 Gary D. Frankel, LICSW

Gary sees clients in the Hannah’s House office in the Mad River Valley Health Center in Waitsfield, in his office in Waterbury and at some HUUSD schools.

Gary specializes in working with adolescents, young adults and families that are experiencing anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and identity issues.  “Young adults, individuals and families face many complex challenges today and taking care of their mental health should be as much of a priority as their physical health. I believe that the therapeutic process should be client centered and based on unconditional acceptance and connection.”  Gary’s therapeutic approach is based on a relationship building model steeped in motivational enhancement and cognitive behavioral therapies.  His style can be described as engaging, creative and solutions focused.
