“People are made of stories. Our memories are not the impartial accumulation of every second we’ve lived; they’re the narrative that we assembled out of selected moments.” ― Ted Chiang

Effective therapy respects the knowledge, strengths, and experiences clients bring to the process. Ethical therapy honors the client’s hopes and dreams for their lives and their desires for the pace of treatment. Good therapy supports people in navigating the problems of their lives, helps them more connected with themselves, their loved ones, and their communities, and leaves them more able to fully savor the many joys and sorrows of living. Grant views it as his honor and his obligation to provide you with good, effective, ethical therapy.
In his free time Grant can be found reading science fiction and fantasy, practicing kung fu, playing chess, and generally searching for adventure.
