Counseling and Psychological Services
- PhD, LP - Counseling Psychology from the University of North Dakota
GiGi (she/her) received her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of North Dakota. She enjoys supporting students through the many transitions inherent to college. She is involved as a liaison to LGBTQ+ students through outreach and consultation for CAPS.
Therapeutically, GiGi predominately pulls from a relational, integrative, insight-oriented approach. This means that she believes that relationships are a central part of wellness and is informed by interpersonal process and cognitive-based strategies. GiGi aims to provide an authentic and warm environment rooted in respect. She takes a collaborative approach focusing on identity, emotional exploration, and skill development. GiGi values the integration of social justice, feminist, and multicultural frameworks in clinical work. GiGi's clinical interests include trauma, relationship concerns, sexual identity development, and gender identity development. She also has a strong passion for clinical training and supervision.
Personally, GiGi enjoys spending time with her partner and dog Ru (who you will see pictures of around her office). GiGi is originally from the NYC boroughs, which she will usually let you know within ten minutes of meeting her. In her free time, GiGi enjoys hiking, trying new restaurants, cooking, and playing different board games.
