My 20+ years of experience + incredible compassion =
an opportunity for you to see life differently.
Therapy is life's safe zone.
As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns.
With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
Blending conventional and alternatives approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
For the past 20 years, I've helped people in the following areas:
- Depression and anxiety
- Relationship difficulties and conflict
- Health promotion and lifestyle changes
- Work and career issues, including transitions
- Employee/family caregiving challenges and wellbeing
- Grief and loss
- Boundary issues
I'm a breast cancer survivor, married with 2 children, one of which has been working through a drug addiction. I also work as a health care professional. Being a mother, wife, grandmother and health professional, I've found myself in the constant role of caregiver. To everyone but myself. Through my work with Dr. Gionta, I've learned how to take better care of myself. It has been invaluable. She is a great coach, empowers me to take action when very much needed, and encourages me to practice self-care daily!
"Dr. Gionta has taught me a lifetime's worth of wisdom in our time working together. She has shown me healthier approaches to living, and helped me balance a life that had fallen way off-center. She has encouraged me to challenge msyelf, to push past anxieties and old, unhealthy patterns to discover and honor myself in all areas of life. With Dr. Gionta's help, I am learning to really live, enjoy and own MY life."
"I discovered Dr. Gionta's self-care workshop at a time in my life when I was emotionally paralyzed from too many personal losses. She helped me put myself back on my own list of priorities and realize how my happiness and health impacts every other factor in my life. The workshops are full of amazing information and humor and were the best gift I could have given myself. Thank you, Dr. Gionta!"
