Glenn S. Cohen 5/ 5 based on 1 37 ratings.

I had bad experiences with psychologists/psychiatrists as a young adult and went to several counselors before I found Glenn, so I was hesitant to see anyone! When I went to Glenn I was going through the toughest time of my life. There were definitely moments that I wasn't sure how I was going to move forward, but those were moments when Glenn was there for me the most.

No matter the time of day or if it was a Saturday or Sunday, he was always just a phone call away. I can honestly say that I am the confident, positive and extremely happy person I am today because of the work I did with Glenn. And yes, you do have to DO the work.

There is no button to push to make it better but Glenn will provide you will all of the tools and the guidance to truly become the best version of yourself IF you put the work into it. If you're looking for an easy way out, you shouldn't see Glenn. He's tough on you when you really need to be pushed but VERY compassionate when you're at your weakest.

If you truly want to make changes in your life for any reason (be it career, relationship or personal development), RUN don't walk to Glenn's office. He is the best investment you could ever make for yourself and your life. I can honestly say that I have a true, lifelong friend in Glenn now.

“We had a great experience working with Glenn. I guess you could say we shopped around for a counselor before we decided to go with him. One day just talking to my now wife. I told her, "I look at it like this, these other counselor's we have seen they are not going to do the job as good as Glenn." "We are fixer upper and the other counselors are just going to paint the walls and put new everything in it to make it look good to the eye." "We need to blow out some walls, new plumbing, and some foundation work." "Glenn will do all that for us." 

After telling my wife that she was on board. We spent a few months with Glenn, after completing the coaching we learned how we need to express our feelings and how to talk through things. He really digs down to the roots to find out where all it comes from and then gives you the tools to help you, even after you are done. I would recommend Glenn to anyone that needs a little fixing up on their relationship.”

Our 22 year old was going through a difficult time coping with a number of life challenges including relationship issues, making a solid career choice along with the ever present social pressures that all of our children face today. As parents, we had done all that we could and more including various therapists and life coaches which was unsuccessful until we finally found Glenn Cohen. Glenn was able to communicate and relate to our son in a way others could not. Together they were able to dig deep into understanding the issues and more importantly find positive solutions with a road map forward. Although challenging at times Glenn was honest and tough but we are happy to say that together they achieved great success. We cannot begin to express our sincere thanks to Glenn for guiding us through these trying times with one of the most important people in our lives, our son. Today, our son is focused and positive about what his future holds which we are very grateful for.

Glenn helped me work through some serious childhood trauma that has impacted me negatively through my entire life. The process was emotional and had an immediate positive impact. Over time his in office coaching and the work I was expected to do on my own enabled me to free myself from the cycle of abuse and neglect that I repeatedly subjected myself to. If you are ready to get to the root of the issues at hand and do some serious, life changing work I highly recommend you contact Glenn for a mutual interview.

A relationship doesn't need 'saving' to benefit from Glenn Cohen. Anyone who wants a deeper understanding of themselves and their significant other, and to grow together as a couple should invest some time with Glenn. My wife and I have never felt closer.

Glenn exceeded my expectations as a coach. He is an incredibly supportive and compassionate coach. He understands what is needed before I do. He makes sessions fun by being playful and authentic. In a short amount of time his sessions have profoundly impacted my personal and professional life as well as my relationship with my beloved. It's amazing how much difference gentle guidance can make.

Working with Glenn has truly changed me and my life and how I see myself and the people in my life. Working with Glenn was different from any other "therapist" I'd been to. He helped me get real, and didn't feed into my story, and because of that I've changed and grown as a person. Glenn helped me get in touch with what I really felt, and what I needed in my life to be TRULY happy. My communication with my significant other, and my employees has gotten much better. There are so many positive things to say I could go on all day. But mainly, if you are ready to get real, be open to learning new techniques, and live your life to the fullest, Glen can help get you there! I highly recommend him.

Glenn helped guide me through the most difficult time of my life. With his help, my husband and I successfully navigated the muddy waters of a difficult divorce, and have managed to keep our relationship positive for our children. His approach is amazing. Trust him to lead you through the process and you will be a better person. His positive and supportive energy is contagious. He has helped me grow into a much more emotionally intelligent woman. He will challenge you to think differently, to be flexible, and be there to support you when you need to someone to listen.

"My boyfriend of 10 years and I have been seeing Glenn Cohen for 5 months. Our relationship has grown and improved every week after meeting with Glenn. We have learned terminology to better communicate what we feel and how to express the magnitude of those feelings.

 

I am proud to say that after 5 long months of Glenn's guidance, we were able to calm ourselves using the CDT Technique in the middle of a disagreement and we were able to share our true thoughts, intentions, and feelings as friends and partners, not as enemies. Glenn coaches you through arguments, is always there to listen, recommends great books, and teaches you techniques to understand and appreciate your partner as a unique individual, not what you think they should be.

 

My relationship was saved by Glenn Cohen and I would highly recommend him to anyone in my life seeking understanding of themselves, their partner, or their relationship."

I am writing this letter share with you how much the workshop "Shift Happens" has changed my life.  I don't believe in chance meetings and my attending your workshop was truly a Divine Appointment.  I have been on a journey of self-exploration and growth for the past 12 years.  After my divorce I decided to try and figure out what went wrong in my marriage and what role I played in my divorce.  Over the years I have been to counseling, read books, listened to motivational speakers, taken classes, searched scripture, attended church, talked to people, watched movies, searched the web, and any other form of gaining information on men, women, and relationships you can think of.  I have analyzed my life, family, friends, intimate relationships, and partners.  Needless to say I had a lot of fragmented information floating around my head.  I was able to gain understanding in some areas but have never been able to "connect ALL the dots". 

 

From the moment you began to speak I was able to relate the information with the seemingly random events of my life. Suddenly everything made perfect sense and  I finally got answer to the "Whys" in my life.   It was such an emotionally freeing experience that I fought back tears all night.  However, during the open discussion I was unable to maintain my composure and the flood gates opened.  For the first time in my life I am free from my past hurts and fears. I am finally ready to walk into my future as I am clear on my purpose.

 

There are not enough words to accurately express how I feel and If I said thank you a million times it wouldn't be enough.  The work you have done is truly remarkable and it has changed me forever. I will tell everyone I know about you and your work.  May God continue to bless you and what you do.

My fiancé and I are very pleased with Glenn’s premarital coaching services and believe we have built a solid foundation for our upcoming marriage!  We found I & WE Coaching through several searches online and are very happy we decided to give it a chance. We were looking for a premarital program that would help to prepare us for our lives together and Glenn provided us with several useful communication tactics to practice outside of coaching.  He worked with us over several weeks to craft various communication techniques and apply these to real life situations.

 

Glen also helped us to understand how our past experiences and relationships played into our present lives and how to let them go!  Lastly, Glenn really helped us find where in our relationship there was room for improvement and the details involved.  We were given several useful materials to review during our time with Glenn and to keep for the future.  All in all we are so glad that we and would recommend him to any couple that is about to get married, and those whom have been married for a while and are looking to become an even stronger couple!

This letter is to tell you about my experiences with Glenn Cohen and his workshops at I & WE Coaching.  I first met Glenn in 2006 when my wife and I signed up for his couple’s coaching.  Shortly after we were married, we hit the usual issues, and tried a number of counselors, which were all unsuccessful.  However Glenn was the one my wife and I both connected with.  I still use many of the techniques he taught us in my everyday life, as Glenn was different from all the others because he gives the tools needed to communicate in business and personal life.

 

In 2010, I decided to start my own biotech company, which took off more quickly than I could have imagined.  In October 2011, a large corporation acquired my company and we expanded the facility and personnel at exponential rates.  Shortly after our evolution, I began seeing the usual “growing pains” after expanding the number of employees and space by 400% in 1 month.   Being all laboratory employees, the culture tends to promote people who work well alone and now working inside a large corporation, they needed to adapt to working with others in this office and in the other offices around the country.  I remembered how much I got out of Glenn’s work, and called him to come in and provide some workshops for my team.

 

When I announced to the staff I was bringing someone in to help with team building, leadership, etc, I received the “usual” eye rolling and one person asked if they could skip the class because they were really busy.  However, once Glenn came in and began the workshops with everyone, we began seeing a huge change to all the employees’ attitudes.  In fact, ¾ of the employees asked to have additional one on one time with Glenn so help their personal growth.  I was so pleased with the feedback from 100% of my employees, I decided to pay for a number of hours for each employee to meet with Glenn 1-on-1, of which all but one employee took me up on that offer.

 

In the year since Glenn met with my team, I have seen a change in all but one of the employees.  Many times I hear them say something like, “Would Glenn approve of how you just spoke with that person?”  To that, I just smile and couldn’t be happier we brought him in to work with my team.  Furthermore, I have seen a handful of my employees strive to move up and take a more management/supervisory position, which I believe wouldn’t haven been possible without the skills brought to them by Glenn.

 

I am sure you can tell that Glenn’s workshops have helped guide my life both personally and in business.  One of my employees who started as my Executive Assistant is now successfully running a large medical practice and I believe this is partly because of her communication and team building skills learned and executed with Glenn.  I give Glenn and his workshops my highest recommendations and would be happy to discuss with you further if you have any questions.

There has never been a single person who has had more of a positive impact on my husband and I’s marriage and happiness than Glenn. He is truly amazing at what he does and is such a good, caring person.

 

Last August, I met with a divorce attorney. The attorney handed me a piece of paper with Glenn’s name and number. He advised me to go to Glenn and come back in six months if needed. He said “Glenn is everyone’s last resort. I wish he was their first because there would be more people happily married. If he can’t help, then no one can.

 

Since the day we walked in the door, my husband and I’s lives have been transformed. It is nothing short of a miracle that I am happily married today. God put Glenn in our lives and I am forever grateful.

 

Glenn has been there for us in our sessions and in between sessions as needed. We had some deep seeded family issues as well as marriage issues. It has been a challenging year and with Glenn’s expertise, patience, and love; we made it through. He never gave up on my husband and I individually and with our marriage. He wants his clients to progress and “graduate” and he truly cares about each person. He puts his clients above money and success. He will be famous someday. He is an incredible person.

 

I highly recommend him for whatever you are going through. He changed our lives and he will change yours, too. You will live a life of peace and happiness that you never knew was possible. I thank God every day that Glenn is in our life and for all he has done for us.

My husband and I are grateful for Glenn's marital coaching.  I was hesitant to find a marriage counselor since I know even the most well intentioned therapist could leave us stuck discussing 'feelings' without much accountability and clear direction.  I didn't feel that we had time for that.  I was referred by a friend who a year and a half earlier was seeking a divorce lawyer, and this lawyer said "If Glenn couldn't help them, than no one could."  Now they are doing well, still married thanks to Glenn's work.  I thought their success was worthy of giving Glenn a chance.

 

Glenn has not coddled us rather he held us each completely accountable for all our behaviors, even the subtle ones that still hurt, and required us to play a pro-active role in safe, respectful, communication to heal and move forward in a more healthy relationship.

 

Glenn's coaching also helped my husband work through challenges in his work environment and gave him tools in creating his own happiness which was a struggle for him.  We have come a long way and have eternal thanks to Glenn for all his nuggets of wisdom, practical tools for working through the everyday woes of marriage.

I cannot really find the words to accurately describe what an enormous influence Glenn's work has had on our marriage and on our lives.   We had tried individual counselors and two other marriage counselors.  I had resigned myself to having to break up our marriage of 20 years or to stick it out until the kids got to college, but I had really gave up all hope that improvement would be coming in our lives.

 

I was very lonely in my marriage and we had even separated for over nine months. Conflict was a daily struggle.  I was really at a breaking point and didn't know where else to turn but I knew I do not believe in divorce.  I found Glen on the internet and he immediately returned my call.  It was really the miracle we had been praying for and needed in our lives.

 

We began working with Glen each week and continued for well over a year.  Some weeks there would be small changes in perspective and understanding between us and other week’s giant leaps. He provided us with excellent materials that we could refer back to and guide us through the process.    When a student is ready a teacher will appear.  Glen was that teacher for us. We are both doing very well, and our marriage is thriving.  We continue to refer back to the materials he gave us but find implementing his communication techniques and following the concepts get easier with time.

 

I am so blessed and grateful we got to work with Glenn.  I wish him ever success and hopes his coaching continues to thrive.  Thank you so much for all you have done for us and our family.  I can never express my gratitude and appreciation enough.

Major breakthrough today in our session, thank you for your coaching. Thank you for guiding me toward a new place. For the first time in my life I am starting to not fear acceptance. I feel a lot lighter than I did yesterday. Today was hard, but so freeing!

Thank you for hosting the workshop today.  I was pleasantly surprised how involved Matt really was in learning/understanding the process and we had a great discussion on the way home. I was very fearful that he would just 'sit through' the program this morning and laugh it off later and not want to participate. He had a different perception about how the meeting would go today and we were both a bit skeptical about counseling or at least finding the right counselor. However, we were very pleased at how laid back and progressive your program seems to be, not the out-dated lie-on-the-couch "tell me how you feel" ideology.

 

He was bringing up so many of your points in the car, I could just really tell that he was listening and taking your methods seriously. He even thanked me over lunch for caring enough about our relationship to sign us up to participate in counseling. It was one of the sweetest things that anyone has ever said to me! There was one acronym that really resonated with me and that was BOD- Benefit of a doubt. Of course I am aware of this principle, but I by no means practice this in any relationship/situation in my life. It is something that has been excluded that I now know I need to consider and bring back into my life. Thank you :)

 

We would really like to set up a private session with you to start learning and working to make our relationship better and better. Matt is very busy between work and school but this is a priority for us. We are free Tues and Wed lunch/evenings and all day Saturdays. Please let me know what works with your schedule and what the rate(s) for sessions would be.

 

Also, please keep us in the loop for workshops. I would like to bring a friend with me to the next workshop who is going through a divorce and looking for the right resources/counseling. I think you/your program is exactly what she has been searching for :)

My boyfriend and I went to see Glenn several months ago when our relationship was having major problems.  I was hooked on changing virtually every aspect of our relationship and my boyfriend because so much needed changing. I went to Glenn because I wanted him to help my boyfriend "see the light".  I considered myself very much at the time very aware and "evolved"  and if only my boyfriend could catch up to my level (how arrogant), we would be perfect together.

 

Glenn, I believed was just the man to shake my boyfriend out of his denial, and self defeating habits.  Little did I know that it was I who needed to be shaken out of my denial and self defeating habits-- which is exactly what Glenn did.  He told me at the beginning that waiting on potential is a very dangerous thing... which is exactly what I had been doing... what I had always done in relationships.  I didn't want to hear this because I still wanted to believe  in his potential to become a better man/ boyfriend and I was hell bent on making "us" work.  But Glenn with his matter a fact yet gentle and non judgmental approach slowly mirrored to me what I was doing on my end in the relationship-- all that I was doing to sabotage my happiness now by waiting on an elusive potential.

 

Needless to say, it was Glenn that helped me to awaken to the deeper truth of what was going on which made it so much easier to remove myself from the toxic relationship with inner conviction and strength.  As a result I am so much happier and gone are the days that I feel the need to "love" another enough into some distant potential. Sometimes the best expression of love is to free yourself and the other from what clearly isn't meant to be.

I found out about Glenn from a good friend who shared with me he and his wife’s experiences working through Glenn, and I felt it was a good fit for my wife and me. As it turned out, I learned more in our first session than I did in all other sessions with a marriage counselor, and I sensed my wife felt less threatened because he was offering help whether we decided to stay together or not. My wife wanted out, and so we ended our 13 year relationship and yet today, I can say we are civil toward one another and work well with childcare arrangements, and much of that is due to our working under the guidance of Glenn.

 

After the separation and divorce, I decided to keep seeing Glenn as a Personal Coach, and again, that was a great decision! I’ve learned more about myself (really deep self-analysis); I’ve learned communication skills that help me with the ex, with clients, colleagues, friends, significant others, and most importantly with myself (the subconscious). There’s a lot one can say to themselves that can trigger into elevated negativity. We all have memories or childhood wounds that affect how we view the present and when you combine that with a life situation that involves lots of pain, we can get triggered into negativity and a cycle of communication that can be so unhealthy. Glenn led me through this awareness, and provided me the required skills for healthy communication. These are techniques that work!  

 

He’ll challenge you to learn and it’s up to you to put the effort in, use his techniques and use him. He was available when I needed him the most, and that’s a real difference between him and other coaches or therapists. You don’t have to sit and twist your mind into a frenzy--you can call him, text him, email him, go see him, and he’ll lead you through the pain, across the bridge to a new path. When you are feeling good about yourself, about your direction and you use the tools necessary for meaningful communication, you reach an inner peace that is so rewarding and have the ability to create emotionally healthy relationships. That has been the icing on the cake, and I owe so much to Glenn.

Please accept this humble, simple letter as a thank you and letter of recommendation for your work with both of us -- but it is impossible to simplify the journey we have been on together for about 4 months that has led us to the seemingly impossible destination of "peaceful parenting partners"; my ex-husband and I now exist in that place.

 

When we met with you for the first time, it was a highly charged meeting with two very contentious people.  He had been encouraged by our prior therapist to track me via GPS and this had created tremendous stress and a lack of trust in what was left of our relationship.  I lacked any understanding of his personal war chest of emotional wounds, and felt he placed his parents ahead of me or our children in priority.

 

Your "lack of format" format was key in our transition, and I believe that it allowed access to you and your coaching in the most key moments.  Had those moments passed without your input and guidance then I am certain that things would have continued to escalate into a very long, costly and bitter divorce and custody battle.

 

I thank you, personally, for getting us through all of that somehow.  We now cooperate fully in working together for the best of our children.  We are very nearly done with our attorneys and who knows how much money you have save us! 

 

Best of all, our children have quickly moved through their own processes and we have learned, with your coaching, how to notice and interpret their emotional cues; better yet, we are working with them on developing their own skills at emotional intelligence.  They have settled into their new school and seem to be embracing their new lives and are fine (so far) with having two houses.  In my heart, I know it is because both of those houses are at peace.  Thanks to you.

 

I remain grateful and always will be!
