Brooke has been awesome! She makes sure all of my concerns are addressed before the end of each session. She has really given me guidance, and has helped me to see the good in myself.

I have only worked with Brooke for a few weeks but I already feel so heard and understood. She challenges me and listens to me and gives me supplemental information that I can use and implement in my daily life. I am so grateful!

Brooke Malensek has a positive effect on my almost immediately. I spent 3 years with my previous therapist and I truly feel like I got most helpful advice in one session than I did in my of my previous therapy experience. I feel like I am not being judged at all, but rather empathized with a heard.

Brooke is the first therapist I've gone to in 6 years and I am so glad I found her. She is easy to talk to and gives great actionable advice.

Brooke is intuitive on her patient’s needs while still asking questions in order to connect with them and to further understand them. She was my crucial first step in healing from the multiple traumas I endured over the last couple of years. It is evident she sincerely cares and wants to help. Total professional while maintaining an attitude that makes her feel totally accessible. I trust her with a great deal. I’ve had other therapists in the past but none as unique and willing to help as she is. I highly recommend her regardless of the patient’s gender or age.

Brooke is a wonderful counselor. She listens, empathizes, and I always feel like she has my well being in mind. She's kind and gentle and I love that about her. I feel as if I'm talking to a dear friend or close relative and not a counselor. I trust her implicitly with my thoughts, ideas, and feelings. :)
