Hello, and welcome to Dreaming Tree Counseling! I am so glad you’re here! My name is Brooke Towns (she/her/hers), and I am the practice owner and a fully Licensed Master's Level Social Worker (LMSW).
Throughout my career as a therapist, I have worked intimately with: the Family Court system, Community Mental Health, rural and impoverished school systems, and private practice. My time serving individuals in these settings taught me that trauma does not discriminate, and that the root of the pain and suffering I continue to witness is unresolved traumatic stress.
It was my experiences learning from these individuals that sparked my passion for trauma work and led me to become a therapist specializing in treating Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, among various other mental heath issues.
I have since gone on to pursue training in various trauma modalities including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, mindfulness and somatic body work, ego state therapy, Internal Family Systems, and structural dissociation models.

I, as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, have a passion for working with this population and strive to provide a safe and affirming environment in which to explore, process, heal, and grow.
I am also able to provide letters of referral for gender-affirming procedures. I believe in helping individuals work towards their goals and feel strongly about each individual's right to be their true and authentic self.
