Brandon's main areas of focus are anxiety, fear, depression, and stress. These are all things that many people experience at some point in their lives. They are also typical of existential and spiritual crises. Existentialism in the context of counseling refers to finding meaning in life, especially when questions start to arise. Questions about personal values and sense of direction are common. These questions can be become especially frequent during major life transitions like starting or ending relationships, jobs, and geographical moves.
His experience is wide-ranging and includes private practice, employee assistance, and drug and alcohol settings. His counseling style is humanistic, person-centered. As such, he takes a non-judgmental approach that seeks to meet people where they are and to help them articulate what they’re experiencing including potential solutions for issues needing resolution. This point of view assumes that the therapist is not an expert on the person seeking help, but an assistant on the journey of self-discovery. Brandon has extensive experience in counseling individuals, couples, and families. He enjoys traveling and has lived in and visited over 30 countries. He’s an avid sports fan who also enjoys exercise, hiking, and reading.

Brandon always listens to me and respects my feelings and thoughts. He is very supportive and always has my best interest at hand.
Brandon is very attentive and took the time to get to the root of my challenges. He is very knowledgeable and recommended a lot of useful resources to supplement my therapy. He helped me learn how to manage my anxiety and patiently held me accountable for the work I needed to do to reach my therapy goals. Working with Brandon was a very worthwhile experience for me.
Brandon and I talked through messages and nearly weekly video or telephone calls for 6+ months. I was in a dark, scary, uncomfortable, anxious and depressed place when we started. His attention advice and listening really helped get me back on my feet and stay there during these ongoing troubles. I recommend him to anyone willing to give this venue of therapy a true shot.
Very professional, and able to suggest timely solutions.
Brandon has been very supportive and helpful in my journey. He has helped me process a trauma in very few sessions. He is warm, empathetic and interested. I am very appreciative of our work together.
Brandon is fantastic at diagnosing and helping me through some tough times. I really liked his style, insight and practical to the point exercises that helped me get better. Highly recommended
Brandon was very patient and he had a habit of rephrasing what I said so I could pretty much confirm whether or not that is exactly what I was feeling or wanted to say. He always responded timely and never made me feel judged. He never seemed annoyed especially when I came across a little snippy myself. I would recommend him.
Brandon is genuinely caring and never forgets anything I tell him so I never have to repeat myself. He is extremely supportive and usually quick to respond.
Brandon has been tremendously helpful to me. He listens to everything I say and helps me discern my larger feelings and patterns, which has been so important in working on my anxiety. His support is life-changing.
I talked to Brandon and I got to know very much about why I feel like I've felt the past months. He explained what my thoughts depend on, and what might be the case. I'm thankful for getting the opportunity to talk to him, as he knows his stuff very well :)
Brandon is very supportive, professional and regularly checks in with me. He not only listens but also provides me with practical exercises to unlock my thinking and stimulate me to see things in a different way. Thank you, Brandon!
I think Brandon Graf has helped me a lot so far. He always takes the time to reach out to me over the week if I don't message him first. Has a lot of techniques for dealing with stress and anxiety or depression and has shared a lot of helpful advice so far. Doesn't feel like a doctor or too professional but more personal. Video sessions have been very positive with him I would recommend him.
I liked working with Brandon, I felt he listened to my primary concern and was insightful when it came to ways to alter my life for the better.
Brandon has helped me to reveal some aspects of my life that I was not aware of. With this awareness I can then progress to addressing those aspects and thereby improve my life. I would like to thank Brandon for his commitment in helping me through a difficult time in my life.
Brandon helped me through some issues I realized about myself that damaged my marriage. He was attentive, and helped lay out some daily action plans, which is exactly what I needed. He checked up on me almost daily to see how I was doing, and was a great person to have as support that I could lean on.
