Dr. Brandi Seaman, Ph.D.(she/her)
I am Dr. Brandi Seaman, and I am thrilled to be a part of your rehabilitation journey! As a Rehabilitation Psychologist, I’m passionate about helping individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions improve their quality and life and maximize their functional abilities.
I received a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience with a minor in psychology from Scripps College, as well as a master’s degree in psychology and a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of New Mexico. Additionally, I completed an APA-accredited internship as well as a two-year APA specialty-accredited postdoctoral fellowship in rehabilitation psychology at the VA Palo Alto Healthcare System in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I have worked with a wide array of individuals with a variety of neurological conditions, including acquired/traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, acquired/traumatic vision loss, chronic pain, and amputation. I provide individual and family psychotherapy and frequently conduct co-treatment sessions with physical therapy and occupational therapy.
In therapy I utilize empirically supported treatments including acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. I use a client-centered, strengths-based approach and collaboratively work with individuals to develop treatment goals that are consistent with their values. I work with individuals to address a variety of psychological concerns, including adjustment to disability, anxiety, depression, identity and role changes, managing stressors, and coping with chronic health conditions.
Outside of [re+active], I love to ski, travel, attend live concerts and shows, bake, and watch Formula 1 racing. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you reach your rehabilitation goals. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
