Val Gill, MA, LMHC
I am a licensed mental health counselor with 17 years of experience working with clients with a variety of concerns. I received my Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Florida Gulf Coast University. I have experience working with clients of all ages and backgrounds and for the past 10 years have worked at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, where I am currently the Director of Clinical and Prevention Services.
As a mental health therapist my goal is to bring a safe, supportive and mindful presence to your current experience, allowing you to cultivate self-acceptance, self-compassion and the ability to notice distressing events without reacting. This type of kind inquiry is a good way to “face our stuff”. I use a variety of treatment approaches which are all client-centered and rooted in the science of compassion, mindfulness and acceptance. I enjoy working together with individuals in overcoming life’s obstacles and helping them to move forward in life. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
