Brandi specializes in working with older adolescents and adults who struggle with issues related to complex trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, anger, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, grief/loss, perfectionism, substance abuse, and relationship distress.

She enjoys working with individuals of varying backgrounds and abilities, including those who identify as highly sensitive (HSPs), and is LGBTQIA+ friendly.

As we discuss presenting problems and life events that trigger emotional pain, you will be invited to notice any physiological (body-based) responses that occur during the session.

Doing so allows access to the natural survival impulses (fight, flight, freeze) that became thwarted during the original event(s). There is then an opportunity to fully process and complete these survival responses (through the use of movement, vocalization, imagery, boundary exploration exercises, etc.), leading to a discharge/release of any stuck survival energy.
Sessions are typically 50 minutes. 90-minute sessions are also available. Speak with Brandi if you are interested in scheduling a 90-minute session.
Life happens! Just let Brandi know that you need to cancel or reschedule a session prior to 24 hours of the scheduled service time, otherwise you will be responsible for the session fee.
In-person visits are available on Thursdays and Fridays in Rancho Bernardo. Telehealth sessions are available Monday through Friday.
