I am Dr. Glenna.
I’m a licensed Clinical Social worker and for as long as I can remember I’ve been invested in helping people! I believe that no matter your station in life, what you’ve gone through or what you’re going through, the key to living an amazing life is built on a foundation of self awareness and understanding. And it’s my job to help you find it!
My mantra is “Therapy is a lifestyle!” This means making a consistent effort to focus on your mental health before it becomes mental illness. As we all know, any meaningful change requires a lifestyle shift. Just as athletes, for example, must keep their bodies fit and able to perform under their daily routines, or risk major injury, so must we provide ourselves with the tools and resources to, not just hold up, but thrive under and despite the stresses and pressures that may affect our everyday lives.
As a mental health therapist with close to two decades of experience and education, I help my clients do just that.
This is truly my life’s work. I went from being a little girl, always helping others and defending those who couldn’t defend themselves, to being a Doctor of Social Work, still committed to helping people become their best selves. Those who know me best say I’ve been a therapist my whole life, I just decided to get the proper credentials. And I agree! I still dedicate myself to others by creating collaborative relationships with my clients, turning clinical knowledge into practical advice and helping my clients work toward solutions with empathy, kindness and patience. I am trained to treat individuals and couples with issues ranging from a wide variety of personal struggles to serious mental health challenges. I also specialize in treating anxiety based disorders, including generalized and social anxiety, as well as stress management.
When it comes to your mental health, I make no compromise. I understand that stress and anxiety can breed chaos, confusion, conflict and most importantly can strip you of the joy of living. My role in the mental health community is to address these issues with evidence based, client centered, easy to implement restorative practices. As such, I offer services specifically designed to help you unpack your fears, anxieties and confusion, connect the dots, and gain the clarity needed to take care of your most valuable resource- you!
Recently, I have expanded my services to include public speaking, small group training and specialized content curation. My goal in doing so is to transfer the knowledge gained through education and experience into practical tips for self-improvement to wider audiences. My hope is for everyone I encounter to walk away knowing two things: One, there is too much information in the world for anyone to have to struggle, and two, everyone has the capacity to experience amazing change, with the right tools and support.
What I know for sure is that my life’s journey is steadfastly connected to helping others pursue theirs, in the happiest and healthiest way possible. I believe that no matter what your obstacles, you have the power to change your life. My commitment to you is to be there every step of the way.
