Glenda, one of Highland Park Counseling Associates, LLC’s newer psychotherapists, was raised on a farm and has practical and down to earth problem solving skills. She is often found running around her neighborhood with her large, goofy dog who thinks everyone they meet should pet him and let him lean on them. Glenda started running later in life and believes it is never too late to learn a new skill. Glenda enjoys the outdoors, art shows and finds dabbling in art fun and relaxing. She is trained as a Clinical Social Worker and relates counseling to a jigsaw puzzle where you start fitting together common colors, sizes and shapes to see the whole picture. Glenda applies this to how she works with clients. She enjoys working with adolescents and mature adults and everyone in between. Glenda feels her younger clients keep her current on the hip trends and remind her how old she really is and that her older clients offer sage advice and make her feel young. Glenda provided mental health services to adolescent (14+) and adult clients. She is the Case Manager for the Adolescent Family DBT Program at HPCA.
