About Ryan Gardner

Welcome! Are you needing help to manage stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar, ADHD, substance use or psychosis?  Seeking help is hard—whether due to stigma, ambivalence, motivation, or resources. We all experience challenges and need support and encouragement to guide us through life. With a warm and authentic approach, I partner with you to better understand your unique “road map,” and to assist you with feeling empowered and developing the skills to succeed. Relying upon nearly 15 years of professional experience, I’ve treated a wide-range of consumers (children, adolescents, and adults) and populations (e.g., Veterans). My approach is eclectic and includes training in EMDR, cognitive therapies (e.g., CBT, ACT, DBT), mindfulness, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Humanistic/Existentialist/Gestalt.  I also specialize in care management and system navigation by problem-solving common logistical challenges related to accessing and maintaining optimal health and wellness. I believe that non-judgmental listening, normalizing, and inspiring hope, along with the use of evidence-based practices helps build rapport and facilitates behavior change.  Take the first step today towards empowerment by improving your health and wellness.  I look forward to working with you!  Offering a free 15 minute phone consultation.
