I'm Gabrielle, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York State. Since I graduated from Rhode Island College's Master of Social Work program in 2010, a majority of my work experience has been gained in the practice areas of HIV/AIDS and mental health. In particular I have focused my work on oppressed communities, including LGBT folks, people of color, immigrants, and patients who are limited English speakers. Much of my experience has been in the outpatient mental health setting, where I have amassed years of practice treating trauma, mood disorders, and anxiety. Though I'm trained as a generalist social worker and am always aware of the environment and its effects on my patients, I have specific training in positive psychology, cognitive techniques, and solution focused treatment modalities.
A note for prospective patients:
For ethical and professional reasons, I ask that all of my patients participate in at least an initial phone or video session. I believe it is necessary for us to "meet" in order to establish some rapport, and for me to assess your needs. In general, I strongly prefer patients who want to attend regular live sessions, as opposed to messaging only. Not only does it help for rapport and assessment, but it helps me to see my patients' progress. Additionally, the modalities I am trained to use rely on live, verbal communication. If you have extenuating circumstances that make it difficult to talk by phone or video (for example a disability or technological challenges), please let me know and I will consider on a case-by-case basis.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes

Gabrielle has been so resourceful and knowledgeable in assessing and providing the appropriate support specific to my needs and situations. I have been working with her for approximately 5 to 6 months and I have drastically improved in my mental and emotional well being. I am incredibly grateful for her service and time.
I have very much enjoyed working with Gabrielle. She is very open to listening and providing feedback. She also validates my thoughts and feelings and that is very helpful. An unbiased third party.
She is amazing, always responds promptly and has given me resources to help me through what I am going through. Highly recommend her!
Gabrielle is a fantastic counselor. She has listened to my concerns and helped me talk through several ideas for making my current situation better. She follows up and has been a great support.
