She truly helped me in my last session. I applied her advice to the situation in my life that was stressing me and it worked beautifully. Very thankful for the session I had with her. I could be open and honest with her and was completely at ease.

Written by K.I. on Nov 13, 2019 after counseling with Gina for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Gina is a god-send. I have BPD and it has been exceptionally hard for me to find a good therapist. I've tried numerous CBT therapists in the past, and while they've helped with initial diagnosis and some facets of my life; I needed someone who could create an action item-like plan for me to follow. I've only had 3 sessions and already I can feel my life changing in very positive ways

I have only had Gina for two sessions, but I already feel quite comfortable with her and listened to. She’s given me different exercises to practice when I’m feeling overwhelmed or unworthy that have helped. I look forward to more lessons and to ‘putting in the work’ on myself as it were, with Gina. I would recommend her!

Gina is the second counselor I have matched with on BetterHelp. I feel that she is much better than the first because she replies in a timely fashion. I take her advice seriously and she is always an unbiased perspective but also empathizes with me and makes me realize when I am being too hard on myself. It has been really nice to have this emotional support.
