About Dean Grauds

Dean Grauds became a provider of therapy and counseling after successful careers in business and finance. Because he understands the pressured, stress-inducing environment of business and the cultural stresses on relationships and child rearing, he has empathy and caring for the daily challenges that life presents. He is knowledgeable and experienced in the areas of stress and depression, substance abuse and addictions, relationships, child rearing and life change. He has created a “positive psychology” approach to counseling and personal and professional development that helps clients focus on the future in order to reach new areas of attainment and levels of fulfillment. Positive psychology is forward looking and solution focused as it endeavors to empower clients and expand their abilities rather than looking backward and rehashing. Dean has an extensive background in substance abuse counseling, both on an individual basis as a recovery coach and in group settings. He is able to integrate the 12 Step model with positive psychology for a dynamic recovery program. Discretion and confidentiality are paramount. Experience with high visibility clients, including professionals, community leaders, clergy, entertainers and athletes. Provider to insurance plans. His services are respectful of client’s needs and unique schedules.
