My name is Brennan and I am a Master’s level clinician with a degree in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University and an anticipation of independent licensure in 2025. As a trauma-informed psychotherapist, I appreciate how core wounds, and the emotional distress surrounding them, can show up in adulthood and prevent us from living our happiest lives. My focus is on helping individuals to realize their power to feel safe in regulating emotions. In my work, I utilize approaches such as CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), and SE (Somatic Experiencing), and enjoy the practice of destigmatizing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, thereby assisting my clients in developing self-compassion, a key ingredient for growth and change.
My therapeutic approach is also client-centered and collaborative, meaning we go at your pace which may help you to feel safe in exploring your curiosity into challenging interpersonal patterns or sources of conflict, as well as sharing your most difficult stories. Together, we will find functional regulating resources and coping strategies to manage anxiety, panic attacks, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, as well as PTSD and Complex-PTSD responses. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you on your journey.
