Professional statement

Brianna works with clients who want to find change. She has a heart for making an impact and helping others from start to finish, making her empathetic and patient with clients. She is passionate about supporting those struggling with mental health challenges and offers both emotional support and skills to battle intrusive thoughts. She is especially passionate about promoting body autonomy and positivity as well as supporting low-income households. Brianna has over 4.5 years experience working in a residential setting with youth who have experienced the death of a parent, homelessness, behavioral issues, immigrating to the USA to live with an adoptive family, and parental addiction/neglect/abuse. This experience aided her in developing her abilities of active listening, reflective responses, and empathetic understanding. Lastly, Brianna is a knowledge seeker, continuing to expand her knowledge and expertise on modalities and disorders.


Message to clients

I love helping and serving others, which is probably related to watching my half-brother aid our community throughout my childhood. He has worked as a paramedic, fire safety inspector, and helped clean up the aftermath of 9/11. Since childhood, but especially going into my undergraduate career, I knew I wanted to end up in a helping profession. Being a therapist has become one of the most fulfilling things in my life.

I am personable and passionate about my work. Working with me you will be given many resources to alleviate mental distress. Some may be through reading works that help with enlightenment, others will be mental skills, such as mindfulness techniques, and others will be tangible ways to interrupt intuitive thoughts.
