Paula S. Gilbert, LMHC

Hi, I know there are some days when you feel like your wishes and dreams seem far out of reach. That you don’t have the energy, tools, and support to keep going. You may feel unfocussed and confused about what your life purposes are, or even what the next step looks like. Big changes may have knocked you off your chosen path and you need to rethink. Everything is more difficult without the proper tools and guidance to move forward.

I am Paula S. Gilbert, LMHC, a Licensed Counselor, Psychotherapist, and Coach. My mission is to empower you. I love nothing more than to offer you all the wisdom, tools, support and education that I’ve received over a lifetime of learning and practicing. We will uproot your outmoded beliefs, feelings and behaviors, and build up the resources and qualities you need to get where you decide to go. You will learn self love and compassion, key ingredients in your life’s journey.

I am always happiest when I am serving you. When I’m not working, you will usually find me on my yoga mat, embodying the Warrior and the many other creatures and shapes that challenge my body and keep my mind and heart open. I look forward to hearing about you, your challenges and your deep desires.
