"If nothing changes, nothing changes. If you keep doing what you're doing, you're going to keep getting what you're getting. You want change, make some" - Courtney C. Stevens 

Hi, I'm Gabby Wnek. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker but you can call me a yoga enthusiast, beach lover and big time Disney fan. I believe that we all have the ability to change and grow and become who we want to be and love. You already have all of this inside of you, even if you do not see or feel it at this moment. 

Healing is difficult, scary, and at times lonely. 

"This will never go away. I am stuck. I can't do this anymore. I am never going to get better. I just want this to be over. My brain won't shut up!"

I have said these words numerous times during my journey of chronic pain and chronic anxiety. My clients reflect that they have as well. I thought that the pain and anxiety were never going to get better, so I know how you feel. With doing something new and different, things will improve, no matter how stuck, afraid, and alone you are feeling. 

My approach with therapy addresses the mind, body, and soul. I provide a healing, non-judgmental, and safe space to explore and learn new techniques and coping skills. I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Yoga, Somatic Experiencing for trauma, and various other resources that I have found to be of benefit on my healing journey. 

I hope to guide you on this scary and fulfilling path and be a part of your healing journey toward pain reduction, decreased anxiety, learning, and finding your truth and purpose. I am happy to schedule a 15 minute free consultation to see if this is a good fit for you. 

When I am not providing therapy I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, doing diamond art, reading, going on adventures, and doing my own dip nails at home! 

Schedule a free 15-min phone consultation or session today.
