Hi, I’m Bre, preferred pronouns she/her/hers. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Oregon, with over six years of experience. I have worked with individuals of all ages, with majority of my focus presently on young adults.
Within sessions, I take the approaches of client-centered and strengths-based counseling while remaining rooted in mindfulness. I have gained the insight and skills to show up fully for myself and others in session. I have cultivated self-awareness through meditation classes and retreats that have aided my own self-discovery of inherent compassion in order to guide others with humility and grace.

• University of Missouri St. Louis, Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Art Therapy

Diversity and inclusion are crucial for me in my personal life, and in my career as a therapist. While working from a social justice lens, I invite conversation regarding bias, privilege, and power.

I truly believe I would be able to be finding the solace in my chaotic life if Bre was not helping me to sharpen my mental tool belt. I feel safer with her than any other therapist I've worked with and never felt so seen.

Bre has been a welcoming and supportive presence from the very beginning of my therapy sessions with her. She was exactly the kind of support I needed when I found her and she has been great beyond the initial visit. She responds to messages quickly and it makes me feel heard

I’ve had multiple therapists and Bre is by far the best fit for me. She is kind, considerate and thoughtful. And she also doesn’t hesitate to hold me accountable in a thoughtful way. I am very grateful to have been placed with her on BetterHelp.

Very personable, willing to listen, and see things from your perspective . Learned things about myself in 2 sessions that I never realized through months with other therapists.
