Doug Gragson


Counseling can be a gift — a gift of peace, understanding, self-awareness, growth and most importantly self-love. Counseling can bring change to difficult life circumstances and can change feelings we may have lived with for most of our lives. As a counselor, I view my role simply as a facilitator providing empathic support to help others heal wounds, make sense of their world, find happier lives and remove unnecessary boundaries. I believe everyone is deserving of this gift and can achieve lives they long for. When people become stuck it is my role to help them engage in the process and adventure of self-awareness. This process can bring growth allowing the individual to engage the life they desire. I love being a counselor!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor providing individual, couples and group counseling with adolescents and adults incorporating an eclectic approach to therapy. I have been fortunate during my years to work with families experiencing difficulties, angry teenagers and adults struggling to meet their full potential, couples trying to grow their relationship, and individuals struggling with alcohol and substance abuse. I feel grateful to see the process of growth and change that can occur when individuals commit to this journey. 

Over the past 30 years I have worked in a variety of roles and settings within the mental health field which allow me to have an awareness and an understanding of many issues. More importantly, I have learned that each individual client requires a uniquely tailored solution that works for his or her life. I invite you to come along, and I will commit to providing a place where you will be heard and supported unconditionally.
