About Dr. Gail Billings-Beck

Dr. Gail Billings-Beck works with individuals facing transitions in life. She also works with couples, both gay and straight. Her theoretical background is based on the work of Alfred Adler, and her approach is individualized to the needs presented by each client. She specializes in self-esteem, anxiety and depression, anger management, aging and death and dying issues. Sometimes EMDR is used to help deal with past trauma.

Dr. Gail was a pioneer in the field of domestic violence, continuing to work with both victims and perpetrators. Realistic goal setting, anger management, dealing with feelings of hopelessness and helplessness are important in her work. Identifying “the inner enemy” and recognizing triggers is key. Stress management and securing a compassionate inner voice is also fundamental to her work with clients.

Psychotherapy with Dr. Gail helps clients regain perspective and balance. The skills of managing anger and practicing calming, self-soothing exercises is integral to this goal. Increased self-awareness helps make healthy choices possible. Healthy choices quickly improve energy and focus which inevitably leads to positive growth.
