Gabrielle Brown Sikpi, LMFT, LPSC
Gabrielle is the owner and CEO of Solace Couples and Family Therapy. After experiencing therapy as a teenager, she fell in love with the process and knew what her life’s work would be. Shortly following her undergraduate studies at Middle Tennessee State University, she pursued her graduate degree from Lipscomb University in Marriage and Family Therapy. To further compliment her clinical skills, she attended Tennessee State University where she became a Licensed Professional School Counselor.
Her journey began ten years ago while providing in home mental health services to families in the Middle Tennessee area. Since then she has worked in both academic and clinical settings supporting children, parents, individuals, families, and couples in reaching their goals and developing skills to enhance their relationships. Gabrielle is an AAMFT member trained in conflict management, mediation, and is Prepare/Enrich Certified. She has tons of experience with social and emotional learning, learning differences, and primary education related issues. Tailoring interventions to each client, she uses a variety of systemic modalities including structural therapy, strategic therapy, experiential therapy, solution focused therapy, Gottman, and EFT. Passionate about reducing the stigma around mental health and bridging the gap between therapy and marginalized communities, she also works with local non profits to help make therapy more accessible.
Gabrielle is a wife, a mother, and a Nashville native who enjoys traveling, great food, and spending time with loved ones. When she is not working, she is probably googly-eyed over her sweet baby boy or scouring Pinterest for home organization, decor, and fashion inspiration. She loves planning unique experiences and events, trying new things, and leaning into life’s little joys. Both fierce and empathetic, she is dedicated to creating unforgettable therapeutic experiences for her clients
