I am a professional clinical counselor licensed in Ohio for the past 5+ years with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor. I am nationally certified in addiction counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD and addiction. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I am currently being certified in EMDR to help clients process PTSD symptoms.
My counseling style is engaging, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, rational-emotive counseling and solution-focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I will work with you to help change cognitive distortions and negative thinking. I will encourage you and support you as you do the work that it takes for change.
I look forward to working with you!

Always there to listen and provides tools for me to go back and work on. The tools have been helpful to move through difficult times without using unhealthy devices to coup

I really appreciate the way that she listens and advocates! She makes me feel comfortable to be myself and cry if needed. To put it in perspective, my job changed health providers and I could no longer see Gina through my insurance. Well, I had to come back to her regardless because she’s really helped me.
