Ms. Bearese is super smart, inquisitive , challenging and reminds me of the basic logical answers that I often don’t think of because I’m too busy making things difficult. I really like her.

I always look forward to my sessions with Brianne! I often go in not totally confident on what I want to talk about, but she asks great guiding questions that unlock some thoughts that lead to great conversation. She has been there for me through some hard times and I feel like I can completely trust her. Being able to message throughout the week is also extremely helpful. I highly recommend Brianne!

While I did not get a chance to work with Brianne long, I really enjoyed my time with her. I sought out therapy to help me build overall confidence, offer me more help in regards to my anxiety, and find support for stress during my husband and my conception struggles. She provided me on our second session some worksheets and books on reframing my thoughts during challenging times where my anxiety flares. She also helped me develop life style additions and adjustments to help my body and mind maintain a calmer state for longer. Thanks for your help.
