Meet Our Founders


Jeremy and Gina Desmond met in 2002 while working for a mobile psychiatric crisis team at a local state hospital - love at first sight!  They spent many years working together, building a family with their three amazing sons Nolan, Giovanni, and Julian, and their dog Charlie.  Jeremy and Gina created Insight Counseling & Wellness in 2015 with the goal of building a business that truly supports therapists, so that they, in-turn, can provide the best care for clients in their favorite neighborhood, Jamaica Plain, MA.  Insight Counseling & Wellness continues to grow with locations, services and incredible staff every year.

Both Jeremy and Gina have decades of combined clinical leadership and management experience working at both for-profit and non-profit clinical settings throughout the Greater Boston area.  Time and again, they witnessed one major barrier to excellent mental health treatment - therapist turnover.  Gina explains; “When your best therapists are burnt out due to unrealistic productivity expectations, lack of support, and unfair compensation, they will leave suddenly and disillusioned.  This leads to clients that were counting on them feeling abandoned, mistrustful of the clinical process, and disillusioned themselves; and the cycle continues.  We always knew there was a better way.” 

Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that our staff should have the tools and support they need to provide the best possible care for our clients.  Each clinician is vetted carefully, working flexible hours to maintain a healthy work/life balance while also meeting the needs of their clients’ schedules and challenges.  We let our therapists do what they do best - help people, and we take care of the rest.  This is why our staff at Insight Counseling & Wellness are so good at what they do.  They are motivated, optimistic, and at the top of their game to provide the best individualized care for each of their clients.  We are proud to offer a diverse, talented, and incredibly knowledgeable staff who are here to help you walk through the many challenges our community faces today.  At Insight Counseling & Wellness, “Hope, Healing, & Happiness are Insight!”
