Gloria Bernard is a Chicago-based therapist who uses a collaborative and integrative approach to psychotherapy to facilitate trauma recovery and performance enhancement. She works to address maladaptive belief systems that subconsciously or consciously prevent clients from moving with intention and confidence toward their goals. Gloria’s clients include high-achieving women and gender-queer people, many of whom have experienced gender-based traumas. With a background in the creative arts cultivated at NYU’s Steinhardt school, and an expertise in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy, Gloria works to help clients transform their internal narratives, identify and change negative beliefs, and get "unstuck” from what sabotages their own success. Sessions with Gloria are engaging, interactive and goal-oriented.

“Therapy with Gloria has not only helped me grow, heal and change- but also held me accountable. EMDR therapy has healed me mentally, in ways I never thought possible. I am a strong believer in EMDR and the healing process that Gloria provides a safe space for.”

Existing Client

“Before working with Gloria I struggled with daily migraines for 9 months. She helped me identify the stressors in my life that triggered migraines & used EMDR to help “reprogram” my reactions. I no longer suffer from daily migraines & continue to enjoy life.”

Former Client

“I had been struggling to find a queer & poly/kink friendly therapist who could help me process things without needing to explain basic concepts to, and I found that in Gloria. ”
