Gail Shak, Ph.D.Welcome! My name is Gail Shak, and I appreciate you taking the time to visit the website for my private psychotherapy practice in Burlingame, California.

Since you've found my website, it's likely you've either been searching for a psychologist, or someone has mentioned my name and you're here to learn more about me to decide if I can help you.

Perhaps you've been dealing with painful or unproductive relationships, or you've been wondering about your success at work, or dealing with feelings of anxiety and depression, or having difficulty coping with a loss or change.

Regardless of the particular issues you're facing, if you're looking for professional help it's likely you've been trying to cope on your own with the issues you face — trying things this way or that, and hoping for some sort of improvement.

Acknowledging that what you've been doing isn't working, knowing you can use some help, and seeking out that help, are signs of strength and courage. By looking for professional assistance, you are taking an important step towards your own well being. You can create a better life, and you deserve the professional help you're seeking.

As a psychologist I help both individuals and couples effectively resolve issues by evaluating problems, relationships, and options from a fresh perspective.

I am dedicated to respecting the values of each individual with whom I work, and to working together with each client to create personal and professional growth and fulfilling relationships.

If you've been in therapy in the past, you know it can be a positive life-changing process. If you haven't, you are about to experience how therapy can help free you and allow you to move forward in your life with confidence. Working together, we will make things better.

To find out more about the services I offer, I encourage you to review this website using the links to the left, or you may navigate to a particular topic of interest on the following list:

In therapy, we will work together to understand how things got to be the way they are today, and we will work together to change and improve your life in the days ahead.

I extend my respect and congratulations to you for taking the first brave step of seeking help. Now the next courageous step is to schedule an appointment. Please feel free to contact me at 650-375-1588 or at with any questions you have or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you, but the person you're really going to meet is yourself!
