Gwen Burson, MA
Licensed Marriage
& Family Therapist

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families. It is my privilege to come along side people at key times in their lives to provide support and guidance as they navigate through the stresses of life such as change and transitions, marital, family and relational problems, parenting challenges and their desire for personal and spiritual growth. I have found that people are helped by learning new skills and perspectives while finding healing from old hurts and unhealthy patterns. Although there are common threads in the things that trip us up in life, I believe each person must be treated with dignity and respect as an individual with unique skills, perspectives and life experiences.

Specialties include: depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, marriage counseling, parenting, women's issues, codependency, grief counseling, divorce recovery, critical incident debriefing, EMDR, workplace stress, life transitions, spiritual issues.

Medical Insurance and Employee Assistance Programs

I accept a number of insurances including Blue Shield, UBH, Pacificare, Value Options, Aetna, MHN, United Healthcare and Magellan and am a part of several EAP (employee assistance programs).
