About me

My name is Brenda Drake, and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Mississippi. I earned my Master of Counseling degree from Mississippi College, in 2010 and received my Licensure in 2013. I have provided services to individuals, families, couples, adolescents and children from diverse racial, ethnic, spiritual and socio-economic backgrounds, as well as members of the LGBTQ Community. I have used various therapeutic modalities along the way to meet my clients where they are at and to help them achieve their goals. Common treatment modalities include: Client Centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused. I have also worked specifically with adolescents with suicidal issues. My goal is to create a safe space that is non-judgmental, inclusive and empowering where we can work collaboratively to achieve what success means to you and also provide insight, techniques, and tools (to work on and practice in between sessions) that you can use in making changes in your life. Most importantly, I will work with you at a pace that you are comfortable with to ensure we are moving toward the goals that you make for yourself. I look forward to encouraging you, empowering you, guiding you, and even challenging you at times.
