Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Greg Lyons


We travel the road with you, hope for the hopeful and hopeless! We pair authentic listening with the power of hope.

I received my MS degree in Human Services and Counseling and a Certificate in Employee Assistance from National Louis University in Evanston, Illinois.

I am licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in Florida and as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium. I have 16 years of experience providing therapy and counseling to clients confronted with mental health and substance abuse issues. I have worked both sides of the coin. For 6 years I worked for insurance companies. I have authorized and reviewed utilization of mental health services and substance abuse treatment and provided inpatient and outpatient specialized levels of care to ensure medical necessity and effectiveness. I have assisted with discharge planning and ambulatory follow-up activities. I have also provided telephone triage, crisis intervention, and emergency authorizations as assigned. I have performed concurrent reviews for inpatient care and other levels of care as allowed by experience. I have interacted with Physician Advisors to discuss clinical authorization questions and concerns regarding specific cases. I coordinated with Community Based Care agencies to manage the care for children in specialized levels of care.  I have served as a project manager, instructor and trainer while working with individuals and groups to promote optimum mental health. Additionally, I have expertise in working with juvenile justice systems, youth services and have volunteered in recent years as a case manager for the guardian ad litem program for the state of Florida. I have extensive experience in clinical case management for managed behavioral health organizations. I am also trained In Critical Incident Stress Debriefing and has served on a Psychological First Aid Team responsible for providing brief therapy to victims and natural disasters and crises. As of 2016 I have completed 44 hrs of advance training in Relapse Prevention Therapy from the Center for Applied Science.
