Brianna Hurwitz joined the HFG Team in June 2021 as a pre-licensed psychotherapist. Brianna received her Master’s degree from the University of Maryland in clinical behavioral health social work with a focus in substance use disorders. While studying at the University of Maryland, Brianna gained specialized experience as an engaged fellow in the Substance Use Disorder Intervention Fellowship (SUDIF).
Before joining the Healthy Foundations Group, Brianna was the case manager at a treatment facility in Montgomery County. She worked with clients who struggled with addiction in outpatient (OP), intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial hospitalization (PHP) levels of care.
Brianna is very passionate about helping those who struggle with substance addiction and co-occurring disorders. She believes the therapeutic alliance is the most important dynamic. Brianna uses a strengths-based approach in combination with motivational interviewing to promote self-empowerment.
Brianna is very excited to join the HFG team and give back to the community she grew up in!
