About Me

​Gabriel Vega Counseling, PLLC strives to meet the virtual, trauma-informed, therapeutic needs of marginalized and disenfranchised individuals in New Hampshire. ​My specialties include treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Dissociative Disorders, and symptoms related to complex developmental trauma. I specifically provide virtual Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for adults 18+. My other specialties include depression, gender-diverse populations, anxiety, minority stress, family conflict, and providing culturally competent treatment. EMDR therapy can also treat phobias, addiction, phantom limb pain, critical incidents, and behavioral and self-esteem issues. Established in 2022: After the COVID-19 pandemic started, it became clear that people needed trauma-informed mental health support that went beyond the typical office visit. Gabriel Vega Counseling, PLLC understands that cutting travel time, reducing exposure to illness or extreme weather events, and accepting technology as a helpful tool, are just a few ways our new “normal” can be embraced. My Goal: My ultimate goal is to provide exceptional clinical mental health counseling with the convenience of virtual service delivery - whether in your home, office, car, park bench, or wherever you see fit.​ My passion comes from a mix of the following significant experiences: My own experiences as an openly gay and Latino therapist in New Hampshire, as well as the unfortunate experiences of friends, families, and communities around the world who experience tragic injustices due to aspects of themselves and the surrounding culture that they cannot control. Leaving my family in New Jersey to pursue my career in New Hampshire has been a challenging yet enriching journey and process, and I plan to use what I have learned to enhance my trauma-informed private practice. Rates: $200.00 Per Session. Gabriel Vega Counseling, PLLC is only able to accept self-pay while the process of accepting insurance is finalized. ​I currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner‘s Club, JCB and checks.
