Gail McCarthy, LHMC

McCarthy

Gail has an extensive history of helping families overcome addictions and coping with custodial issues, while focusing on the ultimate goal of reconciliation. Gail spent seven years at The Arnette House, a children's shelter, helping adolescents deal with trauma, behavioral problems and truancy issues. During her counseling career, she also worked with Kids Central, and the Department of Children and Families, helping families solve and overcome stressful issues often faced by families torn apart by trauma. Gail assisted families in moving forward in a positive direction while monitoring behavior modifications, and assisting clients through the court systems.

Gail spent three years working in the field for The Centers in Marion County, Florida helping to develop Family Behavioral Therapy, a program designed by Dr. Bradley Donohue of Las Vegas University. Dr. Donahue personally taught Gail and her colleagues his specialized program which is still utilized successfully at The Centers. Family Behavioral Therapy focuses on helping individuals learn how to recognize abandonment, addiction, abuse, and painful stored emotions. Helping a client face unresolved grief from their past, frees the client to accept their past and move forward.

As humans, we spend a great deal of time reacting to things we cannot control, instead of focusing on the three things we can control: our emotional, mental, and physical health. When we cannot control negative events in our life, we often find ourselves looking for a distraction through substances like alcohol, or drugs, or find ourselves lost in depression. By following an individualized treatment plan, Gail believes that her clients can overcome what could have seemed to them to be an insurmountable hurdle.

Combining Family Behavioral Therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gail will help you reach your goals of having a more functional, productive, and most importantly, healthy and happy lifestyle. She can help you re-establish yourself as a positive and contributing member of our community by exploring your future career goals and discovering your true potential. Gail has over 10 years experience working with teens and adolescents with addictions, eating disorders, and behavioral challenges. She also works with couples and individuals for counseling on a variety of issues.

Let healing become a source of regeneration and vitality for your future and stop wasting energy and time focusing on your past. Let yourself heal, accept and learn from your past through unconditional love and forgiveness.
