Brooke Bendix

From my early years as a camp counselor to leading groups for teens in clinical practice, my mission is to empower the next generation to lead a more valued life. Growing up in today’s world isn’t easy! As a licensed psychotherapist, I help children, teens, and families develop healthy skills to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. This form of evidence-based practice, known as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), helps to teach the next generation how to cope better with life’s stressors – ultimately reducing anxiety!
With over 14 years of clinical experience in the field of mental health, my practice is rooted in creating a strong therapeutic relationship built on trust and compassion.
I believe it is my calling to support kids and their families.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University and a Master of Arts (AM) degree from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. After ten years of practice, I completed a Clinical Fellowship in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy from the University of Chicago. I also serve as part-time faculty at Wayne State University School of Social Work.

Rachel Freidenreich

Taking the first steps toward change can often feel overwhelming! I am here to guide you through this journey of life-long change. I am passionate about partnering with my clients as they discover their resilience and develop a deeper understanding of themselves to improve their quality of life. As a Licensed Masters’ Social Worker, I hold a specialty of being a trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapist. This enables me to be highly attuned to each client and provide a warm, secure, and safe base to explore their feelings and experiences as we work through different areas of trauma.

With several years of experience providing therapeutic services to people of all ages and backgrounds. I particularly love working with children, adolescents, and adults as I find joy in watching them develop and grow. My specific areas of expertise include: trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, anxiety, behavioral issues, depression, family conflict, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, and building a healthier self-esteem. Your story, your feelings, and what you have to say matter, and I am here to support you along your journey to accomplishing your goals!

Sometimes we need support to help us as we are navigating along the journey of life. Do you find you spend most of your day in fear-based thinking? Or does it feel like you are just going through the motions and lacking purpose? I work collaboratively with my clients to help them to build resiliency. I have a passion for empowering my clients to feel confident to not only cope with their current challenges but to build trust in their ability to cope with the future challenges that will come their way.

Creating a safe inclusive space for clients to open up is a core value of my practice. Feeling comfortable to explore thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that are causing distress, I believe, is one of the most important aspects of therapy. I specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, life adjustments, low self-esteem, and interpersonal conflicts.

As every client is unique, I utilize an integrative approach that services each client’s specific needs and goals. At Therapyology we are all about empowering the next generation. Together, let’s continue to normalize reaching out for support and breaking the stigma of mental health!


My education and training began in earning my bachelor’s degree at the University of Central Florida in Psychology. Following that, I went on to become a Certified Yoga Teacher which sparked my interest in the use of mindfulness and the mind-body connection in the field of mental health. My passion for mental health then grew as I went on to pursue my Masters of Social Work degree from Wayne State University.

Talking with a therapist can bring up lots of mixed feelings and uncertainty. That’s why we’re here! Therapy can be an empowering, safe space to process whatever you might be facing. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental, space to provide support for children and teens by supporting them with their mental health. It is important for me to meet my clients where they are at and to recognize their unique experiences and individual needs. Together, we work through the tough stuff so you can get to a place in your life where you feel confident with yourself!

As a clinical therapist, I specialize in working with teens and tweens who are experiencing grief and loss, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and self-harm. A passion of mine is working with the LGBTQIA+ community in helping them to explore and establish their identity. I believe in the importance of a team approach collaborating with parents, teachers, and other health professionals to provide the best possible outcomes.

I obtained my master’s degree in Social Work from Wayne State University and bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Georgia State University. The past few years I have spent working in a school-based setting where I provide individual counseling to students, facilitate groups, parent consultation, and crisis intervention.
