About me

You can change your life. You can become the person that you want to be. Sometimes it takes hard work, usually it means being uncomfortable. But if you are willing to do that work, you can meet your goals. I would love the opportunity to support you on your journey.

I have spent over 20 years committed to this belief and committed to helping individuals along their way. My true passion is helping those who have a history of trauma and helping them learn how it has impacted their lives. Empowering individuals take their power back from whatever it is that they have survived. Trauma is such a vague word, and many things can fall into that category. No trauma is too severe, or too insignificant.

I am a licensed counselor in Pennsylvania. My Bachelor’s and master’s degrees are both in Professional Counseling from Toccoa Falls College and Liberty University. I have spent the majority of my career working with adults from all walks of life. Making people feel safe and comfortable is utmost priority for me. I have an eclectic approach using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Person Centered. I have trauma informed and focused on all my interactions no matter what approach is being used. Additionally, I am certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy.

In my personal life I am a wife, mom, stepmom, dog mom, and survivor myself. I love to cook, travel, and use creativity around my house.

I look forward to having an opportunity to work with you.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Miriam Brisley. 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.

She cares plain and simple, and we almost play off of one another. I appreciate the concern she's shown the past 9 months.

Only reason the answers were "mostly" is because we are so new in working together.

She is amazing! She listens and tries to help with everything I write, she responds to everything. I've seen many therapist and she is honestly I the best one I have ever seen!
