Jodi Brin, Psy.D.

Dr. Jodi Brin is a licensed psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults. Her therapeutic style is best described as integrative, utilizing the framework that she sees as most helpful to each individual, couple, or family that she works with. She has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities including; play therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. She has worked with clients with various clinical issues including; depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, ADHD, as well as grief and loss.

Dr. Brin has a wonderful ability to connect and empathize with her clients, allowing her to use the therapeutic relationship to help her clients move in a positive, healing direction.

Dr. Brin believes that grief and loss experiences greatly effect our lives; whether it be the death of a loved one, loss of a pet, separation, divorce, loss of a job, a move to a new home, a child moving on to college, loss or change in health, etc. Dr. Brin believes that internalized, suppressed grief often leads to physical and mental health issues. After experiencing her own grief and loss, Dr. Brin was intrigued by the verbal and nonverbal messages she received from others in response to her loss. Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification program.

As a Certified Recovery Specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychosocial oncology. A member of the American Psychosocial Oncology Association, Dr. Brin works to treat the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and quality-of-life issues associated with cancer. Dr. Brin helps the client from the time of diagnosis, during treatment and survivorship, and through end of life issues and bereavement.

Dr. Brin earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University and her master’s and doctorate degrees from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. She is trained in play therapy, EMDR I and II, and is a Certified Grief and Loss Specialist. Dr. Brin is a member of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychosocial Oncology Association.
