court cases involving
Murder or attempted murder
In his private practice, Dr. Gransee focuses on providing his unique brand of therapeutic intervention, involving a combination of insight-oriented and solution-focused treatment. The goal is to support the individual in becoming the best version of themselves they can be, through increased awareness of problem areas, and improved confidence in the ability to become the best that they can be. Depression, anxiety, anger, and other emotional or behavioral issues are viewed as evidence that the individual is overwhelmed/agitated by their life choices, and not as permanent conditions that are not able to be corrected.
