Hello all you Arrows!! I am Gina (Mia) - a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Virginia with over 7 years of experience in the field. Specializing in working with younger populations and in the area of trauma, I am dedicated to helping clients overcome a range of mental health issues, including depression, stress, and anxiety, coping with addictions, LGBT-related issues, trauma and abuse. I also provide couples counseling and am familiar in Gottmans theories and methods.
I believe that each client is the expert of their own story, and i am committed to empowering YOU to tap into your own strengths and overcome the challenges you face. I understand that seeking therapy takes courage and is a brave journey. I am dedicated to supporting and guiding YOU on yours journey towards a more fulfilling and happier life. Think of me link the bow, and you the arrow. All I am doing is pointing you in the direction that is right for you.
I have a compassionate persona centered approach, combined with extensive experience and knowledge in the field. I will make an excellent choice for anyone looking for a therapist who truly cares about their well-being. Whether you are looking for support in overcoming a specific issue or simply seeking a more fulfilling life, I am here to help YOU.
In addition to her work experience, I have a deep understanding of the latest research and treatment modalities in the field. I use an integrative approach, drawing from various evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based practices, to create a personalized treatment plan for you. I also have training in TF-CBT, play therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Nurturing Parenting and ASAM (Addiction). My latest area of interests includes how to create a healthy video gaming mentality and the effects of social media on human empathy.
I also place a great emphasis on the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients. I desire to create and foster a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel comfortable opening up and exploring your thoughts and feelings. Additionally, I am an ally and advocate and member of the LGBTQ+ community, and POC, and any oppressed community. My focus is geared toward providing a welcoming and accepting environment for all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity or culture.
Outside of my professional work, I am an avid supporter of the local community here in VA and believe in giving back. I regularly volunteer my time and expertise to organizations that help individuals dealing with mental health concerns, particularly those that support the LGBTQ+ community.
If you are looking for a therapist who will listen, understand, and guide you on your journey towards healing and growth, look no further! With my vast experience, compassionate approach, and support for the community, I am ready to help you achieve your goals and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
