About Brianne Shappel

Brianne believes it is important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and respected. Through a strong therapeutic relationship, Brianne provides a combination of support and challenge, which can help cultivate trust, confidence, and assertiveness. Brianne works with her clients collaboratively to develop interventions that consider the individual’s needs and strengths. Like so many others, Brianne finds it challenging at times to strike that balance in her day with productive activities versus time for herself. But in her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities, reading, thrift shopping, and most of all long walks with her dog.
