Greg LaLiberte LPC-S
I’m Greg LaLiberte, Ed.S, NCC, LPC-S.
I am a Texas Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, who has worked in this field since 2006. Originally from Detroit, I attended Murray State University for a Masters/Specialist of Education degree in Mental Health Counseling.
I hold a National Board-Certified Counselor (NCC) credential from the National Board of Certified Counselors; and State of Texas credentials as an LPC-Intern Supervisor, and in Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment (mental health combined with substance abuse issues). I earned a State Certificate in “Therapeutic Community Building,” for Mental Health and Substance Abuse, Inpatient and Partial Hospitalization/Intensive Outpatient Programs.
Many professionals say I am a “Dual Diagnosis, Chemical Dependency, and Mental Health Specialist.” I am well-known for my progress working with difficult clients, who are often Dually Diagnosed Substance Abusers; having worked much of my career, either full or part-time with Drug Treatment Programs.
Logotherapy, Positive Psychology, and evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are my favorite counseling styles.
I have specialized training in Chi Gung Relaxation Techniques, and Transformative Prayer Ministry (TPM).
I enjoy assisting adults and adolescents during a time of crisis or confusion in their lives, be it either behavioral or substance abuse related. I enjoy working with families, couples, and individuals. I hold great empathy for adolescents and young adults struggling across obstacles in this fast-changing world. I am willing and able to work with any demographic of clients should an urgent need or request come my way.
While I have vast experience working with many different treatment modalities, I favor Logotherapy and Positive Psychology Counseling. Logotherapy asserts that the person who fulfills a meaningful purpose derives genuine satisfaction from it [which will lead to happiness]; positive psychology states that positive emotions and thinking (often inspired by meaning) will surely lead to happiness.
In addition, I employ multimedia elements in my Counseling such as “Cinema Therapy.”
I am a member of the Texas Counseling Association, and an Alumni of Delts (Delta Tau Delta), “Delts 95, Zeta Zeta”. I enjoy 1980s’ New Wave & Punk Rock, Folk, Classic Rock, and Classic Country music. I participate in Chen Tai Chi classes and am a history buff, very interested in Orthodox Christianity and Comparative religion. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I have a history of adopting stray pets. Coming from Detroit, I still maintain an interest in aggressive hockey teams and leagues.
