Gwen Borcyk, LCSW
About Gwen Borcyk
I am a licensed psychotherapist specializing in individual, Couples and Family Therapy, and maintain a Private Practice in Wilmington, NC., along with providing on-line therapy to individuals overseas.
My clients tell me that it's clear I, "don't just care about me and my treatment, but also about my life in general and me as a person". They say that I "don't bullshit" and "tell it like it is" from a therapeutic and compassionate but real and goal reaching kind of place. It's important to me to be real - to use humor - to share helpful anecdotes and to remind you that you are not alone and not quite as uniquely damaged as you might think.
As your therapist I promise to not gloss things over or tell you what I think you want to hear. Instead I will cut through all the bullshit and help you gain some clarity on the issues you are dealing with in your life. I will challenge you and encourage you over and over to be willing to by uncomfortable for just a bit, so that you can find your voice, stand up for yourself against others (even your family), find your happiness and most importantly to stop just striving to be a survivor, but instead to fight harder to be a warrior! Not just any warrior though, to be YOUR warrior.
