I have had the opportunity to work with diverse populations in the mental health field. I am passionate about taking on the journey with people to assist them with identifying the interconnections of different parts of their lives. Once the relations are known, then it is easier to understand the way each part affects another. My educational background has equipped me with the skills needed to assist people, address their needs, and meet them where they are. Since everyone is different and no specific modality can fit everyone, I work from a collaborative, strength-based approach, using modalities such as CBT, mindfulness therapy, reality therapy, and positive psychology. I encourage people to pursue a holistic approach to health, which incorporates exercise, sleep, nutrition, relationships, spiritual practices, and hobbies.

From the first session I could tell that she has a good understanding of how to keep the conversation going and focused on the things that matter. It wifely really natural and her patience and insight is extremely helpful with anxious people like myself.

Gaelle is a wonderful listener and really connects with you instantly. I almost gave up on therapy until I found her. I’ve already had two sessions it feels so natural to say all that is on my mind. I’ve never had that before. I would recommend Gaelle to any Black woman out there looking to connect with a therapist
