Gabi is a pre-licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of Science in Clinical & Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. Though it may seem impossible at times, everyone is capable of change. Therapy can help any person develop a greater sense of self, while enhancing an innate ability to endure and thrive in life. Gabi's work with you will be based on your unique personality and will aim to alleviate symptoms as you work in tandem to understand the roots of the presenting problems. No one is "broken" or in need of "fixing", just in pain and in need of guidance. She has worked primarly with teens and adults struggling with the following issues:

  • Low Self Esteem and Negative Body Image
  • Unhealthy Relationships with Exercise and Food
  • Feeding and Eating Disorders
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Intrapersonal/Interpersonal Conflict
  • Adoption-Related Concerns
  • Self-harm and Suicidal Ideation
  • Sleep Disruption and Insomnia

It is Gabi's belief that the relationship between a therapist and her client is the true agent of change, so she works hard to tailor sessions to each client's personality, allowing them to feel safe and comfortable enough to explore. The utilization of creative expression can be incredibly beneficial to the therapeutic process, so exercises in writing, art, and games is common practice in Gabi's office.
