What Others Say
“Gwendolyn seems to connect instantly with others – whether they are hurting from fresh grief, stuck in cycles of pain from trauma, or they’re just trying to find direction. Gwendolyn’s compassion and empathy comes through with a calming nature that words cannot explain. It is not unusual for others to say “I feel like I’ve known her forever” after talking with Gwen for just a little while.”
“Gwen shares her real-life experiences without watering down the challenges of navigating the toughest parts, so others know they are not alone, and their experiences are not unique or insurmountable. She shares her truth and gives us hope that we can make it through hard and painful situations.”
“Her transparency breaks down the barriers to getting better and healing because she shares the real details of what it looks and feels like to be sidelined with life challenges, and what it really takes to move forward. She has a strong faith but doesn’t force it on you or make you feel uncomfortable about where you are on your journey.”
