About me

I am a Professional Clinical Counselor independently licensed in New Mexico with 8 years of experience.
I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and PTSD. I’ve also helped coach people on how to reach goals, make important life decisions, and create a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in their life.
My counseling style is client-centered, collaborative, and solution-focused.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, Dialectical behavioral and Internal Family Systems. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Some of the techniques I’ve used in the past are journaling, dream analysis, mindfulness practices, phototherapy, stoicism, and logotherapy.
I look forward to getting to know you better and helping you on your journey in self-discovery!

Gayle is really helpful at coming up with things to think about or even try as far as therapy is concerned. I don't feel like I'm alone in my journey, and I feel like she's really in my corner!

Gayle is great she is a great ally and is always flexible. Listens well but isn't afraid to challenge (in good ways) definitely knows how to use the betterhelp site and worksheets and other tools.
