Brenda takes clients' confidentiality very seriously and takes great care to insure every client's
Her primary theoretical orientation is cognitive behavioral. This orientation can best be summarized
by the stoic philosopher, Epictetus, who noted, "Men are disturbed not by events, but by the views
they take of them." Changing how one thinks of the world, then becomes a major goal in cognitive
behavioral therapy. She also incorporates some client-centered and behavioral approaches depending
on the particular individual, couple's or family's needs. These approaches are discussed with
clients during the first session.
