Dr. Gregory Alter uses several emotionally supportive approaches to help you meet your needs, reach your goals, and overcome challenges:
I help children, adults, and families by improving how we learn, feel, and find meaning in our lives. I encourage the joy of finding tools of all sorts in this quest, ranging from the conversational, talking about how we know what we know, to computer software guided learning experiences. I am a Licensed Psychologist PSY7422, with over twenty-five years of experience.
