Who I am

my story

Hi! I’m Brianna! I am thirty-something gal married to an amazing guy, Greg! We have two fur-babies, sibling Scottish Fold cats, Mr. Big and Blair Waldorf, and we live in the Flora-bama region! We love ballroom dancing, traveling, and binge-watching anything related to Stranger Things J. We have an amazing church family and are both active in our walks with Christ. Without Him, we are nothing. You can find me at your local coffee shop sipping a latte with my nose in a book or laughing at the latest viral YouTube video.

I have my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University. Currently, I am an Associate Licensed Counselor (ALC#: C3461A –  Exp: 12/26/2020) working as a therapist at a nonprofit private practice LifeVesting International (under the fabulous supervision of Robin Wood, LPC-S, NCC, & RPT/S). Getting a master’s degree and applying for full state licensure is an arduous journey and I hope to share what all I have learned along the way! You can follow me on FB and IG @lpctobe or on the “blog” tab of this website (coming soon)! 

American Sign Language (ASL) and the d/Deaf culture are outlets that I am very passionate about and hope to incorporate into private practice one day. Before earning my MA degree, I obtained a BS in Psychology with a language minor degree in American Sign Language Interpreter Training. I love signing and may have online tutorials on the basics of sign language and d/Deaf culture in the near future! 

Another outlet that I have is a passion for creating beauty and art in the form of makeup artistry! I started my own makeup artist business and YouTube channel in late 2014 called, BriMyselfAndEye! You can find out more here: www.BriMyselfAndEye.com and/or www.YouTube.com/BriMyselfAndEye. I also provide private lessons in my beauty studio and love helping people at any level gain confidence in their skills! I have the honor and joy of being a part of clients on their special day (weddings, performing arts, graduation etc.) or photo shoots (maternity, boudoir, headshot etc.).

I believe that everyone has a voice (either signed or spoken) and it is my goal to help people find and use their voice in a wholehearted way.

…so that’s a little about me, I would LOVE the chance to learn more about you and how I can help you talk, grow, and get inspired in whatever life is calling you to!
