Gabrielle Burton , MA, LMFT
Lead Therapist at Evoke Therapy Intensives
Gabrielle Burton is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She is very excited to be able to support Intensives participants through their journey at Evoke as she has attended an Intensive herself several years ago and it changed her life! Gabrielle has worked in a variety of therapeutic settings from St. Jude's Ranch for Children, serving teens in the foster care system to working in a K-8 charter school as a clinician onsite. Currently she runs her own telehealth private practice and offers coaching services.
Education & Prior Work Experience
Gabrielle earned her bachelor’s degree from Bethel University in Saint Paul, Minnesota and a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Lincoln Christian University. Right after college, she spent a year in Los Angeles serving at a shelter for women and children who were survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. She knew she wanted to be a therapist before that experience but she became a different kind of therapist because of that experience.
Gabrielle enjoys the arts and believes that they are very therapeutic. She often finds her clients’ creative outlets and utilizes them in the therapy process. She has created and facilitated creative arts camps to teach teens about the importance of art and character-building. Because she believes each person has unique gifts and talents that will increase the value of the world, she has made an art of bringing out the golden treasure in everyone, and affectionately refers to herself as a "gold digger."
In her spare time, Gabrielle enjoys singing, dancing, acting, photography, working out, taking road trips, and reading a good book. Fun Facts about Gabrielle: she used to sing with a Grammy-Award Winning Singing Ensemble called the Sounds of Blackness. When Gabrielle is not working with her clients, she is often in the studio recording music, dancing or creating content on mental health.
