About Me

Hi. My name is Andrea. I'm a Mental Health Counselor licensed in Massachusetts with 7 years experience as a therapist. I began my career working in an inpatient dual diagnosis unit. I simultaneously worked as a therapist for the federal government proving therapy to men and women looking for guidance on making good life decisions. For several years, I ran an outpatient clinic on my own and was fortunate enough to work with clients ranging in age from 5-68. Needless to say, my experience as a therapist has been vast and includes people from all walks of life!

For the entirety of my career, I've done initial evaluations for all of my clients, in addition to clients being seen by other therapists. This has given me the opportunity to learn about and work with an array of clients with many different presenting problems. Some of specialties include depression, anxiety, self esteem, communication issues, and relationship problems. In addition to these specialties, I have worked with many people who have suffered traumas due to abuse or other factors.

My counseling style is collaborative. It's important to me that the people I work with feel like they're being heard and that therapy is being tailored to their needs. I do not believe that therapy is a one size fits all so I will work hard to figure out what works best for you instead of providing generic responses and interventions. You can expect that I will be honest, friendly, and supportive during our time together. I don't believe in judging others as I recognize that we are all human and that judgment only interferes with our ability to learn more about ourselves and others. I use cognitive behavioral approaches but I will tailor my approach to meet your needs so there is a greater change of success.

I have been providing online therapy for some time and find that this is the best way to provide access to mental health for everyone. I have found that this platform allows people to share their thoughts, reflect, and receive fast responses that just isn't possible with traditional face to face therapy. We no longer have to wait weeks for appointments in order to start working on feeling better.

Andrea is kind and compassionate. She listened to what I had to say without judgement and made me feel valued. I hope that others will benefit from her expertise as much as I had.

Written by A.D. on Sep 29, 2017 after counseling with Andrea for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

I came here seeking help with anxious, obsessive thoughts that I had been dealing with for four years. Andrea read everything I wrote to her, responding to everything and asking things for me to consider and analyze. She gave me suggestions and specific worksheets to help manage those thoughts and replace them with realistic ones. To keep this short, she has been a great example of what a counselor should be, there to support and guide me through figuring things out for myself using her professional knowledge and unbiased perspective.

Andrea has been great! I have had a lot of ups and downs and not only has she given me advice and asked me questions that made me really get to know myself better, but she showed genuine concern and interest for what I was going through.

I love Andrea; she doesn't make me feel uncomfortable in anyway and she doesn't judge me in anything I say. This helps me be more open with her and not hide anything, which helps her help me better. She gives me excellent advice, and I also like how I hear back from her within 24 hours!

I spent a little under a month talking with Andrea about my sleeping issues. She was very informative, helpful, and reliable in the fact that she always answered me within a day. I ended our sessions with a much better and more positive outlook on my future and highly recommend her to anyone!

Andrea has been a great therapist for me. I feel that she always gets the message of what I'm trying to say, even when I feel that I'm not expressing myself in a clear way. She is very responsive and addresses my concerns specifically and in a straight-forward way. I feel that she is easy-going, never judgmental, and a great listener.

Andrea is patient, kind and understanding. She helped me recognize my perfectionism and how I can deal with it. She is truly amazing!

Written by N.A. on May 25, 2017 after counseling with Andrea for 3 weeks

I've been impressed that Andrea has allowed me to focus on what I want to focus on. I've had face to face therapists in the past and I often feel that they have an agenda that is not mine. Also, it is liberating to be free of body language messages and voice intonation that can color meaning and trigger mood changes. The absolute best part is to have access at will. So important since I am able to share what's on my mind in real time. This is been a tremendous breath of fresh air and a sound platform for positive change.

Andrea, is super- fun and supportive and speaking to her is a joy. Would be lost without her!

Andrea is the mirror I need to look at myself now. She asks questions that keep me busy for a couple of days and help me reorganize the turmoil of feelings and thoughts I have inside. She is respectful and wise in her comments.

I like that Andrea would make me feel like I'm being heard, she seems to be a caring and nice person. I am glad I got to speak to her. She has helped me feel better after how I was feeling.

I have never sought help before and I was afraid to take my first steps towards actually getting better. Andrea Brant has been a perfect fit and she has helped me in ways that I thought could never be helped. BetterHelp has done an amazing job matching me a up with a perfect counselor. The road to a better me has never looked more promising.

Written by T.E. on Apr 28, 2017 after counseling with Andrea for 3 weeks relationship, and intimacy-related

Andrea is awesome!!!
She has been extremely helpful in discussing issues I'm struggling with and in my relationship, guiding me through what and why things might be happening and getting to underlying problems that should be addressed. also what paths of action to improve my situation might be best to take. Andrea made the transition back into counseling after leaving my previous therapist very smooth. She is up to date on my progress and has taken on helping me with a very easy comfortable manner. Working with Andrea is like discussing your problems with a close friend who actually knows what they're talking about and can help u reach real improvement.
I hope to send Andrea a save-the-date to my wedding in Bali in the near future ;)

Andrea has been a great help for me. She's very professional and you can see she really knows what she's doing, without 'digging' into you in an obvious way, which helps to relax and be perfectly honest. She's really been there for me whenever I needed and she helps me looking into myself and figure things out without any judgement, in a natural way that makes me feel that I came up with solutions by myself. Thank you, Andrea! You're excellent.
