GIbson specializes in a variety of areas including weight loss and management, obesity and bariatric surgery, and other eating disorders.
I love being able to do the work that I do. I feel so fortunate to be able to help people in meeting their goals and building skills for coping with various life stressors. I feel that I have strengths in quickly connecting and helping people to feel comfortable with therapy, which can be uncomfortable at first. I always adapt treatments for what individuals need, and never uses a "one size fits all" philosophy. Each person has specific strengths and needs. Let's partner together to help you in meeting your needs.

Are you less than satisfied with who you've become and the life you're living? Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

My approach is accepting, caring, confidential and non-judgmental, as well as practical and grounded.

This allows for a natural emergence of positive choices, good solutions, and actions that are in alignment with their true selves and deepest desires. I work with individuals, couples, teens and families on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and developing more trust and acceptance, which helps to improve closeness and positive feelings in relationships.

Sometimes, despite best intentions and attempts, making change is not successful. It can be hard to get to where you want to go: less depression or anxiety, better relationships with others, a healthier relationship with yourself, with food, with your body. Maybe the past keeps intruding upon the present, even though it seems like it should be resolved by now. Maybe you don’t feel quite like the best version of yourself and you don’t know why. I'm here to help you get reconnected to yourself, find the inner wisdom that I know exists within you. I don't know all the answers, but I know how to help you find your own answers.

"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

Because our mind and body are one, I strongly believe that for you to move forward emotionally, you need to be moving physically. Walking outside, side by side, as apposed to sitting still and facing you in an office setting, naturally creates a collaborative and supportive approach to therapy. It will feel less threatening to you. Because anxiety is less, more can be accomplished in an hour session of walk and talk therapy, then during the same amount of time in and office.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.
