About me

Hi, welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read about me. My name is Bridgette a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in California. I have been a therapist in various capacities over the past 10 years including, but not limited to working as a school counselor, in a residential treatment facility, community mental health, and private practice. I'm really glad that you have taken this step to feeling better and I am excited to start this journey with you.

A little about therapy with me and my approach is just that of trying to meet individuals where they are at and follow your lead and pace. Some of my favorite approaches and techniques includes CBT, DBT, Art, Relational and Narrative therapies. If at anytime, you need me to be more pushy or are looking for a different approach please know I'm always open to feedback as I want this to be the best space, most beneficial, and therapeutic process for you. Different approaches work differently for individuals, so sometimes I need to make adjustments based on feedback received. Given that this is an online platform, there are times when people forget that I'm here, but I will reach out and prompt or attempt to prompt a conversation. If I do reach out, please don't ever feel like you have to respond and don't feel guilty if you don't. This is your space and journey, and I'm here to support you in whatever way works for you. Please know, I will never be offended by good or bad feedback as it is the best way for our work to grow and for me to ensure that you are getting what you came here for! Lastly, I look forward to working with you and starting this journey. If you have any additional questions that I haven't answered, please don't hesitate to ask.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for BRIDGETTE HERRMANN. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Throughout the many years of my mental health struggles, I have been with 10+ therapists of varying qualities. Some were good, some were
incompetent, but none of them have felt as perfect for me as Bridgette. She is a true all-star, and as someone who suffers from spurts of anxiety and sadness, I always feel inside of a safe space when I talk to her. She makes things very easy to understand and is super flexible with her approaches. As someone with an unpredictable schedule, she is extremely accomodating to that.

Most importantly though, my mental health has made tremendous progress from our sessions. I've finally been able to live a normal life again, and I don't even take medication! I'm not going to act like it's been a perfect ride, as there's been a few bumps along the way. Still, I couldn't recommend her more!

I was going down a consistent hole due to life and the environment I was in before starting Betterhelp. Starting therapy for the first time was alittle scary but I was also excited.
That being said, I'm really glad that Bridgette Herrmann is my therapist. She listens and reacts really professionally but also feels like a friend. She also gives good advices/techniques and genuinely makes you feel validated. So far, she has helped me feel sane and important which is priceless. I would recommend her 100%!

Coming from having bad experience from my past on seeking counseling/therapy etc. it wasnt a good one. Took me over a decade to try again. As i held everything all in thinking i got it. Hide it all and smile for everyone.
We can only carry so much within. It was tearing me inside. That’s how I here. I know I needed to help myself & heal but wanted to find that core that has a hold on me and let it go.
Bridgette is by far very understanding and thoroughly with everything.
I hope you all get that help too.
