Brenna Iyampillai , MS, LMHC

I am a licensed mental health therapist and founder of the Mental Health Center of the Palm Beaches. My journey in mental health began with earning my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University. I further enhanced my skills through an enriching internship as a mental health therapist at the Faulk Center for Counseling in Boca Raton, Florida. This journey has provided me with a broad spectrum of therapeutic knowledge.

In my practice, I work with a broad range of difficulties and specialize in helping individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and the aftermath of trauma. I believe in the power of evidence-based treatments and primarily utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to support my clients. These approaches help in breaking free from negative patterns and fostering healthier ways to cope. 

I also have specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). My therapeutic process is collaborative and integrative, focusing on teaching sustainable skills for self-care and self-love. I am passionate about guiding my clients towards developing inner peace and emotional well-being, helping them not just to survive their challenges, but to thrive and grow through them.
