I feel like I’m growing into myself with Gina’s help. I am not vulnerable generally bc I don’t feel safe but when I’m talking to Gina I feel validated that it’s ok to have feelings and feel pain. I’m thankful to have met her

Gina is the first therapist I've ever met with that seems to actually listen to what's been happening with me and responds to me as an individual instead of with something generic or out of a textbook. I feel seen and cared about with Gina and that's letting me start to care about myself too. She's truly incredible.

I highly recommend Gina to anyone that needs a therapist who is mindful of your feelings and emotions. She answers my messages in a timely manner. She's knowledgeable about the things that I need help with. She recommends books and materials that helps along my journey
