     Before becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, Brandi spent 6 years as a Special Education Teacher working with individuals and families with seemingly insurmountable challenges.  During this time, she learned that within the framework of a supportive relationship, her students and families were able to take risks and begin thinking outside of the box in order to address their day-to-day difficulties. 

     Brandi carries this ingenuity and creativity into the counseling room even today.  She believes that her clients are resilient, and she has seen that change occurs within trusting relationships, as clients feel safe enough to take risks and explore new patterns of interactions.  She believes that individuals and families can overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges both emotionally and within their relationships.  Brandi approaches her work with individuals and families from a systemic perspective believing that the individual both influences and is being influenced by his/her family system.   

     Brandi has been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2011 and a board approved Supervisor since 2013.  In addition to her work at Sacred Space Counseling Center, Brandi partners with a local non-profit counseling agency to help train students that are pursuing a Master’s degree in Counseling.  Brandi is currently completing her 2nd year within the Marriage and Family Therapy PhD program at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth. 

In her spare time, Brandi enjoys all things creative, loves to laugh, watches Married at First Sight as well as other reality-based TV shows, and plays ball with her Yorkie named Gus. 

     Brandi would love to work with you and/or your family as you take steps to connect, grow, and heal!
