Bri Harless

(LPC, CAADC)

About Me

I have a master’s degree in Counseling with a focus on professional counseling and marriage and family therapy. Since 2009 I have worked providing individual, couples, and group counseling. I spent the first half of my career working with individuals and families affected by substance use and the last several years I have worked in a private practice setting helping people with a variety of mental health concerns and providing couples counseling. On an individual level I have spent a significant amount of time with those working to overcome depression, anxiety, ADHD, substance use disorders, PTSD, stage of life adjustments, and parenting stressors. In relation to couples counseling I have worked with issues of infidelity, poor communication, emotional affairs, pornography use, financial strain, and concerns with children.

My experience over the last 11 years has taught me to know my clients first. There are several theoretical approaches to providing counseling, but there is no one size fits all approach. My first goal is to know my clients and what might suit them best. I view my role as a guide, a helper, a teacher. I believe each individual and their autonomy is to be respected. Every tool used in therapy should be something you can use in a way that fits your life. I believe every person has what it takes to overcome the trials they face in life.

I know reaching out for help can be uncomfortable for a variety of reasons, but I’m glad you took the step. I have hope we can work together to make it worth your investment. I look forward to getting started.

We love talking with Bri...she never makes us feel judged, and always offers different perspectives on the situation. She has helped us through so much, and taught us the skills to work better together as a couple. This has definitely helped us come out stronger as a couple.
