Jennifer Brigman

(MS/EdS, LPC)

About Me

Hello and welcome to Betterhelp! My name is Jennifer. I have both Master’s and Education Specialist degrees with a concentration in Couples and Family counseling. I’ve worked as a licensed therapist in North Carolina for 11 years. I work frequently with difficult relationship dynamics whether in families or among romantic partners. I do quite a bit of work in trauma recovery, anxiety and stress reduction, resiliency building, and identity development. Mine is a holistic, positive, supportive approach that promotes self-awareness and the interruption of unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors that lead to being "stuck". I teach mindfulness, yogic interventions and encourage gratitude and curiosity in my clients!

I'm a good fit for those who are struggling to understand themselves or their relationships as well as those who continue to meet obstacles in creating the kind of lives and relationships they'd like. Presenting concerns may include PTSD/trauma symptoms, anxiety, depression, intense anger, difficulty coping or transitioning, challenges with relationships, and poor body image (with or without eating concerns).

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, beekeeping and chasing my two sons! I hope we are a good fit and look forward to connecting with you.

Jennifer Brigman has been an excellent counsellor for me. She helped immediately when I was in a crisis situation and since then I have opened up about all kinds of issues with her. I have a complex mental health situation and she has been very understanding and supportive. She is always there when I need her input and she has given me great strategies to deal with my mental health problems. Highly recommended!

Jennifer was of great help to me. She understood where I was coming from, worked great with helping me see perspectives and was sensitive, understanding and knowledgeable about a condition I have which complicated things. She has helped me change the way I think, process and go about many scenarios and was irreplaceable in my overall development. I would seek her consul and advice without hesitation. Thank you so much Jennifer.

Well I was really sceptic about the viability of counselling and I was really scared of going into someone’s chamber and talking face to face. Even over video call or something. But how well she handled the entire ordeal kinda really made me realise how useful therapy is. She is a really kind lady and truly listens to all your problems, sometimes even beyond the intended time. She is really amazing.

Jennifer is a great listener, offers good insight, and responds with thoughts and ideas specific to your situation. She’s also personable and easy to talk to. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

The best way to put Jennifer's practice would be a friend with the professional knowledge in the field.

Jennifer is amazing. After I write a long bombarded message full of chaos and being all over the place, Jennifer, with a few simple words and sentences diffuses chaotic situations to peace, clarity and serenity. Within a few lines, my perspective of the situation has been completely transformed. She always knows how to take the pressure off and make everything ok again. She is so adaptable to anything you say to her from giving amazing techniques, reading material, or simply validating your feelings or helping to understand yours and others feelings. And most of all she makes counseling fun! I’ve never been able to say that before!

From the past few days of our conversations, chatting with her makes me feel at ease. It really is precious to me that someone actively listens and tries to understand to what I have to say and to how I really feel. No one really does except her. My deepest regards.
