Brenda always seems to understand what I'm going through and provides such helpful guidance.
Gives good life tips
Brenda is the best.
Brenda is very caring compassionate and knowledgeable. I have been able to open up like I never have before!
My therapist is amazing
I appreciate that Brenda has been extremely supportive of me since our initial meeting. She had a book recommendation that I obtained the book immediately. It has been a great supplement to our counseling sessions. I am happy that we are paired together. She is great. :)
Brenda has been very helpful to me. I’d recommend her to anyone. She’s a very intelligent and compassionate therapist.
She's a wonderful person and great therapist. She's helped me a lot in just one session. She's taught me a few methods to combat my anxiety and supplied me with CBT worksheets. I recommend her.
She really listens and is very empathetic
Great therapist. Really helped me overcome my anxiety. I'd recommend Brenda to a friend. Thankyou Brenda :)
Oh, Brenda has been wonderful and answers all my questions - her experience is super valuable
One of a kind amazing therapist
So far, my meetings with Brenda have been very helpful. She listens, offers guidance & suggestions & never makes me feel like my thoughts/feelings are invalid.
Brenda is top knotch. Super supportive and a true pleasure to speak with.
She’s a wonderful woman who’s helped me a ton during the few meetings we’ve had.
Ms. Brenda has been an absolute blessing in my life. She completely understands my needs, gives techniques and things to work on and think on for the upcoming week. She is compassionate, caring and realistic. I highly recommend.
In a very short time, Brenda has facilitated a return to hopefulness for me. She is kind, caring, and gentle in her approach. She is the right therapist at the right time for me. As I address long term trauma, and short term goals to resume post-pandemic life, her guidance and confidence building is essential.
She is great!
She listen, help and respect the patient.
I don't know how to complement someone who reach and help. All I can say she is THE BEST
