She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Gina Metcalf is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in San Diego, CA who works with highly motivated 20, 30, and 40-something women who are looking to address issues around anxiety, trauma, depression, self-esteem, codependency, stress, burnout, and identity. Her clients are generally people interested in self-improvement, holistic healing, and are open-minded, and seeking an active therapeutic experience that lends itself to deep work and big shifts.
Therapy sessions with Gina always start with a few minutes of mind-body connection and often combine talking with the use of Somatic Experiencing, parts work, and components of EMDR. She is always leading clients toward the root of their issues to facilitate long-term resolution, not just temporary relief, and will never leave you hanging if you bring an issue up in session. In addition to providing you with concrete tools to use both during and between sessions, Gina will act as your guide to push you enough for change to happen, but not so much that you become overwhelmed or shut down.
Gina takes a fresh and modern approach to therapy. She's relatable and real, collaborative, intuitive, sometimes cusses, will find ways to make the process fun, and works to make the environment feel non-stuffy and easy.
Gina's practice is currently fully remote and she is committed to delivering high-quality, thoughtful, and personalized care to each of her clients. Together, we will build a nurturing space for you to get to know and deeply love and accept all parts of yourself.
