Dr. Gayle's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gayle "Cindi Gayle, PhD NCSP is a licensed psychologist in Florida who values inclusion, respect and acceptance of difference through cultural humility. She earned a doctoral degree from the University of Florida where she received training in cognitive behavioral therapy and psychological evaluation in diverse settings (e.g., school, legal, medical and clinical settings). Pursuing her dream of gaining experience in the area of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Dr. Gayle joined the University of Florida's Division of Medical Psychology as a postdoctoral fellow. One year later, she was hired as an Assistant Professor where she worked extensively in both inpatient and outpatient treatment pediatric and adult programs focusing on the evaluation and treatment of OCD and related disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Perinatal/Postpartum mental health, Tics/Tourette's, Trichotillomania, Social Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobias, Panic Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Complex Trauma and Disruptive Behavior Disorders. She was the director and coordinator of various programs related to Psychological Assessment, OCD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. Gayle has specialty training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy including Exposure and Response Prevention, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (Certified Provider and Level 1 Trainer), and Habit Reversal Training for Tics, Tourette's and Trichotillomania. She has experience treating those across the life-span. She also has significant experience teaching and supervising psychiatry residents/fellows, graduate students in mental health training programs (e.g., Clinical, Counseling, School Psychology and Counselor Education), and postdoctoral fellows in psychology. She uses a developmental model when supervising future mental health physicians. Dr. Gayle has engaged in research focused on ASD, OCD and related disorders. Dr. Gayle has presented her work and areas of interest at the local, national, and international level to disseminate information on empirically supported treatments. After several years of working for the University of Florida's College of Medicine, Dr. Gayle is now focusing her efforts on providing direct clinical care, teaching, and community outreach. She serves in a leadership position on the International OCD Foundation's (IOCDF) Diversity Council and Santa Fe College's Spectrum of Success Advisory Board to support college students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and neuro-diversity.
