Claudia Glassman, LMFT, RPT-S

My journey towards becoming a therapist was not very straightforward, but it seemed that I kept finding myself moving back towards this field. Part of what I love about what I do is that I believe that all of us have a story to tell, and I am so grateful for all the clients that are willing to share their stories with me. I am honored that clients choose me in their times of struggle, and I love being able to make a difference in their lives.

I decided to become a supervisor because I believe that seasoned therapists should be involved in supporting the next generation of therapists. My supervisors shaped me as a therapist and offered me the encouragement and guidance I needed as a new clinician. They not only helped me discover myself as a therapist but also provided support when I felt overwhelmed as a newbie in this field. Providing supervision allows me to do this for others. My goal is to provide a nurturing environment where your clinical skills are nurtured and challenged.

My hope for new professionals it that they feel supported as they learn, grow, and develop into the therapists that they want to be. I remember feeling overwhelmed when I first began on this career path, and it was comforting to know that I was not alone on the journey. I hope that, through the support and guidance they receive, new professionals grow into confident therapists who are serving their clients in a way that fosters their growth and healing.
