Dr. Gale was amazing. She is very professional and willing to work with your schedule to find an appointment time that fits best. She helped me learn how to manage my son's ADHD better. Her sessions are very helpful in teaching parents how to understand the issues their children are facing and how to best fix those issues. I highly recommend Dr. Gale. We went from being kicked out of summer camp to successfully completion of spring break camp. A huge improvement in less than a year.

Dr. Gale was the perfect fit for our family. She was patient and kind in teaching our daughter and us as parents to deal with her anxiety.

Dr. Gale changed our life!!!!
Our child had some behavior issues at school and interacting with others, and we were referred to Dr. Gale. We noticed drastic improvements in just a few months. She worked with the whole family, and we all benefited from her sessions. She was easily reachable via phone, text or email. One of the best benefits was her flexibility to find a good session time to fit both our work schedules and offer alternate times/dates when we had conflicts with our normal session. She clearly defined the goals for our family and each of the milestones we were working to reach. I can’t thank her enough for the change she has made in our life! My child is a new kid!!!

Professional and practical
Working with dr gale was a pleasant experience. She is very professional, works around your schedule when possible and her model of therapy is very hands on which is important when working with children and families. she gave us some useful tools that can be applied daily and have been very helpful to our family. the only recommendation I would have is that it would be nice to incorporate some adult sessions to adress communication issues between parents and or co parents. I would highly recommend her to others

Solid feedback and coaching through family challlenges
Dr. Gale is great! She is approachable, a good listener and gives feedback that considers our unique family dynamics. She has coached us through challenges (mostly tantrums and some extreme aggressive behavior) to help us create healthier patterns of responding to one another. Our home is much more peaceful so I highly recommend her.

A tough situation turned into a rewarding experience.
I skipped around to a few people before meeting Vanja and finally knew she was the person that was going to help me through my rough time. Vanja was so wonderful that I still thank her 5 years later for the skills she was able to give me to cope as a single mother and the direction she gave myself and my child. One thing that stood out the most for me was Vanja's ability to remain professional and non-judgmental and make me feel like she was there to help, not write some bad report about me. She was always gracious, yet stern, on techniques to overcome our obstacles. Her approach was direct yet she was able to listen and guide me based on my circumstances without making me uncomfortable. I really hope you consider Vanja Gayle and trust in her like I have.

wonderful counselor!!
We have been going to Dr.Gale for over 2 years now with our daughter.. she has ADHD and other emotional issues. dr gale has helped us get her focused , see different situations openly without fighting and even gets her to open up honestly about different issues.. Dr. Gale has been so helpful with our communication skills.. this is not easy with our daughter.. she is a tough cookie.. but we do learn something each and every time we meet. We also have been called on the carpet by Dr.Gale when we as parents have done something not so great.. so all in all it is a very good thing we go.. There are times when we cannot get to Dr Gale's office and we do a phone visit.. she is very helpful with our needs as we have some medical issues with my husband.. we appreciate all she has done with our daughter and she even looks forward to going to discuss things.. we try to hold all our issues till we meet with Dr. Gale as it is helpful and keeps things calmer at home..
