Hi, I’m Ginny,
I am a licensed MFT with more than 30 years of experience providing Strengths-based counseling to individuals, couples, and families seeking immediate help and long-term solutions. I am also a certified professional coach, with 12 years of experience employing coaching strategies to create healing and change in individuals, their lives, and relationships.
I have experience in a variety of clinical settings for both mental health care and substance use issues, in both the public and private sector, and in private practice. I specialized in working with individuals and families with Substance use or co-occurring mental health and addiction issues.
I take a collaborative and individualized approach to individual, couples or family work, utilizing strategies that are a good fit and make sense to you,, and can make a powerful impact on your life.
This includes Motivational interviewing to create solid plans and agreements, CBT, and DBT, and I am very big on Mindfulness, since who we are ‘being' is where our power to create change really is.
I create a safe and empowering space to transform experiences and beliefs from those that are painful and hold you back, to those that are a new source of confidence and wisdom.
I am so happy to be able to be of service doing this valuable, collaborative work and I look forward to meeting you.
