Gina Ko, LPC Associate


“You deserve the opportunity for change, no matter where you are in life. Remember, you are not alone. We will work together to overcome challenges and cultivate resilience at a pace that feels right for you.”

Welcome! My name is Gina Ko and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A) under the clinical supervision of Jane Godelia, LPC-S, LMSW. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Applied Learning and Development from the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating, I began my professional career as a classroom teacher and had the privilege of teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 4th grade. Throughout my years as a teacher, I discovered my passion for addressing the diverse needs of children and families and supporting them on a more personal level. This realization led me to pursue a Master’s degree in School Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I currently serve as the school counselor at Spicewood Elementary where I have been working with children and adults for the past 5 years. I have experience working in individual and group settings, addressing a diverse range of challenges, such as anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, trauma, emotion management, grief, parenting, and self-esteem. In 2022, I received my Clinical Mental Health Counseling certificate from Lamar University, which allowed me to jumpstart my journey as a LPC-A. I am so excited to reach even more hearts at Mindful Connections Counseling.

My approach to therapy first begins by developing genuine and positive connections. I do this by validating your experiences and feelings with empathy, no matter your background. I provide a safe, trusting, and supportive space for children, teens, and adults to feel comfortable being themselves. I am intentional with my practice, while also allowing for lots of exploration and fun. I am client-centered and draw from cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused techniques. Along with talk-therapy, I also incorporate expressive art, mindfulness, and play therapy practices into my sessions. I conduct sessions both in-person and virtually, allowing you to decide what works best for your lifestyle.

There is incredible value in self-care and devoting time for yourself. During my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy taking advantage of beautiful weather and going for walks or playing tennis. I love traveling, eating, trying new restaurants, going to the movies, and relaxing at home or the spa.
