Breanna "Bre" Spehn

LPC

About Me

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.

Education and Additional Training:
• Naropa University, Master of Arts, Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology
• University of Missouri St. Louis, Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Art Therapy
• Emotional Frequency Technique (EFT), Level I & II
• 500 Hour Holistic Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)
• Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

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.

Let's create a supportive space together that is unique to your needs as an individual.

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.

BetterHelp has been such a magnificent tool for me because of my social anxiety and my uncontrolled/unscheduled needs to communicate to my counselor. I can message Bre at any time and I know that she will respond as quickly as she can - always always within 24 hours which is amazing considering I am not her only client. She is kind, honest, and understanding. I’ve never felt so normal to have all of the struggles that I do but Bre makes it clear every single time I open up that I am doing great. She always offers the best techniques and advice for self love and working on the things that matter to me. She doesn’t avoid any topics I bring up even if they’re probably irrelevant. She is hands down the kindest and most efficient counselor I’ve met - and she is the first one I’ve worked with through BetterHelp. It’s amazing that it was such a great match the first time; but BetterHelp also can reconnect you with someone else if it isn’t such a great fit. I’m thankful that it took almost no time at all to find the counselor who fits the best with my needs. And I’m thankful for Bre for being the kind and patient person she is. She’s a fantastic counselor.

I’ve only had a couple sessions with Breanna and she really has helped me. She’s patient and listens and is encouraging. I would recommend Breanna.

My sessions with Bre have been great. Bre is extremely easy to talk to and gives me the space to express whatever I may be feeling that day. Bre's input has always been kind and unbiased , allowing me to view things from a different perspective. I would highly recommend Bre to a friend or colleague.
