I am a relational counselor. To me, rapport is the most important thing. I seek out connection and a good therapeutic relationship: this ERP is yours. It is not mine. Let's come up with ideas together, discuss and collaborate. Outside of work, I'm the mom of a teenager, and I love to do art journaling, needle felting, and outdoor activities like kayaking.

It's such a wonderful thing to see people come in at the end of therapy and say, “That doesn't bother me. I don't think about that anymore.” It's exciting to see the relief on people's faces. They're so happy that thoughts aren't haunting them anymore. I love to be a part of that journey.

Nov 09, 2022

I was really nervous to start OCD therapy especially because ERP is a new modality for me, but Gwen really helped me feel seen and heard right from the first minute of our session! I actually feel hopeful that I can get through this even though it will be hard work because now I feel less alone with the NOCD community. Gwen was very kind, empathetic, and attentive the whole session and I felt like I could share about my issues without judgement. I look forward to this journey!

Gwen is the absolute best OCD therapist that I could have been matched with. So caring and kind.

My therapist Gwen is excellent in listening to the problem and then dissecting, clarifying when its difficult for me to explain my thoughts. She is understanding, compassionate and never judgmental. She challenges me and my thoughts and is more than willing to be there every step of the way.

Gwen is supportive and makes it ok to be as you are!
