Postdoctoral Fellow, Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Nofar Glisko understands that sometimes stressors overwhelm our capacity to live meaningful and fulfilling lives. Through her clinical work, Dr. Glisko has found that many individuals know what they must do to succeed yet they often face challenges making productive use of this knowledge because of negative self-beliefs and difficulties managing emotions. She believes the therapeutic relationship can provide clients with a safe and supportive space to begin to resolve these contradictions. Her psychodynamic background has instilled in her the importance of considering a person’s past and the underlying factors contributing to obstacles. She believes the client’s history holds valuable insights into their potential for healing and personal growth. She strives to help them uncover hidden strengths and resources which, combined with powerful emotion management tools, can pave the way toward self-discovery and fulfillment.
Dr. Glisko earned her PsyD in clinical psychology from Adler University in Chicago, IL. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at The Behavioral Wellness Center at Girard, a leading psychiatric inpatient/outpatient center in Philadelphia, where she gained invaluable experience working with individuals facing severe and persistent mental illness. Previously, Dr. Glisko worked in addiction rehabilitation facilities with individuals who have endured repeated traumatic events since childhood. These experiences influenced her to research the connection between emotional intelligence and PTSD. Through her research she learned the important role emotional awareness plays in developing a sense of self. Dr. Glisko strives to use this information to contribute to growing preventative mental health care research, by introducing tools that can be implemented to nurture the development of emotional intelligence.
