Brenna Ansley

Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern
Licensed Marriage and Family Associate
Supervised by Heather McPherson, LPC-S, LMFT-S, CST

How would you describe therapy with you?
Brenna approaches each client from a non-judgmental stance while working to understand the clients’ unique worldview. There are many lenses that can be applied to deepen our understanding of ourselves and others and as a therapist she works to collaborate with the client to understand the influence of previous relationships and cultural images. She works from a feminist standpoint through Relational-Cultural Therapy. We grow through action in relationship with others including the therapeutic relationship and in relationships that are connected, authentic, have mutual empathy and mutual empowerment.

Tell us a little about your background?
My background is in art, psychology and gender/sexuality studies, specifically critiquing cultural representations of sexuality. Brenna is passionate about working with clients that are LGBTQ+, in more than monogamous relationships and practice alternative sexuality and lifestyles. She brings in-depth knowledge of kink and sees its potential to be positive, healing and spiritual. She sees consensual nonmonogamy as a path of self-understanding and relational growth. She has both lived experience and professional training which have shaped her understanding of these topics. She believes in the healing power of pleasure.
