About Gianna (she/her)

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Group Psychotherapist, and I have been providing counseling and psychotherapy to many different types of people in the Austin area for over 20 years. In 1998, I received my master’s degree in social work from the University of Texas at Austin, and I have been in private practice since 2003. I am also a board-approved clinical supervisor for social workers in Texas.

I believe that the best therapists are those who actively pursue personal and professional growth. I regularly pursue continuing education and interactive consultation in the theoretical areas that most inform my clinical practice, including contemporary psychoanalytic thought, attachment theory, and interpersonal neurobiology. I am a student at the Center for Group Studies in New York City.

I have served on the board of directors for the Austin Group Psychotherapy Society and am a provider with the SIMS Foundation, and I am an active member of several other professional organizations, including Austin IN Connection, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and Austin Psychoanalytic.
