About Me

I am a licensed in the state of Tennessee as an LPC/MHSP. I have worked both in inpatient and outpatient setting providing therapy services for the last 4 years. I have worked with a wide range of concerns such as suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, and communication problems.

My therapeutic approach is inclusive and focused on building a relationship with each client. I believe this process allows both the client and I to develop a plan for them to see change in a timely manner! I use strategies such as solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I believe this combination of approaches allows me to meet each client exactly where they are! I have also recently had some training in EMDR through and EMDRIA approved intensive training and I am receiving consultation regularly as I work to become certified.

I believe each person deserves respect and consistency within relationships. I understand that life is full of challenges, and I am here to both support and compassionately challenge you as you seek to make change!

I look forward to meeting you!

Brandon is very insightful, and I always appreciate how he listens first and responds when needed. He really understands people and situations!
Brandon also encourages me to make my own decisions, which fuels and empowers my growth as an individual. His wisdom and knowledge far exceeds his limited years of experience. Don't let the numbers fool you!

I've found Brandon to be extremely helpful and insightful. I appreciate his sense of commitment to finding patterns and identifying areas that need work so that we can make progress in a timely manner. I feel like we've already made huge strides together in only a few sessions and I always look forward to our sessions, even though he challenges me! He far exceeds my expectations of what I thought this process would be like.

It's only been one session so far but I believe he is experienced in the issues that I have and he sends me messages throughout the week that let's me know he take an interest in my issues.

Brandon has been very through and I appreciate his thought-provoking exercises between sessions.

Written by N.I. on Apr 13, 2022 after therapy with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Down to earth guy who gets me. I don’t feel like I’m being judged at all when I talk to him and I feel comfortable enough to share what’s really going on which I’m not always the best at with others. Definitely would recommend!

Work with me!
