About Me

Hello, my name is Brenda Canada, and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with Supervisor credentials, located in Ohio. I have years of experience in community and office-based counseling, as well as tele-therapy. I have worked with clients from Developmental Pediatrics and adolescents, through adults with a variety of presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, anger, trauma, phase of life changes, relationship issues, family issues and many more. I feel my proficiencies lie with teenagers, adults, and couple/ family counseling.

My approach leans toward solution focused therapy, as I believe that unless the stressful issues that we deal with every day are resolved, we cannot focus on our mental health, because we are going back into the same situations that cause the issues. I encourage my clients to find hope for the future, for without hope, we cannot continue. I use a combination of supportive, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, faith, and strengths based approaches based on your needs. I believe that counseling is a collaborative experience and I will work to help you identify your personal and mental health goals, while helping you utilize your strengths to live to your full potential.

Brenda is an amazing therapist. She is calm and very real. She forced me to make sense of things that did not make sense to me.

Brenda has been such a breath of fresh air. Since starting with her my mind has been able to settle a lot and I have been able to see things with a greater perspective. My relationship with my wife is also on the mend and we are working towards lasting changes.

What I like about Brenda is she understands me. This isn't something easy for me to talk about and she made me feel comfortable. It's still not the easiest thing to talk about, but I don't feel judged.

Brenda has been a big help in listening to me. She's taken the time to get to know what's going on in my life and in my past. I look forward to my time talking with her.
