Brianna McMillan, LMSW

Although all emotions may not be comfortable to sit with, they serve a purpose in our lives. My goal as your therapist is not to teach how you to make emotions go away, but instead to become more curious about them. We will work together to increase awareness of your thoughts and feelings so you can respond to them in more mindful and effective ways. In doing this, we build the essence of true self-care by responding to your needs and building habits that support your long-term goals.

My approach to therapy includes evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness practices. These treatment styles allow a framework for us to learn more about your thoughts, feelings and behaviors and set concrete goals to build the life you most want to live! These frameworks are flexible enough to make meaningful changes in a way that is manageable for you. I work with children, adolescents, and adults for a variety of mental health needs. My specialties include supporting those with mood and anxiety disorders such as Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, OCD, PTSD and personality disorders.

I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Sciences and a minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I then attended the University of Georgia and obtained my Master in Social Work degree in 2018. Since that time, I have maintained an active license to practice as a Licensed Master of Social Work in the state of Georgia. My goal is to provide high-quality, culturally competent care to all my clients.
