The Reverend Dr. Dawnn M. Pirani Brumfield earned her Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Care and Counseling from Chicago Theological Seminary (2016). She holds a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School (2009); and an advanced certificate in Counseling from The Center for Religion and Psychotherapy (2015). From her doctoral thesis, Rev. Dawnn has developed a leadership clinic and counseling practice designed for individuals, businesses, and religious organizations. It is intended to stretch a person’s competence, confidence, and cultural awareness.
She is a passionate counselor, teacher, and consultant who engages her clients in ways that matter. Her personal mission is to journey with people toward wholeness. She is most proud of the opportunities she’s been afforded to consult, teach and preach in South Africa and in Ghana, West Africa; and serve in Atlanta, GA as a chaplain at the Metro State Women’s Prison and at the Atlanta Medical Center.
Dawnn works tirelessly to make counseling accessible to everyone. She does this by offering varying fee schedules, various times, and multiple practice locations. Dawnn feels strongly that wholeness should be available to ALL people regardless of race, gender, class or culture, sexual orientation, family design, and physical, emotional, or mental conditions. Dawnn enjoys reading, writing, watching sports, and spending time with her partner, family, and friends. Most of all, she loves connecting with people; helping to bring purpose for an individual’s life to fruition.
