About Bre

Breanna (Bre), Cornerstone Counseling

Breanna (Bre) Crisp, LCSW, CCTP

I am a millennial therapist who believes therapy should feel like having tea or coffee with a friend. But with that friend giving you a few hard truths, great laughs, and tools for your mental health! 

Making the choice to start therapy can be scary! I believe that this is your mental health journey and you made the first step (which is HUGE). Be proud of yourself! Now I would like to join you on your mental health journey. 
Maybe you are feeling anxious, depressed, worried about the future, grieving the loss of a loved one or life "before Covid" or even stressed about daily life. I work best with clients who are ready to "do the work" and regain control of their mental health. I strongly believe a person's environment impacts their overall health. Therefore, I like to "see the bigger picture" when working with a client's mental health needs. After all, you are more than a mental health diagnosis. I believe in a person-centered and trauma focused approach to care. 

In our work together, I will utilize interventions such as positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, internal family systems and other evidence-based therapeutic practices. 
I utilize tools and resources such as work from Brene Brown, attachment quizzes, The Five Love Languages, The Enneagram, boundary exploration, and other inventories to build on self and our work together. 
I have specialized training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) specific to inner child healing work. I also have training working with adults of emotionally immature parents (adults of dysfunctional/alcoholic families). Currently, I am pursing a certificate that will allow me to expand my knowledge of the psychological impacts of medical trauma. This is trauma resulting from unpleasant and/or harmful health care experiences. I am a Clinical Certified Trauma Professional (CCTP) which helps me to provide clients with trauma-informed treatment. 
I graduated with a Bachelors in Social Work from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and earned my Masters of Social Work from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Through both experiences, I was able to work in a variety of settings including Community Mental Health and Integrated Behavioral Health through Atrium Health Care System.  
I published three books validating those who have experienced Domestic Violence and align with my interest in Medical Trauma and self-esteem work. These books are: Unstuck: The Reality of Healing and Living Through an Abusive Relationship, I Love ME, Today: A Self-Love Journal, and My Medical Appointment Notebook. This is part of my work in advocating for those who have lived experience and providing survivors and those who experience chronic illness a voice and believing that everyone deserves to feel self-love. 
If you are ready to take the next step in your mental health journey, I would be honored to meet you!
