Ever since starting my therapeutic journey, Gwendolyn has been guiding me through this positive path in life; therefore, it can only get better from here on out. Still dealing with life and certain people in my life who are not a benefit to my well-being, Gwendolyn is and will continue to help me block them out of my life, and to keep very little contact with them.
Gwendolyn and I will continue to focus on my healing through this difficult time in my life. Thank you Gwendolyn.

Gwen is our Savior! I appreciate how she connects with us! Her honest and complete fairness as well as her ability to delve right in is impeccable. Although Gwynn is friendly and makes friends with us, she is still professional, non-threatening, and gets to the root of the issue quickly. She’s a godsend for sure.

Gwen is a wonderful personality. She observes and speaks and uses her knowledge to resolve issues. She gives proper assignments to work on. She demonstrated that she does this work for fulfillment not just her salary. Amazing counselor. Thank you Gwen for doing this.

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.

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.

Written on Jun 02, 2022 after therapy with Gwendolyn for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

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.
