Gina Mitchell

MSW, LSW

Psychotherapist

Gina seeks to create a therapeutic space that is collaborative, non-judgmental, and compassionate. Her approach is client-centered and relational; she works with you to better understand how trauma and attachment shape your history and present so that you can move deeper into your own insight and agency.

 

Gina also sees mental health as inextricably linked to social context and location and is attentive to how privilege and oppression show up within and outside the therapeutic relationship. Her specialties include working with queer and trans clients, with people navigating grief and loss, and with individuals facing chronic illness and disability. She is available for work with individuals and couples.
