Meet the Founder

My name is Glodie Motanga, usually referred to by Glo; the founder and owner of Glow Care Support, PLLC. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate with a Master’s Degrees in Social Work from North Carolina State University. Like most immigrants and refugees, I have dealt with mental/emotional breakdowns throughout my migration journey to the United States of America, resulting in depressive episodes, major anxiety, sleep disturbance, loss of interest in people and activities, academic underachievement, including several hospitalizations to ER due to massive panic attacks, and the list goes on and on. Luckily, I was able to overcome these challenges through support from genuine people who did not give up on me. In addition, I engage in practicing gratitude mindfulness in my daily routine by recognizing challenges are a part of life. I remind myself to focus on things in my control. Furthermore, I enjoy practicing positive self-talk, positive thoughts, engaging in social interactions, and most importantly helping others.

Combining both my life and professional experiences, I am bringing a unique approach into my practice to help people utilize the most accessible resources, focus on their strengths, and reach their goals. 

Professionally, I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults populations from diverse cultural backgrounds in various settings by providing case management services and mental/emotional health treatment. Also, I have implemented individual, family, and group therapy using evidence-based treatment modalities.

Common Life Issues Addressed in Counseling Include, but are not limited to:

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Adjustment Difficulties Associated with Migration Journey, Career Choices, etc
  • Academic Underachievement/School Issues
  • Bereavement/Grief/Loss

  • Lack of enthusiasm or interest in activities that were formerly sources of pleasure
  • Life Transitions
  • Maladaptive Coping Mechanisms
  • Poor Social/Interpersonal Skills
  • Parenting Issues
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Stress
  • Sleep and Diet Issues
  • Women Issues

Tips To Support Someone Facing Life Challenges

  • Be a LISTENER: Let the person express their experiences in their ways without adding details to them. Being a listener does not mean you are there to fix their issues. As a teammate, the best support you can give is by being a trusting ear, helping to navigate resources, and acting as a source of encouragement.
  • BE NON-JUDGMENTAL: Don’t criticize or minimize the way they feel. You may not be able to understand exactly what they’re going through, and that’s ok. Try to avoid asking triggering questions such as “why,” which may perceive as a negative or judgmental tone, even though your intentions may have been good. You may ask questions like, “What can I do to help?”
  • BRIDGE to RESOURCES: Help direct the person to the right community resources from caring professionals who would assist and help meet their needs, whether mental health concerns related or case. For any threats or reports for harm, you can have the person or yourself contact the “National Suicide Prevention Lifeline” by calling 800-873-8255
