Professional statement

Ginger approaches challenges with realistic optimism and emphasizes boundaries, creative self-care, and people’s strengths.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Ginger tailors treatment to each client’s needs and uses several techniques to facilitate healing, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), psychodynamic psychotherapy, internal family systems therapy, and somatic psychotherapies. Her style is flexible and patient, although she can be direct if it’s helpful for clients to hear!

Ginger starts by getting to know her client. Then, she’ll address the issues that feel most urgent to them—whether that’s getting something off their chest, learning new coping skills, creating new habits, or processing past experiences. It’s okay if they’re not sure what they need yet. Ginger is here to help.

Message to clients

Whether it’s because of hardship, heartbreak, or a lack of support, many people struggle to feel at ease. My mission is to help clients feel comfortable and in control of their bodies, relationships, and environment so they can live out their dreams.

I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma accumulated from childhood, intimate partner violence, sex work and sex trafficking, incarceration, and the justice system. Through these experiences, I’ve learned to operate from a place of non-judgment, unconditional compassion, and even humor. I recognize that traditional treatment modalities don’t necessarily work for everyone and use unconventional methods that catalyze healing.

I’m not one to silently nod along and agree with everything you say. I’m an active participant in your therapeutic process. When you work with me, our dialogue will flow like a conversation. We can discuss whatever is on your mind, but I’ll be curious about how your body experiences the world, the emotions you want to feel more and less of, and the sound of your self-talk and inner thoughts. If you’re open to it, I’ll occasionally assign homework for you to practice what we discuss during our sessions.
