Her hope is that her clients feel empowered to face life’s challenges and supported throughout their time in treatment.

Approach

Brandi’s approach to counseling begins with the foundational belief that you are the expert on yourself. Her goal is to see you, know you, and trust your experience of life. Brandi also knows, that we go to counseling because there is something we are experiencing that we would like to be different. She seeks to empower clients to reach their goals of change and healing through creating a treatment plan unique to each client focused on their entire self (physical, psychological, social, and spiritual). She uses traditional talk-therapy approaches to understand and challenge your perspective and tool-based approaches such as Cognitive/Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (CBT/DBT) and Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) to help clients challenge thoughts and manage emotions in daily life. Brandi helps clients engage with the brain-body connection and address trauma history through the treatment approaches of mindfulness and Brainspotting.
