Ms. Gyden assists people in understanding and navigating the complexities of feelings and relationships. She works with people experiencing unhealthy and/or difficult relationships with themselves, romantic partners, family members, and peers.
Although she is experienced in all modalities (individual, couples, and families), she specializes in couple and family therapy, more specifically, infidelity, communication, and connection. She is effective in assisting couples and families create new meaning and tradition after experiencing an emotional disruption. Additionally, I assist individuals struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, grief/loss, and boundary setting.
Her systemic approach to therapy allows her to highlight how one interacts and responds to themselves and the world around them. Ms. Gyden uses a therapy style that puts the client in the expert seat while she supports with her utilization of multiple postmodern therapy techniques.
The cornerstones of her practice are authenticity and empathy. She will work hard to build and maintain a healthy therapeutic relationship centered around strengths building and goal achievement.
