About Gregory Haley, MD

Gregory Haley, MD

Psychiatrist located in Scottdale, GA

Dr. Gregory Haley believes in forming a real alliance with his patients at Alianza Healthy Thinking in Scottdale, Georgia. He collaborates with them to understand their challenges and goals, then creates a customized treatment that incorporates medications and psychotherapy for each of them.

Dr. Haley offers psychiatric evaluation and medical management for the full range of psychological disorders. He also specializes in innovative treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation for major depression, and he’s an in-office provider of SuboxoneⓇ for opioid addiction treatment.

Dr. Haley began his medical career in internal medicine, but during a rewarding rotation in the psychiatric crisis evaluation department at Wishard Memorial, he admired how the doctors there helped distressed clients. He also realized he wanted to look at each patient as a whole person rather than a collection of lab tests.

As a result, Dr. Haley re-evaluated the path he wanted to take in medicine. He applied and was accepted for a position in the University of Southern California’s Psychiatric Residency Program. After one year, and missing his family, he transferred back home and completed his training at the Indiana University psychiatric residency program.

Dr. Haley spent his first four years as a psychiatrist working at the company that became BehaviorCorp in Carmel, Indiana. For part of the week, he had his own practice, working with patients with mood, anxiety, and substance abuse disorders. The rest of the week, he worked at the company’s day treatment clinic for clients with intense and chronic mental illness.

He eventually moved to Atlanta, following his family and to escape the bitter Indiana winters. He worked with a mental health center in Athens and Monroe, then briefly with a local private practice before striking out on his own to establish Alianza Healthy Thinking with Elle Trapkin, LCSW.

One of the things Dr. Haley liked best about BehaviorCorp was its informal and homelike atmosphere and how staff and clients intermingled at lunches and events. Dr. Haley and Ms. Trapkin wanted their practice to have the same warm, welcoming feeling that he valued at BehaviorCorp, and based on feedback, they’ve succeeded.

Dr. Haley’s dog, Rex, is with him every day at the office, where they sit in on any session in which they’re welcomed by the clients. Dr. Haley and Rex invite you to come in and let them help make a treatment alliance that will help you.
