Brad is a great therapist who is extremely helpful and knowledgeable regarding addiction and the disease. He was also supportive, on time and provide services that allowed me to identify the root issues that caused my addiction. I would recommend for anyone looking to start and make strides towards recovery to learn from him.

Brad is an awesome therapist. What I think I appreciate most is that he’s not afraid to say it how it is. He doesn’t beat around the bush and tells me what I need to hear regardless of whether or not I’ll like it. I’ve experienced a lot of improvement in the year I’ve been working with him. Highly recommend.

I've been working with Brad for about 6 months now, and he's definitely earned the review by now! For reference, I've also worked with two therapists at different times previously.
In a nutshell, Brad is awesome! If you truly endeavor to work on yourself, Brad will hit the ground running with you. From our first session, we dove right into the big problem area that brought me to therapy this time around. Brad can smoothly navigate the dynamics of your situation(s), and his depth of experience is reflected in the fact that he doesn't bat an eye at what you think might be a shameful for "crazy" thought.
In our time together, we've touched on many subjects that have come up in my life, ranging from career/aspirations to childhood trauma to relationships. For lack of a better phrase, Brad always helps me see the light, without merely telling me what to think. He is also very good at identifying goals to work on outside of sessions, which goes back to my comment that if you really are committed to working on yourself, he is a wonderful asset. Highly recommend!

Brad has been so awesome to work with. He keeps it real, gives solid advice, and YES, he does give transparent feedback accompanied by necessary "homework". Brad is probably the best therapist that I have worked with.
