood Wounds

Healing Childhood Wounds is a psychodrama group for adults that are noticing the effects of childhood trauma in their current relationships and activities. The group meets on the third Saturday of the month, from 9am-4pm. It opens to new clients every four months. We believe that spontaneous, new experience is the best method to heal the wounds of past experience.

More about this group

False Gods of Shame

False Gods of Shame is a therapeutic workshop for adults who are restrained by shame, self-doubt, low self-esteem, lack of confidence or feelings of unworthiness. Using the Therapeutic Spiral Model, which consists of psychodrama, existing strengths and numerous safety structures, participants experience and gain confidence embodying healthy, self-supporting and self-affirming roles. This workshop begins with an evening session and then continues the following day, morning and afternoon.
