Our Providers

Industry-leading physicians and healthcare leaders have inspired nurses like Ginger, to excel beyond the norm.

As an RN, she became frustrated by the inability to autonomously promote change and impact the lives of those needing specialized care.

In 2016, after more than a decade of working in the specialties of oncology and neurology, she attended CSULB and obtained her MSN and became a Family Nurse Practitioner and then completed her Doctorate of Nursing in 2022, from Aspen University.

She trained for several years in addiction medicine learning from two highly respected board-certified addiction physicians in Los Angeles and Orange County.

The gained experience allowed her to develop advanced skills and learn the craft of safe substance detox and medication-assisted treatment, management of withdrawal symptoms, treatment of chronic pain in those with history of opioid abuse, & simultaneous treatment of addiction, pain and mental health. 

In 2018, she co-founded SoCal Behavioral Medicine, Inc., in order to provide a safe haven for stigmatized populations that need help with addiction, under-managed pain, and behavioral health issues, in a private patient-focused relationship. She looks forward to working with each client to achieve sobriety goals while improving function and quality of life.
