Brandi is great! She's helped me develop a ton of healthy techniques to use day-to-day and made some really helpful suggestions to help me manage my mood - she's a great listener but also knows when to offer advice or her thoughts.

Brandi is a joy! I feel very comfortable with her and don’t hesitate to tell her something and I love that she encourages me and shows me that my mind isn’t actually against me. I have really gotten so much from my sessions with her. She communicates if she is running behind and understands when my schedule makes me have to cancel a session. I am very happy with being matched with her.
