More about me

Licensing: LMFT, LPC
Years in Practice: 18
State: IL

My goal is to help people better understand and accept themselves. I strive to identify barriers to happiness and develop a road map toward greater health. I like to begin with getting an understanding of presenting issues and current life circumstances and working toward an individual’s vision for the future. I use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Family Counseling Theory to explore experiences that shape our beliefs, expectations, and preferences. I help a client examine these thoughts and ideals and to challenge those concepts that may be detrimental, limiting, or no longer functional. I use Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing to assist with mood management, decision making, and problem solving. I also assist with developing communication skills to help with self-advocacy.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist currently living and working in Chicago. I graduated from the Family Institute at Northwestern., and throughout my 17 years as a counselor I have worked with many difficulties individuals, families, and couples can face. I have specific experience helping people navigate relationships, anxiety and mental illness, and general stress management.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Among other outstanding things about Gabe is that he proactively reached out to me, which in my case is often something I need. Not enough good things to say about this pro!

I love being able to talj with Gabe. He has offered me lots of different tools and resources to help me. He is also great about checking to make sure he really understands what I am struggling with. If he is off the mark in his suggestions he is quick to make sure he offers tools that will work for me.

I am new to BetterHelp. Gabriel Seldess has been very responsive to my messages and sends me messages just to see how I am doing. I have been able to open up to him and share things with him that I have never shared with the people closest to me. He is a great confidant, and I can't wait to dig in deeper with him.

Gabe is a remarkable counselor and an even better listener. He really understands what I’m going through and lets me know what I can do to help change my situation. He makes me very hopeful for the future and it makes me happy that I know he’s out there changing others lives for the better.
