Brenna is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. She received her Master’s degree in Counseling from Northwestern University and her Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of New Haven.
Brenna works with children, adolescents, and young adults who struggle with a variety of presenting concerns including: mood disorders, anxiety, life transitions, interpersonal concerns, trauma, self-esteem, and identity. She draws primarily from psychodynamic and family systems frameworks in her work with clients, while also incorporating elements of cognitive behavioral therapy in teaching skills and techniques to help clients cope. Brenna takes a collaborative approach in working with all clients, and believes parents/caregivers can be partners in facilitating growth.
As a clinician, Brenna relies heavily on the therapeutic relationship, and so prioritizes creating a non-judgmental and supportive space for clients to express themselves fully. She works to understand her clients’ strengths and vulnerabilities, ultimately helping them improve their capacity for acceptance, change, and growth.
