The Heart of Our Practice: Our Clients

At Brave, we love empowering women to embrace their worth, create deep meaning relationships, and heal painful life experiences. Our practice specializes in working with high-functioning women dealing with the following:

Our clients are driven, compassionate, strong, loving, resilient, intelligent, motivated, and care for everyone around them. They are often the people who suffer in silence, not wanting to “burden” those around them. They are Superwomen. It’s our honor to support these Superwomen, helping them heal, deepen connections, and create the life they desire.   

The Foundation of Our Practice

The foundation of our practice is Humanistic, meaning that we do not pathologize the human experience but rather aim to conceptualize our clients in a more holistic manner. We want to see our clients succeed in all areas of their life. We want to thrive along with them. 

We do our best work when we are empowered to pursue our passion and work with our ideal clients. Our therapists gain tremendous support in helping them identify and work with their ideal client. 

Our team is awesome!

We work hard, love our clients, and are supremely laid back. We deeply care about one another and want to support each others success. This is a great position if you want to make a major positive impact, but would rather be a part of team than do it on their own. We desire a team member who’s looking to plant some roots, and be a part of the foundation of our practice. At Brave, you aren’t just an employee, you are a part of our family.
