Gwendolyn L. Bohn
MT, LCSW, RYT 200
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience supporting children, adolescents, and adults to reach their personal goals and full potential across many aspects of their lives.
I specialize in anxiety, depression and mood disorders, ADHD/ADD, life transitions and adjustments, stress management, behavior management, and parenting education and consultation. I often utilize behavior modification, solution-focused interventions, cognitive behavioral strategies, and mindfulness techniques. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and enjoy building tenets of this practice into my sessions when relevant.
I begin therapy by attempting to build a strong rapport with my clients, focusing on strengths and offering unconditional positive regard. I consider how clients' unique backgrounds shape their strengths, challenges and behaviors, and strive to match this information with effective treatment strategies. I routinely work with parents on ways they can support their children, and often coordinate care with clients’ other practitioners.
Education & Past Experience
I attended the University of Virginia and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology degree and a Master of Teaching degree in 2000. In 2002, I earned a Master of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have worked extensively in school, community, and private practice settings over the course of my career. After recognizing the physical and emotional benefits of practicing yoga for over a decade, I undertook an extensive course of study to become a certified yoga teacher in 2020.
In my free time when not practicing yoga, I can be found jogging on the treadmill, kayaking on the Swift Creek Reservoir, sticking my nose in a good book, or trying new restaurants with friends and family. I grew up in the West End and now enjoy living with my husband and twin teenagers in Midlothian. I love my job and am passionate about helping others. I'm a proud volunteer with the Virginia Medical Reserve Corps, providing support as needed for medical emergencies.
