I’m Dr. Gia

I’m a psychologist, author, consultant, integrative medicine health coach, lecturer, and longtime meditation practitioner.

We are all interconnected

Growing up, my brother and I were taught by our parents to love deeply, work hard, and take responsibility for whatever needs to be done. They instilled in us the notion that each of us are part of a greater whole. With this outlook, I began a career in journalism.

I don’t take my health for granted

From age two until twelve, I lived with a medical condition that kept me from feeling fully carefree. The treatments also made me see myself as a little different from my friends.

But the experience taught me to deeply honor mental and physical health, and ingrained in me a sincere sense of empathy for others, which I bring to my personal and professional relationships.

From journalist
to psychologist

I loved my job as a field producer for CNN. But I returned to school to study psychology. At the Renfrew Center, Monte Nido, and the UCLA Counseling Center I provided clinical services. Additionally at UCLA, I served as director of the Eating Disorders Program, coauthored its first clinical care manual, worked as a clinical supervisor, and taught an intuitive eating body-image class. I also joined the Breaking the Chains Foundation as a clinical board member and started a private practice.

Working with
brilliant leaders

Other highlights of my career include working with the UCLA Department of Athletics to support the well-being of athletes, training as an integrative medicine health coach with Duke Integrative Medicine, and launching the Nourish for Life outpatient program at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine.

True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are. It requires you to BE who you are.

Brene Brown

You cannot save people, you can just love them.

Anaïs Nin

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

I’m here to help

My regular meditation practice, long walks in nature, and spending time with friends and family—along with my work as a psychologist—keep me grounded, grateful, and thriving. I am honored to be able to help shine a light on the path that leads people to where they want to be. I’m honored to partner with my clients on their journey toward healing and intentional living.
