The mission of the Acacia Center is to provide psychotherapy, counseling, and psychological assessment of the highest quality for the people in our community. We strive to offer our services to all people, including under-served populations.
Dr. Shay Gable provides hypnotherapy for a wide range of behavioral concerns and psychological problems, including smoking cessation, weight loss, relief from post-traumatic stress symptoms, and many others.
NOTE: Is the primary person seeing trans clients at the Acacia Center.
I saw her back in 2009. She and her staff were always respectful of my chosen name and pronouns (though a bit disorganized). She was an okay therapist for me, but pretty into the "gatekeeper" role. When I needed a letter for top surgery, I went elsewhere because she wanted to do a bunch of sessions, and I didn't have the insurance/money for that.
Dr. Gable is wonderful! My teen trans son has been seeing her and she has been a great help for both of us. Dr. Gable follows WPATH and writes letters for hormones and surgery.
