Gayle Kittleson, MA, LMFT

Envision the day you believe “I am enough”. We have so many roles to fulfill—partner, parent, employee, friend—and remember—self care. Experience working in large systems has provided me a unique perspective and understanding of the challenges facing individuals and families today. I have background providing crisis services, suicide assessments and follow up support. Listening, being witness to the grief, stress and trauma of life, stepping alongside individuals to assist them to see options and make choices using their strengths and beliefs is the base of my practice. I work with adults and teens experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma recovery and relationship challenges. I have worked with families involved in child protection, individuals with support needs for mental health, and youth striving to feel connected. I have experience working with grief, coping skills and individuals with intellectual disabilities. Values I hold dear are kindness, caring, consistency, growth and being human. I believe in laughing out loud and sharing tears. I will be real with you. I believe in holistic health, social interest, mind and body connections. I volunteer at a pre-school and elementary school, love to read and find great joy with our family pugs.
