Brandon Graf

(LPC)

About Me

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.

Written by A.K. on Aug 10, 2019 after counseling with Brandon for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

Brandon has been the best person I have spoken to about my personal issues. I appreciate how he dedicates his time to actually listen and give advice when necessary. He is very professional in his manner and attitude, but is open to speaking very casually too.I feel like he gently pushes you into the direction you yourself choose to go, he's there if you need help. But he doesn't over do it, which I find is also very important and healthy for both ends. I recommend him to those who need someone to help listen/ organise their thoughts, assist them in tracking goals, or need a little push to get through their week :)

Brandon has been great and really instrumental in helping me get through a difficult period in my life. He is non judgmental, responsive and a great listener. He is also great at reading into what you are saying and finding the underlining cause of your fears and helping you work through it. I’m excited to continue the work to heal with the help of Brandon.

My counselor has shown me many ways to overcome what I have been going through. I never have the time to go to a therapist so I really like the convenience of the app, especially because my counselor responds within a few hours.

Brandon is a strong listener, very specific in his analyses on what my problems might root at, giving a different point of view that I might have missed out, and always active to reply to messages usually within the day.

I have only worked with Brandon for a brief time but have found him to be caring, attentive and beyond willing to listen and help! I have high hopes for this counselor-patient relationship.

Written by G.U. on Jun 11, 2019 after counseling with Brandon for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Brandon has helped me a lot ever since he began counseling me. He certainly knows how to ask the right questions, and does not appear to be judgemental, quite the contrary. He listens with the intent to understand and that is why he is such a good counselor.

Written by Z.A. on Jun 06, 2019 after counseling with Brandon for 2 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and self esteem

Brandon has helped me to really begin to get on top of issues I have been struggling with for years. I would recommend BetterHelp over traditional counseling any day. I get to interact with my counselor at least once a day and progress has been very quick. I feel better and have a much clearer perspective on things than before I started this process.

Written by K.A. on Jan 10, 2019 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Brandon is exceptional. He is able to find strengths and use those to his better ability to help his client. Also, since he is familiar with the area in which I live, he has been a great resource to recommend other people who may be of a benefit. I like his candor he doesn’t claim he can do it all but points you in the direction of others who can play instrumental roles in your wellbeing.

Brandon is a good listener and provided valuable advice. He is patient and definitely doesn't push you to share anything you don't want to. Honestly, I don't see why anyone would need to see someone in person, the live sessions work great.

Written by J.A. on Jul 26, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 5 months on issues concerning relationship, family, parenting, self esteem, anger, and career

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.

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

Written by T.R. on May 25, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, and career

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.

Written by R.A. on May 14, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 2 months

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.

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.

Written by J.E. on Feb 28, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship, and family

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.
