About Me

Hello, my name is Gail. I am a licensed mental health counselor. I have specialized in trauma, mood disturbances, and in substance. I have broad experience as a psychotherapist. I love working with individuals, couples, and families. I also have experience with anxiety, depression, bipolar, codependency, negative thinking styles, phase of life, adjustment issues, self-esteem, social anxiety, feeling stuck, conflicts in relationships, loss of a sense of self, and other issues we face in life that can be confusing or just make us question our own perspectives.
I love the work I do! I am completely invested in helping you feel better and find resolution to whatever issue may be a barrier to your sense of happiness. I am person-centered in my approach. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, brief therapy, positive psychology and solution-focused techniques. I am flexible in my approach as there is no one-size-fits-all approach to counseling. It is a journey unique to each individual. I am nonjudgmental, empathetic, supportive, and I have lots of understanding. I realize it takes great courage to reach out to another person and trust is paramount. You can be sure I will treat you with respect and value your trust! I look forward to walking WITH YOU on your journey! No issue is too big or too small. I can be there for you to listen, to offer ideas, or provide support and validation. I believe in possibilities, options, and solutions. I am passionate about this work and I am happy to share my enthusiasm, hope, and inspiration with you. Let's get started, together, in finding the answers that you need! I look forward to talking with you and working with you!

Gail is an incredibly insightful therapist. She was a very good match for me and provided support, tools, and resources all along the way. Gail goes above and beyond to communicate and help you know that you are taken care of. She is also very clear on how to move forward, giving you the path to make headway toward a healthier life.
