More about me

Licensing: LPC, Addiction, Specialist
Years in Practice: 10

My name is Gwendolyn Young, I come to the counseling profession with life experiences that have molded me into the unique and determined person that I am today. While in my storm I did not understand, at times I felt hopeless. However, once I was able to break through the tension, I became mindful and aware of who I am as a person. Today I now understand that there are lessons to learn from the good things in life as well as the bad experiences that life has to offer. The benefits of those lessons were astronomical. Through it all I never gave up on myself even if the odds were totally against me. I am a licensed professional counselor and addiction specialist. I have earned a master's degree in professional counseling, a master's degree in addiction counseling and a post-master's in addiction specialization. I am a dedicated counselor that understand the many turmoil’s of those who seek my help. Additionally, I am a person-centered clinician skilled in the use of various theoretical orientations that will help the person to break through their life situation (s).

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I felt a connection with Gwen from the moment I saw her face on my computer screen during our first session. I can tell she loves what she does, and as I explained my painful childhood, I could see the concern in her eyes.

Gwen is smart, insightful, relatable, compassionate and has a talent for getting to the root of the problem. She offers humor during the session, knowing when and how is the appropriate time to to break up some of the hard work that can sometimes come with therapy.

Best therapist I have been to. She really understand my needs as a patient and continues to help me figure out how I should manage my issues.

Gwendolyn makes me feel supported and protected, she doesn’t make me feel like I am in therapy but more so I am just working through thoughts and emotions with guidance! We have technical issues sometimes but it doesn’t hinder anything.
