"If you are ready to invest in restructuring your unsatisfying relationship patterns, look no further than Gabrielle. The results I have seen from her couple therapy work with the very troubled couples whom I have referred to her, have truly raised the bar for what I believe is possible in couple therapy.  Highly recommended!"

Will Van Derveer MD Integrative Psychiatric Healing Center

"Gabrielle Usatynski is a world-class marriage counselor. I trust her as my go-to person when my patients are in need of couples therapy. She is truly gifted at what she does and is one of the most compassionate and skillful practitioners I’ve ever met. Her clients have told me that the transformation that they have undergone in their relationships as a result of their marriage therapy with her has been nothing short of astounding. She has helped them achieve healing, connection and intimacy in ways they never could have imagined. Whether your relationship is in crisis or you just want to take it to a new level, she is the professional to see."

"I just wanted to reach out and say thank you again for all these many months of working with my husband and I. I am absolutely amazed at your skill and your persistence at getting to root issues.  It takes something very special to do what you do hour after hour with the intensity of old trauma and new emotions revealing themselves. You told me in the beginning that PACT therapy could be as powerful as individual therapy ...now I see what you meant.  I feel like a different person from when we started and I owe much of that to you."

I really like the progression. I feel like I am going to have many more tools in the repertoire and our future marriage will subsequently benefit over our lifetime.

Gabrielle provides highly insightful input and actionable "advice" -- which is really more like training on how to handle the most hot-button moments that every marriage has after 25+ years together. I recommend you read the "My Approach" section on Gabrielle's website. It's extremely accurate. Marriage is hard, but Gabrielle is a caring expert and the time we've spent with her already shows clear results.

Both of us have seen therapists over the years and nothing like this has ever occurred. This approach with Gabrielle was intense, time well spent, emotionally draining, and right on! I have taught communication courses at the university level for 20 years at both undergrad and graduate levels. I finally could see a personal application of nonverbal communication that I had sensed, but had not named. The intense review of our childhoods and the obvious comparisons and similarities worked wonders.

We are mental health professionals who have seen three previous couples therapists. The PACT approach is unique and revolutionary. You can't learn these body based techniques in a book. By learning to read and understand each other's nervous systems, our ability to connect and communicate has improved dramatically. This therapy is a big commitment of time, energy and money but if you're serious about learning a new way to be in relationship, Gabrielle is the one.

Gabrielle has given us to tools to breakdown our past behaviors to build a marriage of love, trust and true partnership. There is no book on this but practice learning how to not trigger behaviors that hurt. I am thankful that we found her since our marriage was in trouble. I married my husband because I love him but we needed to refocus on how we talk, treat and communicate with each other!

Gabrielle Usatynski is very experienced into getting the mother to understand how she is affecting her daughter by going deep yet providing a safe and secure environment to explore obstacles. I would highly recommend her to mothers and daughters that are struggling with relationship and wanting to learn new ways to be close and respectful and fair.
