About

Waitlist - You are searching for someone who gets you, not your grandma’s therapist. Perhaps you’re feeling tired of your struggles, overwhelmed, frustrated, stuck or thinking will I ever be comfortable in my skin? The voice in your head may be saying that you’re not good enough, you compare yourself to others, getting more anxious or depressed. You’re not sure where to turn or what to do but you know it’s time for a change. Maybe you've grown up in an environment of dysfunction or addiction...you CAN break the cycle of trauma or abuse. Working with the right therapist brings a feeling of safety, support, healing & empowerment.
An integrative, holistic approach to therapy can help quiet your inner critic, find light in the darkness, release trauma & pain & provide you tools that help with anxiety, anger, fear & stress. Working together in a safe environment is key to your healing journey. Emotional well-being is only one part of the whole, along with spiritual & physical balance.
I’m board certified, my style is direct, without judgment, empathic & encouraging. You will leave our session feeling supported, receiving feedback, resources & tools. My intention is that you continue to make progress long after you stop therapy. I support clients who reach out between sessions in a constructive way. Live the life you were meant to, NOW!

Gail Wodkiewicz's Groups

Learning and Using DBT Skills Group

This is a closed group, with a minimum commitment of 12 weeks/groups. We've all found ourselves in a crisis, in conflict with someone or overwhelmed by emotion or circumstances. It can sometimes be difficult to maintain emotional balance. It takes skills to solve life's problems while enduring intense emotion. In DBT, four skills modules are taught. The intent is to help with anger, episodic depression, anxiety, intense relationships, impulsivity, stress and feelings of emptiness. New skills are presented each week and the goal is to gain new skills and to use them when really needed.

Parents of Addicts Group

This is an open group that meets twice monthly to support parents and caregivers of those suffering with addiction. Tools and resources are shared in a safe, nonjudgmental space. Support groups for families of addicts can help for many reasons, and they're one of the best things you can do for yourself if you have an addict in your life. Often people with addicted family members can experience mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, and our group can provide you with emotional stability and support. Sliding scale is available and space is limited, so registration is required.
