About me

I am a clinical mental health counselor licensed in Florida and Hawaii with seven years of experience. Counseling is my second career path, as I am also a licensed pharmacist with over 28 years of experience. I have worked with many clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is to work as a team with my clients to figure out what works best for them. I believe in treating all individuals from all walks of life with respect and compassion. My theoretical approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, reality therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, career/vocational counseling, and mindfulness. I will personalize our sessions and your therapeutic treatment plan to meet your unique needs and goals.

It takes courage and strength to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. So I commend you for that. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Thank you! Always a pleasure speaking to Gayle Branson…
Professional, courteous, kind, but most of all compassionate. Always has a great deal of practical information. Glad to have found better help. She is, to put it bluntly “Real” from my very first conversation. A true benefit for this single mom of two girls. Thank you!

I can honestly say I never felt more at peace and had such confidence in my future after just a couple of video sessions with Dr. Gayle Branson. She really dug deep into the root of my negative thinking and gave me helpful tools to overcome harmful thought pattens that have held me back from truly living. She’s responsive to my journals, insightful, encouraging, empathetic and a very good listener. She even goes above and beyond, covering other topics outside my initial concern and why I turned to counseling. Couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. Thank you Dr. Gayle!
