I am a MA, LPCC, and LADC. My diverse training through the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School
of Addiction Studies, as well as training through the Mayo Clinic has enriched my understanding of holistic wellness. Additionally, I have experience in a wide variety of treatment environments with diverse clientele and understand that treatment is most effective when care is tailored
with respect for the individual. To create this tailored therapeutic approach, I use an eclectic process which draws on cognitive, narrative, and solution focused therapy. Additionally, I identify as a creative and write, record, and perform original music with a specialization in recovery music. These modalities allow for me to provide a creative, experiential, compassionate, trauma informed, and person-centered approach and therapeutic style.
I specialize in addiction treatment and recovery and am able to guide you through the initial substance use assessment, all the phases of recovery, and towards ongoing wellness and maintenance. I also have a passion for mental health healing, and am skilled with relationship challenges, familial
challenges, families seeking support for their loved ones, self-exploration, and trauma.

I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Grief, Intimacy-related issues

Gil is very personable and easy to talk to. Gives us homework that has brought us closer.
We have had great support from Gilbert. As this was the first time either my husband or I had done any kind of counselling we weren't sure what to expect, but Gilbert has made the process easy and actually in some ways fun. Over just a couple of sessions he has been able to bring a gentle structure to my husband and I rebuilding our marriage. So many thanks to Gilbert.
