Congratulations on taking a step toward improving your health. I know that starting this process can be intimidating and, perhaps, scary. Finding a therapist that fits your needs is a bit like finding that “just right” pair of jeans. It is okay to shop around and try on a few before you find a fit that feels “just right”.
My name is Brandie Larson and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the state of Minnesota. I have a Master’s degree in social work from the University of New England and a Bachelor’s degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato, Minnesota. I have been providing counseling for individuals (age 3+), couples, and groups since 2011. I also have 12 years prior working with teens and young adults. I have worked with a large variety of issues over more than 20 years. The reality, however, is that you are the expert on you. My experience and education only provides me with some insight that can help you find solutions to reduce your stress.
Please feel free to message me. I feel that being able to connect with a therapist outside of the regular sessions is important in feeling supported and being able to overcome challenges, as they occur. I offer messaging, live chat, phone sessions and video sessions.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Brandie Larson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
There are multiple avenues in which I have tried to seek as a better way to alleviate the pain I go through for such a multitude of reasons. On this platform, I initially connected with multiple different therapists and none of them were as capable at reading the atmosphere of what I was saying. Brandie has always understood beyond the stories and the questions in a way that shows true understanding of the clients she’s working with. I cannot recommend her enough.
Brandie is great! Talking to her was like talking to a friend who just happened to be a therapist! That's what I need right now. Thanks, Brandie!
Brandie is an authentic and personable counselor whom I find easy to talk to, and with a wealth of professional knowledge.
I feel super fortunate to find an INFJ therapist like Brandie. My personality type is rare and I often feel misunderstood. I felt like Brandee was able to relate instantly and made me feel safe and confident in our relationship.
She’s the best! She’s relatable, personable and genuinely cares!
Each therapist I’ve had on here over the years has served a different purpose for different phases in my life. Brandi is a perfect fit for what I need right now and has helped me with things I didn’t think I needed help with.
Brandie has been great to work with and her knowledge with trauma along with her skills as a counselor have been incredibly helpful and insightful.
Brandie has been really helpful in listening and providing different perspectives on how to view the things I've been struggling with. Every session I come away with an insight or a new way to frame things. I highly recommend working with her.
Brandie has been amazing! She is sweet, supportive and helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a counselor who feels like a friend
I really like Brandie. For some reason my messages would not send to her for like 3 weeks. Today I was able to get through I think.
An excellent person to speak with from the beginning. Very thoughtful and understanding in her attitude which has made me progress a lot quicker than expected.
Brandie definitely is playing a vital role in helping me unpack and navigate my thoughts, feelings, issues, and anxieties. She’s doing an excellent job helping me deal with my depression, fears, and in helping me gain the confidence to not abuse substances anymore.
Very open minded and genuine. (About me: #LGBTQ+ #Depression #SubstanceAbuse #FamilyIssues #LifeChanges)
