Online and In Person Therapy for Emotional Health

Reach out- You are worth it

    “There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”


             ― Zora Neale Hurston

Often, we feel we are surviving rather than thriving. And perhaps you are worried about the way you feel- powerless, lonely, sad or overwhelmed. Life can be hard. I can help. 

Maybe you are a new parent and it isn't what you expected, or even hoped for. Nobody tells you about the postpartum experience. The internal voice in your head that is constantly critiquing the new role of motherhood you're taking on, mourning the version of yourself you once were, and not to mention the pain that comes with a birth plan gone wrong.

Perhaps you feel stuck in grief or loss. Or your anxiety is running the show.

 

Are you in the entertainment profession and struggling to navigate the ego bruises and the instability?

Therapy gives you the pen to write your own story. I can help you illuminate your power in a world that may tell you that you are powerless. I can help you see what already lies within you.

About

Ginette Rhodes

I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, and have training in Maternal Mental Health and NICU Considerations. I am currently receiving training in postpartum mood disorders. In addition, I have experience working with adolescents (and their families) in a high school setting. 

 

As a Single Mother By Choice, of a child born premature, I have an insiders understanding of navigating the NICU and advocating for a child. I can provide knowledgeable support during your fertility journey. I am passionate about supporting parents, specifically ones navigating the health care system or the experience of parenting special needs children. 

I believe in the intersection of psychotherapy and social change, and see the impact of intergenerational trauma, especially on BIPOC psyches and bodies. I am committed to healing justice and achieving wellness through systemic change.

 

I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and spent many years working professionally in the entertainment industry, so I myself have navigated all those ups and downs. 

I am working under the supervision of Erin Hickman, LMFT, PMH-C, CA License #111012

 
 

 

My approach toward therapy is relational and integrated-inspired by Psychodynamic, IFS, CBT, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused,  Humanistic, and Attachment Perspectives. I use a direct approach, with humor and empathy. 


Together we can address traumas, behaviors, and relationships that have triggered negative self-beliefs and interfered with the ability to meet  potential.

We can create deeper awareness around the factors that result in unwanted patterns and feelings, so you are able to take the actions needed.  

We do this together.

I work with adults and adolescents to resolve a broad array of issues including trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, life transitions, family conflict and postpartum issues. I utilize LGBTQ Affirmative therapy and am committed to the work of healing racial trauma. 

I am trained in couples modalities such as Gottman, Emotionally Focused and Psychodynamic, among others. Most importantly, therapy should be a safe space where you can explore blocks, triggers and negative patterns. Relationships get hard when people get stuck in anger, resentment, or apathy. We will work together so you can then understand your needs and deeper emotions. 

Career counseling  is designed to help with choosing, changing, or leaving a career.  One's career is often one of the most important aspects of adulthood, and embarking on a new career, whether for the first time, the second time, or any time thereafter, can be a stress inducing event. As a counselor, I can assist by exploring your skills and strengths, determine interests and personality type and broaden your perspectives.
