Finding the right path

Life is full of growth and transition. Sometimes this can be a painful process that requires additional support and nurturing. Becoming our best selves takes patience, practice, and compassion. As humans we are driven to maximize our potential but sometimes, we can get lost in the details of what life throws at us. Refocusing on our unique passions and strengths can help guide us during our most difficult times.

About me

Brenda Quinn, MA, LMFT

My approach with clients is strengths based and collaborative. I believe that human nature is powerful and that supporting clients from wherever they are is key to successful outcomes. I have worked in a variety of roles over the years and have identified my clinical strengths to be crisis stabilization and skill building, creating a platform for success.


Demographic Focus

Crisis stabilization/Interim care is available for those awaiting Residential Treatment Center (RTC), Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

  • Toddlers / Preschoolers (0 to 6)

  • Preteens / Tweens (11 to 13)

  • Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19)

  • Adults (20 +)

What I offer

Crisis stabilization

My experience has been largely in the areas of crisis stabilization with children, teens, and their families. Over the past several years I have worked within a variety of settings ranging from community-based to inpatient and emergency room hospital settings. I have come to recognize the many gaps in care for families struggling with mental illness. In an effort to combat this lapse, I offer therapy, safety planning, and parent coaching on an intensive clinical level. Services are unique and catered to each client’s specific needs.

You do not need a therapist to heal

You know yourself better than anyone and have valuable insight into what you need. Sometimes we lose sight of this or stop trusting ourselves, becoming stuck. This is when it becomes useful to connect with a clinician who can see your strengths, challenge your insecurities, and cheer you on as you move forward.
