My Gmail Account was Stolen and taken over!!!!

So my email mstreetphoto[put at-character here]gmail.com was stolen and i don’t know how to get it back. I have opened that account about a month or 2 ago for my new business. And I haven’t used it since. Never gave my password to anyone, and it was very crazy password. I am positive no one would have figured this one out. Anyway, i was expecting an email from my new client, and next thing you know I cant log in into my account. So I figured I forgot the password and tried to reset it. The security question was changed and so is the email for the secondary. I have looked everywhere to find a number or email address for google, someone that can help, but only to find 3hrs later that I can’t find any one that. I have a Mac and I did run it for all the spywares and came back clean from everything. I don’t know how or why someone took that over, but I HAVE to get it back. This is my living we talking about; this person can ruin my reputation, and could end up very bad for me. If you can help me in any way, please do....
Thank you very much.

And immediately change your password recovery address on any service that might send a password reminder to your hacked address.
