About Me

Hello, thank you for taking the time to view my profile! I appreciate the opportunity to get to know you! I have a passion for supporting and helping others and I want to let you know I honor your decision to seek help. I know this can be a scary experience but I want you to know that I will support you 100 percent. I believe the strongest people in the world are those brave enough to ask for help when they need it.

I received my masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Phoenix in 2012. The previous 10 years were spent in Law Enforcement. The modalities I use most are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I utilize interventions from all schools of therapy depending on client need. Mindfulness, meditation, emotional freedom techniques, deep breathing and cognitive reframing are some of the tools I use to help my clients. I have experience working with individuals with anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief and loss and first responder resiliency. Again, I would like to thank you for reviewing my profile. I look forward to working with you.

It took a bit to find Mr. Woffinden but I am glad I did. He’s very supportive and you can tell he actually cares.

He is very kind and is very timely when responding. He doesn’t know me personally and still puts my best interest first

Brandon has been very good to help me find what I need to work on to help myself, and he has worked with me on my goals. He has not been pushy, and has allowed me to lead where I felt like we needed to go.

It's refreshing to have attentive replies when I need them. Brandon has provided me tangible tools that I could put into my daily practice right away.
He checks in with me, holding me accountable in doing the work I need to do. It's my life coach just a text away! Love it.

Tools: goal worksheet, thought worksheet

Working with Brandon has taught me to work on self worth and doing the little things. I've also learned not to feeling feeling guilty about asking for help.

He's understanding in so many different ways and willing to work with me on what ever I need to and doesn't judge or make me feel stupid.

He checks up on me all the time he knows that I find comfort in quotes and he sends them to me! He lets me vent and then helps me find perspective!:)

Very kind hearted and gives thoughtful answers and responses. He listens and allows you to lead the conversation.

Written by V.A. on Jun 15, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Brandon has been extremely helpful and compassionate. He responds quickly and with relevant and useful responses (which hasn’t always been the case for me with online therapy). He does so much more than just listen, although he listens very well. He has provided valuable insight and outside recommendations that I can do on my own and he follows up. The book that he recommended has really opened my eyes and helped change my perspective. He challenges some of the negative ways I am thinking and helps to identify some of my mental blind spots. I would highly recommend him to a friend!

I’ve been working with Brandon for about 2 weeks now. He has suggested some great books, one of which I have already finished! He’s also recommended some different coping techniques such as EFT, and Holotropic breath work. Excited to keep working on myself and finding my own path to spirituality and healing.

So far Brandon has been very helpful and understanding with my personal issues and I feel really safe and comfortable speaking with him. He is not pushy or domineering and seems to have a very light, gentle, respectful presence about him that I really appreciate. He also has a lot of insight and references for things that pertain to my issues. Wonderful therapist.

Brandon has been great to work with!!! He always checks in, and provides a lot of coping skills to help me!

Written by E.L. on May 12, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Brandon has helped me understand how to cope with my anxiety. He had helped so much already and it feels good to know I have someone who can help with my mental health.

Written by C.I. on May 07, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Brandon, so far, has been great. its still early, and i have a lot more to get through, but so far he's doing a great job in listening and helping me through. Its also nice to have someone to talk to about my issues that knows how to respond with more that just "Im sorry" or end in awkward silence. My depression is very up and down, so on my downs i will need him more than my ups.

I love Brandon, he is the reason I stayed on the app, I had another person treat me poorly, and Brandon redeemed the platform for me.

Written by E.M. on Apr 26, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

Brandon has been a great help! Even if I don't respond in a couple of days due to being busy, I know he will always respond when I send another message. He's quick to respond and gives me good worksheets to work through and identify problems I may have but also identify what I'm doing right. He's a really good guy!

Written by M.A. on Apr 15, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma and abuse

Brandon is responsive, and I really appreciate that. But from our first visit via video I saw something in his face that I haven't seen from counselors in the past - compassion. I appreciate the BetterHelp platform and model. It's a cool way to do counseling. But Brandon is making it work because he cares.

Written by T.A. on Feb 20, 2020 after counseling with Brandon for 3 weeks on issues concerning intimacy-related issues

I feel like a new person. The things that I've always wanted to do seem possible!! I'm so optimistic and I'm so grateful for the tools Brandon introduced to me. Thank you!
