Things stacking up? Feeling overwhelmed?
Whatever your situation or problem, you do not have to stay stuck. Even if it wakes you up in the middle of the night, it is likely you can learn something meaningful from it. There is hope.
I am a licensed professional counselor and I help people find solutions to their problems. Finding the right solution is like a mystery investigation. There are clues and they fit together to form the picture of your life. I use creative arts, such as writing, movies and poetry to make our relationship personal and unique. This approach is not found in a one-size, fits-all clinic. My clients find, "and they all lived happily after" when they embrace this holistic, non-judgmental work toward having the life of their dreams.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. No problem is too small. If it bothers you, that's enough.
I offer a holistic approach to treatment. This could include traditional talk therapy, assessments, journaling, dream analysis, writing, viewing movies, reading/writing poetry, learning mindfulness meditation and using other creative art forms.

Dr. Brawley has been very helpful, and her advice and encouragement helped me grow immensely as a person. If I think back on how miserable I felt a year ago vs now - the difference is astonishing!

I have been seeing Dr Brawley for about a year now. We’ve built such an amazing relationship. Looking back over the last year, I dont think I would’ve made it through without her. She helped me process a lot of my feelings, she listened to me. She supported me through a very difficult year and I really appreciate all she has done to help me! She is a wonderful therapist/friend!

I am so happy that I have Dr. Brawley as my therapist! I could not have been paired with a more suitable match. She is an excellent listener, as well as a compassionate and patient person! She understands your struggles and offers kind words, support, great advice, as well as a good laugh or two. I always look forward to our sessions and am excited to grow and develop with her help and guidance!
