Gina was named Portland’s Best Life Coach in 2019 by Portland Business Recognition and has taught psychology courses, communication workshops, couples intimacy retreats, and guest lectured on alternative relationships and sex-positive therapy at universities across the US.

Gina knows with better relationship and sex education we’d build a more compassionate, creative, confident, and fulfilled society.  She believes we are entitled to desire and we all need meaningfully connected relationships to thrive. She knows all relationships need a tune-up from time to time and has been praised by clients for her friendly non-judgmental approach to couples work. 

She understands first-hand the struggles creative and entrepreneurial couples face as they navigate the abundant joys and challenges that come with a high-achieving lifestyle. Her clients span the globe as they set forth to make the world a better place for us all.

When she’s not teaching, coaching or consulting you can find her in her gorgeous urban garden, hiking Door County, Wisconsin with her tiny dog, cooking community dinners, playing with her two sweet little kiddos, or traveling the world with her partner, Rae.

Dr. Gina Senarighi Success Stories

Gratitude From a Client

Married couples

We didn’t need a ton of work on our relationship but we knew we didn’t want to end up like so many divorced couples we know. And we’d both had serious heartbreaks before. We were worried old patterns would show up. 

Working with Gina helped us understand ourselves better and make intentional choices about how we want to be together.more

"Gina's help and encouragement helped me be more gentle with myself. Her coaching has had the most healing property of anything I have tried yet." - M.S.

Appreciation From a Client

Women in non-monogamous relationships

We didn’t need a ton of work on our relationship but we knew we didn’t want to end up like so many divorced couples we know. And we’d both had serious heartbreaks before. We were worried old patterns would show up. 

Working with Gina helped us understand ourselves better and make intentional choices about how we want to be together.more

"Gina has so many great qualities. I always looked forward to what she had to say because I knew that it would be intelligent and thoughtful. Right off the bat, Gina gave me feedback and it had the unique quality of being true while also being compassionate and caring. I refer clients to Gina for couples counseling because I know they will be in good hands." - T.F.

Client Appreciation

Women in complicated relationships

Gina makes the most complex parts of our relationship problems really easy to understand. I didn’t know I needed to learn so much about relationships. I always walk away [from sessions] seeing things from a new perspective."Gina showed me compassion when I thought no one would. She is the best couples counselor I could have found." - D.D.

Great Client Review!

Women seeking to start over in a relationship

I’m sick of working with therapists and never really seeing anything change. Gina is different. I always walk away with things to think about and action steps to take. I feel like I’m making real progress for the first time."When people are truly meant to do something, it shows, it shines out of them with seeming grace, elegance and effectiveness. Gina has found her calling and she's amazing at what she does. Thank you, Gina, for sharing your counseling skills with the rest of us! I'm a better person for knowing you." - R.L.

Client Appreciation

Gay women

When we came [to see Gina] it felt like we were each doing our own thing. Now it feels like this is something we’re doing together... something that will bring us even closer. It was really good for me to have a facilitator help me move from scarcity and fear to connection."Gina has this uncanny ability to give really sane, insightful suggestions to help one manage struggles, all rooted in her non-judgmental, relaxed attitude." - K.G.
