These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gwendolyn Young. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.
I had never been in therapy before so I had no idea what to expect. Gwendolyn was kind, open, and gave me a safe space to express my thoughts. She encouraged me to open up and be honest with myself. She worked with my partner and I while pushing us to successfully communicate. She gave her own perspectives and life examples and was easy to relate to. She didn’t sugar-coat things; she always kept it real. Gwendolyn was extremely helpful for my partner and I, giving us tools and strategies to use moving forward. I appreciate her sense of humor, her softness, honesty, and her directness. Gwendolyn is a therapist I would highly recommend.
Ms. Gwendolyn is awesome! She listens, provides support, and offers solutions.
I was concerned that my husband wouldn't take her counseling seriously because of her being a woman. But she quickly addressed us both without bias, and has been helping our relationship grow.
Great job Gwen. You helped me discovered the importance of helping my partner and I tackled what’s in front of us.
I feel as if she understands me and actually cares about helping me. I feel comfortable and willing to open up so she can help me. Things are going great and I think anyone would love to have her help.
Mrs. Gwen is absolutely amazing. She is one of a kind and I am so thankful for all that she has done. She has my recommendation 100 %!!!
We met with Gwen for couples counseling weekly for about 2 months. She was extremely helpful and easy to talk to. Absolutely no feelings of judgement from her, and it was easy to be open about our problems. Gwen was able to assist a lot with some addiction and codependency issues we have experienced. Additionally, Gwen was open with us and recommended additional help with some of our problems that were out of her scope. We appreciated her openness, and will definitely be reaching out for her help again should we ever need additional support in her areas of expertise.
Gwen is magic! we are so grateful to be connected with Gwen. she faced us without filter , and without letting us distract ourselves from our issues. we ended up with confidence and inspiration, really feel we were matched with the perfect counselor
Gwen is good at what she does. Highly recommend her. Very relatable and understanding. Ability to tackle difficult subjects head on
Gwen is a great match for me. She is engaging. attentive, and caring. She has given me useful counseling and hope in short order - we’ve only had two sessions so far, but I look forward to more.
Gwendolyn got to the root issue fairly quickly and gave us some things to work on that has worked successfully. I have definitely felt better after speaking with her.
She is great, has experience on different things to help out and listens to concerns and helps come up with plans to make things better.
She’s great very strait forward
