I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with 7 years of counseling experience and 20 years of mental health experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, psychosis, attention, substance abuse, and trauma.
My counseling style is gentle and non-directive while assisting clients to develop their own paths to positive changes in their lives. I will not chastise or talk down to clients; however, I will challenge their irrational thoughts and inconsistencies, but in a non-confrontational manner that does not leave the client thinking he or she is attacked. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, humanistic, and rational-emotive therapy to facilitate self-awareness so the client is empowered to change. I believe treating a person is more important than treating a diagnosis which allows me to listen to the client’s subjective concerns.
The majority of people will work towards better emotional health, but often they do not know how to do that. If you are ready to begin a journey to feeling better about yourself and life, I am ready to guide and support you.
Additional areas of focus: Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Coping with Natural or Human-Caused Disaster
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Brian is very good at listening and repeating back what he hears to ensure understanding. He's also great at tackling difficult spots from various directions to help process those feelings.
