Welcome, I am Brenda Saturday and for over 25 years I have helped hundreds of couples and individuals improve their personal and professional lives, relationships, and overall health. Oftentimes, it is difficult to find the strength and courage to address personal challenges, and moreso, once we realize our approach is not working and it's time to seek professional help. I can help you discover your inner strength, teach you how to regulate your emotions, improve your communication and resolve personal and workplace conflict/stress.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist and a graduate of St Mary's University specializing in Counseling Psychology & Psychological Services, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. I enjoy helping individuals and couples create intimate, respectful and honest relationships. Additionally, I work with executives & medical professionals improve and navigate the landscape of professional relationship stressors as well as personal and family relational challenges. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; advanced trained Gottman Couple Therapist and a Bringing Baby Home Educator helping expecting individuals/couples transition to parenthood and maintain their love connection; trained in Post Induction Trauma Therapy (PIT) developed by Pia Mellody through The Meadows; Family Systems Therapy; Couples Therapy; Certified Prepare/Enrich Premarital Therapist, and a Relational Life Certified Master Therapist trained by Terry Real. I bring a creative skillset that is specific to your needs and comfortable for you to explore new perceptions and directions.
If you are looking for an experienced, creative, and skilled therapist who promotes practical and sustainable solutions, you have come to the right place. My approach is to provide support, offer sustainable relationship skills, and facilitate growth to help clients effectively address personal and professional life challenges. I offer a highly personalized approach that will build on your strengths in achieving your personal, professional or business goals. When you are ready, I look forward to helping you overcome the challenges in your life, and begin living the life you want.
