Glen Barnard is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist with a private practice in New York City. He works with adult individuals, college-age students, and couples who are facing a broad range of issues and challenges that includes anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement, relationship concerns, and adjustment to life transitions as well as those exploring their gender, and sexuality identities.
Glen also works with artists who are investigating their creative identity and seeking more freedom, motivation, and self-compassion in their artistic process.
Glen's approach to therapy is collaborative, interactive, and conversational while empowering the client to lead in their own way. When appropriate, Glen gives supportive feedback, uses humor, and reflects on themes and patterns he is witnessing when learning the narrative of his patient so they feel heard and valued.
Prior to being in private practice, Glen was a staff therapist at New York University's Student Health Center and the Tisch School of the Arts. In the past, Glen was a certified HIV pre & post-test counselor and educator, as well as an ethnographer for a National Institue of Health-funded study of queer, homeless youth coming of age in NYC.
