My name is Greg Preston and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have a B.A. In Psychology, and an M.A. In Counseling. I have over 22 years experience working with individuals and families to help them lead more peaceful, productive and fulfilling lives. I believe that our relationships are key to our happiness and well-being, and that there is much we can do to enhance them and seek healthy connections. Some of the areas I treat are stress management, anger management, relationship help, addictions, and OCD.
My mission is to inspire clients to grow personally and emotionally. Everyone has the right to be happy. Addressing your concerns through therapy can help. At Preston Counseling, I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between the individuals and the therapist. Change is possible with understanding and empathy, and the right tools. When a client is an active participant in his or her treatment, and is committed to applying the knowledge gained through their therapy session to life, positive and powerful changes can happen.
The power to make positive changes is within us all. My intention is to provide a confidential, professional and supportive environment in which individuals and families can identify problem areas, explore what prevents the problem from being solved, and help you develop and learn skills that can enhance your quality of life.
My goal is to help you experience positive change as quickly as possible while respecting the complexity of your situation. I want you to feel comfortable with me and to trust that I will understand you and your needs. I will offer a truthful perspective on your situation. There ARE solutions.
A good rapport with your therapist is critical. I will begin by truly listening to you. From there you will see that my style is fairly active and open. Your experience with me will be professional, yet relaxed and informal. You can expect an objective, non-judgmental, and compassionate atmosphere that allows you to safely resolve your current struggles and make desired changes in your life.
