The ability to acknowledge our struggles is the first step towards positive change. We are all capable of it. The majority of my career has been spent working with children, teenagers and young adults . The focus is usually on helping them manage issues related to depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma and low self-esteem. I enjoy getting to engage in family therapy, with the focus on improving communication and family dynamics. My work with adults focuses on similar concerns. I enjoy clients who come to therapy with a desire to understand themselves and change behaviors or thought patterns that are negatively impacting their lives.

Greg specializes in trauma-focused therapy for children ages 5 & up, adolescents, and adults . For those who have experienced childhood trauma, relational trauma, or complex trauma, life often feels overwhelming. Their sense of self, relationships, & view of the past, present, & future become rocky at best. As a result many trauma survivors live in chronic state of anxiety, depression, numbness, fatigue, burn out & suffer from illness. In addition to trauma survivors, Greg works closely with children, teens, young adults , & adoptive families struggling with depression, anxiety, dissociation, mood disorders, behavioral issues & more.

I enjoy working with both adults and children on issues including depression, trauma/PTSD, anxiety, AD/HD, behavioral issues, grief/loss, relational issues, and other issues surrounding family dynamics.
Sometimes we lose our way in life or we are inhibited by past trauma/grief that can leave us overwhelmed and confused. I believe that you can't always choose your circumstances in life, but you can choose to overcome them. I also believe that you have the power to manage/control your thoughts and feelings instead of allowing them to control you. My goal is to help you work through those past or current issues, overcome those difficult circumstances in life, and to help you gain control over your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to help enhance your well-being.

During my 20+ years of experience I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families with a variety of issues.
What I love most about being a therapist is seeing how positive changes in one person have a ripple effect in their family and community. We are truly all connected. I believe my non-threatening down -to- earth support, optimism, and problem-solving skills are my greatest therapy strengths. I would love the opportunity to listen to you and help you uncover the strengths you need to live life to the fullest.

I enjoy meeting with individual adults .
The thought of meeting with a therapist can be intimidating, and I pride myself in my clients describing me as being very down to earth and easy to talk with. Most individuals who have never pursued therapy before are pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoy this relationship. I work with Willis (Great Pyrenees/Great Dane) who is an AKC Canine Good Citizen and registered Therapy Dog through Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He is available to be present during appointments if desired.

It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I hold an Anger Management Certification. I also enjoy working with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially. This includes working with individuals on the high functioning end of the Autism scale.

[I am currently not taking new clients, wishing you the best in your healing journeys] Often, we mistakenly ask the question, "what's wrong with me?" when the question to ask is, "what happened to me?" I work with children, adolescents, and adults - individually and in parent-child dynamics.

Life is a complicated journey, and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to walk with my clients as they navigate relationships, self esteem, life transitions, losses and change. My practice focuses on helping adults resolve difficult life experiences, whether from childhood or from the challenges of daily life or the inevitable transitions and changes of life as we grow older. I believe that therapy can help people break out of the set patterns of thinking and feeling that restrict us from living our life to our highest potential.

Do you find yourself frequently overwhelmed by negative emotions? Do you find yourself trapped in an ever-repeating cycle? You are not alone. Thoreau said, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." It does not have to stay this way. There is hope. Many times, the first step to changing your life is to say things out loud to someone you trust. I am committed to creating a safe place for you to be real with no fear of judgment. It would be my honor to come alongside you as we work through the things that have kept you stuck for too long.

What type of Normal mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Normal?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
