I have had the pleasure of working with people who strive to make positive changes in their lives for over 14 years. I believe that in every person is the will and the ability needed to make this change. We all experience trauma or pain that at some point can stifle this will and ability. My role is to assist clients so that their inner self can rise back to the surface and begin to live the healthy fulfilled life that we all seek. My goal is not to be the change but facilitate the process so each client can be the change themselves.
I started my career working with children at a summer camp for low-income families in a major urban area. That job lead to certification in teaching where I used my professional degree to connect children and their families with meaningful programs to inspire and motivate youth to a better future. My work with children and their families led me to graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin where I obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work, ultimately gaining a Clinical License to practice Social Work. My professional experiences in Social Work include Veterans of all ages and their families. The majority of my work is centered around addiction counseling, trauma focused care, and assisting clients with life circumstances such as changing family roles, dealing with health problems, grief/loss, and family problems.
The hallmarks of my approach are respecting a clients right to self-determination and starting where the client is. In other words, I leave pre-conceived notions on how to deal with a situation at the door and first attempt to see the situation through the eyes of the client. As cliché as it might sound, I view the client as the captain and myself as the navigator. I will help you to see the path but you will be the one to walk it with me by your side.

Cory Glasgow has been right on with his insightful words to encourage me through a rough patch. I signed up for this site after settling down (and getting electricity) from Hurricane Harvey. I am one of the lucky ones that have a home to sleep in, however, living in a town that is devastated beyond measure, has me considering my life before and after. I am currently still in sessions, dealing with the early stages of my fears and personal stuff, but can already see the improvement In dealing with decisions from Cory's helpful encouraging words and thought provoking questions. I highly recommend this site for help if you need and appreciate Cory for being there...right when I needed. Thank you.
I liked Cory from the very beginning. He has been right on about my issues.
I must admit that I was skeptical about this site being able to match me with a counselor that would understand where I was coming from. I can definitely say they did match me with Mr. Glasgow and he has been a tremendous help in a very hard time of my life. He was very easy to speak with and helped me work through things in a laid-back professional way.
Chatting with Cory Glasgow was an easy process. His responses were timely, engaging and far more insightful than I expected from an online service. I was leery and a bit cynical about this process coming into it, but Cory's mix of (let's call it) "casual professionalism" put me at ease right off the bat.
Cory has an easy dialogue, a deep perspective, and an adaptability the lends himself well to a vast scope of issues. He is engaged in the problems shared with him and in this persons experience has served as an excellent bouncing board, as a second set of eyes; shedding new light on old problems. Change comes from within, but the catalyst can come from somewhere else altogether.
Cory has helped me through one of the hardest times of my life. His insight and attention to detail, ability to re-focus me has made a positive difference in my life.
Cory has been pretty wonderful. I don't feel like he uses many of the "tricks of the trade" that I feared a counselor would. He really seemed to have heard my concerns and goals, and I don't feel manipulated or judged. He comes across as very understanding and patient, even when I think I'm being difficult. He has a great sense of humor and a likable personality, but more than that he seems to really want to help and have the tools to accomplish that goal. I highly recommend him to anyone that is wary of "shrinky" behavior or attitudes.
