Gwendolyn Nelson-Terry, San Diego Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Hi, I'm Gwendolyn,  I specialize in working with busy moms who are struggling to find balance between caring for themselves and caring for their family. I also specialize in working with women who may be experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety, and/or depression due to a recent life transitions.  Some things about me that might help you decide if I'm the right therapist for you:  I'm an active therapist, meaning, I ask questions, point out patterns and actions and help you to get to the root of what really brought you into my office.  Past client's have described me as gentle, caring, nurturing, understanding and unshockable.  There is a balance to be found in therapy and I hold space for my client's thoughts and emotions while also creating an environment of encouragement and safety that allows for my clients to take risks and try new ways of approaching old patterns, problems and challenging feelings.  I know it is possible to heal, grow, and create fulfilling relationships.  I also know change is scary.  With the right support and the willingness to try to do things differently I know that you too can feel better.  Learn more...
