Therapeutic approach: 

Tina strives to create a warm, comfortable, and trusting environment. It is important to her to tailor therapy differently depending on what the individual needs.  Through her professional experience, she has found the best success in individualizing therapy, as everyone is different. She also adheres to trauma informed care and diversity competency. Teamwork and collaboration are emphasized in order to foster an environment of empowerment and strength. She typically combines talk therapy with psychoeducation in order to help clients process experiences, build skills and gain insight. Tina believes that this combination in therapy approach can result in the most successful therapy experience. Tina finds value in looking at the symptoms, rather than the generalized diagnosis, in order to honor a person’s right to autonomy.  

 

Tina Brigham works with adolescents 16 years and up and adults in individual therapy. She has over 12 years of experience working in a variety of behavioral health settings. She is especially skilled in working with anxiety disorders, depression and other mood disorders, trauma and PTSD, grief, self-esteem issues, interpersonal issues, substance use issues, and difficulty in adjustments to life stresses. She also enjoys working with maternal mental health issues, perinatal and postpartum struggles, general parenting stress and difficulties with adjustment to parenthood. She recently completed an extensive training on Maternal Mental Health through PSI to help better serve this population. 

 

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. We are confident that her unique approach to therapy, combined with her skill set, can be a good match for you.
