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 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 a great guy. Easy to talk to, attentive and insightful! Would recommend him to anyone with some stuff they’d like to talk through.

Brandon is not just a professional, he's very personable at the same time. Willing to go the distance with you, because he genuinely wants you to WIN. Plus, he's wise way beyond his years. I cannot recommend him enough!

I have had two sessions with Brandon.

He listens with empathy while challenging thought for a more positive outcome or perspective. In both sessions he has made me say, "I never thought of that! If I see it that way I feel better about my situation."

Absolutely loved working with him. I don’t like to open up to new people but he made me feel like he was just a friend I was talking to. I highly recommend him as a therapist. Only reason I stopped my subscription was due to money issues but 11/10 would definitely keep working with him if money wasn’t an issue.

Going great so far. Responsive, good balance of eliciting and suggesting. Would recommend.

Brandon is very down to earth. I enjoy talking to him because he makes me feel like I'm talking to my little brother
