About Gayle

WOMEN’S THERAPIST SERVING NY, CT, FL

I will listen to you, challenge you, and empower you to make changes in your life.

Meet Gayle Weill, LCSW

You know there’s something keeping you from your best life. 

I’m here to help you figure out what that “something” is.

I work with women who want to overcome feelings of anxiety, kick parenting stress to the curb, navigate issues related to adoption, and learn how to communicate better with the people they love. 

You may have spent a long time working through these things on your own: you’ve journaled, reflected, and tried to understand what’s going on under the surface. Now, you’re looking for someone who can help you go deeper, to provide the perspective & feedback you need to change your life and relationships. You’re not expecting a magic wand—you’re expecting someone who will dig in with you.

That’s exactly what I’m here to do.

MY STYLE

Kind, but straightforward.
Supportive, but willing to challenge you.

Sessions with me usually look a lot more like a deep conversation than you simply talking. Talking can be very therapeutic (and I promise there will be lots of that!), but I’m someone who will really get in there and be dynamic with you. We’ll brainstorm, bat around ideas, and collaborate on how to help you reach your goals.

Therapy isn’t “one-size-fits all.” Every woman is different and what works for one might not work for another. I tailor sessions to best meet your needs as a unique individual, pulling from my training & experience in methods like hypnosis, EMDR, CBT, mindfulness, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Circle of Security-Parenting, adoption competency, and more. 

I’m a women’s therapist who will help you learn how to manage symptoms and responses, look at situations differently so you can feel differently about them, and learn skills for communicating and creating boundaries more effectively.

Here’s what I believe about therapy:

Once you can understand the root of an issue, you can determine how to move forward.

More About Me

I’m no different from the clients I see. Like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been through both wonderful and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I help. My life experiences are what lead me to become the therapist I am today. 

I never get tired of seeing clients figuring things out and begin to transform their lives. The most rewarding thing about being a therapist is giving hope when people feel hopeless.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Connecticut. Afterwards, I received my Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University. I am a licensed clinical social worker for the states of New York, Connecticut, and Florida. 

Post-licensure, I went through additional trainings and certification programs including the rigorous Implementation-level training in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), becoming a registered Circle of Security – Parenting (COS-P) facilitator, receiving national certification and accreditation in adoption competency from the Center of Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.). I am also EMDR trained and certified in hypnosis.
