Shortly after, she became a Registered Play Therapist. In 2013, Gloria assumed the position of Clinical Director for Children and Adolescent services at CETPA and started supervising interns from Georgia State University. In her new role, she was responsible for increasing children and adolescent services and programming as well as, revenue for the organization. Gloria created and expanded 3 playrooms and an expressive arts room, implemented the GA APEX project, and started 3 schools that expanded to 5, assisted in the implementation of the mental health resiliency clubhouse and collaborated with and supported the substance abuse support clubhouse. Gloria expanded the internship program from 2 schools to 6, including an international university (Universidad Del Norte, Colombia). Gloria moved into several leadership roles within the agency with the last being Center Director in late 2017.
As of March 2020, Gloria is the Director for Play Therapy for View Point Health. In her new role, Gloria has supervised more than 25 clinicians which has enhanced View Point’s programming and internship opportunities.

I am the founder and owner of The Journey Counseling Services in Kennesaw, GA, where I’ve been in private practice since 2010. In 2020, I decided to expand my practice and became a group practice. This was done, so I can help more people in the community. Now with five therapists at my practice, we’re able to do so. Diversity, Representation, and Inclusion is very important to me. So, it was also important that my practice represented that, especially as a place where BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) can see a therapist that looks like them. We are also an anti-racist, pro-social justice, and inclusive practice.
In 2015, I created The Ebony Journey Facebook group, out of a personal and professional need. The goal of this group is to assist with balancing some of the images that children see or find (easily) in mainstream society. To help Black and Brown children see and be exposed to more (positive) images of people that look like them, while assist with exposing ALL children, no matter their race, to more (positive) images of Black and Brown people (dolls, books, events, activities, etc.), promoting and embracing diversity. In 2018, I created The Journey of Cultural and Racial Diversity in Play Therapy Facebook group, for child and play therapists. The purpose of this group is to provide support and assist play therapists with building and maintaining a culturally and racially diverse play therapy practice, as well as share culturally and racially diverse resources. Currently both groups have over 1000 members in each group. I’m also a 2021 Leadership Academy Graduate.
