Brenda Broussard, MEd, LPC, holds a Master’s of Education in Community Counseling from Lamar State University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from McNeese State University.
Brenda has experience with children, adolescents, women, and couples, and she approaches each session with curiosity and humility, knowing we all have broken places. She has always been drawn to growth and strength-based approaches, also incorporates components of cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused models, and uses the research-based and highly successful theories of Drs. John and Julie Gottman in working with couples. In addition, she has advanced training in play therapy and often uses Theraplay-based principles to enhance attachment and the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent and child.
Brenda is passionate about working with women to uncover their personal gifts and strengths so they can heal, grow, and make deeper connections. Mothering, mother-daughter dynamics, life transitions, sex/intimacy, bringing play back into your life, and relationships are all areas she enjoys working on with women. She also works with HSPs (highly sensitive persons), TCKs (third culture kids), cross-cultural workers, and professional athlete’s wives (and other career-dominated marriages).
Living and working with diverse cultures and populations has deeply influenced Brenda’s work with clients. Before settling back in Texas, she lived in 16 different states and 4 different countries. Her experiences have included working with Burmese and Nepalese refugees, adolescent orphan girls, and the indigenous Güaymi in Costa Rica, and connecting locals with orphanages in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. She loves the Helen Keller quote, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
Brenda has been married to her best friend for over two decades and has two teenaged daughters.
