About Dr. Gina
Owner/Clinical Therapist

I started Solid Roots, LLC because mental health is something I am truly passionate about.   I think things happen in our life and we do the best to navigate them on our own, but sometimes we need a little more support.  Frankly, as a mental health clinician, I am extremely disappointed to see how many barriers there are to getting that mental health support.  So, I created Solid Roots, LLC, a place where you can get the support you deserve at an affordable rate.

 

I've dedicated the past ten years of my life to studying mental health-specifically in the scope of trauma. I have earned a Doctorate of Social work from the University of Southern California with a focus in trauma informed programming, a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from Wayne State University with a focus in family systems and a Bachelors of Social work from Saginaw Valley State University.  I am originally from the Metro Detroit area and recently moved to the city I've dreamed of being in for years-Nashville.  I am proud to say that I am a fully licensed clinician in both Michigan and Tennessee.

While I have always worked with individuals and groups in a psychotherapy setting, I also have experience in working in environments such as: Children's Advocacy Centers, Schools, Inpatient Psychiatric Units, and outpatient primary care offices.

Heading 1

"Working with Dr. Gina and Solid Roots totally changed my life. I entered therapy lost, deeply unsure of myself, and seeking constant validation from external sources. Therapy gave me the tools, resources and proof of how strong I actually am. I deeply recommend therapy to anyone who feels they are struggling especially if you are unsure of why you struggle. Trauma is so much more than a military experience and without the tools to handle your past you can never flourish."
