Info about me
Hello, you. My name is Brooke Marchant. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC) at Reflective Wellness: Mind & Body. I am passionate about helping people in need who are facing difficult life circumstances. I primarily take a client-centered approach meaning you are your own expert; I am here to help guide and walk with you towards achieving a healthier sense of mental health well-being. I focus on dysfunctional thinking patterns and behaviors that can cause mental health unease. I work closely with symptoms of trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, and mood instability, regarding both adults and adolescents. I have experience working with vulnerable populations including but not limited to homeless, incarcerated, and LGBTQ+.
Info on modalities.
Therapist takes a step back and promotes you to take active directive in your healing process. Therapist is mostly present to encourage empowerment and self-acceptance. This is great for folks who recognize their potential and want to take lead but value therapist support.
While diagnosis and symptoms remain important, holistic therapy focuses more on approaches to healing that considers the person’s entire being and its relation to the way they experience life. We will explore mind-body connection and establish strategies to heal from the inside-out.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
A goal-focused approach that considers thoughts, feelings, and experiences that support desired behaviors. This can be useful for those who have a short-term goal they want to achieve while receiving support and accountability from the therapist.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
A skill focused practice to manage difficult, strong, and pervasive emotions. DBT will address self-awareness, emotion regulation, and difficulties with interpersonal communication.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Focus on overcoming negative attitudes, thoughts, and feelings by mindfulness practice. ACT is a modality that builds on accepting our reactions, staying present and making choices that enable us into action. This can be helpful for those who struggle with anxiety, stress and worry, and depression.
A form of behavior therapy that uses a careful process by exposing you to triggers which can help to overcome phobias, anxiety, and distress. This can be a beneficial modality for those who experience post-traumatic stress symptoms.
Provides a creative space to express self through art mediums. Expressing emotions and experiences through words alone can be difficult. Art therapy aids you by allowing yourself to express through visual representations.
Strategies used to engage mind and body through breathing exercises. Breath work can allow us to pause, relax, and give space to reflect on our feelings, thoughts, and physiological responses to distress. Breath work will activate the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing for a decrease in stress related symptoms.
How I help
Providing a safe space for us to engage in treatment is most important to me. We will build a therapeutic relationship from a foundation of trust, understanding, and patience. I encourage you to focus on your strengths while trying your best to be kind and patient with your own healing. We can overcome obstacles together, as you need, and will collaborate on a treatment plan to discover what works best for you.
More about me
I enjoy spending time with my seven fur babies – one dog, three cats, and three guinea pigs! Being in nature is helpful to me while spending time with close friends and family. I do my best to create painted art which often turns out to be “abstract.” During free time you can find me reading our current book club novel, tending to my many plants, or watching/listening to comedy.
