About Gina Minutella

Gina is a Licensed Master Social Worker with an advanced clinical degree from Columbia University. Having worked with children and families in various settings throughout the years – including homeless shelters, schools and therapeutic milieus, she has come to find her niche – helping children and families in a compassionate, empathetic way, to overcome mental-health obstacles and to lead happier, more fulfilling lives.

She is a strong believer that children are an extension of their family system and so the work must be done with children and parents alike. She operates from a strengths-based perspective and thinks that every child and parent has strengths within them that can be utilized to overcome challenges. She believes children are resilient and while they each have their own unique individual strengths, it is often also necessary to equip them and their families with tools to help them be successful through the therapeutic process.

You will find that she takes an active role in therapy and you can bet she will be engaging, optimistic and humorous. She will meet every client where they are and use evidenced-based approaches to help clients meet their goals. 

When not working you can find her spending time with family and friends, reading non-fiction, and dancing.
