My specialty is working with adolescents and adults to improve communication and facilitate healing from trauma and/or issues that are impacting life in a negative way. I have extensive experience working to address the effects of sexual and physical abuse history, PTSD, OCD, as well as anxiety and depression. I am passionate about working with women who are dealing with transitions, marital, relationship and other challenges. I focus on building a trusting relationship, identifying solutions and strengths in order to facilitate transformation. I am trained in IFS, EMDR, and Play Therapy, among other approaches.
I think the connection between a therapist and client is the most important aspect of the counseling work. When a good relationship is established you can reach your goals and challenge yourself in an environment that feels safe. I enjoy working with children, teens, and families in a variety of ways. I also enjoy supporting parents with the many challenges of raising children in todays society. My theoretical perspective is rooted in psychodynamic theory, where we will work to gather insight about experiences and how they are impacting you in your current challenges.
Good psychological care offers people relief from acute pain and new ways of framing the challenges they face. We will work together using a variety of tools, strategies, and insights that support your recovery and growth. Seeing you through this process is my greatest honor. My approach is integrative and responsive, intelligent and professional.
What seems to help people most is not changing thoughts or behaviors, or problem solving help, but rather to form a trusted alliance with a therapist who can gently but insistently help them to see and know their own defenses, repetitions and blind spots. Many individuals need a therapist who can listen patiently and give them time to develop trust and open up to their inner world of needs and wishes. When emotional problems come from a long history of hurtful and traumatic relationships, defenses that were once necessary for survival can get in the way of finding satisfaction in life.
I enjoy working with and helping young people and families as a therapist who has worked in private practice and community mental health. I have also helped many adults and couples over the years. I work from a mixture of developmental and biological theoretical perspectives with a desire to help you identify and realize your goals and support you when you feel most challenged. Our first meeting will be a consultation to help you find what YOU are looking for.
Asking for help can be one of the hardest decisions/actions an individual takes when they are struggling with actively using alcohol and/or substances. I also believe it is the most courageous decision/action you may make in your life. An individual who does this is allowing themselves to be vulnerable. When done with the right support can be the most rewarding and empowering experience for an individual. My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe, warm space for you as the client to explore your relationship with alcohol and/or substances.

We are experiencing changes in our personal and professional lives. Whenever significant change occurs in our relationships, housing or work place we feel stress. Working together we find comfort in a safe place where you can talk at your own pace about your personal issues and relationships. You may be looking for a healthy natural solution that can reduce stress and anxiety. We can take a mindful approach and/or follow spiritual principles. I offer a peaceful approach to finding a path toward a healthier life. This is an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and take steps toward reclaiming your inner truth.

Dr. Gregory Wilson offers affordable counseling for individuals, families, couples, and children. He has thirty years' experience, including working with codependency, anxiety and depression, and intimacy and communication issues. The focus is based on this question,” What needs to change to get you going where you want to go?, and what is gong on that the change has yet to happen? “The more the drive toward life is thwarted, the stronger is the drive toward destruction; the more life is realized, the less is the strength of destructiveness. Destructiveness is the outcome of unlived life.”
I have a focus on providing collaborative support within a framework of social justice and a strong belief that each person has everything they need within them and sometimes we all lose touch with these things and could use some outside support to discover our answers. I view my role as a therapist as the bridge to the answers within that may be difficult to see. I believe that the context of our lives is important to understanding our experiences.
Whether we realize it or not, we're all carrying around a bag: some of us carry a suitcase, others a backpack, and some push around a luggage cart or two overflowing with their bags. Why not downsize a bit? Therapy is all about you. Yes, you'll talk about other people, most likely. But it's not an hour about how they feel; it's an hour about how you feel. It's an hour to be completely open and honest about your life without judgement or interruption. And you deserve it.
I use a psychodynamic approach to foster self-awareness and insight into internal conflicts and relationship patterns. If you are looking for intensive psychotherapy to better understand yourself please contact me to schedule a consultation. I also provide clinical supervision to mental health professionals and trainees.
If you are struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, life stressors, self-esteem, or feeling "stuck," I am passionate for you to know that you are not alone! I am deeply committed to fighting stigma and shame surrounding mental health issues. To be human is to struggle with our mental health in different seasons of our lives, and no one is an exception. Feelings of shame can keep us from reaching out for help, and, tragically, can prevent us from experiencing the healing and vibrancy we so desperately desire. I see and honor the courage and grit it takes for you to be here in this space.
Throughout my years of practice my work has been enriched by all the people I have supported to experience their capacity while navigating some of life’s most difficult challenges. Now more than ever, living in a COVID-19 pandemic, facing day to day challenges can feel even more overwhelming. I believe in each person’s competence and resilience, and I am confident that I can help clients to live life to the fullest with integrity, dignity and courage. I work with families, couples and individuals from diverse backgrounds. LGBTQ clients are welcome.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is often effective with those of us who have had suicidal ideation and self harming behaviors and tried other therapies without relief. DBT was created by the psychologist, psychiatric survivor and Zen master Dr Marsha Linehan. DBT is an evidenced based cognitive behavior therapy that recent research has shown to be effective when delivered in group format via Telehealth.
Do you feel lost? Do you struggle with finding the meaning of your life? You are not alone. We are flooded by constant stimulation, whether from relationships, social media images, responsibilities, and expectations. It can be so overwhelming and make us question ourselves. I offer a therapeutic space to be seen & heard—a place to explore yourself and your needs. I practice from the belief that each individual can change their life. Offering you a place to be vulnerable, accept yourself, explore yourself, heal, and move one step forward. Please call or email for a free 15-30 min consultation.
Life’s challenges sometimes can feel like mountains which we are never going to get over or storms that we may never be able to see another sunset or sunrise. This is when we need a little helping hand that I can provide to allow you to move within the world in a healthier and more fulfilling way. I work with adults, adolescences, preadolescences, children, and families to help get through their challenges. I enjoy age diversity. I have over 20 years of experience with children and teens either as a teacher, athletic coach, or a counselor.
