About Me

Hello, I'm Gail Newman, dedicated to aiding individuals in navigating their mental health and overall well-being. I take pride in my role as a versatile generalist practitioner, skilled at addressing various challenges people may seek counseling for.

My therapeutic approach centers on evidence-based practices and a person-centered philosophy. This means I use my clinical expertise to actively address your concerns, ensuring the treatment plan aligns with your specific circumstances.

I greatly value your unique identity, recognizing that your values, identities, and strengths are crucial in our therapeutic journey.

Whether you're overcoming trauma, managing mental health concerns, or seeking guidance on life's challenges, I am here to provide unwavering support every step of the way.

Education & Experience

My educational journey led me to the University at Albany, where I successfully completed the Mental Health Counseling Program. This pivotal phase equipped me with a strong foundation in mental health counseling and provided a platform to refine my skills in trauma treatment. Throughout this journey, I engaged in an internship at Pros RSS, where I immersed myself in the realms of crisis and trauma therapy within the broader context of generalist psychotherapy. My experience includes working with families through Functional Family Therapy, serving as a first responder for Mobile Crisis, and offering support to individuals of all ages, couples, families, and groups. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), further enhancing my capabilities in trauma work.
