About me

It’s awesome that you’ve reached out to BetterHelp. Change takes courage! I am a mental health therapist with a Master’s in counseling and have over 20 years of experience as a counselor. Much of that time has been spent working with folks addressing substance use disorder and accompanying issues such as HCV, esteem, trauma, loss, anxiety and depression. Many times, relationship and identity problems are also present and addressed. My approach is often based, in part, on the existentialistic philosophy of assisting others in finding their purpose and authentic self. This generally occurs through working on personal growth based on self-honesty and responsibility. The transformation is possible through the application of cognitive behavior therapy, that empowers them to be congruent in their thinking and actions. Challenging perceptions and hurtful thoughts are also vital. By focusing on their strengths, coping strategies are offered to assist them in managing their symptoms. My life experiences have included recovering and living with significant, chronic health challenges. My world view has further been enhanced by living abroad and working with various populations. I look forward to building a working relationship with you that is both safe and without judgement. Please contact me so I may assist you on your journey of change!

Russel is great and is very understanding. He’s helped me set healthy boundaries and stop over thinking and worrying and much more.

If you’ve been through several therapists you struggled to connect with, I would recommend a talk with Russell. He’s professional, but doesn’t have a personality that’s likely to make you uncomfortable, IME. He’s a good person whom I believe has genuine interest in the wellbeing of his clients.

Russell is a fantastic therapist. He is very professional and is very thorough. As a skeptic to therapy, I can say that my sessions have been productive and I have found therapy to be a tool to help process the stressors that can arise in day to day life.

On a scale of 1-to-5-star rating (5 being the highest), I'd give my Therapist William (Russell) Glass a Six! This has been both a rewarding and healing process for me and judgement free.
