About Me

   I'm Ginelle Krummey, MA LPCA NCC... fellow weirdo, flower and vegetable gardener, trauma survivor, friend, relentless optimist, and counselor. These are just a few of my identities, and I would love to learn about yours. 

   In the journey of the past 8 years, I have been in service to individuals and families in vastly different treatment settings, and it has resulted in my absolute conviction that all people can grow and change in the presence of unconditional care. I love this work! As a secondary reward to doing solid emotional work, being a part of a team was always a meaningful part of the experience. This is the backdrop to my interest in workplace wellness, resilience, and communication. 

 

   I am focused on working with young adults on navigating their past and present life events with complete belief in their worthiness of feeling better, and living an empowered, meaningful life. I have treasured my experience serving survivors of sexual violence, and LGBTQIA+ individuals. Additionally, I support people who dedicate their energies to helping others: direct care mental health staff, non-profit workers, activists, teachers, and medical professionals who may be experiencing symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue, secondary traumatic stress, or vicarious traumatization. Not sure if that's you? We can talk about how symptoms look for each of these syndromes. 

   I also work with people having other concerns (see below). Over the years I have equipped myself with widely applicable treatment modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy. I integrate these models with dedication to Trauma-Informed Care and Strengths-Based Practice with Developmental and Attachment lenses. Sometimes I make use of the present moment and body-based, somatic approaches to nervous-system regulation. My counseling style blends principles from these models in a tailored way to each group or individual served. Most importantly, we will also laugh. Therapy can be powerful, deep,"ugly"--and it can be light, casual, and everything in between.  

 

   Populations I've served include adolescent foster youth in residential treatment as direct care staff, adults with chronic mental illness in a Clubhouse rehabilitation setting, veterans experiencing and exiting homelessness as a case manager, and families with children who are at risk of out-of-home placement. I mention these settings to explain how I came to know with certainty that there is no unworthy person, and no problem so big that it will cause me to lose hope, even if you do periodically.

​Some of the themes we might work with include:

  • Life stage transition/developmental issues

  • Past/present relational traumas

  • Family of origin issues

  • Recovery from habitual behaviors

  • Workplace traumas

  • Identity intersections, examination of privilege & oppression

  • History of sexual violence

  • Medical trauma

  • Spirituality exploration

  • Grief and loss

  • Empowerment

  • Mindfulness strategies

  • Self-compassion

  • Emotion regulation 

  • ... frankly, anything you bring to the room, I am willing to hold.
     

Therapeutic fit is important! I invite you to a free telephone consultation to help make your decision.
