Glaiza Gatdula


About Me

I am a strengths-based therapist who values meeting my clients where they are at with their life challenges. I believe that every person has their innate strengths. These strengths are their tools to get through difficult life circumstances. My work is to help my clients create awareness of these strengths and guide them in using these as tools to improve their quality of life.

I have worked with children and families in a variety of settings since 2010. I also have worked with families in diverse cultural backgrounds such as military families, minority groups, immigrants and refugees. Most of my work focuses on helping clients find their strengths and use them to manage life stressors, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, trauma, and acculturation.

I use strengths-based strategies, mindfulness-based, CBT, gestalt approach (here and now), psychotherapy, client-centered, and emotion-focused approach with clients. This combination of approach allows me to help clients develop healthy coping skills, self-discovery, awakening, and appreciate the gift of the present moment.

Written on Dec 22, 2020 after therapy with Glaiza for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, grief, and self esteem

Glaiza is very compassionate and easy to talk to. She puts time into knowing me and offering interventions to help with anxiety and depression. I appreciate that she reaches out when she hasn’t heard from me in a while.

Work with me!
