If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been feeling stressed, frustrated, sad, and overwhelmed—maybe for a very long time.
You’re completely fed up because nothing changes no matter what you do. Shouldn’t you feel better already with all this inner work you’re doing?
You’ve tried everything—self-help books, therapy, meditation, and retreats. Maybe you’ve even tasted the deep peace of awakening to your true nature.
Yet you still worry. You still react in the same way to the same people and situations, maybe year after year. You’re still dealing with your past or resenting your childhood. It feels like you’ll never find your way out of the pain.
Perhaps you’re lost, confused, and don’t feel good about yourself or your life. You’re hard on yourself with an inner critic that bullies you. You’re caught in thoughts that make you anxious—and they won’t stop. You wear yourself out trying to fix everyone, including yourself. It seems impossible to calm down. Will these feelings never end?
You feel stuck in every way no matter what you try. You want desperately to fix your problems, but your relationships aren’t working, your work life isn’t working, and you don’t feel happy inside.
You you’re a spiritual seeker who so longs to feel peace and joy—but you just can’t seem to find your way there. You just know there’s something more.
And there is…
It is absolutely possible for you to feel the peace you long for.
How would your life be different if you knew how to find your way out of suffering in any moment?
Imagine knowing exactly what to do to feel better when you feel sad, anxious, and overwhelmed. Finally, you’re hopeful that things can actually change. You’re ready to learn how to makes these changes.
Instead of feelings suddenly overtaking you, picture yourself taking a deep breath, slowing things down, and asking yourself, “What do I really want?” You’re ready to learn how to be aware of what you’re experiencing so you can make conscious choices that support your well-being.
You can taste the possibility of enjoying your relationships and feeling good about yourself and the way you show up in your life—in your friendships, with your partner and children, in your work. You’re ready to give it one more try to experience the relief you long for.
Instead of ending up in the same unsatisfying situations over and over, you’re eager to make choices in your life that keep you feeling present and connected inside. You begin to trust that you’re able to be truly happy—maybe for the first time in your life. You’re ready for the insights that will free you.
Imagine starting to notice the simple pleasures in life instead of feeling trapped in old patterns or unhealthy behaviors that don’t bring you peace. Finally, you have space to feel relaxed, calm, and joyful. You’re open to the help that can show you a new way.
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
How would you like to:
- Feel whole, spacious, and deeply okay—rather than being too hard on yourself by listening to the critical voice in your head?
- Feel better about your past?
- Know what to do with your busy mind filled with worries and negative thoughts?
- Make choices in your relationships, your work, and are aligned with the deepest truth?
- Feel fully alive and aware, present to the moments of this precious life?
With loving care, we open to the ways you suffer: the subtle depression or anxiety, the fear that holds you back, believing you’re broken or not enough, feeling stuck or confused, unfinished grief. Understanding exactly how these patterns work reveals the path to being free of them.
Sessions for Getting Unstuck
We’ll meet online, so you can live anywhere in the world. We’ll dive in together to understand the exact mechanics of how you get stuck—and when you understand this, immediately things start to change.
With a fresh perspective on your problems, you’ll learn helpful tools that you can use any time you’re stuck. And you begin to move forward in your life feeling more confident, calm, and connected than you’ve ever felt before.
I’m totally on your side, as a licensed clinical psychologist and coach with over 20 years of experience. I hold the possibility for your deepest healing and happiness even if you can’t see it. I bring to the work a comprehensive knowledge of psychological treatment and the loving presence that invites you into harmony with all of life.
Here’s what you’ll get:
You’ll fill out a short questionnaire to help us get clear on where you’re feeling stuck and where you want to start. We’ll both know how you’d like to begin our work together.
Conversations Tailored to Your Needs
In our 60-minute session, we’ll untangle the frustration, worry, or unhappiness you experience so you’ll know how you get stuck. As a result of our conversation, you’ll finally feel understood, accepted, and seen.
After each session, you’ll come away with life-changing skills you can bring to any moment when you’re struggling. Using these skills, your painful feelings start to lose their power over you. You’ll know how to stay relaxed with yourself so you can get a clear perspective—even when things are hard.
And I’ll be right in there with you guiding you.
You’ll receive two guided audio meditations I’ve recorded to help you learn two essential skills that you’ll practice in our sessions. They’re brief and practical and will help you get through any time overwhelming feelings take over.
We’ll Reconnect and Check In
With each session, we’ll follow up to see how you’re doing. We’ll celebrate what’s helping you, and fine tune as needed. You’ll feel supported, encouraged, and optimistic. Using the right skills and insights, feelings don’t have to overwhelm you. Now you know that you can experience peace deeper than you’ve ever felt before.

People are saying:
“With Gail’s assistance and advice over the past 4 years I have healed from a near fatal illness and post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition, she helped me transition from a stressful career into a more meaningful lifestyle. I am grateful for Gail’s kind and thoughtful insight, supportive words, and patience when I was stuck or when my ego got in the way. She is an amazing teacher, writer, and observer of life. I highly recommend her blog, private sessions, and counseling. She has helped me change my life.” ~Megan Mori, author
“As a doctoral student of clinical psychology, and a client of many past therapists, I have had the most transformative psychological experiences by working with Dr. Brenner. The unconditional positive regard that I feel from her inspires me to accept and love myself the way I am, and make positive changes in my life. I value her wisdom, passion for this work, and her natural way of facilitating insight with me. What I find most refreshing about her as a therapist is that she is not attached to the stories and endless analyses that I can make to find reason for my behaviors. Instead, she constantly reminds of me of my “true self,” which lies behind all of the programming — a self that has the freedom to act according to personal values, and most of all, a self that is special and full of goodness. Since I have seen her, I have felt like a light is being brought out in me.” ~I.T.
“I’m so grateful to Gail for her gentle, powerful healing presence. Though I’ve been meditating for many years, I’ve had great difficulty releasing the darkest experiences of my childhood. Whenever these early memories got triggered, I felt as if I’d ‘lose my light’ and downspiral in despair. With Gail’s sensitive, loving guidance, I was able to be fully present and shine the light in these scary, dark corners. I’ve felt freer and more whole ever since. Thank you Gail!” ~Hilary Nicholls, DC
“Gail has helped me regain my authentic self. She has facilitated my journey to inner peace and joy, to realize that I really am enough, and that my happiness resides inside myself. On this journey, I have been able to release strong resentments and remain, happy, in a marriage that I thought might be too damaged to repair. I have found the strength and courage to be ME. I continue to grow in unexpected ways under her guidance.” ~L.C.
“While searching the internet for helpful information on managing anxiety, I came across Gail’s website. What a great find! Her gentle yet effective suggestions impressed me immediately. I was happy to see that she was available for sessions via Skype and immediately went about scheduling, and thanks to Gail’s prompt response, set up a meeting very quickly. Our Skype session began right on time and was pleasant and comfortable…actually exceeding my expectations. I have never had an experience of one single session being so helpful! Gail has since responded to follow up emails with constructive suggestions. It is clear to me that Gail is sincerely dedicated to helping people to live their lives fully and happily. I feel so fortunate to have met her and to be learning from her.” ~Rebecca Harris
“Gail is an amazing therapist who is both a guide and mentor. In our private sessions, she helped me to understand my strong emotions and learn that I can simply welcome my feelings and physical sensations while remaining aware of the present moment and all of my choices. She helped me to see that I don’t have to wait for someone to change or something to happen that fixes the past and ensures the future. When I resist happiness and fun because of my past conditioning, I’m the one who is blocking my path, and I can stop, breathe, and make a different choice. Gail showed me that my journey is like a treasure hunt where each piece reveals the next, and if I go inside myself to listen carefully, I can find all of the answers.” ~S.M.
