Brooke joined the Engage team in 2016 as a group therapist for our Intensive Outpatient Programs and is now a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist seeing clients in her private practice. Brooke has spent four years working with teenage girls in the foster care system who have been significantly impacted by severe trauma, emotional and behavioral issues, and substance abuse among a range of mental health challenges to support their abilities to develop positive self-identity and emotion regulation skills. She also spent a year providing therapy within a middle school setting to students struggling with depression, anxiety, and academic difficulties to aid in their abilities to improve self-esteem and manage emotional stress. Most recently, her work at Engage includes supporting teens and young adults in overcoming anxiety and depression related to life transitions, adjustment to family stress, and shifting self-perceptions to reduce shame. Her therapeutic work is oriented towards a strengths-based approach to support her clients and their families in overcoming adversity, as well as developing greater motivation, gratitude, resilience, acceptance, and self-growth. Brooke enjoys spending her free time with friends and family, exploring new places, staying physically active, and implementing progressive tools to remain mindful and grateful.
