I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Utah with over 5 years of experience working as a counselor and with teenagers. I have worked with clients in crisis situations, with normal day-to-day stressors, with depression, and with trauma. I have worked with families who are dealing with parenting challenges and struggling to connect with their children. I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing, Crisis Response, Trauma focused CBT, and DBT with my own research into IFS.
My approach with therapy is to help you feel at ease and comfortable. It is always challenging to find the right counselor and I do my best to make the therapy environment warm and inviting. I will work with you as we move forward to accomplish your goals. If there is something that I don't know, I will do my best to find those answers for you.
I look forward to working with you!

Gabriela is very helpful and understanding. She never makes me feel like I’m crazy or alone. Always great advice and is so good at listening.

Gabie is the best therapist I've ever had. I've worked with many therapists over my many years of mental health battles. While some of those in the past were perfectly fine, Gabie is on a whole different level. Gabie has provided me with more profound insights in the few months I've been working with her than all of the other therapists I've worked with COMBINED. She listens when I need to be heard, validates me when I need to be validated, and challenges me when I need to be challenged. She's changed my life for the better and I am eternally grateful for her and the help she's given me.

Finding the right therapist can be stressful and incredibly difficult. You truly have to feel comfortable and know it's the right fit, which again, can be hard. I'm the type of person who has stayed with past therapist because it was just easier, insurance would only cover them, etc.
From our first session it was very clear that Gabie is an active listener and gives you her whole self during sessions. She asks the right questions, brings so much insight to each conversation and is supportive and nonjudgemental. Our sessions continue to build on the last and I truly feel heard. I look forward to our chats and appreciate her kindness and the way she so naturally guides you to self success.
Gabie is a gem and I truly thankful to have her as a resource in my life.

She is very easy to talk to. She is able to put my feelings into words without me being able to find the words myself. I have just barely started with her and she has already helped so much and opened my eyes to more then what I thought I was looking at.

Gabie has helped me realize things I wouldn't have unless someone else said it to me. She is extremely kind and knowledgable. Above all, she pushed me into a direction where I can now feel accomplished. Through all the worksheets and multiple consultations her expertise never fails to amaze.
