Licensed Master Social Worker
Brenda received her Masters of Social Work degree from Michigan State University and has been practicing as a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) since 1997. In addition, she is a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW) and is a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIP).
As a mental heath therapist, Brenda is passionate about helping others find growth, healing, and wholeness. She has extensive experience working with people who are dealing with relationship/marital struggles, depression, anxiety, spiritual issues/growth, grief and loss, trauma, women’s issues, feeling stuck in life, parenting children with trauma, and has experience guiding her clients through many other issues. Brenda has an eclectic approach to her therapy - utilizing therapeutic methods from a wide range of best practices - and working with her patients to develop an individualized treatment plan. She provides a safe and comfortable environment that optimizes the pursuit of peace and balance.
Brenda grew up splashing in the waters of Lake Michigan. She has always found the people along the Lakeshore to have a unique vibe that is friendly and unassuming. Here, there is always something to celebrate and people to celebrate with. Brenda enjoys camping with her husband and kids, spending time with good friends, and being surrounded by God’s creation.
“I like to see others experience peace and joy in their lives. I take the journey with my clients to discover the root of what is inhibiting them and guide them to find healing and freedom.”
When to reach out
If you have experienced any of the symptoms listed below for more than 2 weeks, or if you are having thoughts of harming yourself, or suicidal thoughts, you could be suffering from depression or anxiety, and it’s important to seek professional counseling immediately.
It’s always a good idea to seek therapy if it’s harder than usual to work, go to school, care for children, if you’re struggling in a significant relationship, or don’t feel like yourself.
