About me

Life can be challenging at times and reaching out for help can be difficult. It takes a lot of courage to reach out, so I'm glad that you're taking this step on your journey. I'm Brooke and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor. I hold a double BS degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice (Forensic Investigations), an MS degree in Psychology, and have completed extensive graduate work in Criminal Justice and Community Agency Counseling.

I've been in this field since 2003 and have worked in various settings with most ages and backgrounds. I have an eclectic approach to counseling, which means that I use a variety of principles and philosophies in order to create the ideal treatment to meet your specific needs. I am warm, nonjudgmental, supportive, and encouraging. I want to understand your past and help you cope with the present in order to help you empower yourself so you can have a happy and fulfilling future. I look forward to working with you :)

Brooke is an amazing therapist. She listens with an empathetic ear and truly understands what you are saying. Brooke sends helpful tips and tricks on how to overcome any issues I raise in our sessions. She also checks in every Monday to see how my weekend went. I couldn’t make progress without the support and expertise she brings to the table. Brooke is the best therapist I have ever had.

Brooke has been a great addition to my weekly and or daily personal growth. She asked and pointed questions but yet is kind and understanding and other issues. So I’m really looking forward to continuing on with our weekly counseling sessions.
