Hello & Welcome!
You're already achieving goals and making progress by looking for a therapist! Congrats! Let's see if we're a good fit!
My name is Gianna Russo-Mitma and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Intern in Portland, Oregon.
Are you going through a life transition? Are you dealing with family issues that you can't seem to work through? Are you feeling alone and don't have someone to process things with? That's where our work together starts...
I work with individuals, couples, and families, and specialize in teen girls (and all the issues that come with that), co-parents (trying to cooperatively parent after separation or divorce), and family of origin issues (creating and enforcing boundaries with your family, even if you love them dearly).
Being empathetic and genuine with my clients are two of the most important aspects of my style of therapy. I enjoy working together with my clients to create change, while always maintaining a productive outlook (yes, just sitting and talking is actually productive also). In this office, you will not be judged, as we are all human, and this is a safe space for conversation and healing.
While therapy is usually a new experience for most, I believe that counseling can benefit anyone who is willing to try it. You can do it!
