About

dgLife 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 the south shores of Tampa Bay, Florida as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). My practice specializes in addictions, anxiety/depression and life transitions.  As a Certified yoga teacher, I'm passionate about integrating yogic breathing techniques in session.

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. I am confident and comfortable "in my skin." A truth teller: I challenge assumptions–yours, mine, the world’s - pretty much anyone who wants to categorize something as intricate as the human experience. I work diligently to help you overcome the things that have kept you stuck. Passionate about my work. I love helping people get through emotional blocks, traumatic events, past relationships and anything else that might be stopping them from having the life they desire. Direct. I don’t waste time beating around the bush. My goal and intention in every session is to help you resolve your problems quickly.  Stop undervaluing yourself and let’s get to work!  I have a message to share and people to serve! Gayle Billings, PhD, LMHC, NCC

"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
