Brenda validates me in an authentic way. I feel I can trust her expertise when I have trouble trusting myself. She is both wise and gentle in approach. It was important for me to have a therapist with real world experience and not just education credentials. Brenda meets the bill. I can honestly say that I have been better for the wear making it through challenging life transitions. …holidays….children getting older…and touched but didn’t dwell on the past.

Brenda is awesome. I was really nervous about starting an online therapy. Wondering how it would work, would we click. From the first meeting we did. She listens, has helpful information. It has worked out well for me.
