Gregory L.H. Gayle, PsyD, MEd, Psychologist in Oakland
We all want to be understood, accepted and loved; this can only happen through honest communication. Making the decision to seek help for you or your family can be part of that communication. I provide a safe space to explore, discuss and process important issues that affect the lives of you and your family members. I have an eclectic approach to providing psychotherapy. As one size does not fit all, therapy cannot be approached in the same way for everyone. It must be tailored to the specific needs, issues and problems that each person uniquely presents.
My clinical specialties include: 1) helping misunderstood and struggling teens navigate their world; 2) supporting concerned parents to better communicate with their children; 3) counseling conflicted couples to strengthen and/or evaluate their relationships; and 4) providing comfort to grieving or cognitively impaired elders.
I enjoy providing compassionate care to people. It is always my goal to provide each person with useful tools and skills with which they can use outside of the therapy room. As well, I take into consideration the impact that physiological, psychosocial and multicultural factors have on mental health.
