About Me

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 LGBTQ 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. If you are open to longer-term therapy, I'm a big believer that building a relationship between patient and therapist is an investment worth making, and often leads to greater change for the patient.
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.
