Professional statement

Dr. Ruth Glass is a licensed psychologist working with California and New York-based adults across the lifespan. She specializes in treating anxiety disorders as well as perinatal mood disorders. At the same time, Dr. Glass treats individuals with a broad range of issues as well, such as depression, ADHD, OCD, trauma, anger, relationship issues, and work stress. Common topics addressed in therapy with Dr. Glass include spiraling worries or depressive thoughts, panic attacks, fears about health or social scrutiny, low self-esteem, trouble sleeping, trouble focusing and getting things done, feeling that one is not cut out to be a parent, adjustment to retirement, grief, processing traumatic events, trouble communicating with others, and much more.

Dr. Glass practices from a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT). She uses CBT in a flexible way to tailor it to the needs of the client, and works with the client to find evidence based approaches that feel effective for them. Common components of therapy include noticing unhelpful or distorted thinking patterns and updating them to be more helpful and balanced, problem-solving, increasing pleasurable and meaningful experiences, exposure therapy for anxiety, and mindfulness. There is also a strong emphasis on working together to realistically build a foundation of healthy sleep habits, eating well, and exercise. Making changes is very hard, and therapy with Dr. Glass is thus a place in which you acquire a coach who is rooting for you, is there to problem-solve with you, and believes in your ability to meet your goals.

Dr. Glass provides teletherapy for adults in both California and New York. Her physical office is located in Beverly Hills. Easy street parking is available, as are multiple paid lots.
