Hello and thank you for coming to my website. My name is Gwyneth Mason and I am a licensed professional counselor. I welcome your questions about therapy and I look forward to working with you to embrace your feelings so you can experience a richer life. If you are feeling anxious, stressed, angry, depressed your feelings are trying to let you know how you are doing. Are you happy? Are you at peace with how you are living your life? Have you experienced some traumatic event in your life and if so, how has this affected you?
I believe that trauma is another way of giving you another chance to find out more about yourself and therapy is a way to find more tools so you can learn how to use your trauma as a way to free yourself to be your true self and not be controlled by your feelings, you can take control of your own feelings and give yourself more options.
Trauma makes us afraid to live and we react to the fear by trying many ways to avoid or cover our fears with addictions or addictive type behavior. Not everything is fear or trauma based. Sometimes we are just very stressed from work, family obligations and we need help with learning how to de-stress so we can be available to work and with our family and to enjoy life again.
If any of these things are familiar to you and you would like to call me for a brief consultation to see if I will be a good fit for you then give me a call and together we can rebuild your confidence and find balance again in your life.
I hope you will call and I look forward to working with you.
