Gayle Bondy's transition to Orange County


After 25 years of professional experience in Modesto, California, I moved to Orange County in September 2007. I left a thriving private practice with a three week waiting list, long term friends, and a broad community networking base. I was well known in the legal community, having spent 20 years as a full time social worker supervisor at Child Protective Services. During my CPS years, I also worked part time evenings for ten years counseling convicted sex offenders Monday nights through Mental Health. I also worked three evenings a week at Memorial Hospital's EAP program counseling individuals and families for nine years. In 2002, I joined a group of 8 friends in their private practice, Balanced Living Counseling. After my retirement from the county in 2004, I counseled full time.

The move to Orange County has fulfilled my longing to be closer to my children and young grandchildren, to live in the sun year round, and to establish a new practice which I now have in Lake Forest. By agreement with my co-therapist friends in Modesto, I am bringing the name Balanced Living Counseling with me. I am also continuing BLC's dedication to "balancing mind, body and spirit."
