Hello! I am excited that you have taken to opportunity to invest in yourself through seeking therapy through Betterhelp. Know that beginning this process takes high levels of wisdom and courage and will move your further along your journey.
My name is Brandi and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) in the state of Colorado. I have always had a passion for supporting and comforting others and have been able to take these passions and skills into my career. I graduated with an Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology from Stephen F. Austin State University (2009) and a Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary (2016.) I have been working in full-time clinical work since this time and specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, stress/anxiety, addiction, life stage adjustment, and relational issues.
Now that I have gotten my credentials out of the way, let me tell you about my approach to counseling and style within sessions. I am passionate about the fact that you are the expert on your own life. No one knows your story, your strengths, and your scars like you do and you are the driver for your own change. I have a warm counseling approach focused on getting to know your story and authentic self, making observations regarding what I see and challenging you to grow. I believe that each moment in our life is pieced together to create a beautiful stained glass story which is illuminated in all of its glory when light is shined upon it. I use tools from CBT, DBT ,and REBT in order to help stabilize emotions and challenge core beliefs and cognitive distortions which lead to shame.
I am interested in your entire story and who you are as a human being, whether that includes joy, sorrow, addiction, trauma, loneliness, or abundance, your story is important and it matters. I look forward to walking along side you!

Brandi was easy to talk to and offered me a safe space to discuss my feelings. She gave me a variety of tools to use outside of our sessions and homework to help maintain healthy routines.
My counselor has helped me have man breakthroughs, she is honest and helps me reflect on things that I can do for myself to make things better. She is also amazing at validating my feelings! I really appreciate all the work she does.
Makes me feel comfortable and understood.
Brandi is great! She’s helped me more than I’ve realized with confidence and self esteem levels.
So far Brandi has been incredibly helpful and empathetic. I feel like we're making headway with my issues and look forward to continuing to work with her.
Brandi Solanki has been every bit helpfully that I could have hoped for. She’s been helping me work through communication blocks, anxiety, and jealousy issues. I feel comfortable talking her and I feel she really pays attention to my concerns. Two thumbs up!
