Gabrielle DiVincenzo, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, emphasizes the innate capacity for effective connection and communication in all individuals. She specializes in assisting individuals and couples in developing the necessary skills for satisfying communication and overcoming obstacles to deeper connections. In addition to her focus on relationships, Gabrielle provides support for clients dealing with depression, anxiety, and self-esteem issues.
Drawing from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gabrielle helps clients identify and work through conflicting attachments and unresolved concerns, leading to improvements in mood and relationships. She also assists clients in recognizing and replacing unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors with those that promote personal growth, which can be particularly beneficial for depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and interpersonal struggles. Her model also provides a framework for addressing trauma and painful experiences. In couples therapy, partners work through past wounds while gaining new skills for improved communication, connection and enjoyment.
Drawing from her training at Hofstra University, Gabrielle offers a distinctive perspective on common issues within couples and families. While her primary focus is on adults, her experience working with children and teenagers at the Family and Child’s Association on Long Island has enriched her understanding of diverse family stressors and dynamics.
