The first step to successful psychotherapy is learning to recognize that you have emotions, both pleasant and unpleasant, and name them. Gianna will listen carefully to what you say, focus on meaningful points of your speech, and then help you articulate the emotions.
The second step is to learn that your life, up to now, has been largely controlled by the unconscious repetition of old emotional conflicts. Gianna’s job is to teach you what you didn’t learn in childhood about emotional honesty in relationships by speaking the truth in all things, so that you can learn how to relate to others in a healthy way. Gianna is not a paid friend or nanny.
The final step includes learning to recognize your emotions right in the present, at the very moment that they occur, and then making a conscious decision to surrender to God’s will, recognizing that you are completely and totally dependent upon Him and that anger doesn’t get you anywhere, anyway. Choose to do something new, something more healthy and beneficial to your well-being and the greater good.
Gianna works collaboratively with her clients when deciding which methods to use for short-term and longer-term treatments. Gianna also discovered that forgiveness is central to healing trauma and specializes in forgiveness therapy.
Gianna uses a biopsychosocial model with her clients who struggle with alcohol and substance abuse, which also includes the integration of the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church and its healing properties.
Gianna uses prayer, fasting, and a sincere study of the Catholic faith with clients who are not simply seeking the relief of psychiatric symptoms. Her healing approach is focused on psychological and spiritual growth.
All of the services that I provided are based on research, ages of wisdom, and real-world experience, which I individualize based on your unique and specific needs.
I use tele-therapy to reach more people who want a private, secure, and convenient way to get help.
