Brenda Wierschin

LCSW
Therapist & Certified Life Coach

Welcome! I am excited you're here. 

Change is always possible when you have the right tools and support.  In general, I am eclectic in my approach. The work I do is very much influenced by your individual needs and what you are seeking to get out of our work together. The coaching and therapy experience is different for each person, and I really enjoy arriving in session and seeing where the path leads. I am here to honor and celebrate your individual story so your resilience and strength can be fostered and nurtured.

You can expect me to recognize your strengths and see your resiliency.  Authentic connection is central to the work I do. The right "fit" matters so much! I will provide you with a comfortable and safe place that allows you to feel supported and validated. I am here to collaborate with you in examining and shifting thought patterns so that you can create positive and meaningful change.
