Gay specializes in:
Clientele: Pre-teens, teens, adults, young adults, parents, couples & families
As a counselor, Gay's goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. By applying complementary therapy approaches, we can explore long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be keeping you from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for supportive guidance through a challenging situation or are ready to move in a new direction, I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy travel especially to the beach and on cruises. My hobbies include reading and working puzzles.
I am passionate about my career and find fulfillment in helping others to reach their full potential.
Working through the issues you are confronting is not a destination but a journey. I am here to help you along your own distinct journey as you develop confidence and newfound skills to positively change your life. Any journey begins with that first, most difficult step which is to reach out to me.
