My therapeutic style in 3 words: authentic, warm and compassionate
My specialty in 1 sentence: I specialize in helping people to understand and have compassion for their struggles, whether it be past trauma, ineffective behaviors, or life stress, in order to heal, change and live a meaningful life.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with nearly a decade of experience in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns. I have extensive training in evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, as well as specialized training in Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure for trauma.
My approach to therapy is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore and understand your struggles and to help you obtain the tools necessary to be more effective in living the life you want. I believe it is by having acceptance and compassion for the things you may not like about yourself or want to change that you are able to find more effective ways of experiencing and living your life. My goal as a therapist is to understand and appreciate your unique life experience in order to help you do this.
In addition to private practice, I have worked as the Team Lead on the women’s unit of a mental health residential rehabilitation treatment program and currently work in a medical center’s outpatient mental health clinic, where I provide psychotherapy and supervise trainees. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and my graduate degree from Georgia State University in Atlanta. I look forward to taking these experiences and helping you with your current circumstances.

My therapeutic style in 3 words: Authentic, Curious, and Compassionate
My specialty in 1 sentence: I specialize in helping people learn ways of rescripting their life and engaging in more effective behaviors whether that be related to their addiction, past traumas, depression, work stress, or relationship difficulties.
I am a Clinical Psychologist with years of research and clinical experience working in academic medical centers and addiction treatment facilities. My work focuses specifically on the evidence-based treatment of addiction, trauma, and mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression. I see my goal in therapy as helping you truly understand the parts of your life most impacting you in order to gain the tools, insights, and skills necessary to live the life you want. I hope to help you write new scripts to your life, engage in behaviors that are more effective, and ultimately have a new emotional experience that will provide the pathway to the life you want.
I provide individual, couples, and group therapy focused on these issues as well as other concerns, such as life transition, work stress management, etc. Throughout my work, I use evidence-based treatments and have been trained extensively in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure for Trauma.
I strive to come from a place of compassion and empathy because, as humans, we all have patterns, messages, and lessons that constantly show up in our lives. These patterns seem to show up over and over but with a similar theme. The more conscious and mindful we can become of these patterns, the more freedom we can have from them.

Gabrielle Lewine, PhD
Registered Psychological Assistant PSY-94025664
Doctoral Alma Mater: University of Southern California
Undergraduate Alma Mater: Boston College
My therapeutic style in 3 words: genuine, thoughtful, present
My specialty in 1 sentence: I specialize in helping people recognize and free themselves from unhelpful patterns in their lives to increase their sense of meaning and their understanding of themselves.
I am a registered psychological assistant with years of experience working with clients who are diverse in terms of their identities and their struggles. I see therapy as a space of honest exploration of who you are, what is most important to you, and what is holding you back from living a more fulfilling life. My role is to listen carefully and compassionately so that, together, we can identify patterns, especially ones that may not be serving you anymore. I firmly believe that awareness of these patterns is half the battle. Then, I use a creative and collaborative approach to help you make changes in how you relate to yourself and how you cope with problems in your life.
I specialize in evidence-based treatment and have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy,as well as psychodynamic, emotion-focused, and mindfulness-based approaches. I provide individual, couple, and group therapy. Throughout my work, I flexibly integrate the above approaches on a moment-by-moment and session-by-session basis to meet you where you are and help you grow.
I often hear from my clients: “I wish I had reached out sooner but I didn’t know how to ask for help.” Whatever it is you may be struggling with, it’s not a burden you have to carry alone. I would welcome the opportunity to help you on your journey to becoming your future self.
