What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a person who sees through a lens of no judgement, I understand that each individual has their own unique concerns and needs that need to be expressed, heard, and validated.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Glenda Martinez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. Glenda is certified as an Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC) and holds a certificate for Nutrition and Holistic Health. She has a compassion for helping others and provides individualized assessments and treatment plans to guide the therapy process for adults, including family therapy sessions per request. Glenda specializes in depressive disorders (SAD, major depression, and depression due to medical conditions); anxiety disorders (general anxiety, separation anxiety, social anxiety) and panic disorder; mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder); substance use disorders (alcohol and drug use); post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and much more. Glenda completed her Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) at Saginaw Valley University and her Master of Social Work (MSW) at Eastern University with Honors. She has great interest in creative arts and completed her Associate of Arts degree with the honor of being selected for the Presidents List throughout her semesters. Glenda utilizes an integrative, strength-based, and client-centered approach while incorporating mindfulness, holistic principles, and creativity. She enjoys including creative outlets of art, creative writing, and physical wellness when a client is interested in doing so. With years of experience in substance use recovery, recovery focus is also an area of expertise. Glenda has many years of experience with diverse populations and settings. This has allowed her to gather many tools to empower individuals in navigating through any challenges throughout their life journey. Additional approaches implemented by Glenda that support change while providing a safe place for healing are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, solution focused, experiential therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, existential, and humanistic therapy. Although Glenda has a variety of treatment models, she believes working as a collaborative team creates a solid professional and therapeutic relationship that guides the sessions to successful outcomes and determines what is the best approach for each individual. She believes that setting goals for your tailored needs and concerns are just as equally important which are established by a customized treatment plan. She will guide you through this therapeutic process to clarify goals and begin the journey of wellness in treatment. As each unique individual travels their path, life barriers, hurdles, life changes, adjustments, and stresses can occur that can cause a lot of distress toward whole well-being. You are not alone. It takes great courage to reach out for help and Glenda will provide a non-judgmental, safe, confidential, calming environment to build self-awareness, techniques, and personal growth from these life challenges. If you are ready to take this step, Glenda looks forward to meeting you.
