Dawnn M. Pirani Brumfield, DMin

Pronouns: she, her, hersRequest an Appointment

I am a Black+ Queer+ Person of Faith. My personal mission is to engage people – whoever they are, right where they are – toward hope!

As a trained mental health clinician, I am especially equipped to discuss matters of race, identity, faith, heart, or family. I work with all people and my services are accessible regardless of race, gender, class or culture, sexual orientation, family design, and physical, emotional, or mental conditions.

I specialize in working with individuals living with stress, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues. I am a family systems clinician who believes that early interactions with our families of origin shape how we think about ourselves, how we engage with others, and what kinds of decisions we make.

Have you ever wondered why you do what you do? Do you ever think about how where you come from influences your current relationships? I believe that you CAN be aware of how your interaction with other people is influenced by how you understand your role in your family. Together we will do the work of discovering who we are and how we show up in the world! I use a combination of narrative storytelling, mindfulness activities and family systems genograms designed to help you gain insight!

The truth is that you can engage other resources for therapy. The simplest reason why you should connect with me is that I care. I care deeply. For me, YOU matter! Call me today to learn more about how we can work together.
