J. Cameron Preece, Ph. D.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
I love the psychotherapy work that I do.  For the last 22 years I have been a witness to the courage, tenacity, and creativity of my clients as they strive to improve their personal lives and relationships in their families.
The therapy services and interventions I provide for couples, families, and individuals are grounded in a bio-psychosocial systems perspective.  I am convinced that “the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts” and thus pay keen attention to how a person’s body, mind, and social systems play a role in creating challenges and solutions in life.
I also believe psychotherapists are most successful when they demand the same changes in themselves that they encourage in those they provide therapy services for. 

My expertise and training has lead me to work effectively with clients through the normal transitions of life as well as issues as varied as depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, chronic illness, bereavement, parent/child problems, acting out teens, marital conflict, sexual addiction, infidelity, and improving intimacy and communication in couple relationships.

​Over the years, I have been a very active contributor to the field of Marriage & Family Therapy.  I have presented at national conferences (AAMFT & NCFR) have taught a number of graduate level courses as an adjunct professor at Syracuse University. 

Currently, I provide clinical supervision for recently graduated students and new professionals seeking Marriage & Family Therapy licensure.  I have been very active on the Idaho Association for Marriage & Family Therapy board (President/Past-President) and was instrumental in bringing the Associate Marriage & Family Therapy License to Idaho.

I regularly share my professional training and expertise with community and religious service groups through workshops, firesides, seminars, administrative training, and other presentations.
In addition to my many professional interests, I love spending time with my wife and four children. I have served in numerous leadership positions in my church and  community.  My family and I moved to Boise from Syracuse, New York in 2003. 

If I am not in the office you may find me with my family exploring the trails above Boise on my mountain bike, skiing Bogus, rafting in Hell’s Canyon, backpacking in the Idaho wilderness, rock climbing, or pedaling away the miles in the Idaho countryside on my road bike.

Gregory M. Deitchler, MA, LMFT, LPC
Gregory M. Deitchler has been motivating and inspiring large and small audiences for nearly three decades. He combines an extensive education with his remarkable survival from cancer to motivate, inspire and educate his audiences. Because Greg believes with great passion that life is a gift that must be made the most of, he inspires others to live fuller lives and achieve their dreams.

Greg was named one of the State of Idaho’s top motivators by the Idaho Statesman and was inducted into the Associated Students of Boise State University Hall of Fame for Community Service.

Early in life Greg learned to turn setbacks into comebacks. After receiving successful pioneering cancer treatments that followed a bleak prognosis for his returned Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, Greg’s purpose quickly became bigger than his own survival. He became a speaker and fundraiser for the American Cancer Society at the age of 10. Greg has enlightened others about the value of donating money to research-based treatments. Mr. Deitchler was instrumental in starting Camp Rainbow Gold, a camp for kids with cancer. As an extension of the camp, Greg founded the first teen support group for teens surviving cancer. Mr. Deitchler became the youngest person ever to be elected as the Vice President of the Local American Cancer Society at age 19. After attaining his education, he established Promising Horizons, a private clinical practice in marriage and family therapy and mental health, and traumatic illness.

Greg’s extensive list of speeches and workshops includes partnerships with local cities and hospitals to bring low cost marriage and relationship education to the masses. He has given presentations to Fortune 500 Companies, adoption, cancer, diabetes, mental health and developmental disability agencies as well as civic organizations.

In addition to his private practice he trains educators, clinicians and public officials on the complexity of issues in adult and adolescent mental health, adoption and R.A.D., group dynamics, leadership development, executive coaching, and team building. Greg is also certified to train in non-violent crisis intervention.

Gregory M. Deitchler received his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, a Minor in interpersonal communication and conflict resolution, and his Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling from Boise State University.

Reaching out for help when you are struggling takes amazing strength and courage! I applaude your strength and I am so excited to walk with you on your journey toward a healthier you! I would describe myself as compassionate, encouraging, non-judgemental, and genuine. I look forward to getting to know you as we recapture your strengths and move through your journey together.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC-6112) in the State of Idaho. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling from Northwest Nazarene University.  I have been practicing since 2013.  I am also an approved supervisor with the Idaho Licensing Board. As a counselor, I utilize a systemic, strength based approach, primarily Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT), to assist individuals and families with enhancing their existing assets to work toward their goals and hopes for the future. In addition to CBT, I am also a trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

My beliefs encourage individuals to draw from strengths and experiences they already possess in order to navigate through life’s challenges and problem solve independently. While the root of my therapeutic approach lies in the Cognitive Behavioral framework, it is important to understand that, at times, it may be necessary to pull interventions from other therapeutic modalities. It is important for you to communicate how you feel about the treatment approach as an adjustment to the herapeutic approach might be necessary. In addition to traditional talk therapy and EMDR, I also help individuals through play therapy and expressive arts.

 EMDR Description:

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experience. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
Tyler D. Cazier, LPC, NCC

Are there times when you feel disconnected, alone, unimportant, and rejected - even in your closest relationships? You seek closeness but it ends in conflict? It seems the harder you try, the more disconnected you feel. Walls go up - you feel hurt and alone. You lose hope for a closer, more secure relationship. Tyler is committed to helping you end this negative cycle. By getting below the surface of behavior, he helps couples bring awareness to the deep, underlying emotional needs within themselves. A new bond is formed, where each partner is able to feel safe, supported, desired, and loved.

Tyler completed a 2 year internship at LDS Family Services where he successfully helped couples heal and reconnect from the damaging effects of addictions and affairs. He has also helped many women work through the healing process of sexual abuse, and other forms of victimization.  Well known for his ability to empathize with his clients and get to the root of their problem, Tyler is extremely compassionate, genuine, and caring. He has furthered his education and training by completing an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) Externship and EFT Advanced Core Skills.

Jana Stewart, LPC
When people experience trauma, severe life stressors, or times of crisis it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel.  Often, we hold deep beliefs about ourselves and others that do not serve us. We can find ourselves struggling to find happiness and peace.  I work to facilitate healing in those who have been through traumatic experiences, as well as those struggling to find peace with themselves and in their relationships.  I believe our relationships affect our lives in nearly every aspect. Healthy relationships are born from healthy individuals. Therefore, I am passionate about assisting in the process of growth and healing on both an individual and relational level.  I enjoy working with couples to identify what their goals are and work towards harmony. I am experienced in working with trauma, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, attachment problems, betrayal trauma, infidelity, communication issues, and transitions.

I work from a systems perspective, which means that I consider all the various influences in a client’s life.   I use several different modalities that I tailor to the specific client’s needs. I have training in EMDR and have found it to be a powerful tool for healing.  EMDR is a technique that allows the client to reprocess memories in a way that reduces the emotional and physical reactions to them. When memories are not fully processed, they can influence our choices, reactions, feelings, beliefs, etc.  This in turn can affect our relationships and keep us from experiencing life in a healthy enjoyable way. I am also trained in hypnotherapy. This can be a powerful tool for addressing feelings and behaviors that don’t serve the client. In addition to using hypnotherapy for anxiety, depression, procrastination, etc., I have worked with athletes, students, and performers to calm their anxiety. Also, I have training in trauma sensitive yoga and have used these techniques in my sessions with clients.  I believe the body, mind, and soul are all connected and finding balance is key.

I find balance by playing volleyball, skiing, mountain biking, reading, attending shows, traveling, and watching my kids play sports.  My relationships provide me with the peaks and valleys of life. My four kids have taught me much in life’s university. Being their mom is a privilege and a challenge.  I have discovered that not all mothers are the same, just as not all children are the same. Finding what works for each of us is a lifelong pursuit and it may not look like everyone else.  I enjoy my kids and we have made many memories over the years. Each one provides me with a unique relationship that I treasure and learn from.

Garrett Kroon, LPC, NCC
It is not uncommon for individuals and couples to experience significant trauma or difficult life circumstances. My passion is helping those in these situations to find healing and strength. I seek to help my clients, who range from teenagers to adults, individuals, couples, and families, to find strength, balance, and healing.
Through using evidence-based techniques and developing a strong alliance, I hope to help my clients find their happiest, most-authentic selves. I am comfortable getting into the trenches with you and being a part of your journey, no matter where it might lead us. I believe in my clients and I believe in the work I do.

My expertise and training are in couple’s therapy and addressing trauma, grief, and crises of all kinds. This includes depression, anxiety, pornography addiction, sexual abuse, teen issues, and men’s issues. I am a trained Prepare & Enrich facilitator- focusing on pre-marital and marriage therapy. I know each of my clients is unique, and as such, I do not employ a one-size-fits-all approach. My clients can expect to be treated as valued individuals.

My education background includes a BS in Psychology with a minor in Family Studies from Boise State University and Master’s Degree in Counseling- Marriage, Couple, & Family Counseling and Trauma, Grief, & Crisis from Northwest Nazarene University. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, Melissa, and our family. We enjoy being outside, being actively engaged in our church and volunteering, and going on adventures. I often speak to and lead workshops with youth groups, religious organizations, and community organizations on topics that include mental health, emotional well-being, parenting, anger management, improving relationships, and leadership. I am happy to make myself available to speak to any such group near the Treasure Valley.
