Hi, welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read about me. My name is Bridgette a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in California. I have been a therapist in various capacities over the past 10 years including, but not limited to working as a school counselor, in a residential treatment facility, community mental health, and private practice. I'm really glad that you have taken this step to feeling better and I am excited to start this journey with you.
A little about therapy with me and my approach is just that of trying to meet individuals where they are at and follow your lead and pace. Some of my favorite approaches and techniques includes CBT, DBT, Art, Relational and Narrative therapies. If at anytime, you need me to be more pushy or are looking for a different approach please know I'm always open to feedback as I want this to be the best space, most beneficial, and therapeutic process for you. Different approaches work differently for individuals, so sometimes I need to make adjustments based on feedback received.
Given that this is an online platform, there are times when people forget that I'm here, but I will reach out and prompt or attempt to prompt a conversation. If I do reach out, please don't ever feel like you have to respond and don't feel guilty if you don't. This is your space and journey, and I'm here to support you in whatever way works for you. Please know, I will never be offended by good or bad feedback as it is the best way for our work to grow and for me to ensure that you are getting what you came here for! Lastly, I look forward to working with you and starting this journey. If you have any additional questions that I haven't answered, please don't hesitate to ask.

So far since I got into therapy I’ve already felt a relief and a sense of someone being here for me at anytime to help me stay on track with my life and I can’t thank Ms. Bridgette Herrmann for helping me do that!!
Coming from having bad experience from my past on seeking counseling/therapy etc. it wasnt a good one. Took me over a decade to try again. As i held everything all in thinking i got it. Hide it all and smile for everyone.
We can only carry so much within. It was tearing me inside. That’s how I here. I know I needed to help myself & heal but wanted to find that core that has a hold on me and let it go.
Bridgette is by far very understanding and thoroughly with everything.
I hope you all get that help too.
Seems lovely, even after the first consultation I felt at home
