Dr. Glenn Doyle is a licensed clinical psychologist. He is the founder and director of the Doyle Practice, a private psychotherapy practice with offices in Chicago and Washington DC, and the author of the popular self-improvement blog “Use Your Damn Skills.”

He has presented multiple times at the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation and the American Psychological Association, and has served as a behavioral health consultant for witnesses testifying before Congress on the subject of treating trauma survivors.
Dr. Doyle is passionate about making effective, safe, empowering psychological and behavioral tools available to as many people as possible. The Doyle Practice does a great deal of pro bono and sliding scale work, and his psychology blog “Use Your Damn Skills” is followed by almost 50,000 fans.
