Gordon HareGordon Hare, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

“I always make a point to connect with each and every client. Through my understanding of each client as a whole person, we are able to work together to reduce suffering and improve functioning in family, social, and occupational areas. I typically employ cognitive behavioral techniques to improve patterns of thinking, feeling, communicating and behaving. When appropriate, I may utilize EMDR to deal with memories of especially frightening, shocking, or hurtful events. In this way, even long standing emotional burdens can be reduced.”
