Gloria Tovar, LCPC, NCC


Everyone deserves to be heard and validated. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is fostered through empathy and a willingness to see other perspectives. I also believe that everyone deserves to receive services in their native language. I am fluent in Spanish and able to conduct therapy services in both Spanish and English.

I completed my Master of Arts at Northwestern University. I strive to be as open as possible so that I can help others see their own strength. I am passionate about working one on one and with couples. While being open to using many approaches to counseling I encourage the use of mindfulness practices and the development of coping skills. One of the things I value the most is diversity and I embrace working with a range of people.

I have experience working with diverse populations in a variety of settings. Having worked with children on the autism spectrum in both home and school settings gave me knowledge in how different settings can play a role in behavior. I also have experience working with adolescents and adults in a residential setting that was focused in DBT. I have worked as an advocate for children and families who are victims or witnesses to violence and abuse. These experiences have given me a unique insight into crisis and trauma. Most recently working in private practice has given me the opportunity to build longer therapeutic relationships with the people I work with and see the growth throughout their journeys. I look forward to being a part of your team and collaborate with you towards your personal growth!
