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.

"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.

I help my clients survive and thrive during challenging life transitions. A new city or a new job, moving out of the parents house or moving into retirement, starting over after broken partnership or dealing with an empty nest—these kinds of massive changes can be overwhelming. Most of your old routines and assumptions suddenly fly out the window. Sometimes it can feel like you have to learn how to do life all over again. Major life transitions can drain you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I can't promise the road ahead will be easy, but I can help guide you through it with empathy, accountability, and kindness.

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.
