I was lucky enough to get to be a part of a very awesome 3-month intensive class with Dr. Bren. I had been searching for such a class for a long time. The class was fun, rewarding, and everything I hoped it would be. It was also very challenging--both technically and conceptually, but overall mind-blowing and even life-changing (in a very positive way). All throughout the course, Dr. Bren was very supportive of us and genuinely wanted us to succeed in learning the material and techniques! I felt that this caring attitude wasn't motivated by job security or student retention (which are not bad things), but--this may sound a little corny--because she genuinely cared about making the world a better place. And best of all, the class worked for me, I was able to learn the material and apply it in my life!

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living. — Anais Nin Dr. Bren, in my humble opinion, is a contemporary alchemist in that she uses a special mix of Jungian psychology, personal soulful journey anecdotes, meditation, dream analysis and even astropsycholgy to help you understand your own intuition and insights. She helped me to view myself with objectivity and curiosity. The soul is the journey and she will help you immensely on this path. I have also been a part of Dr. Bren’s soul group for several years. She helps us work on our deep beliefs, knowing that beliefs control behavior and shape our world full of possibilities.

Dr. Bren is truly a top notch guide that can help you dive deeper into the territory of your self in a supportive & empowering way. Dr. Bren knows her stuff and relies on an intimate knowledge of Jungian concepts to help you unlock the doors or blocks that have held you back in the world & in your life. As an MFT myself, I can attest to Dr. Bren's razor sharp ability to help you get to the heart of the matter with a gentle, accepting compassion that leaves you feeling fully validated & never judged. If you need a little help from an expert, Dr. Bren will not disappoint.

I've greatly benefitted from Dr. Bren's extensive knowledge, passion, and dedication in both my individual and group sessions with her. She has a very intuitive understanding of psycho-energetics, defense mechanisms, and shadow patterns that her clients experience. She is very open to wherever the client is wanting to go, and teaches clients to open up to their own empowerment and self-leadership, while also providing insights on any blind spots they may experience along the way. Dr. Bren is great at holding space for the groups and allowing for maximum sharing and linking of experiences between group members. She is a compassionate therapist and there is much to be gained from working with her!

Dr. Bren is the best therapist I've ever worked with in ten years. I keep going back because I see results. I found her when I was going through the darkest period of my life. It's just shy of a year, and I've already started turning my life around. I can tangibly feel and see the positive change she has impacted in my life. Of course it takes two, but Dr. Bren is a fierce partner in helping these changes come into your life. Not only does she bring practicality and logic to a situation, she also pays attention to intuition, synchronicity and patterns. She can look at my astrological chart, interpret my dreams and still bring sense and reasoning to whatever I'm going through. She is a patient listener and is not afraid to tell me the truth. Her Buddhist approach helps re-instill my faith in a greater power and gives me tools to better my life daily. She is constantly conducting research to understand more in her field and to relate to all generations, which is great because I'm a millennial. These are all the qualities I look for in a great therapist. Thank you Dr. Bren!

For over more than a decade I have been on a dedicated spiritual path of healing and awakening to higher consciousness. In that time, I have explored numerous empowerment programs, done a deep dive into Buddhist and other spiritual teachings and had many one-on-one sessions with brilliant healers, guides, and astrology gurus. Nothing in all of that compares to the profound transformation and awakening that I experienced with Dr Bren's deeply personal and unique approach to uncovering the very blueprint of my soul journey. There is absolutely nothing more powerful that I have experienced in radically shifting how I engage with myself and the world around me.

Dr. Bren helped me find my strength and my courage during a very rough time in my life. Her caring connection allowed me to discover and relate to parts of myself that needed healing. She is a gifted and generous healer. Her energy is grounded yet bright, hopeful and curious.
Margaret M. (Medical Exec.)
As a foreigner from another country in a new school, my first few months here in LA where very tough and traumatic for me. Dr Bren was my life saver and provided unconditional support from the moment GO. She deeply cares, is intuitively accurate and has this penetrating wisdom that has allowed me to understand myself better and get to the root of my fears. Working with her really allowed me to let go and focus on what is most important for my life.
