Get to Know Gloria Z

Therapist | LCSW

I have found it is best to take an eclectic approach to therapy. I believe that developing a positive relationship with clients is the most important piece of the therapeutic puzzle. Beyond that, it is necessary for the client to feel that they are able to drive treatment where they need it to go. I view my job as a therapist as the navigation system which provides options for interventions that will get you to where you want to be.

My Professional Background

When I began my career in the helping field, I started working with children with developmental disabilities in a school setting, and then moved to a residential placement for adults with developmental disabilities. During my masters program, I started working more with children and families impacted by mental health and found my passion. I have since had experience in community-based, residential, healthcare, school, and outpatient clinic settings.

Education, Training, and Certifications

  • Bachelor of Arts from the State University of NY College at Brockport
  • Masters Degree in Social Work from the Greater Rochester Collaborative Program between Nazareth College and SUNY Brockport

Fun Facts

I am crafty mom of 2. Often during sessions, I will color, crochet, or engage in other activities to keep my hands busy so that my brain can listen! My family and I are starting our own small hobby farm! I love animals and plants as much as I love people.
