About Me

I agree to "love, honor and cherish" my spouse. In the dramas of life, somehow that gets lost and marriages have some tough times, ending in divorce statistically in
a little over 50% of the time. I enjoy working with couples. I am able to stay neutral and avoid taking sides. I am interactive in the sessions, will challenge harmful behaviors and offer better ways to interact and resolve conflict. I utilize psycho-educational information and homework to facilitate positive change. When I can get the couple to let go of their pride, find humility and look in the mirror instead of a magnifying glass, they sense more control and good things happen. Often they walk away from therapy and live their lives "passionately ever after".

Garry is straightforward and kind. He will call like it is but also offer several strategies to get back to the real meaning of what your relationship is.

We have used Regain 3 times in the last 3 years. Gary is the first time that we have felt truly connected with our sessions. He is unbiased, tells you like it is, and readily available. I believe his excercises and advice are practical and helpful.

He’s such a nice an honest person. He will listen to what you were saying if you are also call you out if you’re out of line. Self reflection is a hard thing but he does it in such a nice way. We really enjoy our sessions with him.

My husband and I have spoke with several counselors and Gary is by far our top pick. He is very thorough, gives adequate guidance, and I recommend him 10/10.

Gary does a great job intentionally and thoughtfully listening. He hears what your concerns are and helps you to look inward to find a solution, as opposed to dwelling on the things around you that you are unable to control.
