Gail Walker, LPC
Hello! I want to congratulate you on taking the first step toward self care. I am an older adult serving clients in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. If you are looking for a Licensed Professional Counselor with 30 years of professional work experience, then I am the counselor for you!
The majority of my work has been with adult individuals. Sorry, I don't do couples counseling, but I am open to family members jumping in on some of the individual sessions.
Using mindfulness based therapies has been helpful in working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and job stress. It works well with addictions too. Hypnotherapy is another option for those clients who want to learn how to increase their focus and get more immediate relief from stressors.
As a former teacher I love sharing tips on coping skills. Most of all I love working with clients who share their knowledge with me. My belief is that you, as a client, have everything you need to know within you. In our partnership, we will discover those obstacles that block you from recovery. It is a very freeing experience that I hope you will begin soon.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Compassion fatigue, Military and Veterans Issues
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy

My time with Gail was very good. I appreciated and valued her time and expertise. She was very kind and helpful. I am leaving mainly for person reasons but may come back at a later time.

She listens to what I say. I can be a bit overwhelming, but she has no trouble understanding and cutting through the noise to see what I mean.

I couldn’t ask for a better therapist. Gail responds quickly, is flexible with time and checks on me throughout the week. Most importantly, I can feel from my sessions with her that she is kind, caring, and empathetic. What I love the most about her is she doesn’t tell me what to do, but helps me think what might be best for a certain situation. Thank you, Gail for everything that you do.
