Glenda is extremely patient and a great listener. She shares some of her own experiences to make me feel like what I’m feeling is normal and this is just a phase that I’m going through. She gives me courage and makes me believe the power to change is within me.

This is the first time I have tried online counseling and I could not have asked for a better counselor than Glenda. She responds in a timely manner, is very supportive, empathetic, and asks very good questions. She is also a very good listener and helps me develop concrete plans to address my issues. I would highly recommend her!

Glenda Baez proved to be very attentive, careful and tried to find out as many details as possible to better understand how to help me. All her questions and suggestions have been timely and relevant. I highly recommend Glenda.

Written by V.E. on Dec 01, 2017 after counseling with Glenda for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and grief

I am amazed that BetterHelp was able to match me with such helpful counselor on the first try. I did not have such luck with traditional therapy. Glenda is awesome! She is kind, respectful, smart, resourceful, and understanding. She remembers small details and stays focused even when I drift away. She is oriented towards solving the problem, not mulling over it for an indefinite time. Thank you Glenda, all the best to you!

Glenda is very professional, extremely patient, and kind. She has a caring manner about her and she was always keeping things on the positive side and giving constructive advice. I'm thankful for the time I had to talk with her while subscribed, but as life changes sometimes we have to change with it, so for now it's see you later. Hopefully I can return and sign up with her again. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a non-judgmental and safe space to bare your soul.

Written by S.A on Apr 24, 2016 after counseling with Glenda for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, sleeping, self esteem, career, and depression

Glenda is, in one word, AWESOME. I have only been working with her for a few weeks now, but in that short time, she has helped me so much. She is a wonderful, patient listener, and gives very constructive advice and inspiration for how to solve life's problems and roadblocks. When I don't always have a chance to respond right away, or forget, she makes sure to message me reminders, or ask about how I am doing. You can tell that Glenda sincerely cares about you, whatever your situation, and in helping you become a better version of yourself. She is worth every cent of the bi-weekly fee, and if you need someone to give you sound advice, inspire you, or just provide a listening ear, I highly recommend working with Glenda. Thank you Glenda, for all you do!

Glenda is definitely the most supportive and kind (yet addressing real issues without the fluff) therapist I have yet to encounter. She directly addresses each issue you bring to her without skipping over any detail you have provided. I find myself feeling optimistic each time she responds to me with her recommendation or questions about my situation. I will stick with her as long as I am a client on this site, for sure.

Glenda was great, very calming and supportive. Asking good questions, encouraging you to share, but with out over leading. Truly felt better after our interactions.
