About Gregory Helton, MD

The mind has always fascinated Dr. Helton. Caring for people with mindcare conditions is the greatest way he positively impacts his community and society. When working with patients, he takes the time to get to know each person as an individual, while trying to understand the underlying root causes of their problems. His objective is to work with patients to help them better understand themselves and to help relieve their suffering. Prioritizing strong relationships with his patients as the primary mode of healing, Gregory draws from knowledge gained through psychoanalytic training. He believes in and is inspired by David Berceli’s statement that “all humans have an innate capacity to heal from traumatic experiences.”

If you have a scheduled in-office appointment at MindPath, but cannot attend in person either because you have symptoms or because you do not want to be in public, please call your MindPath office to switch your appointment to a telehealth visit where you can connect with your provider from your home.
