About Briana Lefman
I work with individuals who struggle with finding inner peace. You know that pit we get in our stomachs and throats? (It's our avoidance to face our unresolved stuff; it feels scary and overwhelming). Think of how much you're carrying around. Heavy load, right? Imagine finally, not feeling it any longer. I can help you, figure you out. I can help you heal your trauma without re-living it.
"I don't feel like talking about it". This was my go-to; I truly believed people wouldn't 'get me'. I struggled with numbness and detachment. I felt alone and completely misunderstood. I joined the field of Psychology because I yearned for wholeness and a sense of identity. Then, I figured out how to feel my feelings. Apparently, I had been avoiding the painful ones for years. Are you thinking, 'I'll be fine, I'm just having an 'off day?' Our 'off days ' aren't supposed to last years. We are VERY good at avoiding reality. I'll help you understand what has felt empty. I'll help you develop insight. I'll help you come to LIFE.
I work with individuals who are hurting, overwhelmed, avoidant, and angry. I help you connect to the 'why' behind your patterns and dysfunction. I help you shift from anger to understanding. I'll help make sense of it. I'll teach you how to identify what you've been living without. I'll teach you tools that help you with the who/what/where/when/why of you.
