  • Counseling for Those Needing a More Client Lead Approach

    Your Past Doesn't Have To Define You

    We’ve all had good and bad experiences in life, that’s how we become who we are. Some of those experiences impact us more than others but that doesn’t mean that’s the final result. We evolve and change, in our own choice, no one else.

    These experiences may have you feeling stuck and hopeless, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In therapy we’ll discuss how to keep moving forward. This can be hard work, but if you’re ready to feel more in control of your life, it will be so validating and rewarding!

    I will be with you every step of the way.

    Hi, I'm Gina

    I am a Trauma-Focused Therapist, client lead, and I’m here to help you understand and process the disturbing after-effects of living through significant trauma,Narcissistic abuse which includes neglect, sexual, physical, or verbal abuse. Your trauma might be witnessing a horrible incident or death. We will process the ‘stuckness’ of these or other situations.

    I am also client-focused so I meet you where you are. However, I am active in the process which just means I may challenge a thought you have by suggesting a word or phrase which at times helps you to define what you’re trying to say.

    Clients are comfortable and feel safe saying what they need without judgment which can be validating, and therefore, healing.

    This is your time, I want you to get the most of our time together.

    About Gina Rivera-Sokolich

    I believe that your past doesn’t define you. Life experiences shape who we are but you have more control than you may think to make things better.  I’ll help you find your voice so that you can find a more clear path to your future.

    I’ve been in the medical field for quite some time, beginning as a First Responder and now as a Mental Health Therapist. I’ve seen many disheartening things in my lifetime, as many of us have.

    I am very passionate about what I do and I work hard to help you see there is a better way. You get to make the choices for your life direction, no one else. My job is to meet you where you are on your journey and help you to see the different options that you have. While these options may not be clear to you right away, together we will unravel the ‘ball of yarn’ of your life experiences and help you feel empowered to make the changes for a better future.
