I work with individuals, couples, and families
I use a CBT model with clients but tend to be client-centered and strengths-focused in therapy.
My name is Brianna Velez, and I am a Licensed Social Worker! Through a compassionate and strengths-based approach to mental health care, I hope to empower clients to believe in their own worth and potential as individuals to grow through the therapeutic process. I am deeply passionate about helping women and men of color overcome struggles with anxiety and depression while also addressing how these mental health struggles might be compounded by stigmas against mental health treatment. I prioritize cultivating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to begin their own journeys to self-love and self-empowerment. I am a firm believer that all clients have the capacity to grow and change even amidst the deepest of adversities. As a therapist, I use an empowerment and strengths-based model to encourage clients to view their struggles and successes as independent from their capacity for change. That is, whether a client is struggling or succeeding, they are still worthy of growth, change, self-love, and compassion. Together, my clients and I will take the first step on this journey towards growth and a brighter future.
