Meet Dr. Brie Turns, LAMFT
Welcome! I'm Dr. Brie Turns, licensed associate marriage and family therapist. Like many of you, I have struggled to find reliable and accurate information on how to live a more fulfilling life.
Early in my career, I realized that many families are searching for reliable information to help them resolve everyday problems. Unfortunately, much of the information online is inaccurate.
I decided to create a website, full of information, to help parents, couples, and individuals resolve their everyday problems. All of the information on this site is backed by research and much of it is information that you would receive from a licensed family therapist.
Life can be challenging and relationships can be tricky, but you got this and I'm here to help!

All of life begins in the context of a family. Whether your family is blood relatives, adopted parents, or a foster family, we all start life with a family. Family therapists specifically view individuals' problems within the context of your family-of-origin (birth family) and/or your family of choice. We believe that the way an individual thinks, behaviors, and experiences life is impacted by how they were raised and, also, their current relationships (i.e. marriage, being a parent).
Most clients seek therapy because they are having a difficult time in a relationship. Whether it is a martial relationship, parent-child relationship, or the relationship that they have with themselves! No one lives in a vacuum. People are consistently interacting with others, which can cause stress, anger, and anxiety. Licensed marriage and family therapists consider clients' relationships when treating their problems.
Marriage and family therapists are trained to be able to work with individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents. We treat a variety of life challenges, including but not limited to: grief and loss, addiction, infidelity, premarital, anxiety, depression, disabilities, parenting, and trauma.
Common models of family therapy include: Bowenian, Structural, Strategic, Solution-Focused, Emotionally-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral, and Experiential.
