MORE ABOUT BREE
"We need never be hopeless because we can never be irreparably broken." I want to help you fulfill your hopes to improve your life, relationships, and self. Call me for a free phone consultation and let's connect to get you the most out of therapy. I partner with clients in a non-judgmental and authentic setting to facilitate the changes you desire for your life and relationships.
I specialize in helping women and men struggling with low self-esteem, boundary setting, disordered eating, weight, and body issues, poor anger control, commitment, trust and intimacy issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
In couples therapy, I am passionate about working with those experiencing difficulties with communication, trust, power struggle, attachment, intimacy, and infidelity issues. Relationships are a huge cornerstone in one's life, and it's imperative that you form healthy ones. My aim is to heal and improve the areas you and your significant others struggle with.
If you are seeking a therapist that is supportive, proactive, motivational, and authentic, then we have good reason to talk. Bringing over 8 years of clinical experience, I use an integrative model of therapy mixing various techniques to tailor your treatment. I also offer special guidance to those seeking to incorporate their spirituality.
