Since I began seeing Gina De Sousa, I have personally experienced tremendous growth and improvement in my life and all of my relationships.  Gina is a very compassionate, caring, and helpful therapist.  In addition to listening and giving feedback, she will recommend and encourage her patients to take action to improve their lives.  She also recommends that patients read books and other literature on their situations, so that they may better understand what is happening and the ways to deal with it and change it.  I believe with all my heart that her goal is to help her patients.  She wants to see her patients grow and improve.  I highly recommend that anyone seeking emotional, relational, or psychological help should contact Gina.

I began seeing Gina in individual therapy after my 2nd marriage collapsed and I was consumed with grief. Our first visits were difficult. I didn't know what to expect. Gina listened and allowed my to vent. She asked pertinent questions, and gave me reading assignments that allowed me to reflect and explore my life experiences. That meeting was in the year 2000. Today I am a regular participant in a group therapy session for men once a week. I find Gina to be extremely knowledgeable and extraordinarily patient and compassionate. She doesn't allow me to skirt the issues I'm facing. She is direct and honest. I highly recommend that anyone looking to improve the quality of their lives see Gina and make a commitment to explore yourself with her guidance.

I would not recommend Ms. De Sousa. I saw Gina for 3 sessions and the whole time I did not like the way I was treated. She is very much interested in what she has to say and interrupted me constantly. When I told her I did not want to talk about something, she kept asking me why. A good therapist would have moved on. She also has a dark sense of humor that really rubbed me the wrong way. If you question her, she reminds you that she has had 25+ years of experience. I saw a psychiatrist today and she told me that many people have said the same things about Gina.
