All Things Anxiety
Jeff Gregson is our licensed mental health counselor and has a private practice in Northern Utah called All Things Anxiety. He is someone we trust and highly recommend to teenagers who are seeking professional help. Jeff specializes in anxiety, OCD, and depression treatment.
He is one of a small group of therapists in Utah who is certified by the International OCD
Foundation. Jeff understands anxiety and depression on a personal level and uses his personal experiences to help his clients.
Jeff is passionate about Connect and Conquer because, through his own bouts of anxiety and depression, he realized that physical activity plays a major role in feeling better. Jeff says, “It saved me in my darkest times. When simply getting out of bed and getting ready for the day felt like a marathon, exercising was the last thing I felt like doing. But I made myself do it. And, over time, I gained the momentum to pull myself out of these low places. Even today, exercise is one of my top priorities and I’ve learned that I enjoy doing hard things like Spartan races, mountain biking endless miles in the desert, and hiking places like Half Dome.”
Jeff works with all ages. He knows first-hand what those who struggle with anxiety, depression and OCD are going through, and wants to help make real changes in their lives.
Dr. Judd Gines is Connect and Conquer’s Physical Training Director and also has his own practice called Movement Chiropractic. He grew up in Provo, Utah, a small college town just west of the Wasatch front mountain range. After high school, Judd attended Brigham Young University on scholarship as a member of the Ballroom Dance Touring Company while he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree with an emphasis in Exercise Science. Judd continued his education in Davenport, Iowa at Palmer college of Chiropractic where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree and received a scholarship as a member of the Palmer College Rugby Club.
Judd believes that Connect and Conquer can truly help teens today overcome their challenges. He says, “Recently I learned that the true meaning of passion means to be willing to suffer for what you love. I have experienced a lot of physical and emotional suffering in my life, and I am living proof that as we build connections in our lives, those challenges can be conquered.”
In his free time Judd enjoys trail running, biking, working out, yoga and spending time with his wife Jamie, their sons Brigham and Charlie and their daughters Pearl and Rosie.
