Gail Noppe-Brandon, LCSW, MPA, MA, has over 25 years of experience in narratology. Her method has been used by universities, social service organizations, and individuals to bring authenticity, empathy, and clarity to dialogue…with self, and with others. Additionally, through her former non-profit, Find Your Voice, Gail has helped hundreds of people (including entrepreneurs, managers, clinicians, educators, students, parents & artists) discover their voices.

Gail served as Assistant Dean of Arts & Science at NYU and holds an MA in Writing, an MPA in Organizational Development, and an LMSW in clinical social work. A graduate of LaGuardia High School for the Arts, in addition to being an SSDC theatre director, Gail is a published playwright and was the first ever recipient of the Drama League’s Grant for New Works. She is author of three books, several chapters and many articles on voicing and revising self-narratives, and is a featured Communication Coach on PBS. A documentary film about her work received the Chris Award at the Columbus International Film Festival in 2008.

Her Narratological method has been endorsed by such organizations as the Heyman Center for Philanthropy, Bank Street and Hunter Colleges, the New York City Department of Education, and The Society for Professional Marketing Services. Noppe-Brandon is a master teacher who has received five Carnegie Awards for Excellence, as well as an award from the President’s Council on the Humanities. She has given talks and trainings at: National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), The Jewish Board of Family & Children’s Services (JBFCS), The Constructivist Psychology Network (CPN), and The Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center (PPSC). She was in clinical practice at the JBFCS Manhattan West/Greenberg Counseling Center from 2010-2105, and currently provides therapy, coaching and training to individuals and groups privately.

Gail’s Narratology practice evolved out of her non-profit organization, Find Your Voice (FYV), which used dramatic writing as a source of self-discovery. For 25 years, FYV helped people of all ages and backgrounds articulate and revise their stories, and develop the flexibility to change their lives. The award winning FYV method, which used the tools of acting and playwriting, also enhanced emotional intelligence and boosted communication skills.
