Gina Palumbo Professional Growth Services Lcoated in Tacoma, WA

My Services

Professional coaching services that are an evolution of psychotherapy, mental health and marriage counseling. 

Investing In Yourself

My services are distinguished from an hourly model in several key ways:


Together we will define where we’re starting and ending.

• Connectivity

We have contact as needed in between sessions to support your desired outcomes.

• Collaboration

We're partnering to create a higher degree of acceleration and desired change.

One size doesn't fit all, and I offer a variety of agreement options.  All work is customizable, and together, we’ll decide on a service agreement that’s right for you.  Because my services are retainer-based and include support in between sessions, they’re non-medical and billing insurance isn’t possible.

I'm passionate about helping people access their power in small and large ways throughout their lives — through thoughts, intentions, and choices.

I listen carefully to the conversations you have with yourself and with significant people in your life. I pay attention to where your thoughts and energy are moving, and I translate what I'm hearing into a road map of opportunities and choices which lead to feeling better and having more of what you're wanting.

"My life and my perspective about who I am has transformed from the time we began working together when I started in your psychotherapy practice (a million years ago).  I didn't think your services or approach needed improvement, yet as usual, you were're even more helpful as a coach!   Having contact and access to your support in between sessions really does keep me focused and more connected to my objectives. 

I love having the recordings of your messages that I can replay as needed.  Thank you!"

"After each session, bright luminous light bulbs!  Every interaction we had together was exactly what I needed. You met me where I was at and elevated me with insight provided or questions asked.  You listen deeply, and ask thought provoking questions. Your choice in words are purposeful and impactful and powerful."

— Personal & Professional Growth

"What hasn’t changed?  I am more confident in myself, my work and my relationships. I no longer avoid my problems and step into my true self more. I used to believe I wasn’t capable of being in a loving relationship, that something was wrong with me.  I’m so much happier since working with you.  Anyone who wants to work with you should know that they will be challenged and encouraged to grow which can be extremely uncomfortable.  But it’s fucking worth it."

Do you know that emotional intimacy and communication are the same thing? 

Many people believe there is separation between the two.  Yet from my years of working with couples, I'm certain they are the same.  I bring this unique perspective to my work supporting relationships through their many phases of development, growth, and transitions.

I'll assist you with the heavy lifting during and in between sessions, no matter what issues we're focusing on.  Following our conversations, you'll find your connection becoming lighter, warmer, and more connected.

Intimacy arises in a light, spacious, and open (non-defensive) environment.  Learning how to have a light touch with each other amid the harder parts of your connection will lead you to feeling and communicating better-- which is the goal and outcome.

  • Recognized – Damaging communication habits and changed them.

  • Creativity – Healthier, pro-intimacy mindset and habits.

  • Closure – Ending relationship consciously with respect for everyone impacted by the  change, including children, extended family, friends, and larger community.

"When we first started working with you, we were struggling with pain, regret, and to forgive each other. We have moved significantly forward in a very short period of time. We have healed much of the past and have grown and changed in ways we never thought possible. There is so much happiness now.  We now have so much more trust in each other, which has increased our intimacy. We have learned new, more positive ways to communicate with each other."

— Couples Connection

"Thank you for making the hard conversations so much easier to have.  When we first came to see you, we thought something was really wrong with us, and that maybe we'd damaged our relationship beyond repair.  The main thing we've learned is that growing in our emotional intimacy can be really uncomfortable.  Also that tension and conflict are an opportunity for increased closeness and connection now that we know how to lean in rather than escalate.  Turns out we're not broken, we just didn't know how to move through tough patterns on our own.  Now we can easily identify when we're in the new together or if we've reverted to our old ways.  Invaluable."

— Couples Connection

"Our work together started with marriage counseling.  After completing our couples work, which included collaborative divorce, I knew you were the right person to help me adjust to being single and navigating reentry into dating.  You met me at every awkward, uncomfortable step of the way with warmth, humor, and incredibly helpful advice and guidance.  Thank you for helping me rebuild my life into something even better than I'd imagined."
