Greg Bodin, LMFT
Greg focuses on helping his clients, single, coupled, gay and straight, gain momentum toward the life they want—in every session. Many of his clients come to him because they feel stuck, alone or helpless. Many have thoughts they can’t manage, thoughts they know get in the way of feeling secure and whole. His clients are ready to take action to help themselves, even when past efforts have left them feeling hopeless.
There are lots of therapists out there, and each one has a unique style. Greg's style is to focus, laser focus, on positive changes his clients can make to feel better now. While the past may provide some helpful insights, Greg helps his clients look optimistically to the future.
His lens on the world is wide. He's an urban-dwelling Bay Area transplant and has worked for two decades in small, mid-sized and large organizations as a busy leader and manager. He understands the complexities of today’s working person and aims to help his clients navigate the personal and professional relationships in their lives.
We don’t often notice our thoughts and emotions and how they effect us. But when we do, a magic moment presents itself that gently leads us toward a different behavior and a different experience for our lives. Greg loves helping his clients find that magic moment because it ignites a momentum that sets their lives on a happier course.
Greg focuses on working with individuals, couples, and groups around:
- life and career transition issues
- anxiety and fear issues including social anxiety, panic attacks, racing thoughts, and phobias
- issues related to sexuality, including issues of sexual identity, sex addiction, and navigating sexual issues in relationships
His practice is founded on techniques that scientific research has proven to be effective. Much of the work that he does is based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
When he's not learning how to be a better therapist, Greg cooks, bakes, reads maps, and explores the world.
