I understand that sometimes life can be challenging and can hinder personal growth, happiness, relationships, quality of life, professional success, parenting among other things. You feel like you are spinning your wheels but not going anywhere. You feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, apathetic, sad and/or irritated. You may be surprised to know that there are ways to cope with these feelings so you can grab the reigns and get back on that horse! You want to create meaningful changes but aren’t sure where to start. I believe that the catalyst to that change exists within each of us, sometimes we need a little help to find it. I have experience working with older adults, adults, (teens 17+), veterans, active-duty military and their families, college students, EMS personnel, and caregivers in the treatment of mental health and life transition issues, marital issues, interpersonal issues, deployment, military separation, reunification, divorce, pregnancy, work and school issues, parenting and end of life issues (grief/placement). I can also provide case-management services, life coaching and ESA evaluations/letters.

I have provided counseling services for 24 years with a variety of clientele. I focus on utilizing person centered counseling and focusing on a person's experiences, as they see them and helping them work through these with self-reflection, relaxation techniques and positive self-talk. I approach this by viewing the issues someone is having through their perspective and offer my view and determine if that aligns with what the client is experiencing. I believe in exploring family dynamics and childhood experiences to determine if that impacts current functioning as an adult.

Reaching out for help in the form of therapy is not an easy thing to do as many can attest, but by reading this biography, you are taking the first step in getting help for yourself or a loved one. At times, life offers many struggles and obstacles that can be difficult to overcome alone. Engaging in therapy will provide opportunities to explore and process the thoughts and feelings that prevent you from living your best life. Though the thought of therapy may be intimidating and even nerve-wrecking for some, I believe once a person finds the right therapist, they find a trusting confidant who seeks to understand and problem solve.

HI, and nice to meet you! I am Gina, often called "Dr. G.". Do you sometimes feel as though you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? I empower individuals/families to learn to overcome the burdens that life can bring. I am a therapist, but generally considered a Human Advocate, or one who helps to complete life's puzzles. I enjoy helping others take apart the pieces of the puzzle that don't fit well, organizing them, then putting them back together completely. We all deserve a little help sometimes, and that’s what led you here. If you’re feeling like something has got to give but you don’t know what, reach out. We can work on a solution together. I look forward to meeting you and walking with you on this journey.

Hello. I'm Joseph. Do you feel so anxious it is hard to leave the house in the morning? Do you feel so depressed and sad that is hard to get out of bed in the morning? Anxiety and depression are common. You are not alone in feeling this way. I help people who struggle to deal with the stresses of life. Working together, we can identify what causes your depression and anxiety and work to find solutions which will make life easier for you. It is all about finding balance. My experience allows me to help you deal with your stress, relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, or depression. Some people worry about what others will think if they seek out therapy. You are not alone. Many people deal with the same kind of things you dealing with. Therapy is a place where many people come to heal and grow. It is safe place where you can talk about whatever is on your mind and know that everything is confidential. Through compassion, empathy, and evidence-based techniques, we will find solutions for your problems and worries. Look forward to working with you!
