About Me

Hello, my name is Gwendolyn Henry (you can call me Gwen). I am a Licensed Therapist and Life Coach with over 25 years of experience. I have worked with victims of sexual abuse, adults suffering with Depression, Anxieties and grief in many forms. The last 10 years of my career I worked with Veterans who were traumatized from military involvement.

My style of treatments that have proven successful over the years are: active listening, sensitivity to your concerns/trauma, and encouragement, with a non-judgmental approach to your life situations. Establishing a trusting relationship is extremely important in this journey; it is a key to healing, learning, and prosperity. Together we create a treatment plan and together it is adjusted and reevaluated for your success. We travel this path together.

My Specialties are:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing)
Grief Therapy
Anxiety Disorder (utilizing breath work)
Depressive Disorder
Hypnotherapy (induction)
Art Therapy

I am so glad you have decided to take this next step to achieve a happier/self-directed life. Together we will achieve goals that are established for a new beginning. I count it an honored to work with you. Thank you for the opportunity.

I have worked with Miss Gwen for almost 5 months now. She has helped me through a lot. She is honest, a very good listener, very respectful, and very understanding. She works at my pace and doesn't pressure me to do things. I've learned things that actually help me. I love working with her and will continue to. :)

Gwen is a very good and nice therapist. Even though I had to stop therapy due to my summer job schedule, she had helped me a lot and made me feel special and happy inside. She listened and gave me good advice. Thank you for being a really good therapist Gwen!

Gwen is an incredible therapist. Her gentle and loving approach was exactly what I needed to help me get through the loss of my dad. She is kind, genuine, and truly cares about her clients. Her calm presence makes you feel comfortable right away.
I would highly recommend her to anyone!

When I decided that I needed to focus on my mental health, I knew that I needed a therapist with a lot of experience considering all of the issues that I needed to unpack. Along with someone who understands my spiritual needs. Gwendolyn pushes me to do the work, while listening attentively during our sessions. I am able to focus on moving forward with skills and positive coping mechanisms while addressing areas of my life where I need to “confront” certain circumstances, with the ability to move forward. Mental health is important to me and the purpose that I am to walk in accordingly, while accepting my own accountability. I believe less than 5% of this earthly population is able to recognize this. And for that I appreciate my sessions with Gwendolyn, and as a Black woman, I don’t feel stigmatized at all that I choose to love myself and evolve!!!

Work with me!
