Most people believe vulnerability is weakness. But really, vulnerability is courage We must ask ourselves....are we willing to show up and be seen?

My name is Erin Bratsky and I am the owner and therapist at Brighter Sky Counseling.  For as long as I can remember helping others and talking with people  has been at the core of who I am.  I began my journey to become a therapist in my hometown of Bozeman, Montana, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Development.  I worked for several years as an Adult Case Manager in Bozeman.  In 2005 I began the next steps to becoming a therapist and I packed up and moved to Portland, Maine where I received my Master of Social Work from the University of New England.  

I returned to Montana where I worked providing therapy to youth and their families for 8 years.  Most recently my family and I moved to Billings where I expanded my experiences working in residential treatment centers and ongoing outpatient therapy.  Brighter Sky Counseling has now become my focus where I am please to offer therapy for adults and adolescents in an outpatient private practice setting.
