About Briana

Briana was born in Richland, Washington, but moved to Texas at an early age, calling Texas her home. Briana has been a clinical therapist since obtaining her master’s degree in social work in 2004. She has worked for almost twenty years in mental health and substance use disorder treatment, starting as an entry-level therapist and moving into management as Clinical Director, and doing some consulting work before taking this exciting role at The Last Resort. Briana is passionate about helping others find freedom through the powerful work of recovery and trauma healing and resolution, giving people the opportunity to set themselves free from whatever has been holding them back from living a full, complete life. Her passion stems from her own journey in healing and knowing how challenging yet rewarding the expedition is. Her goal is to not only see clients realize they are survivors but to watch the transformation that occurs when they begin to thrive. It is this passion that brings Briana to The Last Resort as the Director of Trauma Resolution and Family Wellness. Briana is excited about the opportunity she has at TLR to be part of a program that not only changes clients’ lives but also the lives of their families through their robust Family Wellness Program. It truly takes a village, and finding a program that provides space and balance for both 12-Step recovery and the therapeutic work of trauma resolution is exactly what called Briana home to TLR. Briana enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, as well as watching her niece and nephew grow up. She enjoys reading, watching movies and sports, and loves to travel.
