Gin is a Clinical Mental Health Counseling intern from Westminster College and is excited to be with Hope and Healing.
Gin has an extensive background in teaching, managing and developing youth and young adults throughout her time as a teacher and owner of an outdoor recreation business in Juneau, Alaska. She also has experience with acute care for adolescents in a behavioral health inpatient setting. She loves working with children, teens and their families, and brings flexibility, positivity, patience and an open-mind to counseling. When working with kids she feels it is important to have a sense of humor and a willingness to “go with the flow.” Her approach to therapy is to create a comfortable, honest and understanding environment and relationship that fosters a journey of awareness, acceptance, compassion and growth. Gin incorporates trauma-informed, attachment-based and psychodynamic concepts in therapy sessions.
Gin has a bachelors and masters in music and plans to graduate from Westminster in the spring of 2023. When Gin isn’t in class or with clients, you can find her weight lifting in the gym, listening to hip hop, hiking on the trails or enjoying a good cup of coffee!
