This is where I’m supposed to write about myself and assure you through my extensive experience and education that “Brianna is absolutely qualified to help me change my life.” And if that’s what you’re looking for, I can send you my resume if you would like. But I believe one of my greatest assets as a therapist is something you have as well – my humanness and understanding. Because once we peel back the layers, the years of education, the books read, certifications received – once that’s all stripped back, what ultimately connects us is our ability to understand each other on a human level. Through this connection, change is sparked.
“The only permission, the only validation, and the only opinion that matters in our quest for greatness is our own.” –Dr. Steve Maraboli
If you haven't sensed already, I'm not your basic therapist, I believe in being true to yourself even if it does not ascribe to the prescribed limits of society, profession, or even loved ones. I believe if celebrating your individuality. As your therapist that is exactly what I would do, celebrate you. Through this, we can work as a team to help you obtain your goals, overcome negative thoughts, habits, beliefs, and kick life's A**. 🙂
I view therapy as a road trip, wherein you are the driver. My role is, passenger and I help you to reach your destination. Sometimes that's providing guidance through google maps, others it's finding the best tunes to listen to on the journey, sometimes it's making sure you stay awake so we don't crash, and others just being there so you don't feel alone. My goal and role is to help you reach your destination. It won't always be an easy journey but as long as your willing to keep your foot on the petals I'll be there to support.
I’ve worked alongside some great practitioners in a variety of settings who made an impact on my life, much of which I try to pass along. Through private practice, I work with clients to become the best version of themselves. I realize that some clients need more intensive and or non-traditional interventions to foster transformation. Thus More Than Basic Therapy was formed to offer expansive services outside of the norm traditional therapeutic practices.
