Gina has experience working with clients of various ages and concerns. She has worked extensively with clients who are learning to cope with trauma including the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one, childhood abuse, domestic abuse, and sexual abuse and assault. She has also assisted clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD, LGBTQIA+ related issues, and who are having difficulty adjusting to changes within their everyday lives. She sees clients age 13 and older and works with both individuals and couples.
Gina takes a holistic and person-centered approach when working with clients. This includes not only discussing clients' current mental health but also any factors that could impact their mental health such as daily routines, eating habits, sleeping habits, interpersonal relationships, etc.. She helps clients gain awareness and insight into how these different factors impact their mental health and assists them in learning practical coping skills and solutions they can apply to their day-to-day lives to better manage these issues. Gina works collaboratively with clients to help them establish these healthier habits and routines outside of sessions and ultimately attain a more balanced life. She believes that no two people are the same and ensures she adjusts her approach to best suit the needs of each individual she works with.
Gina is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the State of Florida. She graduated with honors from Rollins College in 2015 with a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. Gina attended the University of Central Florida for her undergraduate work and graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
