When deciding upon a therapist to work with, it is especially important to feel a secure connection with the therapist you choose. I strongly believe that the capacity for healing is deeply rooted in interpersonal connections. My goal as a Psychotherapist for both individuals and couples, is to create a safe and supportive environment where freedom of expression is encouraged and embraced.
I utilize an integrated approach and strengths-based perspective in the treatment of clients suffering with:
I am well trained in assessments, diagnostics, crisis interventions, and ongoing clinical treatment.
My style is comprehensive and holistic. I have a passion for CBT, DBT, NVC and mindfulness practices to enhance and sustain mental health across a continuum of care.
Both my personal and professional experience allow me to be an extremely compassionate and culturally competent therapist. I possess a strong work ethic and am committed to the values of my profession.
My affiliations with the American Institute of Cognitive Therapy as well as with the Albert Ellis Institute in New York have enriched my approach and brought excellent results with clientele.

I spoke to many therapists before finally finding Gabrielle. She provides a great balance of compassion, honesty, and practical guidance. I came to her to help me deal with trauma and we've been using CBT, IFS, schema therapy, a bit of tapping, and other creative exercises, to help me work through these traumas in a healthy way. She really lets you guide the session while still making sure you leave each session feeling that something was accomplished and you have a clear goal. She's been a great fit for my logical personality, and I highly recommend her to anyone who can relate to that way of thinking.
Wow. Gabrielle completely changed my life. I can’t recommend her enough. Not only does she create a super safe and supportive atmosphere, but you can feel her positive and encouraging energy just radiating in our sessions. She has helped me raise my self esteem, work through relationship issues, and general life improvements. I truly look forward to our sessions!
I really enjoyed my cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) sessions with Gabrielle, and they were extremely useful in giving me the tools I needed to overcome problems I was dealing with. Gabrielle truly provides a safe space to say anything that comes to mind; it’s a real judgement-free and warm environment that she creates. Sessions with her managed to change the way I was approaching my issues and altered several of my harmful beliefs about myself.
I could not recommend Gabrielle enough, if you are looking for a positive, life changing experience. Whether you are dealing with relationship problems, self improvement goals or anything having to do with growth, Gabrielle is the person you want to see. I started seeing her five months ago and have seen tangible improvements in my life. She asks all the right questions, to allow you to come to your own conclusions about life. 10/10 would recommend.
I really never thought that finding a therapist online could have a decent outcome. But Gabi is amazing: a genuine force of nature who intuitively knows how to strike the right balance between compassion, insight and tough love. Can't recommend more highly. Feel free to msg me if you have a question.
From Chava Bat Sheva Rosen: Gabrielle is an amazing therapist. I could not have had anyone better. She has helped me in so many ways. Even during really difficult times, she would be there for me. Gabrielle is very patient and has a lot of compassion. She provides good insight and helps bring out the best of people. I would totally recommend her to everyone.
Gabi truly creates a comfortable, safe and honest environment which allowed me to open up and tackle issues that I had been very hesitant to discuss before working with her. She is very understanding and supportive. She helped me identify and put into perspective many of the feelings and challenges that I was facing, coupled with practical tools to move forward. I highly recommend working with Gabi to anyone who is considering to start therapy or looking to change their current therapy/approach.
I came to Gabrielle with uncontrollable anger problems and the intention of acquiring tools to turn things around. Through the use of honest and open dialogue, I was able to gain a lot more than that. She not only helped me understand what the source of my anger was but also how to start anticipating it and changing the way I react to it so that I don't fall back into similar patterns. I now understand my own process and what needs to be going through my head when things start getting a little bit too stressful. Beyond that though, she was able to help me see my own potential to make the life that I want for myself. I highly recommend her, as she truly dedicates herself to the patient and not to the money. She cares, which is sorely lacking in many therapists in this country.
Gabrielle is a really special person because I feel as though she really understands me. It's amazing to be able to talk to someone who understands exactly what you're going through and how to approach the problem. Gabrielle has helped me understand why I think the way I do and how to catch myself when it gets out of hand. I have benefited tremendously from her, as she really gets down to the core of the problem. Because of her, I have been able to take my fear and switch it around. To anyone who is looking to conquer their fear or change their thinking pattern, I highly recommend Gabrielle!
I'm really glad to have Gabrielle as my therapist. She creates a space during our sessions in which I can introspect and express myself freely, and at the same time helps me to focus my thinking in productive directions. She has an easy-going and supportive way about her, and her effort to create rapport really pays off. She has been helping me deal with a variety of issues during a tough period and I'm grateful to her for the compassion and the high-quality care she has provided me.
The first impression of Gabi is she makes you feel comfortable and right at home. which it is. Since I had responded well to CBT therapy before I left the States, I decided I use it again for some present problems that were incurring in my behavior. Gabby makes you feel very engaged and engaged with yourself. She highlights patterns or expressions that you were not aware of, figuring out what the change might be, and pushing you only as far as you wish. But always pushing you to achieve success and feel like a better person that's brave enough to face the challenge of change, while utilizing CBT and DBT methods. Change is usually very difficult and challenging...Gabi'll get you through it.
From a user: Gabrielle helped me navigate through a difficult time coping with depression, anxiety, anger and obsessive thinking. I'm not the kind of guy who spills his guts easily but with Gabrielle I felt comfortable and free to express things that I have not shared before. She helped devise a rational way of dealing with tough challenges and avoid getting emotionally hijacked. Our sessions helped me greatly. I am very grateful to Gabrielle and strongly recommend her services. David Y.
Gabrielle is a warm and encouraging person who really meets you where you are, helps you identify the things holding you back or making you unhappy, and works with you to build strategies to change and grow for a better life. I can't recommend working with her highly enough, she is completely dedicated to what she does and really commits to helping you. Working with Gabrielle has made a huge impact on my life for the better, I'm so grateful to have found her and to have taken the leap to working with her!
I am really happy that I chose to begin working with Gabrielle. It was very hard for me to decide but I am confident that I made the right choice. She really inspires me to work harder on myself. I suffer from depression and PTSD and it is not easy but she helps me feel more hopeful and is always encouraging me to be kind to myself. Meeting with her once a week for an hour has helped me come out of my shell more and I am beginning to feel that I can socialize more because of the work we do. I am learning so much about myself and how I can overcome my issues by using special techniques and tools. CBT is by far the best kind of therapy that I have done. It works on my trauma and my depression. I'm so grateful that I am finally getting better!
Gabrielle is so genuine in her approach in our sessions. I have been to a lot of therapists and I really feel a deep connection with her because she makes me not only feel understood on a very deep level but she also provides an education into my own issues; especially work related issues. I have never had a therapist do that before. She actually gives me reading materials to help me understand myself better and she is very goal-oriented in our work together. She is not one of these therapists who want you to be in the hot seat for too long. I feel like she really wants me to tap into my potential and move on...not just sit in therapy indefinitely. She actually inspires me to find work that is true to my neshama.
I have grown tremendously since I began working with Gabrielle. She is so intuitive and really understands my struggles with anxiety and my other mental health issues. She is so compassionate and so encouraging. I really feel supported, like I'm not so different and all alone with my
I stopped dreaming about my future and lived in self-centered fear most of my life. I attended a day centre in North West London to work on my depression and anxiety. Then, I met Gabi. I started having one to one sessions with her twice a week. Quite quickly ,I realised that Gabi would be able to help me. For the first time in my life, I felt truly understood! Gabi is kind, understanding, patient but most of all she believes in each person that she helps. Over the next few months we worked closely together and I started to see amazing results that I hadn't seen with anyone else before. Gabi taught me how to be kind to myself, to love myself, but most of all, she helped me believe in myself. The reason Gabi is such a good Psychotherapist is because she is really understanding and patient. The main difference between her and other mental health workers is that she doesn't set herself on a different level to her clients. She is not patronising in any way. Gabi loves helping people realise their potential. Now a days, I'm working full-time doing what I love and living life to the fullest.
Gabi Thaler just gets it. With strong intuition, compassion, and sensitivity, Gabi really helped me see the greater picture when I couldn't do it on my own. I felt so understood and accepted during our sessions. This in itself was potent enough to heal some of my broken parts. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for humbly sharing her gifts with me.
