About Me

Hello there!
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. I look forward to hearing from you, and for the possibility of becoming a part of your journey.
I have over five years of experience as a medical social worker and I have worked with clients who have chronic health conditions, and new health concerns. In addition, I’ve also worked in a local domestic violence agency where I provided children and adults with therapy and education.
I tailor each individual therapy session to meet each client’s unique need, and I’m here to make a positive impact on your life by listening, validating and working with you to achieve your goals. I use many techniques from both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness.
On a more personal note, I am the oldest of four girls, and I have an identical twin who is one-minute younger. I grew up on the north side of Chicago’s suburbs, and when I’m not working, I am usually in my kitchen trying new recipes, going on walks, and binge watching the latest shows.
I wish you the best and I look forward to meeting you.
Best,
Brianna

Brianna is heaven sent. She goes with my flow that often changes week to week and she is always prepared somehow. I’m over joyed that I was able to find her and wish I could give everyone I love an hour of her time.

Brianna has been extremely understanding and very compassionate in listening to me vent, a lot. She’s been starting to give me tools to help calm my mind and make me feel in control again.
