About Me

I am accepting chat and phone clients, I have a auditory issue and until it is managed I am asking for mostly chat therapy clients.
I am a Licensed Professional counselor with over 15 years of experience as a therapist in a private practice and I am also a hypnosis coach. I have worked with a wide variety of clients, military, first responder, and other people from all walks of life. I have enjoyed working with teen agers from all types of backgrounds: military child, foster, someone going through a tough time. My clients were of various diagnosis: PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, to name a few.

I have a gentle but warm counseling style. I believe in seeing the world from my clients eyes and then work on expanding the world view. I treat client with respect, compassion, and empathy. I have several therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive behavioral, mindfulness, and humanistic. I do not believe in the "cookie cutter" approach, I will get to know you and work with you on the approach the works best for you. I have worked with many families with teen agers and I do believe early mental health intervention can really benefit the family and the teen as well.

I believe therapy can be life changing for the better and it will be the best decision you can make, not just with me but any therapist. You are not alone and there are options to help better your mental health.

I would enjoy working with you!

Brenda is the best. She has never made me feel pressured in anyway, I feel comfortable working with her, and she is knowledgeable. I have been through my fair share of therapists and she has definitely created a safe space for me.

I am so grateful to have been connected with Brenda. She creates a safe space for me to share my emotions and never judges me. She helps me understand why I feel the way I do, and teaches me ways to cope. She always encourages me and I look forward to our sessions.
