About Me

Virginia Gil- Ifill supports you in your mental wellness journey and works with you to gather the tools you need to accomplish your goals. Virginia is a licensed mental health counselor in New York who specializes in treating children, teens, and adults experiencing some of life's difficult challenges, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, domestic violence, relationship issues, trauma, and PTSD.

My therapeutic process is quite simple and aimed at creating a nurturing and trusting open space for my clients. I believe therapy is a place to grow and achieve mental wellness goals while using a range of modalities to meet each client's uniqueness. My approach is both psychodynamic and holistic and includes empathy, understanding, compassion, and support. My goal as a counselor is to provide a wide range of treatment modalities to create interest in learning, autonomy, and self-direction. Some modalities used in treatment include mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused.

Therapy is a process and empowering to the mindset. In therapy. I guide people through personal challenges, support their emotional challenges, and empower them to achieve a healthier mind and a healthier life. Through the therapeutic process, my goals are to see clients gain a healthier perception in life, strengthen their mindset, and build inner peace, love, and trust within themselves. With the tools gained in therapy, clients can pursue new ways to live in both their professional and personal lives. The ending result is that therapy works. “Success as a psychotherapist is not found by doing something for the client but rather being someone for the client.”- unknown.

Written by A.L. on Jul 29, 2021 after therapy with Virginia for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

She is so much better than many of the counselors my husband has experienced. I'm grateful.

I have only seen her one time so far but, I already feel comfortable and know she is listening to get to know me and learn the best ways to help me feel better. I look forward to the next session.
