Meet Our Therapists
Brynn Werner, LCSW
Therapy has the potential to initiate a profound shift in your life. Showing up is the first step, even if you do not know where to begin. Whether you wish to understand how your past influences your present, need help navigating stressors, or already possess insights you would like to further explore, I would love to be your teammate on your journey of growth and self-discovery.
Having worked with diverse populations with a wide array of challenges, I have developed a comprehensive toolkit of skills, modalities, and wisdom that will effectively facilitate the change you desire.
Our initial work together will revolve around identifying your current struggles, goals and the obstacles hindering your progress. Together, we will then engage in a collaborative process to discover the therapeutic approaches that resonate most with you and address the specific challenges you are facing.
As your therapist, I value creating a therapeutic space that feels sacred and individualized to you. While therapy can evoke intense emotions and require vulnerability, I believe that by infusing joy, laughter and warmth, we can also find moments of respite and levity throughout the work. By embracing the beautifully complex nature of what it means to be human, I strive to create a space that acknowledges multidimensionality and fosters connection and resilience.
Training and Education
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in New York, with a degree from Columbia University. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with diverse populations in a variety of settings, allowing me to gain valuable experience and training.
This experience includes providing social, academic and emotional support for students, adults, and elderly individuals through psychosocial challenges. I also have experience in supporting individuals through challenging life circumstances, such as anticipatory grief, chronic/terminal illness, death and dying and bereavement. I have worked extensively in the community health center setting as well, providing direct mental health counseling to individuals of all ages, backgrounds and diagnoses.
In addition to traditional psychodynamic therapy, I draw from various modalities, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, DBT,CBT, Internal Family Systems, Emotional Freedom Technique, Exposure and Response Prevention and Motivational
Interviewing. I studied Positive Psychology in Denmark, one of the happiest nations in the world, and I enjoy integrating principles of Positive Psychology into therapy to help individuals unlock their true potential and live more meaningful lives.
