Some of the things my clients said about me

Excellent Therapist
Georgina has been wonderfully supportive, insightful, and caring through my time working with her. I consider her a blessing dealing with my health issues. She always comes up with new ways to help me tackle difficult issues. Whenever we communicate I learn something helpful and feel a sense of peace. Her approach is honest and refreshing.

Friend in my pocket
Georgina is so nice. She is compassionate, flexible, understanding, and patient. She listens and offers her opinion and offers unconditional support. I feel completely comfortable telling her my darkest thoughts and she offers useful suggestions. She checks in often yet gives me the space to just be when I do not have the time or energy to write. Thank you Georgina!


Georgina was very kind and empathic during my sessions. She was especially helpful regarding my father’s abandonment and my mother’s mental illness.I found our sessions very transformative. I learned that therapy is not a bad thing, something to be ashamed of. The benefits of our sessions were bigger than words can express. Georgina made me understand that I am not to blame for the abandonment by my father, Often children blame themselves for whatever problems their parents have. As adults we keep holding on to that pain and this ruins our life. You also made me realize that because I was exposed to my mother’s mental illness I had to grow up fast.
,
When I first met Georgina Nunez I was depressed and addicted to crack cocaine. My self-esteem was down the pits. I had many problems at my job. I am proud to say that I no longer feel that I am an ugly loser. Georgina helped me raise my self-esteem and I kicked my habit. I am now clean and sober. Georgina helped me raise my self-esteem and I kicked my habit. I am now clean and sober. Currently I have a steady job in a hospital and my life is great!

Georgina helped guide me through a very difficult transition as I ended a relationship with an emotionally abusive partner. She held me accountable for the steps I needed to take to protect myself while empathizing with the difficult emotions I was experiencing and sharing generously of herself. I am grateful for her guidance as I navigated this challenging time of my life.

Written by D.I. on Jan 18, 2020 after counseling with Georgina for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and anger management

Georgina is a real human—curious, flawed, smart, humble—and she is open about her extensive and unique life experiences. Because of this I have found her to be one of the most ready empaths and helpful ears of my life—you cannot surprise or disappoint her. She understands that you are a person on a journey and that you’re trying and failing and getting back up. I have always struggled with trying to be “perfect” for therapists and gotten nowhere. With Georgina, I have found a way to be vulnerable, receptive, and accountable, and am quickly seeing huge changes in my personal actions/emotions... and as a result, my life. She’s a good person.

Written by A.N. on Jan 17, 2020 after counseling with Georgina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and addictions

Written by Z.A. on Dec 26, 2019 after counseling with Georgina for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coaching

Georgina is full of life and has an open non judgmental ear to listen to your concerns. She has the ability to point out things in you that you may have ignored in the past. She can also pull from her experiences to truly empathize. Just be sure to clearly set the agenda and talk about what your areas of concern are.

Written by A.L. on Apr 15, 2019 after counseling with Georgina for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

I was definitely matched with the right counselor for me! I have had so many bad experiences with different counselors and I wasn't sure what to expect doing counseling online. But over the months Georgina offered me support to help me with many issues stemming from childhood. She had lots of personal stories that I could relate too which made it easy and comfortable for me to open up and really heal. She is down to earth, funny, interesting and my entire experience has been really wonderful. It feels like you are talking to a friend almost, which is rare since most therapists make you feel like you are under a microscope. I definitely recommend her as a therapist and would search her out again if left better help and came back!

Coupled with her humor I find myself at ease in her presence but also empowered as I begin to tackle a lot of trauma and hurt from my past.

Hi Georgina, I wanted to send you a thank you for everything you have taught me. You gave me the tools/techniques to help me work on my issues, and honestly have made a big difference in my life. Thank you so much again for everything, I spent years thinking that my issues were just "things I had to live with", but you really taught me how to correct my thinking and learn to heal from things I did not have a full understanding of. You are such an amazing person, and have truly changed my life for the better. Thank you!

I was skeptical whether or not this would be a right fit for me and it was comforting knowing I could switch counselors at the click of a button if necessary, but Georgina has made me feel very comfortable. She has helped me tremendously. She’s been very good at helping me redirect my thoughts and change them from negatives to positives. I’m very glad I’ve signed up for this.

Georgina is amazing! Whenever I have a problem she talks me through it in an understanding way.

She’s such a wonder person.
