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!

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’m so grateful for having met Heorhina Nunez! She has been helping me tremendously to shift my perspectives and accelerate healing. She is kind, compassionate, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. It’s taken me many tries until I found someone as amazing as her!

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.

Upon meeting Georgina Nunez I was feeling lost, reckless and on the edge of self destruction. Georgina welcomed me with a connection that I've never felt with any other professional therapist. Georgina gave me the tools to live a better life. As an abuse, attachment issues, Breast Cancer, Depression, PTSD survivor I feel Georgina has helped me see my strength in my struggles. I can never thank her enough.

Georgina is amazing! Whenever I have a problem she talks me through it in an understanding way. I was hesitant to use this service at first, for fear of being told I shouldn’t be feeling this way or such, but she never gave me cause to feel judged or my feelings were “wrong”. She’s such a wonder person.

I feel lucky to have met Georgina, I grew up always feeling like nobody could ever truly understand what I go through but thanks to Georgina I finally feel understood. She has also helped me realize, many of my negative habits come from what I have gone through and how to work through them so I can be happy.

Georgina is very intuitive about how a person feels and how to best respond. I was pleased and surprised that she used her own personal experiences to help guide me through my issues.
