About Us

Brianna Badenhop, LPCC, CST

Brianna has always enjoyed helping others discover ways to live a more fulfilling life.  She views her clients holistically and does not define them by the symptoms that led them to therapy. Brianna is one of a very few therapists in the Columbus area that is passionate about working with the geriatric population.

Brianna has advanced training in Sex Therapy and is a Certified Sex Therapist recognized by AASECT.  She is also a Kink-Knowledgeable Professional.  She is happy to discuss topics related to intimacy that may include kink, polyamory, the LGBTQIAP+ community, and consensual non-monogamy.

Brianna attended The Ohio State University, receiving her B.A. in Psychology, before completing her graduate studies at the College of William & Mary, specializing in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.  In her free time, she enjoys photography, scuba diving, traveling, and reading.
