JENNIFER L. GLOCK, M.A. Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
To my dear clients:
It is with great reluctance and sadness that I have decided to retire, effective 7/15/2020. I have always said that I love what I’m doing so much that I would not retire until I could no longer do it effectively. Unfortunately, this is the case now. As many of you know I have had a long stretch of medical issues which, although not (thankfully) terminal, has disrupted my ability to be as sharp, energetic, and consistent as this position demands. I have always been keenly aware of how serious and important my job was and how much trust and faith you gave me to do the very best I could to help you make your life better and therapy successful. In the process I have become a part of your lives and you have become a part of mine. Each of you has taught me something and given me something that has contributed to the quality of my life. I will always be grateful for those gifts. And I will miss you.
I am giving you some names of therapists that you can contact so you can continue your therapy going forward. You may also want to contact your insurance company for a list of therapists that they recommend and are their service providers. Your physician is also a good referral source, as are your friends who have had good outcomes. My list is rather short because most of my colleagues whom I knew well are all old and retired like me.

Your records and my case notes are confidential and will remain in my possession until 7/15/22 after which they will be shredded professionally and securely according to HIPAA guidelines. I will be happy to provide a summary of our therapy sessions to your new therapist for continuity of care, upon your request. A signed Release of Information Form will need to be completed in order for me to do that.
This is going to be a very challenging time for me. I have been in practice since 1972 and being a therapist is one of the single most important and defining aspects of my life. It will be hard to be without it. However, I’m going to move forward and find what is next for me. Certainly spending more time with my children and grandchildren will be first on the list. And sitting in my garden and reading sounds pretty good, too. But I will miss you all and I will never forget you. I wish you courage, confidence, peace, and joy.
