Hi there, I'm Gerald!

Hi, my name is Gerald; I have many years of experience working with clients. I am very familiar with the process of change and therapy.

My approach

I have a developmental approach to therapy.

My focus

I typically work with married couples and individuals who are drug-involved, and I also like to utilize 12-step involvement for those who have chemical dependence issues.

My communication style

I am a good listener.

My journey to mental healthcare

I was encouraged to become a therapist by a family friend who was a psychiatrist.

My goals for you

My clients usually set their own goals and I work with them to facilitate them.

My first session with you

Usually in the first sessions, I like to take some time to get to know each other and listen to my clients and what their difficulties are, and get a feel for what they are experiencing internally.
