About this pro

TELEHEALTH sessions via phone or video only using HIPPA compliant Doxy.me format.
I am Licensed both in Texas and Florida and can serve those clients anywhere in both of those staes.
My Website is www.stronglivingcounseling.com if you want to learn more about the services I offer.
 
Therapy should not be scary nor should it be complicated. I provide a non-judgmental, safe environment for you to explore your concerns and become the best version of yourself. My clients describe me as encouraging, loving, motivating and professional.. I don't use psychobabble. My approach is down to earth, educational and adapted to meet your individual style. I use psychological principals combined with lifestyle education (exercise, diet, nutrition) to empower you to start living the life you want. These techniques may be used for physical and emotional problems and may positively impact areas such as personal relationships, sports and business.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 24 years of professional experience and two Master's degrees. My career experiences include working in a hospital, a high school and owning a private practice. More importantly, beyond my credentials, is that you feel comfortable with me. This is the foundation of a powerful therapeutic relationship.  I specialize in working with highly sensitive, empathic, gifted individuals who at times find it hard to find a therapist who can relate thus leaving them feeling more alone.  I never want any of my clients to feel alone as they work through the things that are challenging in their lives.
I may not have walked a mile in your shoes but I guarantee, I've tried them on or I may have even run a marathon in them. I "get it". I use techniques that protect your dignity, teach you how to process the source of your pain while gaining strength, understanding and compelling insight.

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
