MEET BRANDI GORDON
Resident in Social Work
Brandi offers counseling support to adults (age 18+) who may struggle with trauma, attachment, anxiety, depression, parenting stressors, life transitions, self-esteem, and emotion regulation. She prioritizes creating a compassionate and validating space for her clients to unburden from personal struggles, foster a compassionate curiosity about themselves, and develop skills to help them respond to challenges in ways that align with what they value most.
Brandi integrates tenants from evidence-based interventions including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She recognizes how past experiences deeply influence one's present life and utilizes a trauma-informed perspective in her practice.
Brandi earned her BA from Texas A&M University and her Master in Social Work from George Mason University. Along with formal education, Brandi's diverse background as a teacher, political staffer, community volunteer, counselor, and mother give her keen understanding into the complexities of supporting children and adolescents, navigating stressors in a fast-paced professional setting, juggling work, family and personal commitments, and the capacity of individuals to cultivate resilience, even amid profound, personal challenges.
Outside of work, Brandi enjoys spending time with her husband and children, going on walks with friends, exercising, watching sports, reading, and traveling
