Briena Pearl, MA, R-DMT, began her professional music career in 2013 with the band Deep Swell (Weathermaker Music) and went on to play in various bands throughout her 20’s before setting her sights on earning a Masters in Counseling Psychology to focus her attention on supporting mental health and addiction recovery.
Dedicated to sobriety, Pearl strives to help adolescents and adults to overcome addictions, address grief and loss, and tend to relational issues. She is passionate about reaching beyond what is considered clinical, and into the realms of creativity to discover and develop healthy habits for the daily maintenance of wellness.
When Briena discovered Rock to Recovery®, she leapt at the opportunity to get involved. Strong and expressive, Briena’s voice evokes her roots, the Spirit of Appalachia and the Soul of New Orleans with story-telling magic and the often rebellious brazenness of Rock and Roll.
Briena proudly facilitates Rock to Recovery® groups serving Air Force Wounded Warriors (AFW2), adults and adolescents in treatment for mental health and addiction issues, incarcerated youth, and other non-profit organizations. Her candid transparency makes her a relatable and reliable Rock.N.Roll.Therapist.
