Gabby received her Bachelor of Arts in Literature and a Master’s Degree in Applied Mathematics at Arizona State University. She completed her Masters in Clinical Mental Health through Denver Seminary’s CACREP accredited program. She has experience working in private practice, public and private school counseling for adolescents and adults, and church settings where she had the opportunity to work with clients struggling with identity conflict marked by eating disorders, depression, anxiety, relational conflict, and low self-esteem as well as adolescents with neurosocial complexities (i.e. ADHD, Autism spectrum, turrets, and global developmental delays).
At Restoration, Gabby primarily provides counseling for women with a focus in the area of identity, emotion, and relationship development as well as individuals struggling with mood and behavior dysregulation due to cognitive functions that may be different from their peers. Her goal in therapy is to provide a nonjudgmental and loving presence for clients as they walk through past and present difficulties, with the ultimate healing, freedom, and restoration.
Gabby also works as a Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills trainer at Restoration. This allows her to teach individuals skills in the areas of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. She believes these skills can equip individuals with the tools necessary to live a confident, enjoyable, and balanced life.
