More about me

Licensing: MA, LPC
Years in Practice: 15
State: VA

I am a Licensed Professional counselor with over 15 years of experience as a therapist in a private practice and I am also a hypnosis coach. I have worked with a wide variety of clients, military, first responder, and other people from all walks of life. My clients were of various diagnosis: PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, to name a few.

I have a gentle but warm counseling style. I believe in seeing the world from my clients eyes and then work on expanding the world view. I treat client with respect, compassion, and empathy. I have several therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive behavioral, mindfulness, and humanistic. I do not believe in the "cookie cutter" approach, I will get to know you and work with you on the approach the works best for you.

I believe therapy can be life changing for the better and it will be the best decision you can make, not just with me but any therapist. You are not alone and there are options to help better your mental health.

I would enjoy working with you!

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.

I started seeing Brenda at the end of 2020. I did therapy once a year for a year after experiencing a death close to me. She helped me process is and learn how to continue life after such a traumatic experience. Now that I have my mental health tools I don't need sessions regularly, but every now and then I have an issue I want to discuss with Brenda and she always makes time and we pick up right where we left off. I cannot recommend her enough. I would not be where I am today without Brenda. I am forever grateful for her kindness, and support.

Brenda is the best. She has never made me feel pressured in anyway, I feel comfortable working with her, and she is knowledgeable. I have been through my fair share of therapists and she has definitely created a safe space for me.

I am so grateful to have been connected with Brenda. She creates a safe space for me to share my emotions and never judges me. She helps me understand why I feel the way I do, and teaches me ways to cope. She always encourages me and I look forward to our sessions.

Brenda is amazing! She makes me understand why I am feeling the way I do and teaches me ways to break the habits that contribute to me feeling bad. She is so warm, friendly, knowledge and respectful. I consider myself lucky to have found her.
