Dr. Brietzke specializes in the neuropsychological evaluation of a wide range of disorders of the brain including head injuries, ADHD, learning difficulties, emotional problems and memory disorders. The neuropsychological testing offered by Dr. Brietzke provides a more specific understanding of brain functioning than psychological, psychiatric or school-based testing does, resulting in more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment. He also integrates the cutting-edge neuroimaging and brainmapping tools with traditional neuropsychological tests. This allows for unprecedented levels of understanding of an individual's underlying brain processes and opens up many new treatment options.

In the process, we tap into different aspects of the psyche, stored in the body, which have been silenced, shrunken, or scared. My goal is to create brave, inclusive spaces in order to allow for expression, liberation, + connection.

Therapy is difficult and making the first step to find the right professional to help you better understand yourself and your world can be a daunting task! I firmly view therapy as a partnership between myself and the client with the fit or relationship between us being incredibly important. We will work together to identify and manage problematic behaviors, patterns, and relationships. Your openness and commitment to the therapeutic process are critical, as you will get out of it what you put in. Meanwhile, I will be here to support and gently push you along the way.

Personally, I know how difficult it was for me to get out of bed when suffering from depression and anxiety and to go about the everyday when concerned about having another panic attack. I know how valuable it was for me to have someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me or make me feel guilty about being exactly where I was at the time. The idea of "you should be fine", or "you have no reason to be anxious or depressed" is hurtful and doesn't help.
