Announcement icon Our group practice transitioned quickly to all virtual sessions using the HIPPA compliant version of Zoom. I'm grateful for this access.
Gina Sangster is not currently accepting new clients.
Are you seeking help in making choices and decisions in your life that seem unattainable? Feel stuck and immobilized by conflict, lack of motivation and self doubt? I can help. Together we can sort out goals you'd like to achieve and identify steps you can take to get where you want to go. Starting with a here-and-now focus we can make sense of how the past influences the present. You can understand yourself and your relationships better and make changes in your life today. Let's begin with what feels most important to you! PLEASE NOTE: My calendar is full until May 2021 except for inquiries for Recent Loss Group.
Specialties: relationships, loss, recovery and attachment patterns -- both past and present. Impact of family dynamics on how we think, feel and behave. A solution-focused perspective keeps our eye on changes in the present while exploring the past. Mindfulness and here and now focus on the therapeutic relationship.
I am comfortable with and interested in working with people from diverse backgrounds and like to explore cultural identity as part of the therapeutic process. I have a particular interest in the arts, both visual and literary, and in helping people pursue their lifelong dreams, whatever they may be.

Gina Sangster's Groups

Early Loss Adult Psychotherapy Group

Psychotherapy group focused on adults who have experienced early loss -- primarily of a parent -- but could be a sibling -- either in childhood, adolescence or 20's. Please note: this group is not intended for those whose loss is RECENT. The group is comprised of individuals who are in their 20's - 30's whose losses occurred anywhere from 5 to 25 years ago. As of November 2019, this group is closed but may reopen in 2020 for an additional member or two.

More about this group

Recent Loss Young Adult Psychotherapy Group

Distinct from the Early Loss Psychotherapy Group, this group will accept adults in their 20's and 30's who have experienced RECENT loss of a loved one -- parent, sibling or partner. This group will not provide crisis intervention for sudden traumatic death but will be geared toward those whose losses have occurred within the last 1 to 4 years (exceptions can be considered). This group is expected to begin in January 2020.
