Briana believes therapy can provide a safe place for communication, establishment of goals and incorporation of the skills or interventions needed to create a bridge towards healthier relationships.  

My passion for helping others also influences my desire to continue to grow and learn new therapeutic interventions to provide the best service possible for clients and their families.

Since 2005, I have been working as a Therapist at the Hennepin County Home School, a juvenile residential correctional facility.  During this time I have gained experience in interventions to manage anxiety, aggression, trauma, depression, substance abuse and family discord. 

Compassion for others from a young age has fostered my ability to connect with others.  I honor the courage and power of choice it takes to attend therapy and strive to provide a safe place for communication.  Skills in various therapeutic techniques increase my ability to provide the most appropriate services for each client.
