10 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi I am Brendalis and go by Brenda. Do you feel tired of been undervalued, or feel that you do not matter? I am here to help you improve those feelings and help you understand that you do matter, and you are valuable. I love helping individual achieve their goals and help improve their well-being. I have vast experience working with individual with trauma, depression, anxieties, ADHD, self-esteem, family dynamics, and life-changing events. I consider myself an eclectic social worker who understands that one approach doesn’t fit all, and I like to utilize different techniques based on the client’s needs. Talking about our feelings make us feel vulnerable; therefore, one of the most important steps into the healing journey is working on developing a client therapist relationship. My goal is to help alleviate the stigma and to provide that comfort that will help you improve the symptoms that seems to be holding you back in a non-judgmental way. When it comes to changes, I can relate. As a military wife, I have been through a lot of changes and challenges. Whether it was having to relocate to a new place, having to leave family and friends and/or having to start all over, I completely understand how scary it is and I am here to help you through that process of change and the fear of the unknown. I recently move to Florida, and I am licensed in Illinois, Iowa, and Washington State. I am here to help you through the healing journey.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first sessions we will work together on creating a therapist and client relationship to help you feel comfortable and to identify if I am the right fit for you through this healing journey. My goal is to guide you in a non-judgmental and empathetic manner. We will work on a history taking; we will be discussing different aspects you would like to work on and improve. We will work on a treatment plan, we will identify your goals, and different techniques to achieve your goals. My goal is to teach you coping skills that will help you feel empower.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Some of the treatment methods and tools that I utilized are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Person Center, and Motivational Interviewing.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a strengths base and compassionate license clinical social worker with 10 years of experience, I provide non-judgmental techniques that will help you grow mentally and emotionally. I truly enjoy working in the mental health field and love seeing clients thriving and making long lasting changes. I also provide different tools to help you relax, to stop overthinking, to experience less stress, and to plan for your future. In addition, I am bilingual; I speak fluently Spanish and English.
