I call myself a Transformational Healing Counselor because through the deep inner work of healing the past, transformation emerges in the present. My joy is in counseling people through this holistic process.
I've been in private practice in Hawaii since 2012 and prior to that, in Portland OR for four years.
I’m a Certified Trauma Model Therapist through the Ross Institute for Psychological Trauma and a Certified Hypnotist trained at Success Technology and Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. I'm a Certified Practitioner of NLP through The International Institute for Humanistic Neuro-Linguistic Psychology. I received my B.A. from the University of Oregon, and am also a level 2 Certified Reiki Practitioner. For the past three years I have been training with the Center for Self Leadership in Internal Family Systems Therapy.
I also offer video/phone sessions with people on Oahu and everywhere outside of the Hawaiian Islands.

I wanted to find out the location of my partner who I didn’t totally trust so I got a app. It really didn’t get me the satisfaction I wanted but I am glad I went ahead to get it. I returned home from a job interview and had a bonding date with my step-daughter. She hugged me, and I told her how much I loved her. She turned and said that matt loved her as well. When I asked who "Matt" was, she told me that while I was gone, he had come to my home, slept over with her mum. Fortunately, Matt left a note containing his number saying, “You can call me if you need anything”. I got the number and talked to my best friend about it, he recommended the services of a phone expert, Jim. I wrote to him at targetspytech @ gmail and got his phone number. We converse and I explained the heartbreaking situation to him, we agreed on a fee. He gained complete access to his information using the phone number I got. I saw all his texts with my partner,call log, recent locations and pictures and videos of both of them. My heart was broken into shreds. I never imagined surviving that but here I am writing about this. I filed for divorce later though. I am also recommending Jimmy if you ever find yourself in such dilemma. More...
My sessions with Gina have been, without a doubt, the most transformative therapeutic work I have ever done. She is trained in many approaches to pyschotherapy, including a method called Internal Family Systems, which I have found to be the only effective approach to treating both my acute and chronic symptoms of PTSD. Working with Gina has helped me identify, understand, and heal the parts of myself that have been wrecking havoc on my life for decades, and to shift my mental, emotional, and physical well-being in ways I never imagined possible. Through my work with Gina, I have discovered what feels like an entire universe of tools and resources that I now have available to me at all times, and which have empowered me to process and integrate all of the inner wounds and conflicts that have held me back. I recommend Gina to anyone looking for positive change in their lives, whether it be relief from severe and even life-threatening psychological struggles, or a simple wish to break free of those little stuck spots that stand between our current lives and the lives that we most truly desire.

Gina is truly a rare gem. Her process is really unique and special, and unlike any other form of counseling I have done, and she is extremely skilled in her techniques. Working with Gina has allowed me to make so many deep, long-term positive changes in my life, and move past so many struggles I held onto for so long. She is caring, supportive, non-judgemental. I have recommended my friends to her, and she has helped them transform their lives for the better as well. It has been a joy to watch them heal. I can't recommend her highly enough. More...
Gina has been very instrumental in my mental health growth. I came to her very broken and needing help to cope with anxiety and sobriety. I would not be where I am 3.5 years later and I still look forward to our sessions as every session I learn more about myself and definitely put the pieces back together stronger. Gina is relatable, knowledgeable, and empathetic. There is nothing I could ask more for in a therapist. I have recommended her to many people I know and she has been very helpful to them. I am blessed to have Gina in my corner and helping me with my transformation. More...
