My name is Glynn Vincent. I was born in Orlando. I love living in this city and have loved raising my family here.
For the last 15 years I have worked as an analyst with the U.S. Army. I have immense respect for the Veteran community. I have been a professional "noticer" - managing funds and timelines - helping improve systems and structure . But, over the last years, I felt a heart-calling to shift towards the mental health counseling field/profession. I have my MS in Clinical, Mental Health Counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic (PBA) University with concentration in Trauma/Crisis Intervention.
I provide an inviting therapeutic space allowing clients to be safe and brave.
I am trained to care for clients who present with a variety of mental health symptoms or personal issues/concerns. Together we can explore suitable interventions and aim at client goals that allow for healthy processing and movement towards healing. We can explore where you might be stuck and where you might like to grow or make shifts. We can re-shape hope for right now and the future.
In my coursework and personal curiosities, I find that I lean towards several counseling theories but have openness to find accommodating approaches or tools to support the needs of my clients. I have taken time to learn and implement therapeutic approaches that aim towards wholeness and integration, not perfection. My personal lens is Person-Centered Therapy (Rogerian) and I use Interpersonal Neurobiology (Dr. Dan Siegel), Gestalt techniques (Wholeness/Here & Now), Jungian Psychoanalytic therapy/concepts and Mindfulness-Based CBT (MBCT). I am also incorporating Trauma-Focused Hypnotherapy interventions in late Spring 2024.
I have been a student of the Enneagram and Meyer Briggs personality tools for several years. For those interested, we can explore the helpful language these tools can offer for one’s self-awareness and health while shaping capacity for grace towards others. I am also a certified yoga instructor and appreciate the value in noticing the mind-health-body connection - what our bodies might have to say about our stories.
Your presence matters here on planet Earth. There is tremendous value in human connection, and we were not meant to do life all alone. We need community. There is also value in spending time with someone who is trained well to listen, who is curious, not critical, and who asks helpful questions without accusation. Being willing to show up to a counseling room with another human is 80% of the challenge and I want to be with you in that process. This can be a journey of exploring yourself - your mind, your heart, your spirit, and your strength.
Fun Facts: I love being a mom and wife. Our family loves concerts - all kinds of music. I love being silly, trying new foods, singing, playing the piano, creative writing, and practicing yoga. I also love houseplants… maybe too much. I am involved in my local church and support other agencies caring for those in need in our community.
I have a story too. There are some scars and that is ok. There have been dark days and there can be brighter ones. New intentions can be set, and movement can start towards healing, through pain, through trauma. I am grateful for every breath and I am glad you are here. The journey of healing does not mean we learn to ignore what hurts, or pretend we are not stuck, it includes naming where we are. and exploring who we are in our story. We can turn the next page together.
