My name is Valerie Glass. I have worked as a therapist in a variety of settings for nearly 20 years. I currently hold a doctorate in marriage and family therapy and also work teaching students who are studying to become therapists. I strongly believe in the power of relationships and also am aware that most relationships can have difficult moments. I have extensive experience working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, couples' issues, relationship issues, and family issues. In addition, I specialize in LGBTQ clients and women's issues.
Clients come to therapy for many different reasons. Some clients need a space to process life changes and challenges. Other clients seek direction and accountability. I meet clients where they are and provide a non-judgmental and collaborative space. I think of therapy as a journey to healing and becoming better - whatever that means to the individual, couple, or family. My role is to really understand where clients are coming from and to support their desired direction.
I am quite humbled by my role as a therapist and the vulnerabilities I see and experience as part of this role. I project an open and honest atmosphere and respect the challenges brought to the space.

Dr Glass is great. She helped my partner and I through understanding some very difficult times. Thebeffext immediate, and the tools she gave us really set us up for self-improvement.
Dr. Glass is a very real person. She listens and responds to wherever I am at the moment. She helps me see the good and not stay focused on the negative that life throws at me. She doesn't tell me what to do only that I will make the right choice when the time is right for me. I appreciate her.
