Welcome, I am Gwen Schubert Grabb, LMFT, CEDS-S
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and Supervisor
If you are considering making significant changes in your life, finding the right therapist for you can be an important turning point.
As a client-focused therapist, I will work collaboratively with you to first clarify and work toward your goals. Throughout this process, I will help you gain the necessary awareness and insight into the self-defeating behavior patterns that can negatively impact the important relationships in your life. Often, there are deep-seated negative perceptions that may be interfering with your ability to find and maintain meaningful relationships.
Even though you can’t change the past, you can alter the future by increasing your awareness of automatic thoughts, issues of self-worth and their roots. The purpose of therapy is not to blame others, but rather to understand how to take care of yourself so can make better choices.
As a therapist, I treat each of my clients with authenticity, respect, and compassion. If you are having a significant relationship issue, feeling dissatisfied in many areas of your life, or facing a specific illness or disorder, therapy offers the support and skills needed to make the changes you desire.
Please call, email, or complete the contact form below for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
My Treatment Specializations Include:
Eating disorders are a group of progressive illnesses that require psychological, nutritional and often medical interventions to achieve a full recovery.
Depression and Anxiety
Depression and anxiety are serious, but very treatable disorders that can be debilitating if left untreated.
Going off to college, getting divorced, dealing with loss or a recent empty nest, changing schools or careers can be difficult to navigate and feel overwhelming.
