Hi, I’m Brooke Fleming
Empathetic. Respectful. Ethical.
I am so glad you are here. Thank you for stopping by.
I believe that we are all looking for a sense of acceptance and belonging in this world. Usually, that belonging needs to start with ourselves!
I find it an honor to work with others during some of their darkest moments in life. I have a passion for working with couples and women who are experiencing or have experienced difficulty in becoming parents, including those who have experienced infertility, miscarriage, infant loss, and perinatal/postpartum depression and anxiety. I strive to work with others to balance each person’s emotions, experiences, and expectations to find collaborative solutions that work for multiple parties.
Further, I have interest and experience working with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-worth, grief and loss, perfectionism, communication difficulties, unrealistic expectations, relationship challenges, and medical challenges. Much of this is focused on missed connection with oneself and others. Self-compassion is paramount. I have great interest in spirituality and provide Christian counseling to those that desire using their faith in therapy.
I appreciate working with others from a place of humor, compassion, healthy boundaries, and self-care while fostering emotional awareness and personal growth. It is encouraging to see others draw on their experiences, opinions, and desire to generate change they are looking for to become the best version of themselves. I firmly believe that living a life that is authentic to one’s values and beliefs is essential to creating balance and peace. I strive to support others in finding applicable skills, including a variety of mindfulness-based skills, to incorporate into their lives to increase their ability to cope with unpleasant and uncomfortable emotions.
With that, I am so grateful you stopped by today.

Therapy dog in training
Bowen is a mini labradoodle. He is currently in training to be certified as a therapy dog. Bowen does accompany me to work and is only allowed in services with your approval and comfort level.
Bowen enjoys belly rubs and laying at your feet. He is attentive and attuned to difficult emotions. His favorite foods are peanut butter, chicken, and cheese (like his momma). Bowen loves to play fetch with his people at home.
