I am an attachment-based therapist that believes true healing happens in relationship. Through understanding (and sometimes a little translating!), I can help you find the healthiest version of the relationship. The relationship is my client, and I'm committed to distilling the truth and looking at it with wonder and honesty. By defining it and giving you tools, I can help teach you how to take care of each other and your needs in the relationship.
I've been a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) for over 10 years, working with adults, teens and families of all ages in transition. I have a M.S. in Counselor Education from the University of Wyoming and a B.A. in Mass Communications/Theater Arts from Loyola University New Orleans.
I specialize in:
-Attachment with families and couples
-Teaching and supporting parents (or single parents!)
-Attention-deficit disorder (and supporting family with ADHD)
-Creating meaning at times of transition
I use mindfulness, attachment theory, neuroscience and trauma research and integrative therapy to help find connection and harmony, inside and out. I use a mind/spirit/body/skills-based approach to find what works for each individual to 1) understand what is happening; 2) decide how it serves you and how it hinders you; and 3) make decisions about what to keep and what to change. To understand what you need and then figure out how to ask for it. Counseling is dynamic and my approach is flexible. Like life.
I'm here to help you find courage and support with compassion, curiosity and clarity. You are not alone and I am not afraid to go in with you.
- Parenting issues
- Self esteem
- Career difficulties
I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Depression

Gina is very kind and helpful. She listens but also diffuses the situation with welcomed reality checks. During our couples counseling, she has been extremely empathetic towards both of us. I would recommend her for relationship troubles you might be having and need help working through.
