Brianna's therapy philosophy involves utilizing creativity for emotional expression, as well as catharsis. With her specialty in art therapy, she uses art therapy techniques to help clients communicate their inner thoughts and feelings. This often elicits insight that the client might not have otherwise become aware of. Another benefit of art therapy is simply to find healing and resolution in the very act of making art. Brianna prides herself in being trauma informed. Her therapeutic approach is integrative, and she incorporates theories such as cognitive behavioral, client-centered, strengths-based therapies.
In her free time, Brianna enjoys making art, cooking/baking and camping with her husband.
