More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 8
State: VA

Hello! My name is Chrissy Bruso, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who loves people, the beach, the mountains, spending time outdoors, working out, healthy food, a good cup of cold brew coffee, being a wife and mom, reading and finding ways to help others in any way I can. I have had a variety of careers, including horse farm manager and riding instructor, legal secretary, stay-at-home mom, helping families adopt children and counseling individuals with autism and related challenges as well as their families. I work from a strengths-based approach, and I love empowering my clients to learn more about themselves and grow into their full potential.

My counseling style is honest and kind. I will give you tools to help you connect with your most authentic self in order to live an abundant life. I am also a believer in healthy families, so I can help you navigate family relationships and challenges, understand yourself better and employ boundaries that strengthen your relationships with others and yourself. As a mother, I am very passionate about seeing moms live balanced and centered lives. All too often, moms place an inordinate amount of pressure on themselves to be everything to everyone. I love walking with moms to help them set healthy boundaries and put meaningful self care into place so that they can enjoy life and parenthood.

My approach includes person-centered, family systems, structural therapy and cognitive behavior therapy. I enjoy building strong relationships with my clients, and I believe that together is always better than alone. I check messages in here usually once per day, Monday through Friday, and I respond as soon as I can. I will respond to your message within the same day if it is received during my business hours (9a-5p EST) or the next business day if received after hours.

Thank you for reaching out, and I look forward to working together!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Chrissy has been working with me off and on since 2019 and I could not ask for a better counselor. Anytime I take a break and return I always request to link back up with her and she's always been there. Thank you for what you do Chrissy. It feels really nice to talk to someone who knows me so well. You are a blessing. I have recommended better help to several people and have even had a few of them give it a try themselves.

Meeting Chrissy is one of my blessing in my life. Still tough time going through in my life and God leads me little by little. And she always reminds that.

Chrissy was understanding, compassionate, and kind. I didn’t feel rush like I have in other therapy sessions in the past. Look forward to meeting with her again in the near future.

I have had such an amazing experience. I have been talking about my positive experience with EVERYONE! Two of my friends have joined BetterHelp after hearing me gush about C. Brush. I adore so many things about my therapy with her. However, the top applause goes to her ability to provide materials/ literature to challenge me and allow me to stretch and grow.

Chrissy has helped me address fears of yet another medical procedure with support and measures to help me logically process. She also checks on me when I don't follow up on homework. So glad I found Betterhelp as I can connect from any location and between sessions.

Chrissy has been the biggest blessing to me over the several months we have talked. Her wisdom has guided me through some of the toughest seasons of my life, and I couldn't be more grateful. She is amazing and the best asset to Better Help!

I have been working with Chrissy for several months now, and have had such a good experience with her. She helped me navigate my way through a really rough period. She helps me see things more clearly. She is giving me tools to help me manage my anxiety and depression. I cannot recommend her ENOUGH! She is helping me change my life.

Chrissy is an amazing person and counselor. She is the 2nd counselor I have tried on this site and I have continued to renew my membership and talk to her for months now. I am extremely grateful for the guidance she has given me and the ways she has helped me through some very difficult moments in my life the past few months. Chrissy is an amazing part of the Better Help community, and I just thought that everyone should know that, and appreciate her as much as I have. Thank you Chrissy and Better Help.
