Psychotherapist and founder of Holistic Wellness Practice, Gleyce (pronounced glay-see) Almeida-Farrell draws from evidence-based techniques to help clients find more balance, peace, and fulfillment in their lives. With a direct and straightforward approach, Gleyce leads clients to discover the cause of their stress and learn actionable tools to manage its effects. With respect to the complexity of each individual’s experience and the context that informs their challenges, she balances clearly set goals with empathy and validation. Her blend of psychoanalytic training and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques brings a coaching element to her sessions, where emotion and action are equally valued.
Gleyce’s whole-person approach to therapy helps inspire confidence and build leadership skills in the workplace, leaving more room for finding purpose and fulfillment in interpersonal relationships. Her active role in sessions tends to work best with adults in management, high-level sales roles, executive-level roles, and science-based fields.
Her years of experience and proven methods help clients learn to set personal and professional boundaries, lessen the hold of anxiety over body and mind, manage symptoms of depression, and rediscover the spark of purpose that once gave them direction. Clients willing to take a deeper dive into their experiences will benefit from the supported therapeutic space where they can allow their most vulnerable parts to have a voice, be heard and accepted. Paired with practical strategies, working with Gleyce helps clients create the change they’re looking for in their life.
