About Breanne Rising
Relationships are important, whatever form they come in. We are wired for connection. In relationships, we can find love, support, kindness, and safety. Challenges may arise when there are shifts in our relationships, such as a negotiation of new terms, dynamics, or expectations. With some support, conflict can be an opportunity for closeness and healing.
My experience has been with younger adults, queer folx, people who view themselves as “out of the box,” and creative thinkers. I have experience working with relationship struggles, grief, anxiety, depression, learning differences, and identity exploration and development. I offer a combination of talk therapy and practical skills to individuals and partners.
My style is authentic, nonjudgmental, and open-hearted. I bring my personality with me – I am down to earth, playful, creative, and honest. I utilize a gentle and straightforward communication approach to help partners and individuals connect with their strengths, reflect, and identify what is important to them. When people struggle, some do not feel heard or understood, while others might feel overwhelmed and need space. Working with me can help you recognize these patterns and learn to communicate needs, goals, and passions in new ways. I offer a supportive space where you can gain an outside perspective and be seen and heard. I draw from relational theories, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
Our identities impact our experience in the world. I value using an intersectional lens to foster a safe and affirming space. I value transparency around sharing my own identities, including: queer, cisgender, femme, white, parent, and wife. I am open to discussing how these identities (and others) might interact with yours and influence our relationship.
