Now Accepting Students For Our 2024 Summer Social Skills Programs

Welcome to Dr. Gale's
Practice Website!

Welcome!

I am a clinical psychologist licensed in California (PSY10598), Hawaii (PSY 1478), and Massachusetts (PY4135). Below, you can find out much more about my practice specialities. Briefly, I mostly work with students, parents, and schools in the areas of social learning (social skills), teaching and training, and assessment. The primary diagnoses I treat include ADHD, ASD, ODD, plus anxiety disorders. I provide a range of services to schools, including live training and self-paced learning. I also provide technology consultation to practices and organizations.

My primary work occurs in California. However, I also travel, primarily for expert case assessments, trainings and consultations related to my company, BehaviorTech Solutions, Inc.

My education and training occurred at UCLA, Florida State University, and Boston Children's Hospital. I was Chief Psychologist of the Inpatient Psychiatry Division at Cedars-Sinai and have been on the PENT Leadership Team through the California Department of Education working with school districts throughout the state since 2003.

I am certified as a Nonpublic Agency through the California Department of Education, and serve as a vendorized Regional Center provider.

If you have any questions or are seeking services, please feel free to contact me or my staff by using our contact form.
