Team of Licensed and Master's level Therapists
LEAD: Glyndora Condon, M.S. M.F.T, L.P.C. CTMH, CCTP
Heal and Hope Counseling Services was inspired when Glyndora Condon struggled through divorce and with anxiety yet found peace and strength when she attended a Divorce Recovery Group class in church; and when she received counsel from a Christian counselor.
She learned that one's perspectives and negative self talk could be changed , and that one would then be able to heal.Then One has to focus on the Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, and Cognitive aspects, to find a balance. With this knowledge then she was able to navigate through trauma, divorce, a blended family, special needs children and grandchildren; also the death of her father and soon afterwards-the learning that her mother suffered with Parkinson's Disease. Further, she experienced the empty nest; while continuing her education so as to be abreast of the latest updates in counseling.
Glyndora Condon, M.S. M.F.T, L.P.C.; is listed in the National Collegiate Awards; received highest honors in three college institutions, honored as Magna Cume Laude, an Adult Scholar, and Psy-chi Award, the National Dean’s List, and the National President’s List; and has worked as a business woman, an assistant of nursing, a Director of Activities, as well as; has provided exercise and nutrition instruction for over 17 years. Glyndora views art and music as important tools of treatment. She holds over 50 professional certificates regarding parenting, children, mental health, trauma, domestic violence, dissociative disorders, abnormal psychology issues, marriage, family, and other specialties. She has provided expert testimony in courts for her clients. These issues focused on parenting, autism, and domestic violence.
In addition she is married with 2 children after 6 surgeries, has two step sons (both veterans; and with one who has Autism), was a foster mother of special needs children and adults; has 10 grandchildren as of 2020, with one recovering from a major car accident and who is partially paralyzed. Another grandchild has Autism and Cerebral palsy. Glyndora began her journey into counseling in 1985 and incorporates all of her creative skills to individualize treatment with an eclectic approach for her clients. Glyndora's insight and empathy aids her to provide effective therapy. She continues her education annually to keep abreast of the latest treatments. With 17 years of nutrition and exercise instruction, she is able to help her clients to maximize their cognitive and physical health.
Glyndora chose to reach up and outward to provide guidance and support to others who are walking the journey of life. She blends her Christian faith, her strong empathy capacity, her leadership skills, her knowledge and wisdom, and her creative abilities with empirically tested tools to help others who are hurting, lost, or angry. She wants to give back what was provided to her. At this juncture of her life, she finds a grave need in her own home-town for counselors. She therefore is here instead of working in a metropolitan, higher paying areas. She is here for YOU.
