Gina Fahouri is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is bilingual in Spanish and has been providing psychotherapy services for over 15 years. Her bicultural background gives her good insight in how to help diverse individuals and families from all backgrounds manage issues ranging from family conflict to depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic mental illness and co occurring drug and alcohol issues.
Gina chose a career as a Marriage and Family Therapist in part because of her own positive experiences with therapy around the time she was about to graduate from high school. Gina was fortunate enough to have a therapist of her own who really listened and helped her through a brief but tumultuous adolescent transition. After finishing her BA in psychology at UC Berkeley, she decided to volunteer at a local peer counseling collective. She was trained in a style of therapy that emphasizes inherent worth and resiliency and saw how helpful this approach could be in her future work. She finished her Masters in Counseling Psychology at Cal State, East Bay and began her career as a psychotherapist, working for several years in Los Angeles and for the last 11 years in the Bay Area.
