Hi, my name is Brenda Thayer and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been in the mental health field for 22 years, LPC for five years and Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor for 9 years. I have recently become a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor.
I believe in meeting the person where they are at, helping them reach their potential. I believe in treating the whole person for overall wellness and striving for reaching one’s goals and values in life.
I use an eclectic approach; cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy fused with motivational interviewing. I have experience using rational emotive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy and solution focused therapy.
What you can expect from sessions include; questions so that I can get to know you better and to see how I can best help you, nonjudgmental and compassionate support, and energy to help you see your potential.
