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!

Mr. Glass is very kind and always listens and tries to understand. He always shares resources at the end of a session that you can use to help when you aren’t speaking with him.
