Transitions are a part of life; but that doesn't mean they can't be quite a lot to handle! Dr. Gonella specializes in helping individuals cope with transitional phases, whether that means adjusting to new environments and cultures, adjusting to changes that come with age, adjusting to a new school or job, or even adjusting to life with an acquired disability. Every individual at some point in their lives goes through an adjustment, and although many are perfectly poised to handle it well on their own, it never hurts to have some help during these difficult times.

Dr. Gonella is a licensed psychologist with over 8 years of experience and has worked with children, teens, adults, and older adults. She has worked in schools, universities, hospitals, clinics, and private practice. She has helped people cope with depression, anxiety, adjustment, trauma, brain injuries, cognitive issues, disabilities, medical issues, relationship issues, identity crises, loss, cultural adjustment, and more. She also has a special interest in working with individuals from different multicultural backgrounds as she comes from a rich multicultural background herself. She believes the therapeutic process involves commitment, courage, and teamwork and she has a deep respect for those who are willing to get help during difficult times in their lives. Her therapeutic style is eclectic and always catered to the individual, yet she typically utilizes CBT techniques, family systems perspectives, and a client-centered approach. She is eager to share her expertise and work with you!
