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.
Gina is a great listener and wonderful to talk to.
Gina was very responsive and excellent in our session.
Gina was fantastic, non judgmental and provided much needed calming advice. It felt so good speaking to her, and she was a great listener who put me at ease from day 1. Thank you Gina for all that you have done.
I like Gina’s no nonsense practical approach to counseling.
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
Gina has been very attentive and encouraging. She listens to my issues and responds with compassion and offers great tools for me to handle the things that give me anxiety.
I am really happy with Gina! She is direct and to the point in a kind and supportive no nonsense way. Exactly the strong maternal energy I am needing in my life. Her suggestions are very helpful and have given me new insight and new ways to structure my thoughts.
Gina has been very helpful to me. Her advice is logical and to the point. I would recommend her to others, I feel thankful for her help.

Gina is kind, an attentive listener, and has suggestions that really do help. She has extensive experience that allows her to have deep insights into issues that I face.
Gina is great!
I've had three sessions with Gina so far. She's incredibly responsive, punctual to all our appointments, and is so easy to talk to. She has been an amazing help. Gina gives me tools and technique to work through my anxieties and little worries, and listens intently to me without judgement.
I've only had a few sessions with Gina so far, but she has been supportive and professional. I genuinely appreciate her lack of judgment when I talk about things and her insight.
Gina is incredibly helpful and understands my specific conditions. Whenever I need to talk to someone it is comforting knowing that Gina is available and responds in a timely fashion.
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 very calm and really takes the time to listen. I have enjoyed her as my therapist very much.
Gina has been so wonderful! She’s been really proactive about finding solutions to my issues and helping me create an action plan to get through them. She’s really easy to talk to and I appreciate the help she’s given me.
Gina is attentive, able to voice that she understands my concerns, and definitely gives plenty of resources for me and others to use. I highly recommend her.
Gina has been so helpful!
Gina is great, super easy to talk to and very supportive. She is punctual and attentive, always professional but never dry or distant.
Gina is very attentive and has helped me so much in the short time we have worked together!
Gina always takes the time to really listen to what issues I am having and provide ways for me to handle them. She is also very good at walking me through different issues to maybe put them in a different perspective or to break them down into smaller tasks.
Gina is very professional. She's always on time for our live sessions and I feel really good talking with her. Five stars!
Gina is proactive about finding solutions and answers to my questions, and is very open to different ways of helping me specifically as an individual.
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.
I’ve only been working with Gina for a few session, but she’s very attentive and responsive. Her counsel has been very helpful in getting some issues with my relationship and business figured out.
She very kind hearted and has a warm aura. I'm able to open up to her.
Gina had a lot of really great things to say and provided a lot of information for me. Personally for myself, the response was a little slow at some points. I wasn’t sure if it was an error through the app or not but other than that, she’s a great counselor!
I love Gina! I’ve had one session with her so far, but she’s so wonderful and understanding. I really do appreciate this app and what it does for people, especially her.
