Gary Gabbard

(Licensed, Professional, Counselor, Supervisor)

About Me

I agree to "love, honor and cherish" my spouse. In the dramas of life, somehow that gets lost and marriages have some tough times, ending in divorce statistically in
a little over 50% of the time. I enjoy working with couples. I am able to stay neutral and avoid taking sides. I am interactive in the sessions, will challenge harmful behaviors and offer better ways to interact and resolve conflict. I utilize psycho-educational information and homework to facilitate positive change. When I can get the couple to let go of their pride, find humility and look in the mirror instead of a magnifying glass, they sense more control and good things happen. Often they walk away from therapy and live their lives "passionately ever after".

Written by N.I. on Sep 19, 2020 after counseling with Gary for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Gary is very responsive and most of all very approachable. He made me feel safe and comfortable during our sessions. I have had a couple of sessions so far but I would definitely recommend him.

Gary has been the best. He's always right on the money with advice and guidance. It's been a great experience.

My husband and I have spoke with several counselors and Gary is by far our top pick. He is very thorough, gives adequate guidance, and I recommend him 10/10.

Gary does a great job intentionally and thoughtfully listening. He hears what your concerns are and helps you to look inward to find a solution, as opposed to dwelling on the things around you that you are unable to control.
