About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington (active) as well as a former marriage and family therapist in California (inactive). I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals, families, youth and adolescents. I am a trained relationship counselor with a background in personal training, nutrition and motivational coaching for life goals and obstacles. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, body image concerns and phase of life challenges. I also have a strong history of working with those who may have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive with a measure of humor and hope. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe that anyone is "broken." My approach combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, strategic and person-centered treatment modalities. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

During these times, more than ever, the future may feel uncertain and at times unsettling. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change or your life goals. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk alongside you in curiosity and empathy to build upon your existing strengths, support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by E.M. on Oct 26, 2021 after therapy with Ginger for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Ginger is extraordinary. Her ability to pinpoint issues and walk through them is unparalleled to any therapist I’ve had so far. 30 minutes pack in hours worth of learnings and I leave every meeting thought provoked. She’s extremely talented and I wish I could refer her to all my friends!

It’s only been one visit and a couple of messages but it’s the first time in all my therapy that I finally feel heard and seen. Ginger has been amazing. I can’t wait for additional progress!
