Professional statement

Gina D’Aguanno is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who graduated from Regis College summa cum laude. Her background includes a long nursing career in both inpatient and outpatient roles across the lifespan. Gina has a strong interest in child/adolescent and young adult behavioral health. Young adults have different challenges from other age groups. These challenges require a unique approach and partnership.

As a mom, Gina understands the importance of a relationship based parenting model. She treats patients collaboratively from a holistic perspective looking at each patient as a unique individual using a strengths based approach to wellness. She enjoys working with clients who are motivated to make positive changes to meet their goals. She has a special interest in a non-diet approach to intuitive eating and exercise.

Gina is trained in medication management and non pharmacological approaches to treating mental health conditions. In addition, Gina has training in mindfulness practices, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, social skills training, and executive functioning training techniques. Sessions are offered via a confidential telehealth platform.


Message to clients

Young adulthood can be a challenging time that requires a unique approach. There can be many transitions that can be exciting and yet challenging at the same time. I use the best evidence based research practices and guidelines to prescribe and manage medication. I utilize a variety of brief therapy techniques and strategies to assist clients in reaching their goals. I enjoy working with clients who want to make positive changes through lifestyle and behavior management. I pride myself on having a non-judgmental and holistic approach to care.
