My name is Velma Staples-Foster LMFT127905, but I go by Gwen. Are you feeling stuck or finding it difficult to move forward? Regardless of the reason you are feeling this way it takes courage to reach out and ask for help. Let me be "your person" to assist you with removing the obstacles that are keeping you from being your best self. I have a passion for helping others. I have a BA in Psychology, a MA in Counseling with a concentration in Life Coaching and a MA in Marriage and Family therapy. I am a licensed clinical trauma professional.
With over 20 years' experience in practicing positive psychology, I have the tools necessary to help you achieve the peace and serenity that healing provides. I use a lot of trauma focused CBT, grounding techniques, mindfulness, visualization techniques, somatic exercises and psychodynamics.
Due to my own personal trauma throughout my childhood, I was motivated to go to school to learn how to overcome my pain. Through the journey of exploration, I discovered a passion to help others experience the joy of being completely healed from your past trauma and being able to enjoy life without feeling stuck in the nightmare of your past.
