About Me

I am an experienced Maryland licensed therapist. I have many years working with adults in various stages of life. The people I have helped were living with severe trauma, grief, addiction, divorce, career indecisions, relationship, life adjustment, body image and family problems. When left unresolved, these issues can lead to depression, anxiety, panic and generalized sadness or uneasiness. Sometimes we get stuck and don't know the way out of problems and painful/uncomfortable feelings that just won't go away. That's when we need the support of someone who can help in a warm and caring environment.

You will find my approach to counseling is eclectic. What this means is, we can use a mixture of therapeutic tools based on your own needs. After all, we all have different backgrounds and have experienced different upbringings, cultures, religions, prejudices and home lives. So, after hearing your personal story and what you would like to achieve while here, you will have therapy that reflects your individual needs.

I thought you might like to know a little about the person you will be speaking with. When I'm not counseling, I'm most likely hiking with my two dogs, Baily and Emmy. I love being outdoors but not so much during the winter :) I'm married with 2 grown children and I have a grandson. Oh, and I love to cook. I find cooking for me is relaxing......it puts me in a peaceful zone!

Gale is extremely sweet, has an amazing sense of humor, and is such a good listener. She is very knowledgeable in a lot of different areas and has helped me tremendously.

I love the format of BetterHelp and Galye not only responds promptly she shows compassion and understanding. She has helped me with some very stressful situations I've been experiencing the last few weeks.

Gale has been incredibly helpful in this process. She is very responsive and is very conscientious to make sure we are moving at a speed comfortable for me. She has been open and non-judgmental and very supportive and positive. I have only been working with her for a short time, but already I know she is a good match for me and is a person who cares about helping others.
