Briana is also leading our Mindfulness for ADHD group. During our 8 week virtual support group for ADHD, clients will gather together in a space where they feel supported, included, and understood by others navigating the challenges of ADHD, while learning strategies grounded in dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy to reduce feelings of overwhelm and calm feelings of chaos, Our virtual support group for ADHD will assist clients in increasing self-understanding and self-compassion, improving daily self-care, and learning to set reasonable expectations for themselves. Briana’s goal is for clients to finish the 8 weeks feeling more confident about their abilities to create an environment for success, learn tools to avoid procrastination and get things done, and feel more compassionate and mindful towards themselves. We want clients to walk away each session feeling as though they were fully supported, educated, and with tangible strategies to utilize in creating greater ease in their lives.

Who is Briana Garcia? Here are a few fun facts to get to know our newest provider!

Born: I was born in Texas but moved around a lot due to both of my parents being in the military!

Favorite color: Green

What do you like to do? I love to read, hike, kayak, and binge watch Netflix. I also enjoy spending time with loved ones, traveling, and learning.

Favorite foods or recipes? Depends on my mood, but I love ice cream, lasagna, chicken korma, pizza, and cinnamon rolls!

Describe the clients you work best with? My sessions are trauma-informed, resiliency-focused, and social-justice oriented. I provide affirming and strengths-based individual and group therapy to individuals and families. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds, but especially women and young adults.

My big three therapeutic focus areas include:

  • Self-Compassion: Do you find yourself giving grace, patience, understanding, and forgiveness to everyone around you but yourself? Do you find yourself struggling to accept your mistakes or being harsh with yourself? Self-compassion may help! I am passionate about helping you provide the same love, care, and compassion that you give to others, to your yourself. It may feel unfamiliar and maybe even a little awkward at first, but you are so worthy and deserving of that same kindness and care.
  • Identity-Based Traumatic Stress: Are you tired of being asked “What are you?” Do you find yourself constantly being othered or left out? Do you feel like you have to walk on eggshells or switch your personality around others? You may be experiencing identity-based traumatic stress. In our sessions, we can unpack how your identity has impacted your experiences both currently and in the past.
  • Life Transitions: Adjusting to change and leaving behind the familiar can be a scary process. Maybe you’re exploring a new career or questioning your identity? Maybe you’re approaching a major lifestyle change or going through a breakup? Whether positive or negative, major life transitions can really take a toll on your sense of stability and safety. In our sessions, we can work together to process this new “normal” for you. There is plenty of space for all emotions- including grief for what you are leaving behind and joy for what may come.
