Yvonne Glass

Dr. Yvonne Glass, PHD, LPCC-S

Executive Dean of the Seminary; Associate Professor of Counseling

Dr. Yvonne Glass holds her doctorate from Kent State University in Counselor Education and Supervision. She brings to the position over 15 years of clinical experience in various settings, including working within a school system, private practice, and professional advocacy. Her passions include facilitating the incorporation of faith into the counseling experience. Her studies examine how religiosity positively impacts the daily stressors of life. Through various workshops for clergy, laypersons, paraprofessionals, and professionals, she has been a voice for the practice of effective, clinical, mental health counseling.

Dr. Glass desires to see multiple agencies come together to collaborate providing the best possible care for clients. To assist in this desire, she has collaborated with different agencies including law enforcement, school administration, educators, medical professionals, and social service agencies. It is her goal to see students prepared for the conversation of how mental health is a vital key in the success of our society. She has experience in counseling children and adolescents, marriage counseling, case conceptualization, supervision, ethics, multicultural counseling, group counseling, diagnosis, and integrating spirituality into the counseling process.

Relationships are very significant and Dr. Glass values them greatly. In addition to the one she has with the Lord, she cherishes time with her husband, four children, and extended family, the church. She serves alongside her husband at a local church and within a larger fellowship of churches.
