Gabriella founded Self Image Studio with a mission; to inspire women to give up dieting forever.
We all know that the majority of dieters inevitably gain back all the weight they’ve lost and more. Emotional eating is a coping mechanism, a survival tactic. This self soothing technique is learned early in life to numb uncomfortable feelings. Dieting focuses on the external rather than the internal cues which fuel overeating. The repetitive cycle of gaining and losing weight leads to feelings of hopelessness, shame, failure, and desperation. In order to shift dysfunctional eating patterns, one must identify underlying experiences and belief systems that perpetuate emotional eating.

My specialty is working with girls and women with eating concerns, mood concerns and relationship issues.
Are you feeling lost and alone in your struggles? There are times in life when we need guidance, education and support to navigate through difficult experiences. I recall the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child". I believe we need a village around us for a lifetime. Why go it alone when there are others to help? We are social beings after all. As a therapist, I use an eclectic approach pulling from various methods to best meet your individual needs. I also work closely with other practitioners as needed. My clients often find me to be relaxed, empathic and nurturing, often using humor as a healing element.

I am a mature, highly educated, personable woman with life experience, and I believe an authentic therapist/client relationship is the most important aspect of treatment.
I primarily work with patients who suffer from chronic pain or chronic illness. Simply put, patients need extra attention their loved ones may be unable to provide. I am the founder and clinical director of San Diego Pain and Trauma Institute, located in Sorrento Valley. The mission of this clinic is to provide an integrated approach, with primary care doctors, and doctors from different specialties, trauma-informed care, from physical therapy techniques to the most up to date evidence based practices. I am amongst a small group of professionals studying the relationship between trauma, grief and chronic pain.

As an Asian American woman and therapist of color, I embrace diversity and feel humbled to work with people from all walks of life.
There are moments in life when it all feels like too much and nothing seems to be going right or you know could be better. If this sounds like you, I’d love to connect. I offer therapy to people dealing with anxiety, depression and life transitions related to school, family or relationships. Therapy with me means working together to give you the support you need and find ways to help you start feeling better.

Is your life not where you want it to be? Change is hard. While doing things differently can feel uncomfortable at first, it is possible to do, and becomes more comfortable with time. Change often applies to the behaviors we engage in, or the thoughts that we have. Change can also apply to our relationship with our thoughts, and it is powerful to become less tied to the random thoughts that appear in our head. Let us help you with this! We are passionate about helping people get unstuck and move forward in their lives. Our approach is collaborative and non-judgmental, and includes warmth, compassion and humor.

Sometimes, the more you try to hold it together on the outside, the more you fall apart on the inside. If you are overworked, anxious, depressed, or broken down from trauma or stress, you're probably striving to get back on your feet, catch your breath and regain control over your life to find peace and balance again. It happens to all of us and even the strongest can get knocked down. It's not a weakness to ask for help, but the greatest sign of courage.
