Gayle Sherman Crandell, MA, LPCC, Counselor in Saint Paul
I've had the honor of journeying with hundreds of people over the last 30 years who are facing difficult life transitions. I value people's strengths, experience, knowledge and dreams in THEIR counseling, and I believe deeply that we all can change in profound ways.
I work with people experiencing transition in their lives because of coupling or uncoupling, issues surrounding parenting (including choosing not to have children, infertility and adoption), their's and other's health challenges, loss and grief, our parents growing older, our bodies getting older, our dreams for the future.
My work is described by clients as caring, humor-filled, not-judging, hopeful, and collaborative. I feel privileged to consult with individuals, couples and families at these important times in their lives.
