I have 20+ years experience providing therapy both for couples and individuals. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic therapy, and neuropsychotherapy to help the client or couple grow through their obstacles. Whether it’s a mood disorder, couple or family conflict, substance abuse or post-traumatic stress, I have helped many experience the healing they deserve. My training in both the psychological and neurobiological bases of numerous issues allows me to help the client or couple understand how they may allow their brain to find meaning and fulfillment.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Very helpful and honest Helped me learn skills and understand myself to make me come to a better place than I was a few months before

Feb 03, 2023


Dr. Gaddis has been amazingly helpful to me over the past few months. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to discuss problems with addiction. I can’t thank him enough for how much he has helped me!

Good sense of humor, professional, appropriately concerned.

Oh my gosh. I came to Dr. Gaddis not knowing what to do or how to feel. I felt broken and felt this huge disconnect from where I was and where I wanted to be, with no knowledge of how to get there. Through some really tough sessions and some really tough conversations, Dr. Gaddis had me realize that I was capable of moving through this process we call life, even when it weighs down on us. He taught me concrete actions and ways of thinking that seemed really simple at the time, but have helped me out enormously. I’m so proud of myself for getting the help I need, and am so so unbelievably thankful to have gotten it from Dr. Gaddis. Thank you, for everything.

Dr. Gaddis is the best therapist I’ve ever worked with. He treats you like a human, not an appointment slot to be filled. He listens so well and is incredibly supportive, kind, and understanding. He creates a safe environment that allows you to really dig into uncomfortable topics.

So far so good. We’re getting along swell!

Dr Gaddis meets me where I am. He is caring but doesn’t shy away from challenging me me with observations and possibilities. Really positive outcomes.

After our initial session, I am now able to utilize different tools to manage my anxiety better.

Dec 01, 2022


I am able to relate to Dr. G in ways I haven’t been able to with other therapists in the past. He’s already helping me a lot. And that’s saying quite a bit after only two 45 minute sessions.

Dr. Gaddis has been extremely uplifting, helpful, and supportive during some difficult times. Whole-heartedly recommend

Dr. Gaddis is a thoughtful and insightful therapist. He has helped me understant my situation and strategize about prioritizing mental health and anticipating triggers the cause emotional harm over the long run--stress, lack of sleep, boundaries, and more. I truly appreciate his expertise and perspective, and I'm sure others will too.

Nov 03, 2022


Only great things to say about Dr Gaddis. My mental has improved so much, and I'm more & more ready for the next stage in life.

Oct 24, 2022


After my first session, I’ve come away feeling understood, enlightened, and refreshed. His sense of humor shines through and creates an environment that is beyond therapeutic. I believe that most, if not all people would achieve their goals in therapy if they saw someone with the perfect blend of expertise and personality displayed by Dr. Gaddis.

Great person to talk to and share my experience with.

Dr. Gaddis is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. I’ve gone to a few different professionals to work on health anxiety/OCD issues. None of them have really understood what type of care works for me. With Dr. Gaddis’ help, I’ve learned how to manage my obsession with my health— though his methods did sound a little unconventional at first! I stuck with his recommendations and am so happy to say that I’m in a good enough spot now to pause therapy. I know he’ll be there if I should need him again and that I can count on him. I consider him a close friend!

Good therapist and excellent insight

I appreciate the style of Dr. Gaddis. He weaves in questions, stories and direct suggestions in a way that helps me think.

Dr. Gaddis has strong professional experience which he draws from during sessions and is a therapist who understands what patients are experiencing and shares his stories with mental health growth as well.

Background: I’ve never felt understood by my therapists/counselors/social workers throughout eight years of opening up. I was told time and time again to do the most basic things to get the release of endorphins- everything I already knew and heard countless times. It never worked- I played sports, powerlifted, went on hikes, traveled to a few countries, explored my artistic side… and still, I have carried this baggage with me. Something exercise, eating healthy, and surrounding myself with good people could not fix. Two social workers told me that I was so self-aware that they truly didn’t know how to help me. But after a few sessions with Dr. A, I knew that i wanted to continue therapy. Started actually looking forward to it, digging deeper, completing the simple yet effective worksheets he sent my way, and realizing that I feel understood for once. I’ve had trouble with feeling misunderstood my entire life, and Dr. A always has an answer, or even a question, for everything. And it’s genuine. Makes me think. Makes me actively pay attention to how I talk to myself and redirect the negative thoughts to more optimistic ones- or even to just stop them as I start. He really listens. He has a personality. He jokes with you. He treats you like a person and a patient, and it’s the perfect combination. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Gaddis to those individuals who are struggling to understand their purpose, the meaning of life, and/or even just themselves. I’m glad I switched therapists on this app, because I finally feel understood. And I’m finally getting out of my depression piece by piece, step by step. It’s not all rainbows and sunshine, but he helps me to regulate my thoughts and find a balance through it all. I’m very appreciative of finding this app, and I’m even more grateful to have found Dr. A. 10/10 would recommend.

B.E.·Jul 03, 2022


Dr. Gaddis is a listener first and foremost, but he will also check in on his patients from time to time outside of session. Its quite refreshing to see.

J.E.·Jun 30, 2022


Very insightful within a few sessions. I’m happy with my experience so far though well aware it is a long road.

S.T.·Jun 23, 2022


I know he always responds quickly and seems to really be an expert.
