Gina graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Masters in Social Work program in 1980. Gina started off working as a therapist in a pioneering program started by Patrick Carnes, treating incest families using a 12 Step recovery model. From there she worked with adults, couples, children and adolescents as a family counselor in a psychiatric clinic and as a school social worker in Minneapolis Schools. For many years her private practice was housed in an OB-GYN clinic where she helped those struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss and adoption choices. In the past 15-20 years she has focused on helping people make smart choices in relationships and has designed a program called I Date Smarter ( to help people make healthier and more informed choices. In the past 5 years she has completed training with Pia Mellody, clinical director at the Meadows in Arizona and author of Facing Codependence, in working to assist people to resolve childhood traumas towards healthy recovery.

Gina’s style is to work with clients in an engaged and supportive relationship to discover what is getting them stuck in life and make permanent and profound changes to enjoy a happier and more peaceful life. She believes that we all are basically competent human beings who can struggle from time to time and get stuck in our lives. Relationships make the world go round and if we are stuck in that area of our lives it affects everything we try to do in life. With some help we can all lead happy and productive lives full of respect for self and others.
