Professional statement

Gina's entire practice is unique from top to bottom. From her personality, training, and approach as a modern 30-something therapist all the way to the customized approach she takes and the constant innovations she brings to her work, she's not in competition with anyone other than herself to be the best therapist she can possibly be for young women.

She has an individualized set of solutions to get to the root of the issue and actually move that shit. She works with women who are ready and willing to make changes, be bold, and level the ef up.

She helps women in their 20s and 30s (and beyond!) who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and codependency. Many of her clients come to her feeling resentful, drained, indecisive, and unsure what their feelings are and where to start from going years without getting their needs and wants met.

She'll help you prioritize your wants/needs, use your voice, and set boundaries to stop people pleasing, playing the victim, caretaking, fixing, feeling the need to be perfect all the time, managing others' emotions and behaviors, and compromising your level of comfort so that others can be comfortable.

Gina has found that codependency is at the root of many clients' anxiety and depression and is passionate about broadening her client's understanding of codependency to provide clarity about how it plays a role in their lives and she provides actionable steps for clients that result in relief and big change.
