    Therapeutic approach: 

    Tina Brigham works with ages 18+ in individual therapy. She is especially skilled in working with anxiety disorders, depression, and other mood disorders, perinatal and postpartum issues in women and men, trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, self-esteem and identity issues, interpersonal issues, substance use issues, and difficulty in adjustments to life transitions. She has over 12 years of experience working in a variety of behavioral health settings. Some of the therapy modalities Tina utilizes are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Positive Psychology. She has had great success with connection and quickly establishing a trusting and comfortable relationship with clients.

    Tina enjoys working with mothers and fathers dealing with perinatal and postpartum struggles, general parenting stress, and difficulties with adjustment to parenthood. She has a passion for supporting women and men with maternal/paternal mental health, while also teaching skills to help adjust and assisting parents in finding their authentic identity in parenthood. She recently completed extensive training on Maternal Mental Health through PSI to help better serve this population.

    Tina strives to create a warm, comfortable, and trusting environment. It is important to her to tailor therapy to individual needs. She utilizes collaboration, teamwork, the mind-body connection, and strength-based approaches to foster an environment of empowerment, understanding, and authenticity. She typically combines talk therapy with psychoeducation in order to help clients process experiences, build skills and gain insight. Tina finds value in looking at the symptoms, rather than the generalized diagnosis, and is skilled at ‚Äúdigging deep‚ÄĚ to help understand patterns of behavior, thoughts, and belief systems. She also has a passion for identity exploration work and assisting patients in pursuing their authentic self.¬† She also adheres to trauma-informed care, diversity competency, and is an LGBTQA+ ally. She is confident that her unique approach to therapy, combined with her skill set, can be a good match for you.¬†
