Unfortunately I was unable to continue my therapy due to funds but I’m so glad to had the chance to have Laura for as long as I did. She is down to earth and a caring person. She’s helped me a lot. And since we haven’t gotten to speak I want her to know that I’m doing ok thanks to her!

Laura Glenn has been Fantastic so far. As a veteran I struggle to find quality therapy. Always an overload on information or misinformation. I am really just getting started on this journey to become the best version of me. After just the 1st 2 sessions I can already see changes starting. Truly greatfull

Laura is helping me with struggles from a past marriage and is helping find better ways to cope with life. Laura listens very well and gives examples that help me understand certain circumstances. She makes homework to help get things from my mind to paper.

Laura has been such a blessing at an extremely difficult time in my life! She has been so helpful and supportive in my struggle with grief from multiple experiences over the past almost 10 years--death of my mom, loss of faith, miscarriage, and most recently, divorce. I'm in a much better place mentally and emotionally than I was when I started with her a few months ago. I know I have a long way to go, but she's given me some great tools to use on my journey!

Laura has been a huge help! She takes her time and does the best she can to make plans to help my mother Susan who is receiving therapy from her. We really appreciate all the work and Susan cannot say enough good things about her.
