About Dr. Gina

 

In the process of helping parents and individuals, Dr. Gina Madrigrano aims at bringing joy back into their lives and find peace in the day to day. She helps clients uncover the answers that lie within them already. She uncovers each individual’s unique gifts and strengths in order for them to live the lives they were meant to live. Pain is an inevitable part of the human experience, but suffering is optional.

Through her guidance, Dr. Gina helps individuals eliminate unnecessary suffering through strategies that even children can apply, as this is a natural state of childhood that we seem to have lost. Thus, she helps people return to that state with which they used to be familiar with, and through the process, individuals fe el they have found “home” once again.

Dr. Gina Madrigrano is a clinical psychologist with training in health science and psychology. She has extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and adults. Dr. Madrigrano is also a forensic psychologist who specializes with sex offenders and violent offenders. She has a particular interest in prevention, with a holistic approach to mental health, and she has been actively involved in research as well as in clinical interventions, including supervision.  She conducts individual, couples, family, and group treatment.

Dr. Madrigrano has developed workshops to train professionals in schools, correctional institutions, and the general public. She has developed treatment programs in major institutions as well as in small community agencies.
