Gail is great to work with. She is flexible with scheduling and last minute changes. She understands my primary concerns in life.

I've been in therapy for almost 8 yrs & gone through a handful of therapists & psychologists in that time. Gail is honestly the BEST person I've worked with, by far. We've been working together for not even 1 1/2 yrs, & it seems like she knows me better than any others had. She's just amazing!

I have only had a few sessions with Gail so far, but we have covered so much ground and such incredible insights for myself. I feel seen and acknowledged, I feel heard and understood, and finally starting to see where I can be with more work.

This is my first time using BetterHelp and going to therapy in a few years and I am surprised how well they matched me up to a therapist. Gail is extremely easy to talk to and she provides insight and outlooks on life that I have never heard before even though i’ve had several therapists. Already within a few weeks, I’ve feel like our sessions have benefited me and I use the techniques she’s taught me for my anxiety. I would highly recommend Gail and BetterHelp!

(I think I've been asked to review a few times already so this may be duplicative, but...)
Gail is a great therapist! She understands what a lot of the big-picture things I want to work on are, and helps me see things from another perspective. She's also an advocate for my mental health, overall well being, and happiness, and she's really helped me get to a better place in life overall. Gail is professional, and thoughtful / checks in with me periodically. I would highly recommend her as a therapist to anyone, particularly for someone going through difficult changes with a relationship - her guidance has been really amazing in this area, and I think helped me sort out a lot of things I needed to sort out. Thank you Gail!
