Welcome to Strong Living Counseling

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction, ends up being the biggest step of your life. 

Everyone Needs to Talk to Someone Sometime.

Often times, we may feel alone when others are unable to understand our deepest pain or struggle. Its not easy for us to face what hurts us most. Trauma can come in the form of a break up, depression, lack of focus, sleeplessness, loss, anxiety or feeling stuck or numb.  


About Gwen

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW, MAEL

As a trauma specialist, I have a deep understanding of how trauma affects our brain and our ability to function in life. 

I am a “connecter”. I’m not afraid to go where many won’t.

I meet my client’s where they are at; wherever that is.





I just want to say that I’m here today because you exist and I met you. You are one of my favorite people in the world. No matter what my views on life are, I am really thankful that I am your client.  I’m sure that I am one of the many that feel this way. Thank you very much for doing your job well, for your kindness, dedication, and for being real.

I was always excited to see you and it was one of the brightest parts of my week! Your style was perfect for me, as it never seemed “overly-clinical” and you never made me feel as though you just counseled for a “job”.

I just loved that you understood the depth of my sensitivity and could truly help me find ways to work through things. No one will ever match your perfection! 🙂 I consider our paths crossing when they did true divine intervention.
