Gio is absolutely the best. This is my first time trying therapy and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Gio is kind, thoughtful, patient, and prioritizes my comfort and safety during our conversations. She is really easy to talk to and she makes me feel really safe. I am so grateful to have the privilege of working with her!

Giovanna was great with helping me through a very difficult time. I've always felt listened to and understood. I will definitely continue working with her in the future.

You can tell that Giovanna is listening to you objectively and making sure you feel supported at the same time. Super professional and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality therapist.

Gio is the second therapist I've tried on teen counseling, the first one I didn't feel a connection with and didn't ask me any questions just told me things that weren't allowed and then never showed up to our appointment... The reason I say that is for perspective on how amazing Giovanna is. She has taken the time to ask me questions and read them and respond appropriately with compassion and empathy, before our first session even happened. She is so kind and patient and you can tell she really wants to help people. I feel so comfortable to talk about my life and the things that are troubling me, with her. She is one of a kind, a real peach. I can't say enough good things about her. I'm so grateful that this app exists and that she is able to help me.

She's prompt, professional, and my daughter enjoys her sessions with Giovanna.

Giovanna is an incredibly professional, personable and knowledgeable counselor. She provides research-based counseling that is targeted at the issues that her clients face. I look forward to my weekly sessions with her. I am so thankful for her insight and help. I could not recommend her more.

Giovanna was great - she was able to interact with my teenage son in Spanish easily. Would recommend.
