Glenn Gray, M.S., M.Div.
Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Master of Divinity
Glenn has worked in the mental health field for 4 years providing individual therapy, family therapy, group work, and community services. He focuses on behavior concerns, anxiety, depression, identity issues, life transitions, family dynamics, and religious trauma. He works largely with adolescents and young adults. Like a lot of therapists, he tends to be eclectic with his theoretical approach but he favors Client-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Existential, and Solution-focused theories. Glenn has a particular interest to help those who feel at odds with institutionalized religion or the church.
“I believe we all have our own spirituality, whether we choose to belong to a religion or not, and we seek to find a place. Religion is a source of redemption, direction, community, and empowerment. However, when grace, justice, and individual value are missing there arises a system of abuse and judgment that shuts down a central part of the human experience.”
Glenn graduated from Mercer University in 2017 with a Masters in Counseling and a Master of Divinity. He lives with his wife, Mariah, son, Asher, and little dog, Layla. He and Mariah love running and binge-watching shows on the weekend. He is also a minister on staff at his church where he works with Youth and occasionally preaches.
Glenn is currently working towards full licensure under the supervision and direction of Dr. Bryan Jones, LPC and Angela Dean, LPC.
