Glenda is a psychologist who did both her undergraduate and her graduate work here at the University of Colorado. She has put her skills as a psychologist to use as a therapist, a teacher, a researcher, an activist, and a writer.
Glenda takes a broad view of therapy and is especially fascinated by the importance of the intersection of people and their social environments. She has conducted both clinical and research work on multicultural approaches to therapy, classism, social trauma, internalized homophobia, and religious/spiritual issues in psychotherapy. She has published books, journal articles, and chapters in all of these areas. Glenda also has extensive clinical experience with depression and trauma. She believes that healing comes in many ways, some of which have little or nothing to do with being in a counseling office.
