About me

As a teenager, I struggled academically and socially at school to fit in with my peers. I had a hard time with my studies. Not knowing that I have dyslexia caused me much grief. My mom and dad chalked my bad grades and attitude up to just being a teenager, but it was more than that. I was struggling with anxiety and self doubt. This lead me into abusive relationships and a eating disorder. After I had worked through my issues, I decided I wanted to help people find their purpose in life. I have worked for the past 8 years as a professional counselor for children and adults. The children I work with everyday, are not only at risk of not succeeding in school, but also in danger of a lifetime of struggling with mental health issues. I have worked with children and teenagers in and out of the Juvenile systems as well as alternative schools. I have also worked with people that have struggled with anxiety and confusion over their sexual orientation. They struggle with how or if or when to tell the world and their friends and family about their life style. My job is to help you find yourself, and to speak for yourself in a more positive and productive way. Having worked as a grief counselor for Hospice has also allowed me to understand grief and loss. I would love to help you through your journey. My theory of counseling follows a client center approach and I believe cognitive behavior therapy is the most effective way to meet your needs. If you need an open-minded, understanding counselor, please feel free to contact me to be that person. I look forward to hearing from you. My favorite quote that I live by is "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." – Mark Twain.

As odd as it may sound, it feels like Im talking to a family member or a best friend when speaking with Gina. Shes attentive, polite, and I always leave the session feeling lighter than before and full of love. I got so lucky being assigned to her.
