Hollie A. Brooks, LMHC

I am a licensed mental health counselor serving clients via Telehealth, throughout New York  State. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

Treatment Approach

I use a variety of approaches to address my clients’ unique needs. Treatment plans utilize an eclectic blend of behavioral, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior therapy, incorporating tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals who practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

***Online Therapy is not a good fit for everyone.

Online Therapy is not always sufficient for people with certain mental health concerns. Examples of situations in which Online Therapy would not be a good fit include:

1. When someone has thoughts about harming themselves or others, or if they’ve recently harmed themselves or others.

***If a person is in a life-threatening or emergency situation you should seek out immediate in-person assistance by calling 911 or your local emergency number. “Emergencies” are life-threatening, or potentially violent, situations that demand an immediate response. In such instances, the public should summon police by calling “911.”


2. If someone appears to have delusions or hallucinations, online therapy would not be a good fit.

3. If someone is currently misusing drugs or alcohol, online therapy would not be a good fit.

4. If someone tends to have ongoing crisis issues, online therapy would not be a good fit.

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” -Kevyn Aucoin
