Dr. Gerry Crete, Ph.D.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and professional counselor in private practice. My practice, Transfiguration Counseling, is based in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to marriage counseling, I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders. As an EMDR certified therapist I help my clients process past wounds and adapt to stress in new ways. My spiritual approach has been influenced especially by the writings and practices of St. Francis de Sales, St. Ignatius of Loyola, and St. Teresa of Avila. As a Byzantine Catholic, I have also been influenced by the Eastern Christian emphasis on the person as created in the image of God as well as the concepts of theosis (inner transformation into the likeness of God) and hesychasm (stillness before God). On a lighter note, I’m a lifetime science fiction/fantasy geek who enjoys old comic books and movies. I also love biking and hiking. I’ve been married 27 years and have three grown children.
