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.

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..
