About Me

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a strength based therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your potential and improve your overall feelings of well being. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. It can be hard to understand the patterns that run through our lives because we are so close to them. With gentleness and respect I work with clients to better understand areas that are holding them back. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

I am a licensed Psychotherapist and have over 12 years experience practicing psychotherapy with individuals wanting to work on a variety of mental health, interpersonal, and relationship issues.

Brandon is a wonderful and supportive listener extremely capable of gauging my needs as a client. He is empathetic and very clearly has taken the effort to really get to know and understand me, which makes me feel comfortable sharing with and trusting him.

Brandon is a skillful counselor. I like that he does provide video live sessions and not only messaging.

Brandon has literally saved my life and transformed it completely. God Bless all you people regulating and running this beautiful ship BetterHelp is so incredibly well. Making miracles day in day out! Thank you is just simply not enough. Thank you!!!

Written by B.O. on Jan 31, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

I have really appreciated Better Help and my counselor Brandon. I like how you can write out what's going on and take your time instead of trying to get everything out you need to in a 30 min. session with an in-person counselor. Also, I don't have to leave work early or deal with traffic to talk with my counselor. It's an amazing value.

Written by L.O. on Jan 18, 2018 after counseling with Brandon for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, self esteem, and career

Brandon is truly one of a kind, I'm so lucky and grateful I got matched with him 1 1/2 years ago.

Despite my intermittent nature of multiple months of being distant from this website due to life getting in the way, he always checks in to make sure I am doing well. It is rare to find practitioners who are that diligent and caring for the wellness of their patients.

Previously I had been against the concept of counseling for all the years of my adult life but taking a chance on using the BetterHelp website and getting to work with Brandon, I wish I had seeked out counseling sooner in my life. But there is never a better time than the present and I always feel that he helps me put my best foot forward in life.

Thanks Brandon!

To keep this short and sweet let me just say that Brandon has been so much more than I could have ever expected from a counselor. He's changed my life for the better and has been there for me. I truly all so much of my happiness and success to him. If you're reading this and considering him as a counselor, do yourself a favor and do it!

Written by H.E. on Oct 30, 2017 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks

So far, it's been nice to talk to someone. Everyone hurts and I do too.

Written by H.A. on Aug 22, 2017 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, self esteem, and depression

Brandon is amazing; a thoughtful and insightful counselor who really listens deeply and helps me get to the heart of the struggles I'm facing. I felt like God sent me this right person at the right time to support me during some very challenging and emotionally tumultuous years. I'm very grateful to have been connected with Brandon!

Written by V.E. on Aug 07, 2017 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, career, and bipolar

I have been working with Brandon for a short amount of time but I already feel the improvements we've made. He seems to have a good understanding of thought patterns and challenges that addicts like myself deal with. And he is compassionate and has a non judgmental response to what I have to say about my thought life. So far this has been very helpful. It is good to have someone in your life who is in a neutral position and can give you a "bigger picture" view.

Written by S.C. on Aug 01, 2017 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and sleeping

I feel confident in Brandon Mason thus far. He has read very throughly and carefully though my whole messages to him. He seems to understand what I am experiencing and going through. He explains the why's and gives me some suggestions and then we talk about them. But what I do notice is that I "feel" he is listening and does want to make a difference in at least my life.

I've been meeting with Brandon for about three months now and he has been fantastic at helping me work through both work and relationship-based anxieties. He has given me great tools to work through my issues and always prompts me with insightful and thoughtful questions. Thanks so much Brandon for all your help!

Written by K.R. on Apr 25, 2017 after counseling with Brandon for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

Brandon was immediately easy to communicate with and made me feel comfortable from the first message. I feel confident that I can reach him when I need to and am learning a lot about myself. I'm a non professional scientist and he gives me the tools and works with me to aid in my own recognition of what may be going on.

Brandon opened my eyes to a lot about myself in a definition type of way. He guided me towards the problem I may be having in textbook form and giving me solution to each and every one. This really helped me identify that I was going through what a lot of others were going through as well. He was wonderful.

Written by N.S on Mar 30, 2016 after counseling with Brandon for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, self esteem, anger, and depression

Brandon is a pleasure to communicate with. Always probing, while still giving you space to express and reflect.

Written by E.R on Mar 19, 2016 after counseling with Brandon for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and self esteem

Brandon has been immensely helpful while I have done some self-reflection after a bad fight with my partner. He is a perfect combination of patient, appropriately comical, intuitive, and assertive. From his valuable suggestions for books to read on my own to help me understand myself better, to his apt dissections of my descriptions of my partner and relationship, Brandon has been a great asset for me. I know it is his job to work with folks such as myself, but he has made the experience seem less like work and more like talking to my own conscience and sub-conscious. Thank you for all that you do Brandon!

Written by T.O on Mar 15, 2016 after counseling with Brandon for 2 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Written by C.C on Sep 15, 2015 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks

Brandon is a damn good counselor. He's able to allow me to express myself by asking me the important questions that forces me to open up my feelings rather than bottle them in. Before Brandon, I didn't have much of a support network, because my best friends have jobs and lives of their own. Brandon is like my sounding board and sympathetic ear, when I feel lost and alone, which is often. This way, I can at least have the strength to get by each day, instead of wallowing in sadness.
