Tina Gilbertson, LPC, BC-TMH
Years ago as a young adult, I found myself feeling unfulfilled. My life in New York City and my career in television should have been fun and exciting, but I wasn’t happy. I decided to seek counseling to find out what the heck was wrong with me.
My experience in therapy changed the course of my life.
I underwent a personal renaissance as my self-awareness deepened. I was using some of my aptitudes – reasoning, writing and teaching – in my work, but the most important element was still missing.
As my heart opened up to fully experience the pain of my career dissatisfaction, a desire to help and support others came to the fore. Service was the missing piece of the puzzle for me. That’s how I decided to become a therapist.
From both sides of the therapy room, I learned about the impact of our thoughts and feelings on our ability to communicate, both at home and at work. I’m convinced that how we feel about ourselves affects how we relate to others, and vice-versa.
I offer therapy to individual adults. I specialize in estrangement counseling for parents rejected by adult children, because no parent should ever have to lose a child for any reason. I find this work to be complex and incredibly rewarding.
I’m the co-founder, with my husband Mike, of the Reconnection Club, a resource for parents estranged from one or more of their adult children.
I hold a master’s degree in counseling psychology and am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Oregon (C2577) and Colorado (LPC.0012737)
As a Board-Certified Telemental Health Provider (BC-TMH #0371) I’m pleased to offer online therapy and teletherapy (phone counseling) to residents of Colorado and Oregon.
