My life mission is to create Inner Peace, one person at a time, one couple at a time. Are you anxious or depressed? Struggling with emotional or physical infidelity? Feeling lonely, overwhelmed or undervalued in your life and relationships? Are you struggling with racial or cross-cultural issues? I've worked with all of these issues and experienced many of them myself, as a mixed-race person: African-American/Irish-Apache. There are ways to make peace with yourself while walking through our world of challenges.

Gwendolyn Evans, PhD Practice Description
Our first session will be conversational, culturally sensitive and aimed at helping you identify your goals and motivations to make changes at this time in your life. Change starts by our joint efforts in sessions, but takes work outside of sessions, too. Where appropriate, I give you handouts and small weekly assignments to facilitate your steps to change in between sessions. Journal writing is an important part of becoming conscious and remaining active toward personal growth. I am an ordained minister and I welcome clients of all spiritual and religious orientations, if spiritual issues are part of your healing needs.
