Meet Dr. Glo McArter

My calling is to encourage you to accept the realities of life – what creates pain, sadness, fear, instability, hurt, anger, uncertainty, confusion – and to heal, grow and learn from the lessons learned by these realities. 

My faith in a loving and compassionate Spirit and in an inviting and uplifting energy continues to strengthen my courage and deepen peace and sensitivity within myself and for others.

My straightforward and empathic manner is aligned with my values of dignity, respect and equality for others. I hear and feel the wisdom from the universal Life Force that reminds me to deeply care for the sacred innocence of every human being.  

My intention is to create a safe space, free of judgment, for conversation, exploration and reflection that guides you to your desired destination. 

In the midst of wondering how your life can change for the better, I help you identify and use your strengths, qualities and gifts that you have minimized and possibly forgotten.

About Me

I am a lifelong student who continues to learn the benefits of the “3 – C’s”: connection, conversation, and curiosity. Practicing these enhances the basic human and spiritual need of belonging. 

My spiritual faith in a power, an energy, a guiding force greater than I continues to transform my shame to worthiness, fear to love, despair to hope, and upheaval to peace. 

I am honored to hear your story and gently and firmly encourage you to find new and healthier ways to bring about the changes being called for by the struggles.  

I am dedicated to the healing power of meditation, prayer, journaling, energy body practices, yoga, acupuncture, vibrational sound bath, attuning to music, walks and reflection in nature.

Gloria, you are truly a beautiful and soulful person

When I came to Gloria, I was bound up in my fear, excuses and inaction.

She guided me to open and trust more in my worthiness. Her spiritful energy helped me feel free to make positive choices with more awareness of possibilities and opportunities.

My counselling experience with Gloria has meant freedom to move through the pain and sadness that paralyzed me in the past. Now, with less fear, I make choices for what I really want in my life. Thank-you, Gloria, you are truly a beautiful and soulful person.
