Gabrielle Salomone, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Gabrielle Salomone received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and then a few years later her Masters in Social Work from Widener University.

She practices from the theoretical orientation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, focusing on how thoughts and feelings impact our behaviors and incorporating exposure therapy to change behaviors. She encourages her clients, through behavioral activation, to slowly incorporate back into their lives enjoyable activities, routines and value-based goals that have decreased or are being avoided due to their eating disorder/depression/anxiety/OCD. Gabrielle has experience working in just about every area of mental health treatment, at every level of treatment, and with clients across all ages. She specializes in working with clients struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, and OCD. Gabrielle has received training through working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, The Renfrew Center and Roger's Behavioral Health. Gabrielle provides a safe and comfortable atmosphere and she believes in building trusting therapeutic relationships with all her clients.
