Common questions Dr. Glick asks, “What makes life meaningful for you?" and "Are you willing to tolerate discomfort in order to live a meaningful life?".

Dr. Glick enjoys helping clients work through these questions to identify what, if anything, they want to change. She then provides the techniques, skills, learning opportunities, and support to help make the changes.

She completed her internship at Tewksbury State Hospital and her postdoctoral training at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates (Clinical) and VA Boston National Center for PTSD (Research).

Message to clients

Many people view therapy as a place to go to FEEL better. My first aim is to help you LIVE better–which will likely enable you to feel more fulfilled.

Clients describe me as a compassionate, caring, and challenging provider.

My approach combines my knowledge of psychological theories and techniques with my energetic and interactive style. Working together, we will identify the ways in which your unproductive thoughts, emotional, and behavioral patterns prevent you from living a life consistent with your values and from achieving your goals.

The depth of my training enables me to treat a wide range of clientele with diverse presenting concerns. I have particular expertise working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions, procrastination, relationship and communication difficulties, identity development/self-esteem, and identification of personal values. I have also published on these topics.

Let’s discuss how I can be of help to you.
