Mrs. Brooke Sena is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of California and has been providing Behavioral Health services for over two decades.
Mrs. Sena received her Master’s Degree in Psychology from California State University, Chico, and obtained her license in 2008. In addition, Mrs. Sena obtained a Master’s in Business Administration in 2017.
With over 20 years of extensive experience in both psychology and business fields, Mrs. Sena has developed a style of therapy that is authentic, supportive, and highly effective. Creating a safe and non-judgmental space allows clients to explore difficult and sometimes painful emotions, thoughts, and experiences. She strives to deeply understand her client’s unique perspective and believes that feeling heard and understood is the first step toward healing. By using a strength-based and mindfulness approach to counseling, Mrs. Sena’s clients develop specific and attainable goals to facilitate change. She is skilled at motivating, coaching, and inspiring clients to establish a strong vision for their lives.
Brooke was trained in Client-Centered Therapy but uses a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities to meet her clients’ individual needs. She also employs cognitive-behavioral techniques, believing that the first step to feeling better is to be aware of how we think and react to stress. Self-awareness is important and, by challenging irrational beliefs, clients can make changes for the better. In addition, Mrs. Sena applies Solution-Focused Therapy if brief therapy is appropriate.
Things that make Brooke happy are spending time outside with her two Golden Retrievers, Henry & Penny. She also loves to relax at home with her husband, Brad, while watching a good Netflix series. She enjoys cooking, traveling, long walks, swimming, and exploring new places. Spending time with family and friends is her greatest joy. She practices mindfulness, self-awareness & self-care on a daily basis and encourages others to do the same.
