Individual counseling to help you
improve your perspective and live more mindfully

You do have power over your thoughts.
We’re here to show you.

It’s completely normal to experience negative thoughts. After all, they’re a natural human response to tough situations!

However, you don’t have to be consumed by them either. You don’t have to let them prevent you from achieving the life you always envisioned. By learning to control how your stressors impact you, you can be the best version of you.

That’s what A Better You is for: Through methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, and learning and implementing positive coping tools, we’ll help you recognize, accept, and triumph over your obstacles.

Here’s to a fresh start.

Why you might want individual therapy

There are many reasons for seeking individual therapy. 

Your anxiety is interfering with everyday life

You often worry that bad things are going to happen.

You frequently feel “down”

Your depressive episodes are making it difficult to carry out basic tasks.

You have difficulty shaking negative experiences

Your reaction to past trauma flares up easily and without warning.

If any of this hits home for you, that’s ok! We’re here to help you shift your mindset so you can identify negative thoughts and keep them from consuming you. Whether you’re experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, or anything in between, there is a way forward where you can live fully and authentically.

Hanna Brinnier, LMSW

As your therapist, I won’t typically provide you with advice or a solution, but rather help you gain insight about yourself and the world around you, which will help you understand yourself more deeply. Together, as a team, we will look for themes, patterns, as well as the challenges in your life that may cause frequent feelings of inadequacy, shame, depression, frustration, and anxiety.

I graduated with my Master’s in Social Work from the University at Albany in 2021. Over the years, I have worked alongside adolescents and adults. I believe in using a variety of client-centered approaches to achieve your goals in a way that’s unique to you.
