Professional statement

Brianna Paruolo, MHC-LP, is a mental health counselor who specializes in collaborating with adolescents, teenagers, and adults who need support to navigate life challenges and changes. She leads with a relational and reflective approach while collaborating with her clients to address their individualized experiences, intentions, and goals.

She focuses on exploring unhelpful patterns and beliefs one might be holding on to, while promoting an increase in self-awareness. With the use of modalities (such as CBT, DBT, and mindfulness) tailored to each individual, her clients gain a better understanding of themselves and utilize adaptive tools to conquer what life throws their way. She has experience helping clients overcome perfectionistic thinking, self-esteem, life transitions, and navigating the corporate environment.

Brianna strives to act through love and kindness while creating a safe, welcoming, therapeutic space and continuously promoting the evolution towards awareness, acceptance, and compassion for oneself.


Message to clients

No matter where you find yourself on your mental health journey, I am here to support you. Therapy is a collaborative effort, so let’s do the hard part together and begin! I am a firm believer that we all possess the tools to create the life we desire. I strive to create a safe, welcoming, therapeutic space and continuously promote the evolution toward awareness, acceptance, and compassion for oneself.

I approach every therapeutic experience with the mindset that one technique does not fit all. I have had the honor to work with strong, inspiring, motivated, and unique individuals. If you find yourself questioning your self-worth, uncertain about the current direction of your life, or needing some extra support, I am ready to support you.
