ABOUT

Tanya Gabriel, MA, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, National Certified Counselor & Mindfulness Instructor

"You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it"- Albert Einstein

 

My approach to mental health counseling is compassionate and client centered using evidence-based therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I have been practicing yoga and meditation in many different forms since 2005. I graduated from the University of Texas with a BA in psychology and completed my Masters Degree in Counseling at St Edwards University. I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Hawaii and have been in private practice since 2015.

 

I am passionate about assisting others and incorporating effective techniques within my individual and group counseling sessions. I embrace a holistic approach to therapy tailored to individual client needs. I understand that the therapeutic relationship is an important part of the healing journey and aim to provide a safe haven for my clients to discover their own greatness. With practice, you can navigate the ups and downs of life with more ease, acceptance, and happiness. I know that you have the power within yourself to shift your patterns, but sometimes it helps to have a counselor to hold space for that process.

 

I have been fortunate to call Maui my home since 2015 and am blessed to be part of a large Maui Ohana. When I am not working, you will find me listening to music, meditating, dancing, spending time with my children, and floating peacefully on the ocean.
