Brandy Hart, LCSW

Brandy Hart is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working with kids, teens and adults in individual and group therapy settings. She received a master’s degree in social work from VCU and a bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from James Madison University. Her experiences as a Peace Corp volunteer and traveling provided her with appreciation and respect for the cultural influences unique to each client.

Brandy’s clinical frame of reference is rooted in humanism, multiculturalism, trauma and attachment, family systems, feminist theory and person-centered theory. In her work, she integrates concepts from psychodynamic theory, play therapy, narrative therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy to enhance and strengthen the therapeutic journey.

Her style is warm and relaxed; often using humor, curiosity, storytelling and playful sensory-based activities in her therapy sessions. She uses this style with a variety of populations and issues. These have included clients dealing with anxiety, depression, self harm behaviors, severe mental illnesses, personality disorders, grief / bereavement, complex PTSD, autism spectrum and co-occurring disorders, life transitions, and LGBTQIA+ issues. She has training in dialectical behavior therapy, emotion-focused family therapy, and therapeutic play.
