Ellen Gray, PhD, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chapel Hill
You want more out of life. Your relationships are stale, unfulfilling or toxic. You have a vision of yourself, but cannot behave yourself into that vision. Or, you have recurrent distressing thoughts that plague and distract you from the tasks and rewards of life. You are sad, scared or worried about your past and future. Releasing your potential requires a set of technologies to liberate you from all these human dilemmas. Luckily, these tools exist--now more than ever before. I combine the contributions of neuroscience, energy psychology and Eastern metaphysical thought into a supportive, gently directive and respectful practice.
I help people discover and eliminate destructive personal and interpersonal patterns, make difficult life decisions and find paths to greater fulfillment. I see emotional pain as a signal that we are ready to grow but don't know exactly how. Therapy can sometimes point the way.
Henry David Thoreau said: "It takes two to speak the truth: one to speak and one to hear." I hope that by being the "one to hear" I will have the privilege of enabling you to speak your own truth and enrich your life.
