We are placed here on this Earth to make things better than they were before. The same is true with individuals, particularly those who have identified personal and emotional struggles. Helping to make people’s lives better has been the mission of Dr. Marshaun Glover since he entered college. Dr. Glover earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in psychology with a specialization in clinical psychology from Virginia Tech. For the last 11 years, he has been working in the field of clinical psychology. After completing his degrees, he sought more specialized work in the areas of child and adolescent mental health. He earned prestigious Post-Doctoral Fellowships at Harvard University at the Cambridge Health Alliance. After providing care to the community, he then began working as a private practitioner in a group for nearly 2 years. He is now a clinical psychologist in private practice in downtown Boston. With over 11 years in experience in the field of mental health, the conversation about how to help people adjust their beliefs and adapt to the perceptions of the pressures they experience in their daily lives have been paramount to his clinical work.
