About

Gail is passionate about helping people navigate life transitions and develop a toolbox of strategies for emotional wellness in every stage of life. Gail specializes in pregnancy and postpartum mental health and works with parents experiencing depression, anxiety, OCD, grief and trauma-related symptoms. She also works with seasoned parents on issues like stress management and effective discipline. Gail works with adults, children and teens experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and loss, OCD, peer conflict, family communication challenges, self-esteem, gender identity and life transitions.
Gail utilizes an integrative approach with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and narrative therapy as the foundation. Regulation, attachment, assertiveness, mindfulness, problem solving and developing a plan for long-term wellness are key elements of Gail’s work.
Gail uses warmth, acceptance, authenticity, and a calm presence to connect with individuals. She focuses on a client’s strengths and positive “sparkling” moments to inspire hope and develop a positive vision for the future. She helps individuals to find their own voice and learn the tools they need to achieve that vision.
