Helping People Live Better Lives

 

"'She did not talk to people as if they were strange hard shells she had to crack open to get inside.  She talked as if she were already in the shell.  In their very shell.'  Marita Bonner(1926)   Glenn - I know the gender is wrong but this quote makes me think of you.  You bring such compassion and empathy to the work we do no matter how hard it sometimes gets."

- Former Clinical Supervisor

Working with the Causes vs. the Symptoms

I help my clients identify and address the root causes of their challenges as opposed to focussing on just their symptoms.  By addressing the causes of the problems we create real change and eliminate any uncomfortable symptoms they have permanently as opposed to finding a band-aid solution.

"My time with Glenn has been invaluable, priceless. He helped me regain my life. By digging deep and getting to the root of the problem, and subsequently attacking the causes of my anxiety, Glenn rescued me from the pit of depression." -Mark V.

Welcome to my website

I have created this site to provide you with information about me and my psychotherapy practice. Choosing the right therapist for you is a very personal choice. I have written on a multitude of topics on the different pages for you to read. My goal is to give you a good feel for who I am and how I work. Feel free to read the ones that feel most relevant for you. If you feel like what I say resonates with you and is what your looking for, the next step will be to set up your free initial consultation.

When people ask me what I specialize in as a therapist I say I specialize in relationships. In my work with individuals and couples my focus is on how we relate to each other, to ourselves, to our anxiety, our trauma, our addictions, our anger, etc. How we treat ourselves and those around us is a vital part of how we cope with many of the challenges that we face. The more we treat others and ourselves with compassion, kindness, dignity, and respect the easier it is to discover greater understanding of our challenges and how to overcome them. Please be sure to read the My Views page to gain a greater understanding of how I view my clients and my work.

Clients who work with me get:

  • Unconditional acceptance for wherever they are in their process
  • A compassionate support structure to help them through their life shifts
  • An attentive ear to listening to them
  • Insightful perspectives to help them learn about themselves as they change and grow
  • Focused direction keeping them on course when they're feeling adrift and confused
  • The benefits of over 20 years experience in helping others improve their lives

Its Okay to Ask For Help;  Seeing a Therapist Does Not Mean You Are Crazy

Most times we can work through our problems on our own just fine.  Sometimes, however, we can be too wrapped up in a problem to see a way out of it.  Other times we have never had the opportunity to learn certain skills or information that we need to overcome our challenges.  By engaging with a trained and well skilled counselor we are able to get an impartial, outside perspective in a setting that is safe and confidential.  We can also take advantage of the counselor's training and experience to gain more knowledge and skills so that we can reach our goal.

 

"I can’t think of a single person who makes me feel more accepted. You never make me feel like I am thinking about it wrong. The unconditionality just gets me in my core!" -Client

 

I am committed to treating my clients with respect, in a compassionate, accepting environment where their needs and concerns are important.  Here's what a few of my clients had to say.

I welcome & accept all people regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, orientation or lifestyle.
