Stefanie Glick, LSW, MSS, MA, CPS
Executive Director, Creator of the LiveWell Program®
Drawing on a diverse professional career that spans over 30 years, as well as her personal experience of living well with depression, Stefanie co-founded and currently leads the LiveWell Foundation.
In addition to serving in leadership roles in various nonprofit organizations, Stefanie has established a reputation as a program design expert, and her innovative life-skills curricula have been offered to more than a million youth and adults across the globe.
In 2016 - after identifying a surprising (and alarming!) paucity of community support options for people living with depression - Stefanie turned her attention to psychosocial education and created the LiveWell Program. With the mentorship of Dr. Aaron T. Beck, Stefanie launched her first LiveWell depression support group in Philadelphia in 2017. To date, she has also created LiveWell programs for teens, seniors, adults living with co-occurring depression and addictive behaviors, and physicians.
Stefanie currently provides private therapy to both individuals and groups. She holds a Masters degree from Bryn Mawr's Graduate School of Social Work & Social Research - where she completed internships as a therapist at University of Pennsylvania's Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinic and on the dual-diagnosis inpatient unit at Friends Hospital - and is also a Certified Peer Specialist. She also holds a Masters degree from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and a Bachelors degree from the Univ. of Colorado-Boulder. Stefanie is a playwright and member of the Dramatists Guild of America.
