Dr. Gretchen Kubacky

Hello! I’m Dr. Gretchen Kubacky.  I’m a health psychologist, bereavement specialist, and motivator par excellence.  I’ve got over a decade’s worth of experience helping people move out of the deepest pain, depression, and anxiety, and into a healthier, happier life.

I know what it’s like to be deeply saddened and confused – even paralyzed – by the most terrible and unimaginable losses and life experiences.   I will help you get to a place where you are able to say you are thriving, have grown from your pain,  and have discovered a renewed sense of joy and purpose in life.

Please call me today at (310) 625-6083, or click here to send an e-mail so we can get started on your healing. To your health!

Testimonials / About Dr. Gretchen

  • Dr. Gretchen is one of the most amazing women I have had the pleasure to get to know. She is someone who takes confidentiality to the highest level, providing a safe environment, allowing what is important to be important. She has such a talent for bringing confidence and knowledge to my life, allowing me, to feel more sane and "normal." She is the hidden gem you have been looking for: loving, kind, thoughtful and fully available to your needs and attention. She is a true, true professional in every way and I would, without hesitation, not only recommend her but have recommended her to friends and family because I feel she would take excellent time and care with them.

  • This was the best Brown Bag presentation I have ever attended. Dr. Kubacky was fantastic! Very informative, very interesting, very stimulating - thank you for this presentation.
    Presentation Attendee, Licensed Psychologist
  • I met Gretchen at a professional conference last year and she has since joined our inCYST network of providers for polycystic ovary syndrome. She loves what she does, and it shines through, from her thorough knowledge of her specialty to her enthusiasm for sharing her knowledge and experience with others. I recently received an email from a customer who shared that she'd started her own career path and wanted it to follow the education, counseling, and outreach trail that Gretchen has blazed. That inspiration says it all.

  • In 2008, I began a grief support group at my church and needed a professional to assist me. Gretchen was recommended to me by Airport Marina Counseling in Westchester. She was co-facilitator with me for two eight-week sessions. I was impressed with her knowledge on the grieving process, her empathy, kindness and patience.

  • Gretchen Kubacky was invited as a guest speaker at Campion Mental Health Center in our December 2009 Monthly In-Service Training. She provided an excellent training and was very engaging in her presentation with the audience. I would recommend her to other training and educational institutes.
