Gregg Scharf is the new owner of Garrison Counseling Inc. at 319 Main St. in La Crosse.
Scharf said he bought the business on July 1 from Debbie Garrison, who started it in 2003. She plans to retire by the end of the year.
Scharf received a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Viterbo University in 2014 and has been in private practice since 2017.
“I am keeping the Garrison name as Debbie has built a good reputation as a quality high-end therapy clinic, and I plan to carry on that high standard of service,” Scharf said. It is a private-practice mental health and substance abuse clinic with what Scharf described as an outstanding team of therapists who are specialists in their areas.
“Since the purchase, GCI has been given a complete overhaul in terms of technology and other behind-the-scenes things that mainly allows for the therapists to be able to use their time doing therapy rather than some of the other tedious and time-consuming tasks common in private practice,” he said. GCI also has an office manager for the first time.
The public and professionals are invited to an open house and giveaway of books on psychology and counseling from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at GCI. For more information, call 608-796-1114 or visit www.Garrisoncounselinglax.com.
