Gwendolyn Young


About Me

My name is Gwendolyn Young I am honored to respond to a profile that wants me to acknowledge my Christian Faith. My journey with The Lord began during my childhood. However, during my teen and early adult years I strayed from that which I learned and knew to be right. As I look back on the many dangerous paths that I chose to take but then, I have come to realize that God did not leave me. He was there protecting me all the time! As I became older, I began to really understand the meaning of many scriptures and the importance of seeking God for direction in your life. Having done so, he has blessed me in many areas of my life. I taught Special Education for many years until the life was drained from me. I wanted to give up feeling as if I no longer had a purpose. However, God was not through with me yet. He directed me into the field of counseling. As a result, I have earned a master's degree in Professional Counseling. A master's degree in Addiction Counseling and a post-master's degree in Addiction Specialization. Today I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Addiction Specialist. I truly believe in the Power of God, but I cannot tell many of the clients that I see or have seen for fear of ----- (fill in the blank) I wanted to tell them that no problem is too big. I wanted to ask them, do you know the Lord and what he can do for you in your life. I want all of my clients to understand the term "Let Go, Let God because he is able to fit it.
