Gina M. Peccia, MA, LPC A Mindful Renewal As a Certified Mindful Coach, Gina Peccia is practicing her lifelong passion: helping others in their time of need. With over 15 years of experience as a therapist working in the community mental health field, she is a wonderful example of staying true to yourself. However, before realizing where her true passion lied, she worked at a global pharmaceutical company and was an Executive Assistant to the Director of Marketing. She soon realized this was not her calling so she listened to her heart and went back to graduate school to become a therapist. After graduating, she worked in a traumatic brain injury program for adults and their families. She held a myriad of different titles in the field and finally decided to venture out to form her own private practice. Since 2012, she has been practicing independently and working with adolescents and adults suffering from mental health disorders, relationship issues, and stressors interfering with their contentment with life. Most recently, she became trained as a Certified Mindful Coach with a center in California. Learning from a Master Coach was a wonderful experience and she is now able to use what she learned to help others achieve their goals and gain balance in their own lives. She says, “Throughout all my roles, I believe in the value of mindfulness to bring peace and a sense of well-being to our daily lives.” For more information, call 609-204-9940 or visit
