Breanna practiced for over fifteen years in various educational settings providing therapy, creating educational workshops and conducting psychological assessments of students with disabilities. She also previously trained in various private practice psychotherapy settings working with adult clients of all ages presenting with a range of life concerns. Breanna works with all ages to help break through self-doubt and indecision to empower healing from negative memories, trauma, unhealthy relationship dynamics and life situations. Therapy can be empowering as you narrate and develop a life story and can create the opportunity to bring unconscious patterns to conscious awareness. The role of our culture, relationships and family dynamics often plays out in repeating patterns and feeling stuck. The supportive healing therapeutic process can ease the pain from negative memories, trauma, unhealthy relationships, and difficult life situations. With therapy, many can decrease impulsivity, increase insight, strengthen their intuition and learn how the body remembers words, patterns, feelings, relationships and life events. Breanna also offers psychological assessment for children and adults in the areas of ADHD, intellectual functioning, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, executive functioning, and the impact of emotional dysregulation on cognitive functioning. She can also provide evaluations for those seeking test accommodations.
Breanna is committed to working with clients of all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
