Individual psychotherapy can be a great opportunity for you to grow self-awareness, overcome obstacles, & create rituals that build resiliency while unlocking your true potential.



Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly researched and effective psychotherapy designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories and other distressing life experiences in the brain.


With Adjunctive EMDR therapy, you can continue to receive treatment from your primary therapist while  receiving specialized EMDR services by Brianna. Brianna can utilize the EMDR Standard Protocol or use one of the EMDR Early Interventions (EIs): Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP) or Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP). 


Where you look affects how you feel. Brainspotting (BSP) locates relevant eye positions in your field of vision to access, process, and resolve core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.
