Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, located in Dublin, California. I work with children, adults, families and couples. My approach to healing integrates Somatic Experiencing® techniques with traditional psychotherapy. In addition to effectively addressing trauma, these techniques can also help to relieve common symptoms of stress, depression, irritability, and anxiety. My practice of therapy is fundamentally based in my understanding of the scientific basis for emotions and human relationships. The modern study of human nature, originating from such fields as neurobiology, cognitive science, and child development, is contributing to a new perspective on how we heal. We now clearly know that our minds and our bodies, rather than being casual acquaintances, work together to help us successfully navigate life's opportunities and challenges. I focus on providing a profound sense of safety in therapy to support you in becoming fully available for the process of healing. Your work with me is intended to allow you to access the vitality needed to support your lifelong individual and interpersonal growth. Perhaps you are seeking help with a particular problem, such as depression or anxiety, which is affecting your relationships with family, friends, fellow professionals, or intimate partners. Unresolved issues of grief and loss may continue to distract you from the present moment. A single event, or many throughout your life, could be contributing to lasting symptoms of trauma. You may desire more out of your life and not know how to find it. Often, it is difficult to reach out for support, to overcome the fear of being judged. You are not alone. Help is available. Please explore my website at www.gwynnegilson.com. After you explore my website, please call me for a free, 20-minute consultation to explore how I can assist you in taking the next step. The path to self-understanding and healing can feel scary, but I truly believe it is the most important journey a human being can take. Together we will identify the strengths you already possess, which will help guide you toward rediscovering your innate capacity for growth and greater ease in living.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
