Greg provides counseling for individuals, couples, and families who need help getting through life that can be painful and confusing. He has extensive training and experience working with anxiety, trauma, and family and relational challenges. Greg works with diverse populations, including athletes addressing performance anxiety, victims of rape, incest, and combat -related trauma. He spends time with clients who wrestle with sexual orientation, depression, fears and phobias, religious beliefs, and anger and unforgiveness.

Greg and his family enjoy farming, backpacking, and routine trips to New Orleans, the beach, and the mountains. Before he began his counseling career he traveled throughout the country as a professional musician, during which time he recorded two albums. He loves to read, and is in the process of completing his first book of short autobiographical stories.
