Brianna Dawkins, MS, LPC, NCC

Counselor

Being a human is so hard. As a counselor, I want to be a part of normalizing the need for mental-emotional support. With empathy first, I want to help people cultivate a better understanding of themselves, others, and their world. In my practice, I will hold a safe space where you can take a deep breath and process what’s going on in your life, while developing skills or coping strategies that empower you to take strides. I truly believe that we hold so much power within ourselves to grow – sometimes we just need some help tapping into it.

Bri is a Licensed Professional Counselor. She graduated from Northwest Nazarene University in 2022 with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
