With 25 years of experience treating adults, teens, children, and families at all levels of care, from the counseling office, outpatient counseling programs, psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment programs, and even in school settings.  Gary considers himself to be a trauma therapist and has always worked with clients who have undergone some of the most difficult challenges in life.  He is certified in and often uses a technique called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a very effective, efficient and evidence based method to not just reduce trauma symptoms, but to resolve the trauma distress and disturbance.   However, he is trained in and incorporates many different methods and modalities when treating clients in order to meet each’s unique needs, and is also certified in Disaster Mental Health through the American Red Cross.
