Yes, those persons will be disappointed, but they will figure it out. People adjust and it is okay.”

One of Dr. Gia’s quests in life is to see people on the journey to healing and wholeness. With a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University and a Masters and Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology from University of Windsor, Canada...
