About Me

I’m glad you’re here. You are looking for a way to feel better, cope better, and you’re taking steps. Maybe I am the one to walk this path with you.
My name is Brenda Truax and I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I’ve been serving individuals, couples, and families for 23 years. So many issues have been laid before me, and we always find a way to relieve some of the stress, doubts, and fears. You might be dealing with identity, depression, grief, anxiety, sexuality, relationships, trauma, parenting, or work issues. By using proven methods I can help you find new ways of dealing with these issues. The answers are already inside you, it’s just that often there is other noise in the way.
My style is laid back, accepting, and open to your truth. I find myself often laughing with clients in our sessions. After all, life can be ironic!
Let me know if I can help you learn more about yourself, your perspectives, and your interactions with the world.
It will be good to hear from you.

Brenda is genuine and cool. She connects on a real level and meets you where you’re at without judgement and with a smile and a real response to help navigate emotions and situations. She’s like a friend here to listen and offer valid, effective advise on how to handle whatever issue (or just daily stuff) may arise. Super happy to have her and would absolutely recommend her.

Wonderful experience, I have been in therapy for years and have never connected with another therapist as easily as I did Brenda!

In just two sessions, I believe Brenda is truly understanding who I am. She makes me feel comfortable opening up about things and always has some feedback/questions for me that really cause me to develop insight I never had considered.
