Brenda Stewart, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern


Seeking counsel and entering into a therapeutic process is courageous! I consider it an honor and a privilege to work with you in counseling. You are a valuable individual and deserve to experience wellness mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
I have special interest in helping those processing trauma and grief, working with adolescents and young adult women dealing with eating and body image issues, self-harm, and those dealing with PTSD, anxiety and depression. I am passionate about providing a safe, comfortable environment built upon trust so that heart change can occur.

It is through my own healing journey that God increased my passion to walk alongside others in theirs. Whether the struggle is situational or a long-term battle, there is hope! I treat individuals holistically and utilize evidence-based approaches throughout the course of therapy. I counsel from a strengths based, integrative approach. Therapeutic modalities include EMDR, dialectical behavior therapy, HEART model, attachment theory, object relations, and client-centered therapy. I encourage you to ask questions and seek out knowledge regarding the therapeutic approaches. I will work together with you toward mutually established goals and seek to achieve the best possible results for you to experience wellness in each area of life.
I am a member of the American Counseling Association, American Association of Christian Counselors, and a member of Chi Sigma Iota. I also have completed level one and two training for becoming a certified traumatologist with the Green Cross.

I look forward to speaking with you!
