Gabriela is a Raleigh native and Graduate student in the School of Social Work at North Carolina State University with a concentration in Addictions.   She is a recipient of the Health Resources and Services Administration Fellowship that provides training to future clinicians on mental health concerns among adolescent and young adults. Gabriela’s practice is influenced by a diverse background of working with adults in the criminal-legal system, HIV counseling and education with uninsured or underinsured individuals in a community clinic, assisting adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and assessing children and adolescents with traumatic head injuries.  She earned her bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sports Science from UNC Chapel Hill. Upon graduation in May 2023, Gabriela plans to pursue licensure as a Clinical Social Worker and as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist.


Gabriela operates from a person-centered approach and a strengths-based perspective to help individuals become the best versions of themselves.  Every individual is unique.  Every individual has strengths.  Together through this lens, Gabriela works with her clients to explore the impact of anxiety disorders, substance use, gender and sexuality identity exploration, and trauma.  Her goal is to provide a genuine and grounding space for individuals, couples, and families. Gabriela is LGBTQ+ affirming and has a passion for working with non-dominant populations.  She encourages feedback, questions, and transparency with her clients as they work together to become healthier individuals.


Outside of Triangle Wellness and Recovery, Gabriela is an active member of The City of Raleigh Human Relations Commission and President of the Graduate Student Social Work Association. When not volunteering, you can find her exploring nature with her husband and two dogs or gardening.
