Level Up Therapy, LLC was created by Gina Snavlin, LCPC. Being a self-identified game fanatic, Gina appreciates the challenges and adaptability that comes with playing a game. Much like those challenges, therapy often includes problem solving, experiencing loss or gains, and perhaps even being “stuck” awhile before being able to Level Up!
My approach includes using techniques in a way to help you better understand yourself and create the changes you are seeking. I encourage insight oriented work to help promote more awareness in your thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. I fully believe awareness is the starting point of meaningful decision making and change.
What we focus on and practice in session will be tailored to include your preferences, strengths, and your goals for therapy. The theories and techniques I draw from include: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Relaxation Techniques. These approaches are well-researched and recommended for treatment of a wide variety of concerns and symptoms.
I strive to maintain current in my work with you. This includes ongoing participation in trainings, consultations, and peer lead groups.
