Hi, my name is Breo'na, my counseling style is welcoming, non-judgmental, and interactive. I firmly believe that people are experts regarding themselves and realize the importance of meeting individuals, as clients exactly where they are in life. My guiding technique is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on the rationale of an individual’s cognitive beliefs and distorted thoughts as well as the combination of Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered Therapy. I have experience working with clients that struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues.
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also a licensed in North Carolina as a clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC). I attended Wright State University located in Dayton, Ohio where I was born and raised. There I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2011) and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (2014). I strive to make a positive impact on others, while guiding them to recognize their ability to become the person they desire to be, through any given circumstance, hardship, or experience. I have found that my work as a counselor for the past 9 years has allotted me the opportunity to do just that!
It should be said that there is never a dull moment in therapy with me, as I enjoy laughing, making others laugh, and creating an organic and relaxed environment for my clients.

Breo’na is exactly what I needed in a therapist. She taps into areas that I haven’t been able to talk with a therapist before. She is genuine, kind, knowledgeable, and provides self-growth tools that fit my preferences. Her style of therapy is just what I need!

Breo'na is extremely understanding, easy to talk to and very kind. She always takes time to check in at the start of every session. She even checks in via text throughout the week which has made me feel supported and cared for. She is also very funny and finds a way to make me laugh during most sessions which is important to me. It's clear that Breo'na pays close attention to people she works with and always has someone's their best interest at heart.
