Brean’a practices from a relational cultural theory perspective, which encompasses collaboration alongside clients to examine and re-learn healthy interpersonal skills such as empathy, compassion, boundaries and adult attachment styles and how that impacts relationships with yourself and others. Additionally, Brean’a acknowledges the our family and community histories/herstories/T-stories, socialization and identities play a part in our worldview and our counseling concerns, so utilizing a multicultural and social justice lens, she discusses the way systemic, institutional, cultural and interpersonal factors may impact our mental well-being. Brean’a also practices from a gender affirming, sex positive and culturally responsive approach.

Her goals are for her clients to live healthy, fulfilling and happy lives. Brean’a believes each client needs different things and will partner with clients to select what approach works best for their concerns, while facilitating an open, genuine, empathic and encouraging therapeutic environment.
