Hi there, I'm Gemma!

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us.” -D. Richo Therapy requires hard work. At times, you will be uncomfortable, exhausted, and even overwhelmed. The journey is not always easy, however, achieving sophisticated awareness requires you to be brave and fearless. I will challenge you to expose yourself. Meet you where you are at and encourage you to grow. Together, we will identify your strengths, challenges, and patterns so that you can develop an awareness of your own “blind spots.” My goal is to empower you to utilize different tools and strategies that will teach you to be your own therapist. I offer a warm, authentic approach to my therapy sessions. I am most invested in learning about you and assisting you to achieve your desired outcomes in a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive setting. I am passionate about helping others by utilizing a collaborative approach that incorporates various evidence-based interventions to meet individualized needs. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a military veteran with extensive experience working with various individuals and families on improving their mental health, relationships, trauma, substance use, and career challenges. I specialize in cognitive behavioral treatments for depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and co-occurring disorders.
