Gabriel Rischall, LCSW (he/him)
Child & Family Therapist

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean
I believe that everyone has the capacity to live a healthy and fulfilling life.  I also recognize that every child and every family is unique and complex, as well as the reasons why therapy is sought.  If therapy is needed, I believe the foundation to a successful therapeutic relationship starts with trust and respect.  Too often, children and families are quickly labeled as having a “problem” without a better understanding of the greater picture. A cornerstone of my practice is working from a systems perspective to truly understand not merely the challenges, but also the strengths of children and their families.  Indeed, acknowledging a difficult life transition, unhealthy relationship, or general behavioral concerns can be a challenge in itself.  As a therapist, I work to create a supportive and safe environment that minimizes these inherent fears.  I utilize many different evidence based modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, and play therapy while focusing on the strengths of both the children and their families.
