Welcome to SGC’s Blog!

Hello there and welcome to Stained Glass Counseling’s Blog, written by me, Brandi Solanki. I’m a Mental Health and Addiction Counselor in Waco, TX and I’ve been practicing for five years. I am passionate about awareness of personal responsibility (which means owning your stuff and letting go of what is not yours), empowering others to engage in change for themselves and their community, and education regarding psychological/brain/relational health. I believe that clients can only move through change and healing as much as their counselors have done so themselves. That’s why I have committed to my own growth and healing of trauma throughout my education and career.
My approach to change is a balance between implementing psychoeducation/tools and addressing trauma/underlying issues. I believe you are the expert on yourself and my work with my clients focuses on empowering them to see themselves completely and take steps toward the change/healing they desire.
My hope is this blog will help you understand that YOU ARE NOT CRAZY! I will help you understand the science behind your struggles with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, unhealthy relationship patterns and more. I will challenge you to know your entire self through deep reflection. I will suggest resources for you to start your journey of change. Stay tuned for more and drop a comment if there are any topics you’d like me to cover!
