Licensed Professional Counselor, Trauma and Substance Abuse Therapist

“I believe life is a process and a journey not a destination. The therapeutic process is not only for the individual who is experiencing crisis, it is a journey of personal evolution: self-discovery, learning, personal growth and empowerment. I facilitate and guide my client’s process to support them in making conscious Life Choices.”

Gary Breuer, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Trauma Specialist, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist

“Each of us possesses our own inner wisdom, truths and capabilities.  Past traumas or adverse experiences can keep parts of ourselves suspended in time, preventing us from being able to move forward and accessing our fullest Self.  I combine trauma and mind-body therapies to heal what holds you back from experiencing joy and satisfaction in your life.  I also have an interest in Transpersonal Psychotherapy, which addresses our highest potential, purpose and connectedness of everything.”
