Who I love helping

Grief and Loss/Chronic Health

As a Leukemia survivor, I have experienced death on many levels; losing friends who had gone before me and losing loved ones while fighting against the odds. It was something I had to experience first hand.

Marriage and Family

My wife and I are living proof of how well things can work out when two people put in the effort. We’ve been married for over 24 years, which has become a rarity in today’s world of divorce-prone couples.

Major Mental Health

In today’s world, there are so many struggles for mental health for adolescents and adults. But with the right help and guidance, they too can live a happy life with a future full of hope. This is something I understand and can help with.

Sports Counseling

Professional and highly competitive athletes down to 12-year-olds trying to find their pitch. The mental aspects of sports and learning how to focus, overcome, and move forward in our lives one play at a time.

Gregory M. Deitchler,

Growing up, Greg faced many hardships but overcame them all. At just 10 years old, he had received revolutionary treatments for his Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia which had resulted from a grim diagnosis.

This did not stop him from being anything less than inspirational and successful in everything that he does. He spoke to others about how giving money towards fundraising was crucial in aiding cancer research; moreover, it led him to start Camp Rainbow Gold -a camp specifically geared towards children with cancer.

It wasn’t long before he reached higher levels of achievement when at the age of nineteen -he became one of the youngest people ever to be elected as the Vice President of the Local American Cancer Society. Following this accomplishment, Greg set up Promising Horizons-his personal clinical practice dedicated exclusively to marriage and family therapy and mental health treatment; furthermore, it dealt with treating emotional trauma among other things such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In addition to his private practice, he teaches how to deal with mental health, attachment issues and violence prevention. He’s certified for all sorts of training programs including non-violent crisis intervention.

Gregory M. Deitchler obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology, Minors in Interpersonal Communication and Conflict Resolution; his Masters of Arts Degree was in Counseling from Boise State University.

My Approach

& Philosophy

In my counseling practice, I work with individuals, couples, and families.  My theoretical orientation is rooted in reality theory, which basically takes an account of where you are now and where you plan to go in the future.  I believe in a brief solution-focused style that will enable us as a team to work systematically to get at the problem at hand or the symptoms that have brought you to counseling.  We will touch on the past, as it is relevant; however, I like to focus on what the future has in store for you.  My theoretical model is a strong foundation in cognitive behavioral therapy and working to get to the source of the problem.  At any time throughout our session(s) you have the right to stop the session or to move it in another direction.
