A NOTE FROM GINELLE
I am so pleased to be of service to you, no matter what this moment in your life looks like. It’s important that you know I am committed to your growth happening on your terms, not according to my agenda. I want you to know that therapy can be an amazing process. While it could be scary to uncover things about the past or ourselves, it can also be enlightening and empowering. My belief is that you are not the problem—the problem is the problem! If you have a diagnosis, I know you are more than that label.
What we will do first and foremost is build a safe and trusting relationship. While doing that, I’ll be gathering information about your life history, and how you may be struggling in the present. I will also be listening for clues about how you made it this far, what your strengths are, how you engage in self-talk, and what you do to protect yourself. I’ll offer you thought-provoking questions along the way, some grounding skills, regulation skills, and information… and we can theorize about how things got to be this way. It is my utmost intention for you to feel seen and heard.
You can expect that I will check in on your symptoms, I will solicit your feedback on our process, and I will respect your boundaries. I love to practice therapy because I get a front-row seat to your growth and transformation. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re feeling ready to take this step toward wellness.
I look forward to hearing from you,
