successful psychotherapy practice. In her career she is now emphasizing
sharing the latest amazing discoveries about what works in

Dr. Gless strives to help couples understand
their relationship more deeply and fashion the tools they need to
create healthy, happy, fulfilling relationships. Because she sees
relationships as a natural crucible for growth, transformation and
creativity, she has helped many couples understand their relationship
in new ways so that they can resolve their conflicts and grow together.
She emphasizes looking for what goes right in a relationship as well as
what goes wrong. She always asks herself, “How can I help couples grow
and realize the potential of their unique relationship?” Every
relationship is an opportunity for growth and creativity because the
two partners are very different from everyone else and so the
relationship they create together is unique.

She uses trance sessions as a special way of
unlocking individual and shared creativity. She has written many
articles on relationships, appeared on TV shows, given internet
interviews and has even been quoted in Cosmopolitan Magazine.
