If you feel anxious, sad, or irritable, I will help you find skills to regulate your nervous system. If you’ve experienced trauma, I will help you process or re-process your trauma. A few things about me: I am a first generation Mexican American. I am a lover of nature. I am a mother and dog mom. I am a law enforcement and combat veteran spouse. I too have experienced obstacles, grief, and stresses in my life. I too understand that change, making time for a therapy session, incorporating daily coping skills and self care can be challenging, however, necessary. Congratulations on taking the first step. You have the ability to heal. **I will be on vacation from from July 31st until August 6th. I will not be available for sessions or calls during that time.**

Hi there, I’m Genevieve. Do you feel like your emotions are out of your control? Do you feel stuck, confused, overwhelmed? I assist people with understanding their emotions so they can be engaged and present in each moment of their lives. I love mixing a combination of mindfulness techniques, empathic counseling and trauma interventions to help people feel more in control. In addition, I specialize in navigating medical trauma for patients, providers, and first responders. My experience as a medical social worker for close to a decade gives me the unique skills to help you cope with and adjust to challenging diagnoses and medical treatment. Similarly, my firsthand experience as a provider in the hospital allows me to support other medical professionals (e.g. physicians, nurses, medical assistances) with the specific challenges that come with providing medicine in our current health care climate. I'm passionate about healing through self-exploration. I hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a safe place you deserve to discovery your true self.

Hello, I was born and raised in Stockton, California. I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 17 and in 1997, after 25 yeas of service, I retired from the Marine Corps as a Master Sergeant. After retiring from the Marine Corps, I worked as a Farrier (Horseshoer), as well as a structural welder (Ironworker), as those were the most marketable skill that I had. I came to a point where old injuries came back to haunt me and I could no longer walk (several years later, thanks to a surgery through the VA, I can walk again; thankful for that). At this point, I changed professions and out of a desire to work with veterans, I returned to school, accomplishing all that was necessary to become a licensed counselor. I spent another career working for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, specifically as a counselor in the Readjustment Counseling Service (Vet Center). I recently retired from the Vet Center and now I work part-time here with Grow Therapy. As a retired Marine senior staff Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) and disabled combat veteran myself, the Vet Center was the perfect job. Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling to combat veterans and provide counseling to survivors of military sexual trauma (MST). Vet Centers also provide group counseling, bereavement counseling and couples counseling when this is determined to be of support to the veteran. Readjustment counseling many times consists of treating/addressing symptoms related to post-traumatic stress (PTSD), I.e., anxiety, depression, exaggerated startle response, hypervigilance, sleep disturbance, etc. Many veterans go on to work as first responders and working with many first responders as well as medical personal, has provided me with a great deal of additional experience.
