About Me

Hello, I’m Glenda Ferris and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the states of Ohio
and South Carolina. I have 30 years of experience assisting clients/patients develop problem
solving skills to improve their lives. I have extensive experience in the treatment of depressive
disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety related issues. My experience of hospital
and hospice work has increased my knowledge and understanding of medical illness and end of
life issues.
I have my MSW from The Ohio State University with a concentration in Mental Health. I have
worked in the areas of case management, home based therapy, hospice services, and
outpatient therapy.
I have utilized various therapeutic modalities throughout my 30 years including Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Trauma Informed Therapy. My
approach is primarily Client-Centered and I provide a compassionate style while assisting clients
in identifying their personal strengths to set and reach realistic goals.
I look forward to assisting you on this path to improving your health and wellness!

Glenda helped me feel understood and we connected right off. I would recommend her to anyone that is trying to process life from the now. While we discuss past experiences, she keeps me focused on the future. I appreciate her approach and her willingness to listen, rein me back in and come up with solutions.

I really appreciate what you have done for me. If it wasn't for your little push I really don't think that I would have had the courage to say yes I need help.
