20 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi I’m Gina! Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed from time to time? Balancing the demands of life, family, and work can be challenging. I have PhD and MSW from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am a highly trained therapist with experience helping people recover and achieve their personal and professional goals. My approach is filtered through a diverse lens that views all clients as having the ability to work through challenges. Sometimes all you need is a little help to move forward. Building upon your strengths and past coping mechanisms will help you develop better ways of managing stress and conflict. There are many interventions such as meditation, cognitive behavioral, family systems and solution focused therapy that can be used to tackle the issues affecting your emotional wellbeing. I know seeking therapy can feel scary, but you are making the right decision. Contact me today so we can discuss how therapy can help you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I will encourage the client to talk about the issues that brings them to therapy. I will focus on rapport building and creating a space where you would feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and experiences.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I work well with clients who are seeking to heal from trauma and those who have anxiety and depression. I can also incorporate spirituality into the therapeutic process.

My treatment methods


Throughout my career, my clients have taught me that strength and resiliency often develops from life challenges. Oftentimes, clients either forget or are unaware of their strength in times of difficulty. I spend time getting to know the problem issues of the client. Then I ask questions about ways they have overcome tough situations in the past. This information is used to create a holistic treatment plan that includes the clients own strengths to meet present challenges.
