Gals Institute, LLC – Empowering our Children for a Brighter Future

The Gals Institute, LLC

“We focus on PREVENTION… because we know that small problems can become BIG problems
(and it’s always easier to solve small problems.)

We focus on HEALING… because we know that life is hard, and everyone has challenges, and none of us does it alone.”

What is the Gals Institute, LLC?

I was wondering, too. So I met with Deanna Marincic, who is the founder and owner, back in December 2016. We sat down together at her office in Delafield (right next to Target – how handy!). Let me tell you – this woman is passionate about her clinic and our families that make up our community. Upon entering the lower level office that day, I immediately felt relaxed due to her welcoming personality and to the office’s relaxing teal hues and comfy, inviting couch. She then explained to me that the Gals Institute, LLC is a thriving clinic where families go for prevention programs and building of healthy relationships with themselves and others.

Fast forward to June 2018, and I again had the privilege to sit down with Deanna. She has taken her passion and made amazing action and positive changes in our communities. Plus, she’s moved offices. You’ll still find Gals by Target in Delafield, but she has expanded into a new space with a group room.
 

Who does the Gals Institute, LLC serve?

Not just girls – do not let their name fool you! The therapy services they offer are for girls AND BOYS. Also, not just teens – they have licensed clinicians trained to provide therapy to children 5 years and up.

What does the Gals Institute do?

They provide one and one, marital/couples and group process therapies. They continue to grow in services and with providers to better serve families in our community.

But my children are not yet adolescents; is the Gals Institute, LLC relevant for my family?

Yes! As stated above, they have licensed clinicians to provide therapy to children ages five and up.  Two clinicians were on staff in January 2017, and now in 2018 there are 4 clinicians who can treat children ages 5 and up. Early intervention is very important to promoting resiliency among our children.

What other services besides workshops and therapy sessions do they offer?

In addition to counseling services, there is a nutritionist on staff. When we do not feed our bodies good food, our bodies do not feel good. When we do not feel physically well, it impacts our emotions and mental health, too. Joelle Lefevre is a clinical dietitian, who specializes in the emotional and physical connection as they go together, looking at our bodies from a more holistic perspective. Joelle is available to meet with individuals who may struggle with a unhealthy relationship with food or with individuals who are looking to make changes in their diet in a healthy way.

So, Gals Institute, LLC, offers workshops, therapy, and nutritional services. Anything else?
