I believe that each client deserves to be met where they are at in their lives, thus each client warrants individualized and compassionate treatment. With my empathic support, I aim to provide clients with a safe space to discuss and process personal issues. When warranted, I draw largely from my Christian faith and help clients recognize and strengthen their faith in God's will. I have been working as a licensed mental health counselor in private practice on Long Island, NY for 2 years. I also was a staff therapist in an intensive outpatient program for the treatment of eating disorders providing individual and group counseling. I have extensive experience working with the eating disorder population, as well as those suffering with depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues and life transitions. I have had great success counseling clients from a Christian perspective and believe in the power of prayer. I am proud to say that all of my schooling, through college, has been in Christian (Catholic) institutions.
I received a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Fordham University and a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University. I am also certified in the Fundamentals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the treatment of depression and anxiety from Adelphi University School of Social Work.
My goal is to establish a strong therapeutic relationship with each client as the foundation for change in my therapeutic practice. I counsel clients with an eclectic approach out of respect to each client's individuality, drawing largely from cognitive-behavioral, behavioral, rational-emotive behavioral, person-centered, and solution-focused therapies.
I look forward to connecting with you and discovering how we can facilitate positive change in your life in a safe, supportive manner.

Gina has been an awesome counselor. She listens, and gives solutions or help me find my own solution. I believe she should be everyone's therapist.
