Personal set-backs and conflictual relationships are common problems that we all can face at some point in our lives. My approach is respectful and compassionate. I have doctoral level clinical training, research experience, several publications, and am adjunct faculty at Virginia Tech.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
Therapy is an investment in yourself. The best therapeutic relationship is a partnership with common goals. With over 25 years experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings, Ms. Ryan has worked with diverse client populations and diagnoses. Please call for a confidential phone consultation.

Whether your present life feels unmanageable, or past hurtful experiences are still causing you pain, there is hope. Reaching out for help is the first step to making positive changes in your life. As a therapist, my goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can share, explore, and achieve greater self-awareness. Together, we will build on the strengths you already possess to help you grow and find balance. My style of therapy is a conversational, collaborative approach aimed at helping people understand themselves better. I am experienced in helping people work through a variety of life challenges, including: mood related disorders such as anxiety and depression, trauma and abuse, domestic violence, stress, problematic substance use, self-esteem issues, life transitions, relationships, grief, marriage and family and addiction. My foundation as a therapist is based on hope and grace. "What's broken can be mended. What hurts can be healed. And no matter how dark it gets, the sun will rise again." - Unknown. I feel it's a privilege to be able to join in your journey.
Others view you as someone to turn to: dedicated and reliable. You’re a good listener. You often put others needs before yours. You have high standards for others and even higher standards for yourself. You’ve accomplished almost everything you’ve ever put your mind to, despite many obstacles. You have a great life…but you struggle with being connected to the life you’ve created. YOU ARE SEEKING HEALING AND LONGING FOR CLARITY. That’s where I can help. My aim as a therapist is to give you a space to feel heard so you can break the patterns that are holding you back.

Gwen Shandroski, Expressive Arts Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist, Speech-Language Pathologist
Registered PsychotherapistVIEW PROFILE
I help my clients/patients feel comfortable to begin therapy. I have gone through this process as a client and as a therapist many times. Feeling understood and having someone help you take a look at what is going on can be very refreshing and provide some hope. My background in speech-language pathology has prepared me to work with clients who have difficulty expressing themselves. Expressive arts therapy is an alternative way to reach feelings and represent the experience you're having.
I believe that no one is broken. We have all learned strategies to survive as best we could. Therefore, we can learn new strategies and alter our lives so that we can thrive. As a psychotherapist, writer, and life coach, I have worked for the past 40 years in both Australia and America. I was a director of a Family Therapy Program in Sydney, Australia, and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. My belief is that the only thing that is wrong is what we've been taught to think and believe about ourselves that stop us from being our true selves. Therefore, my goal is to empower clients to be the hero or heroine to face adversity, overcome anxiety, and create empowering stories that lead to healthier relationships. I am the author of "The Roadmap Home: Your GPS to Inner Peace" an Amazon bestseller and "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy," coauthored with Mari Frank.
