I'm humbled by the work that I do. I think my clients are among the strongest people I know. It takes a strong person to be vulnerable and to trust as they make changes in their lives. I'm honored that my clients trust me and I believe that trust is earned not just given. I love to help my clients out of pain, to identify what's holding them back and to do life with them. 50% of my practice involves working with males and 50% is working with women. I also work with firefighters, police officers and first responders as these positions can be very demanding and can cause virtual trauma; thus needing other modalities than just talking therapy to process that type of information effectively
My passion is also to help balance the brain naturally by finding out through genetic testng (a simple cheek swab) what neurotransmitters are low i.e seritonin, dopamine endorphins, Gaba etc...that may be causing psychological distress or are linked to behaviors and thought processes. This can also help with ADHD. By giving one's brain the neuronutrients it needs; these deficits can be corrected thus creating a different life and well- being. If interested, please go to www.stronglivingcounseling.com and click on services and go to GARS link and to the Restoragen link for more detailed info.
Even if a person already has a therapist, I can do the GARS test over the phone and interpret the results to get one started on the correct Restoragen formula for one's particular genetics thus balancing the brain naturally.This has changed my life and many of the clients I work with.
Lastly, I am an animal lover and so enjoy meeting my client's pets as I believe they are a part of the family and assist in our healing. I would love to meet your pets as well!

I have known and been working with Gwen for about 8 years now. There are not enough words to describe her amazing gifts and abilities. Not only is she the most loving, kind and gentle person I have ever known but her professionalism and education of the working mind is beyond all others. Her ability to resolve a plaguing issue from so many different directions sets her apart from anyone else in her field. You will not find anyone else like her. Sent from my iPhone
