Gina Schuchman, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Edina
I believe people are basically competent and come to therapy because they have run into problems and life transitions for which their usual coping skills are not working as they always have. I am actively involved: therapy is a working partnership in which we review all your clues and then find solutions that fit for your specific needs. I believe in the healing qualities of relationships. I have trained in Pia Mellody's PIT Model to work with people in recovery from childhood trauma, addictions and relationship problems who are struggling with anxiety, depression and other emotional stresses.
History of work settings: programs treating incest families, private psychiatric clinic,schools, OB-GYN clinic, private practice. I have learned many skills along the way and tailor my approach for each client so that therapy meets their needs. PIA MELLODY's training built a solid working model resolving codependency issues.
In practice for 37 years, have lived my own life as learning to work with others. I listen intensely, try to form partnerships with clients to bring them to their goals. I bring a lifetime of personal and professional knowledge to help plan for improvement in all areas of life.
