Jay Gregory, PhD is a clinical psychologist and has been in private practice for over 18 years. He works with anxiety disorders, pain management, and couples therapy. His previous work includes working at the Crisis Triage Center at the Portland Providence Medical Center as well as positions in the community mental health field.
He is an avid proponent of the value of integrating the tools of yoga therapy into mental health settings, including private practice.
He has co-facilitated the Professional Yoga Therapy Training for Mental Health Providers since 2012, delivers lectures on the intersection of yoga and love, and co-facilitates weekend retreats that explore the dilemmas of the human journey: the biological imperative to survive and the spiritual imperative to thrive; the neurologically wired urge to connect as well as differentiate, and patterned habits of defending that threaten to crowd out our longing to experience undefended love and belonging.
