Hello! My name is Gabriela and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in the state of North Carolina with 11 years of experience working as a therapist in a wide variety of settings. I have experience with treating adults, adolescents and children in individual and family counseling with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger management, parenting, career challenges, grief, OCD, ADHD, behavioral issues, trauma and abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. It is important for me to form a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients for the most beneficial outcomes. I also believe that it is important for the therapist to be personable and relatable! I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, talk therapy and goal setting. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Our sessions will remain confidential but there are times as a therapist that I will have to break the confidentiality rule. These situations include: If I suspect abuse or neglect, if I believe you are in danger of harming yourself or someone else or if you sign a release of information form.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Gabriela has provided the best experience I have ever had with a mental health practitioner. She helps me see ways in which I can improve while consistently affirming my strengths. I have never really felt heard with other practitioners and I finally feel heard with Gabriela. I am so grateful to have this relationship in my life.

Gabriela is warm and easy to talk to. She has a very goal-making-oriented style, and sessions usually consist of going through the week, my short-term goals, and making future goals. She is great to talk to
