Tina Gilbertson was living the dream. She resided in New York and had inched her way up the corporate ladder to finally arrive at a successful position in television. The only problem was; it wasn’t her dream – it was everyone else’s. Eventually Tina’s dissatisfaction led to the therapy couch; she had decided to find her answers in therapy. This time of self-examination came with a surprise; Tina uncovered her true passion— she wanted to help people as a professional counselor.
After going back to college and becoming licensed, Tina found herself specializing in feelings and how people actually sabotage themselves by trying to feel emotions for which they’ve built no foundation. Her new book, Constructive Wallowing: How to Beat Bad Feelings by Allowing Yourself to Have Them is the result of years of hard work (on herself) as well as helping others. Tina has written feature articles on emotional intelligence and health for Portland’s Natural Awakenings magazine, and contributes wisdom as a self-esteem expert for online therapist directory GoodTherapy.org.
