Gwen is patient, kind, and easy to talk to. I can bring my whole self to my sessions. We always check in about what I want to work on, and we celebrate my progress often. She provides helpful tips and exercises that have been easy to implement in my everyday life.

Gwen is one of the best therapists I have had. I usually struggle to feel comfortable in session but I immediately felt comfortable with Gwen and have gotten farther in a few sessions than I normally get in months. Very highly recommended

Gwen is an active listener and really participates in being a strong advocate in my everyday problems she has great insight to issues and really responds well. She truly does feel for her patients and just wants us to get better and help us work through our demons. I have never had a therapist listen and give active feedback like she has. Even on my rough days I just want to smile while talking in our appointments.
