MICHELLE GLANTZ, PhD
Dr. Michelle Glantz obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology from The George Washington University in Washington D.C. She continued her education at The Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies in New York where she received her masters and doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Glantz then completed her predoctoral internship on a long-term forensic inpatient unit at Manhattan Psychiatric Center treating patients with violent criminal histories. She functioned as ward psychologist for severely mentally ill patients with a variety of mental health diagnoses, including PTSD, Schizophrenia, substance abuse, and personality disorders. The goal of this program was to assist patients in returning to the community while decreasing their chances of rehospitalization or incarceration. Dr. Glantz then completed an APA accredited postdoctoral fellowship in the PTSD Clinic at The Long Beach VA Hospital where she worked with combat veterans and survivors of military sexual trauma. While the foundation of Dr. Glantz's training has been psychodynamic psychotherapy, she has received extensive formal training in several evidenced based treatments such as Mindfulness, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. Dr. Glantz now practices at PCH Treatment Center and in private practice treating a wide range of mental health issues including complex trauma and anxiety related disorders, OCD, life transitional issues, prenatal and postpartum issues, emotional dysegulation, and depression.
