Professional statement

Gayle Weill is a licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut. She loves working with women who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and relationship issues. She enjoys working with these people because she, too, has been there. She understands these struggles on a level she couldn't without living through them. 

She deeply believes you have the resilience and guts to make it out. However, she doesn't want you to waste time spinning your wheels as she did. She will teach you how to feel your feelings, heal, and move on. 

She is not a smile and nod type of therapist. She rolls up her sleeves, gets in there with you, and has a great BS detector, so she may call you out when needed. She has been in the field too long to be shocked by anything, so you don't need to be afraid to share.

Gayle's goal is to help you to feel understood and validated. She does this by listening and asking questions to help determine the root cause of your distress. 

Once you identify the root, you can figure out how to move forward. Many people come to her saying they don't know where to start or how to explain their issues. That's okay! Let the therapist worry about that. 

Therapy isn't one-size-fits-all. What works for one person may not work for another. Some treatment methods Gayle finds helpful are mindfulness skills, CBT, EMDR, child-parent psychotherapy, role-playing, and hypnosis.

She also has specialized training in child-parent psychotherapy and the Circle of Security parenting program and has a national accreditation and training in adoption competency.

Gayle's biggest strength is helping her clients to feel understood and validated. She is also approachable and non-judgmental.
