Brianna is a genuine person that both my daughter and I found great benefit in working with. Raising teenage girls in today's society has a multitude of challenges, and it seemed like everything hit us around the same time - issues at home, issues with extended family, hormonal changes, & negative peer influences. As a mother, I felt like I was losing my daughter.
Our pediatrician referred us to Brianna, who was extremely proficient in looking at the issues from all angles and in explaining things in ways that felt age-appropriate. My daughter appreciated her dedication to confidentiality, which she identified as a priority during our initial session; unless - of course - she feared for someone's safety. Nevertheless, she was attuned to my concerns as a mom - when she saw worry/question marks in my eyes she would always comfort me with her opinion but without disclosing the details of respective conversations - something you may just have to experience to understand. She would provide tools and educate me as to the ways by which I might have more success in conversations with my daughter.
We appreciated the ways in which she flexes her schedule to meet the needs of families as they arise - she also seems to schedule sessions based on the needs of the patient; not to just take your money. In the thick of things, we would see her every few days. When things were calmer, we would stagger appointments at her recommendation. Currently, we are not seeing Brianna, however, every few weeks I ask my daughter if she would like to check in with her; as the door is always open for our return.
Life is full of speed bumps - for us, Brianna has been a real blessing!
