Brita Larson

Greetings, and thank you for visiting my Madison website! I am no longer practicing in Madison, Wisconsin as I have moved to Chicago and I am practicing at Chicago Counseling and Hypnosis. You can find me at chicagocounselinghypnosis.com

I am pleased to share that my colleague and fellow psychotherapist/hypnoanalyst, Brita Larson, is practicing in Madison, WI. Her office is near Whole Foods and the UW Hospital at the Quarry Arts Building on Hill St. Brita and I both use the same methods in our practices. With the most advanced form of clinical hypnosis, you can uncover and heal the roots of your symptoms with change that lasts.

If you are looking to receive the same kind of cutting-edge therapy that I provide, Brita is an excellent choice and I am wholeheartedly referring any new Wisconsin inquiries to her. She is a traditionally trained psychotherapist who received her training and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate School. She then completed an extensive private, 340 hour residency in clinical hypnoanalysis. She is passionate about providing quality, solutions-focused therapy for her clients: www.britalarsoncounseling.com or call/text her at (608) 571-7289.

Thank you. ~ Nina Pernecke

My Counseling and Psychotherapy Approaches

My gentle Rogerian, client-centered approach to your healing, at Madison Counseling Solutions, is to respectfully behold you, your experiences, and how they affect you. Based on your preferences of modality, be it Psychotherapy, Psychotherapeutic Hypnosis, or Brainspotting my work follows a general theme. I am solutions oriented:

  • Collaboratively unveiling the cause or location of the problem.
  • Removing this barrier or conditioned response through healing.
  • Unveiling your core truth, power and worth.
  • Helping you to move into your life with tools and lasting core strength
  • A hallmark of my work is the relative quickness of this process.


I work with adults who are looking to unveil their barriers, access their true, balanced core, who are looking for clarity, self-direction, security and healing in the following areas:

  • Mid-life renaissance
  • Things just aren’t “working”
  • College students’ issues of: performance, choices, stress, relationships
  • Difficulty living in the “adult world”, no matter your age (very common)
  • Depression, especially feeling disconnected and “dead inside”
  • Boundaries
  • Trauma
  • Assertiveness/Communication/Personal Power
  • Relationship issues
  • Self esteem
  • General life issues
  • Finding direction
  • Vocational issues
  • Anxiety
  • Other mood disorders

I see that my clients sit at the seat of overarching systems that contribute to their situation, whether it be family history, societal challenges or issues in personal development. I help to clarify what is running a person and to make adjustments in the interest of the client’s goals.

A complimentary 20 minute initial phone conversation is available to discuss services and to ensure the right fit for you.

What is possible for you in life? Are you ready for peace?
Replace self criticism, depression, anxiety, trauma response, insecurity with a powerful discovery of your own, unshakable core worth to take with you and live through, sustainably.

What is secretly running you?
Unveil the barriers, remove them and find your most powerful core of security and peace, to access all of the time, especially when you need it most.

Do unpleasant people invade your space, get to you? Would you rather be at the affect of unpleasant people? Or…
Or firmly, securely footed in your powerful core, with full control over your experience?

How do you treat yourself in  your head?
End the torture. Now. Sustainably take a valuable, loving and powerful self reference with you into your life. Surfing this ocean of life can be easier.

Are you in need of support in a particularly difficult time and simply need to talk to someone in a safe, comfortable and accepting environment?
I am here for you.

I encourage you to explore these pages about my services. Beginning therapy is an important decision that could bring about decreased stress, greater well-being and contentment with the direction of your life.

Madison Counseling Solutions is located in beautiful and friendly Madison, Wisconsin,
on the near west side.
