My Team

Gail Weldon (Intern)

Hi, I’m Gail,

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but happily relocated to Georgia in 1982 to begin a career as an on-air Radio Disc Jockey at WTIF in Tifton, Georgia.

I found the southern charm, amazing people, and the delightfully warm temperatures immediately to my liking. Not to mention there was no more snow to shovel, so I felt right at home and have been in Georgia ever since. I relocated to Savannah only 7 short years ago, but it has become my home and I’m delighted to call Savannah my new slice of heaven!

Over the years I’ve acquired several associates degrees, a bachelor’s degree, and am currently working on my master’s degree at Walden University for marriage and family therapy. After graduation, I’d like to open my own practice in the Savannah area.

I chose Family First Therapy because I read the excellent reviews, wanted to learn and be supervised by the best, and continue to hone my skills in working with couples and families. I believe being here will help me on my own journey towards continuing to be the best couples and family counselor I can be.

Maya Brassell (Intern)

Hi, I’m Maya,

I’m a bachelor’s level intern here at Family First Therapy. I was born and raised about an hour south of Atlanta in Columbus, Georgia. I’m soon to graduate from Georgia Southern University, Armstrong Campus with a degree in psychology. I have attended Armstrong for three years and truly enjoyed the campus and everything Savannah has to offer. As a psychology major, I’m currently looking into graduate programs that will aid me in my career goal of becoming a clinical psychologist, mental health counselor, or family therapist.  My main desire in becoming a therapist is to help people become a better version of themselves.

I chose Family First Therapy for my internship because I believe the counseling services offered here help people deal with the everyday challenges of life. Like Steve, I truly care about our clients and want to help them in the best way possible. I look forward to helping clients by shadowing Steve, learning the ropes of assessment, and engaging the community.

Whether I speak to you when helping to set up your first appointment, support your intake process, or discuss helpful resources with you, I’m excited about working with you.
