Gina Romero 
(she/her)

 

Professional Experience

I am licensed in WA, NV, and CO. I've had many different job titles in my adult life. These range from Job Coach, to Bakery Worker, to Caregiver, to Employment Consultant. I've worked in the services industry, and in the government and non-profit sectors. During my time in grad school, I completed an internship with my local fire department. The first time I stepped into a fire station, I asked a young firefighter how he coped with trauma. His response surprised me, as he shared he coped with denial and avoidance. His job appeared to leave him with trauma, and reasons to drink. I knew [at that moment] that I'd someday work with people impacted by trauma. After my internship, I began working at a correctional facility. I continued to see the impacts of trauma during my four years there. I also saw a lot of professionals who struggled with work/life balance, and work-related mental-health concerns. When I opened Wandering Pine Wellness, I knew I wanted to focus on supporting professionals in high-stress career fields. I’m passionate about helping people restore their balance if they’ve found themselves taking their work home with them, or have experienced job-related anxiety or trauma.

Personal

As a person with chronic illness and ADHD, I struggled to find my own balance during much of my adult life. I wanted to do my best at work, make time for friends and family, and pursue a dozen different hobbies. What I was left with, instead, was a feeling of burnout. This experience has taught me to prioritize rest, and also helped me find meaning in contributing to the workplace in a healthy way.  I’d love to support you on your journey toward greater wellbeing. I love this work and I hope you can feel my passion shine through our work together.

Therapists (this one included!) are real people with lives outside of the therapy room. In my free time, you can find me hiking with my two giant dogs, exploring national parks with my spouse, kayaking, and making medium talk with strangers. I also love watching the Seattle Mariners, even though they make me sad.
