Briar Gartner is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Briar uses an interactive, integrative, strengths-based approach promoting self-worth and self-love when helping couples navigate the complexities of their relationship. Collaboratively working with you and your partner, she will work toward removing barriers in communication and rebuilding trust.

Her strong desire to create a collaborative, safe space fosters mutual respect, intimacy, and insight to help you and your partner overcome obstacles for greater fulfillment in many areas of your life.
