About Gayla Gibson
I am the owner-operator of T.A.V.E.R.N. Health and Wellness, LLC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in both Missouri and Illinois and have dedicated my life to the betterment of the people I meet and work with professionally.
It is my belief that for someone to be happy and whole, the person must be fully aligned – mind, body, and spirit. To help clients achieve this, I put into practice 18+ years of education and training in behavioral health treatment and 5+ years of education and training in nutrition and fitness.
Amid my time in the behavioral health field, I worked as a Communication Specialist for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for 17 years. I have served over 19 years in the Air Force Reserve as a medical technician and am a veteran of the Iraq/Afghanistan war. Each of these roles has taught me more about service and enhanced my desire to help others. Additionally, it has given me insight and first hand experience as a first responder, veteran, and service member.
My life is that of a servant leader. I am a tool used to strengthen and empower my clients to shape/reshape themselves into the person they want to be, a person they can be happy with, a person they can love and who they feel is worthy of love.
I look forward to meeting you on your path and encouraging you to continue the journey.
