About Me

I am licensed in the state of North Carolina. I have 20 years experience. I was licensed in Colorado before moving to North Carolina. I work with all age groups. When I work with children, I often use play therapy and sand tray therapy to help them communicate their needs. I am a certified EMDR therapist, which means that I specialize in trauma issues. I can also clients dealing with with anxiety, depression, stress and anger management.

Feeling accepted and understood is a vital part of the healing process. I provide a warm, welcoming, safe place that helps each client feel it is safe to identify and then address personal issues and problems.

Together we develop a set of goals and objectives that best address the issues and problems presented. This then results in a healthier and more satisfying relationship in all areas of life.

Gaye has been the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s professional but still warm. Her experience with EMDR and her confidence in leading me through sessions put me at ease and helped me to trust her quickly. Therapy with her has made an enormous impact on my health and healing.

Gaye is a good ear to listen. I have only had a few sessions, but she lets you control your road. You decide what you want to talk about. Be honest with yourself, and her.

Gaye has been such a great help working through a few PTSD and social anxiety issues. She was also a wonderful ear to just vent and reflect on the minutæ of weekly life.

If you need someone to talk to, or have specific issues to work on, she is more than capable of navigating you through the forest.

I highly recommend her, and thank her.

I would still be with her if BetterHelp were affordable...

Extremely helpful, like talking to an old friend you haven't seen in a while.
