I am Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Mississippi with 15 years of experience working as a clinical therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger issues, DMDD, Conduct Disorder and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or physical or emotional abuse. I have experience in teaching at the college level and helping those with family and marital issues. I taught Couple Counseling which explored the dynamics of marital and couple relationships from a clinical research perspective and I also taught Marriage and Family Therapy classes with a focus on a systems perspective, including history, core concepts, and seminal figures.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Brenda Drake. 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.
She is amazing. Makes me feel ok
She listens and rhats what I meeded
Brenda has been extremely helpful during my transition to Mississippi. Navigating a new job, new place that is away from home could have been a lot harder without her help.
I always enjoy my sessions with Ms. Frelix as they are very non anxious for me and I am able to share freely what my thoughts are in a manner where I don't feel judged. She is amazing and I actually looking forward to therapy whereas before with other therapist I didn't connect well with them.
An amazing therapist.
Brenda has been greatly helpful in her sessions. She’s completely understanding in our conversations with empathy and provides good guidance in dealing with topics such as grief. I do recommend her for anyone who needs the assistance or who are going through the grieving stages.
Very helpful and connects with you . She made me comfortable in opening up in our first session and helped my wife and me communicate with clarity.
Ms. Brenda is amazing. She’s helped me more than any other therapist has before. She’s been supportive and considerate when sharing my feelings. I can’t refer her enough.
Brenda is such a great counselor. She listens and knows exactly what to say. She is great at what she does!
From our very first session, she has been genuinely concerned and eager to help. Brenda, has helped me transition in some areas and think about things in different ways. She always responds in a timely manner and she truly makes me feel comfortable with speaking on my past issues. She has been a great match for me thus far, and I look forward to continuing to work with her and continuing to see my growth as a result of it.
Ms. Frelix is an amazing listener and has been very helpful in trying to give me the tools and resources I need to help myself and my situation. I do not feel judged by her- instead, I feel she tries to understand me and my situation. She is quick with responses to my messages and is very encouraging.
Ms. Frelix is very easy to talk to and get understanding from. She makes you feel comfortable when venting
