Gwen Carden, M.S.
Client Outreach Coordinator and Marketing Director
Gwen has a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Nova Southeastern University and applies her experience in the field to help prospective clients feel heard, cared for and informed. In 2008, she was certified in neurofeedback and co-founded a neurofeedback practice in Stuart, Florida after hearing from many people that conventional therapy alone didn’t help enough. From early 2013 to late 2014 she served as director of neurofeedback for a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
Her earlier career was in journalism and public relations, which provided her with skills she needed to serve as the Center’s marketing director.
Gwen’s extensive writing background enabled her to assist Mike Cohen, the Center’s director, in creating his book Neurofeedback 101. Written for both the layperson and health professional, the book filled a gap in the field by providing detailed, yet easy-to-read information about neurofeedback and its benefits to the challenged brain. This book, an Amazon best seller, has become one of the leading books in the field of neurofeedback and is used widely by clinical providers throughout the world.
Gwen’s training in mental health counseling makes her role of client outreach ideal. In addition to actively listening to prospective clients’ mental health challenges as they navigate the toughest of times, she takes as long as necessary to answer questions, explain our services and provide them with the support they need when considering trying neurofeedback.
“People have a lot of questions about what our technology is and what it can do for them, so my challenge it to make sure they get answers that are easy to understand and make sense,” she said.
For our website, Gwen has compiled one of the richest collections of client stories about neurofeedback and related services found anywhere on the web, detailing how neurofeedback helped change their lives.
“Sometimes I get goose bumps hearing about the drastic improvements in people’s lives after working with us,” she said. “It’s wonderful to be part of doing something that truly makes a difference.”
For fun Gwen enjoys dressing up for ballroom dancing, favoring the waltz, dressing down for dancing to classical rock and current pop music. She lap-swims daily unless the temperature drops below 40 degrees (“Not even neurofeedback can get me in the water at that point,” she says).
