Hi, my name is Mary Gale Gurnsey and I am a relationship and trauma expert. I work with individuals, couples, and families who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress or just feeling overwhelmed who would like to feel more relaxed and report satisfaction in all areas of their life.

What separates me from others is my background in the treatment of trauma and attachment. I work with you as a team and really listen and understand your specific needs. Rather than spending years in therapy and getting nowhere, I will work with you step by step in order to achieve your goals and because of this, you will see the results you are looking for much sooner.

Best of all therapy pays for itself, in the end, you will have more clarity and be able to begin focusing on what's important to you with fewer interferences.

More Info About My Practice

I began my career working as a teacher in a school with children who were identified as emotionally disturbed. I loved working with a team of people who got together on a daily basis in order to help provide a better future for these children. This experience was the beginning of my love for systems therapy. It was clear to me that trying to change the child alone (the traditional approach) was not going to work, that the entire system had to work together to create lasting change.
I loved my position working as a teacher but every day I wanted to be able to do more to help these families which I was unable to do with the credentials I had. This is when I decided to go back to school and get my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Since then I have had so many wonderful experiences working with couples, families, and individuals using a systems approach. I love having the ability to help others and see lasting changes in their lives.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

In today's society, we are all faced with a lot of demands. Most people juggle one if not many of the following parts of life, work, marriage, childcare, finances, aging parents and/or health issues just to name a few. This is a lot to manage and can sometimes feel overwhelming. Therapy is a way to utilize an impartial, nonjudgmental, professional, who can help find new ways of resolving the difficulties that you have not previously considered. This means that even if you have lots of support in your life, lots of friends and family, and are financially stable and happily married, you can still utilize the services of a therapist.

I believe therapy is a tool everyone can use at some point in their lives. Often times this is during a time of transition, something new in your life may bring up feelings of fear, sadness, or even anger. It is important throughout our lives to continue to seek and find meaning in whatever way makes sense to you. As we grow and change so do the people around us. Relationships are an important part of our lives, so what do you do when the person you love has a negative impact on you or when that person is no longer the person they once were? Therapy can help. Just because you seek therapy doesn't mean there is something "wrong" with you. Therapy is a tool which can be used to gain insights as well as learn new ways to cope. Having a therapist is a great tool for everyone. It doesn't have to be forever or long-term. The relationship you have with your therapist is one which you may leave when you're feeling better but know that your therapist is there for you if you ever need to come back.
