Life has taught me many lessons. Being open and honest is essential to creating the comfort needed for growth and change. I am grateful for my Midwest heritage that helped instill courage in me. I am me and I welcome you to be you. 

Growing up in South Dakota, I was the first in my family to attend college. I have my PhD in Health Psychology and am a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I have practiced in Hawaii, California and am now settled in Florida as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). My practice specializes in addictions, anxiety/depression and life transitions. I'm passionate about meditation and yoga; as a Registered Yoga Alliance (RYT), Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) Certified, Member of the International Kundalini Yoga Teacher’s Association (IKYTA) - I love teaching yoga. 

It requires skill, knowledge, intuition and humility to help people grow and heal. I have the best job: I journey with amazing people as they learn to create happy, healthy lives. 

Gayle Billingsley, PhD, LMHC, NCC 

The following reviews are posted on behalf of clients: 

"I am in my mid 60's and I can't believe how easy it was to meet with Dr. Gayle. From the bottom of my heart, I am most grateful for this help and it means the world to me." Sandra C./Sun City Center, FL 

"After my three sessions of EMDR, I have to say that for the first time, I feel in control of my life. I feel like I have a voice. Prior to EMDR, I was paralyzed with fear and anxiety.  I could have remained in traditional therapy for the rest of my life and never reached this state of understanding so rapidly." Laurie T./Riverview, FL

"My counseling sessions were life changing. I instantly felt welcomed and at ease when I met with Dr. Gayle. She has a non-judgmental and beautiful spirit. You'll want to schedule your appointment too!" Wendy B./Kailua Kona, HI  

"My sessions with Dr. Gayle were comforting. She is kind, caring and compassionate." Caroline M./Hilo, HI 

"Memories from the past squeezed the happiness out of the present. In an effort to resolve the past, I was ruining my life in the here and now. My significant relationships have improved tremendously because I don't project past hurts onto present situations." Trudy B./Shell Beach, CA 

"With Dr. Gayle's eclectic techniques, together we found a way to shift my emotional experiences." Michelle M./San Luis Obispo, CA
