Gabriel Brooks completed his B.A. in Psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2012, and his Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at UBC in 2016. He is currently in his fifth year of the Ph.D. Clinical Psychology program at UBC, under the supervision of Dr. Luke Clark. Gabriel’s research has focused on how certain beliefs relate to problematic gambling and video gaming behaviour. A primary goal of his research is to better understand how the ‘gamblification’ of certain video game features changes the risk of harmful use.
Gabriel’s clinical training has focused on applying evidence-based treatments to anxiety disorders, depression, interpersonal difficulties, and psychosis-related disorders. He has worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and across the adult lifespan. His therapeutic techniques are informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
His objective in therapy is to help you navigate the pathway toward achieving your own personal goals, with the aim of producing lasting improvements to your well-being. In doing this, Gabriel will actively collaborate with you and adjust his therapeutic approach to meet your individual needs. He will bring compassion and a genuine interest about your lived experience, while not losing sight of your goals.
