I'm Gina, a local relationship expert and service-oriented facilitator for individuals and couples.
About my services, and why don't I accept insurance.
My services are an evolution of psychotherapy and mental health counseling into professional coaching.
I was a licensed counselor providing psychotherapy for over a decade. I loved my work and am so grateful for the ability it gave me to help people in all facets of their lives and relationships. That profession is also medical in nature, requiring diagnosis, labeling people, and in many cases having to conform services to insurance companies rather than actual client needs.
Over the years as my interest and continuing education moved in the direction of human potential and intentional intimacy, the clients coming in to see me were a match to my passion for personal growth. The positive, accelerated impact of my personal growth work with clients was clear, and after several years of trying to decide how to ingrate my new direction, I ultimately decided that mental health counseling was no longer the right designation for my services.
Now, as a professional coach, I'm able to work directly with my clients in more connected and creative ways. The shift has been very fulfilling for both my clients and myself. We have more direct contact, flexibility in communication, and more overall bandwidth for our work together. Our conversations are high-energy, often humorous, and deeply transformational.
