Professional statement

Hi, I'm Dr. Brookins licensed marriage and family therapist. I'm also a senior pastor's wife and I specialize in counseling Christian women. Growing up in the church I understand first hand, the sensitive and often complex needs of Christian believers. And as a skilled licensed mental health professional, I also understand that our mental health matters. And, Jesus does not want us to suffer. As a Strengths-Based therapist, I utilize CBT, EMDR, and Solution Focused interventions in treatment. I also offer a variety of coaching packages specifically designed for the Christian woman.


Message to clients

Things I'm great at. Anger management, I've been gifted to take a light-hearted approach to a very serious topic. Women's issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and getting along with other women- even if you "get along better with the guys". I can help you set healthy boundaries- and keep them.

If this sounds like you. Please contact me and schedule your first appointment to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you
