The Family First Team

steve weinman-family-first-therapy-port-


Hi, I’m Steve Weinman, the owner, clinical supervisor, and a therapist with FFT. I was raised in a wonderful small town in Connecticut. Then I was off to Tallahassee, FL where I earned my bachelor’s degree in family and child sciences from Florida State University.

Afterwards, I moved back north to earn my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of Rhode Island. I loved living in a quaint New England town, but when I visited Savannah it felt like home. I fell in love with the city, including the people, the history, and the family first lifestyle. Now I live and practice as a therapist in Savannah GA, a dream come true.

Steve’s Support

I love when our clients reach their therapy goals, and I’d love to help you too. That’s why I’d highly recommend you taking a look at our wonderful therapists. I’m proud to say I think we all do wonderful work and would be great guides through your therapeutic journey. Thanks for your consideration and please continue on to get a feel for them as well.

Danai Brown, M.A.

Now offering Saturday appointments!

My passion for mental health stems from personal experience. I grew up with close loved ones living with mental illness, have overcome grief and depression, and continue to maintain effective coping skills to decrease my own anxiety. I’ve also seen how therapy has helped me during these times, and I want to help you experience the benefits of life with therapy too.

I earned my bachelor’s in Psychology and master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both from South University. I’d like to extend my dedication and work together with you by establishing goals and steps for you to overcome your current problems. Commitment to the process is key. I believe in taking time and working on wellness, consistently. Thanks for getting an idea of who I am, and I look forward to helping you reach your goals for therapy!

What I can help with:

Anxiety, anger management, family conflict, couples issues and marriage counseling, trauma, abuse, depression, Autism, grief, general life struggles, and more!

What Steve says:

There is no one more positive and personable than Danai. Her clients trust her and always seem to be coming out of session laughing, smiling, and better off than when they arrived.”

Kylee Rogers, LAPC

Hi, my name is Kylee Rogers and I’ve been creatively and collaboratively working with children ages 5-14 towards their therapy goals. I’ve utilized talk, play, and art to find solutions to your problems.

I earned my bachelor’s in Child and Family Development from Georgia Southern, and my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University.

What I can help with:

I’ve recently taken a step back from my position as a therapist to accept the new job of a full-time mom! Although I’ve hit pause on seeing clients, I have no doubt that you are in the best hands with the other therapists at Family First.

What Steve says:

Kylee does amazing work with her kids and families, and we’re excited to see her new chapter as a mom. We’ll be happy to let everyone know when she’s back!

Briana Perry, Intern

Hi, I am Briana Perry, a student intern with Family First Therapy. I am a senior at Georgia Southern University, Armstrong Campus, studying Psychology in the College of Behavior and Social Sciences. I am pursuing a degree in psychology because I believe mental health is just as vital as physical health. 

After graduation, I plan to attend graduate school to continue my education in psychology and counseling to fulfill my goal of becoming a licensed counselor. My interest is to work with the youth and highlight the positive outcomes associated with counseling. Also, to demolish the negative stigma associated with seeking counseling within my community. I chose Family First for my internship because I like that it is a private practice setting that offers various counseling services for various ages. During my time here, I hope to learn how to operate in a professional counseling setting, gain hands-on field and learning experience, and strengthen my communication skills with clients. 

What Steve says:

Briana brings a great passion for destigmatizing therapy to our team and community. I’m excited for her to observe and shadow our therapists in order to help further pursue this passion.”
