Hi, I’m Brianna. I work with individual adults on many different presenting problems. I specialize in helping people from all backgrounds recover from high-control environments (ie. narcissistic abuse, religious abuse, living in the world in a marginalized body/brain) to build confidence and learn to trust themselves.
In my therapeutic practice, I am person-centered and my work is most often informed by mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, non-violent communication, internal family systems (IFS-informed), acceptance & commitment (ACT-informed), interpersonal neurobiology, somatic experiencing, and clinical guided visualization.
My approach is two-pronged. I work to: (1) equip you with practical knowledge, tools, and skills to cope effectively with life and address burnout and (2) connect you to your rich inner world, made up of many parts. Our parts are often in conflict with one another, and I help guide your wise Self to be the trusted leader of all your parts.
A little more about me…
- I received my master’s degree in counseling and human services and my bachelor’s degree in interpersonal and intercultural communication, both from University of Colorado.
- Before becoming a therapist, I studied and taught interpersonal and intercultural communication, worked as an ESL teacher in South Korea, and was a school counselor in Colorado Springs.
- I am politically progressive and actively healing from my own experiences as a neurodivergent (neurospicy!) womxn raised in Evangelical Fundamentalism. I have found joy and power in learning to love and trust myself. I am honored to accompany fellow humans to do the same.
- In my free time, I love going for walks with my partner, our young child, and our black lab, Kate the dog. I also enjoy playing board games, watching Bake Off, and reading novels.
