If you’re here, there’s a good chance you’ve already tried to find some tools to manage your issue on your own.
Maybe you even found a couple that worked some of the time… but nothing seems to do what you’d hoped it would. There might even be times when you’ve felt hopeless, like this will never end.
Your Issue Is Actually A Symptom
Depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, and marital discord are sort of like a fever. If you have a fever it’s a solid indication that something in your body is off. But remember, the fever is a symptom. The real issue is something else.
Maybe you discover that you actually have a cold, the flu, or an infection. The point is, fever isn’t an illness, it’s actually a symptom.
It Can Usually Be Fixed (Or At Least Greatly Decreased)
Unlike biological infections, which are usually straightforward (unless they’re happening in an episode of Bones or ER), the issues that cause depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, and marital discord are almost always related to several factors.
Some things that can combine to create these issues include psychological history, relationship difficulties, changes in hormones and/or life stages, complex grief, post-traumatic stress disorder, genetics, environmental stressors… the list is pretty long.
It Helps to Have a Guide
I’ve been working with people recovering from depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, and marital discord since 2006 and teaching therapists to do so since 2010 as both a clinical director and professor. My staff and I are happy to come alongside you in your journey.
Our goal with you will be simple; understand the root of your sypmtoms and provide you with the tools you need to find and fix the actual problem. It’s our passion. And we can’t wait to share it with you.

About Greg Struve
My trauma and its symptoms caused untolled heartache in my life and the lives of my loved ones. Healing it became my personal obsession in 2001 when I started going to therapy. I enjoyed therapy so much I decided to go pro! Trauma and PTSD became my sole professional focus in 2006 and I’ve remained on that path since.
I received a Master’s in Counseling from the Adler Graduate School in 2006. I trained at one of the top trauma treatment centers in the world until 2008, when I became a faculty member at Grand Canyon University. From 2011 to 2016 I directed a program that lead the field in terms of innovative treatment of anxiety and trauma. During that time I made several appearances on A&E’s intervention.
I’ve completed training in Somatic Experiencing (SE) and am an approved SE training assistant. I’ve also completed coursework for the Neuro-Affective Relational Module, a systematic approach to healing developmental trauma. Those trainings represent four-and-a-half years of post-graduate study in trauma resolution.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Maria and our twin daughters. We’ve recently taken up camping and enjoy watching “old-school” sitcoms on Netflix.
