Brandes Montgomery

(MS, LPC)

About Me

I believe the strength for change already lies within you and, through the therapeutic process, you can grow and find balance between the mind, body and spirit. I work with individuals from a holistic and person-centered approach. By drawing from these practices, I can help treat the root of the suffering rather than just focusing on the lingering symptoms. I also like to use Emotionally-Focused techniques to help loosen the grip of difficult emotions and cultivate inner peace.

I am passionate about working with individuals that are experiencing emotional distress, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, trauma and relationship difficulties. Together, we can identify goals, help to foster insight and learn healthy ways to cope with life challenges.

I have been working in the field for 10 years in various settings before settling in private practice. I am comfortable working with many clients and I look forward to working with you and together we can find balance and peace.

Very satisfied!

Brandes was fantastic. She really understood what my problem was and provided the compassion I needed to show myself. She helped my find the motivation to try instead of feeling stuck in a pattern of self criticism.

I like Brandes. Concise, clever, direct and reading between the lines. I tend to forget about this but she's always checking on me very nicely and has given me plenty to think for in our conversations.

Brande is so knowledgeable and insightful into so many issues. When I barely knew what my own focus needed to be to navigate many issues I've been having in my relationship, her expertise and intuition knew exactly where to guide me not only through her words but through her many recommendations into books to read and other resources that could help give me just the answers I was looking for!

Brandes was very kind and listened to everything that I wrote. She acknowledged things even if they were the same issues repeated over and over again. She still took the time to give me good feedback and things to think about.
