I am Dr. Brian Burgess, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of California. I have worked as a mental health counselor for over 10 years. I obtained my MA in clinical psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in 2009 and was licensed as a clinical counselor shortly thereafter. I earned my PsyD in clinical psychology at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in 2017. I ran a group private practice and mental health student training center in Chicago from 2009 until June of 2017 at which time I moved to Northern California. In early 2020 I acquired a second residence/office in Riverside county in Southern California. I am a mental health generalist with a wide range of therapeutic training, skills and experiences. Areas of focus have included family systems therapy, client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior skills, motivational counseling, individual counseling, group counseling, couples counseling, LGBTQIA affirming psychology, psychological assessment, developmental disability assessment and treatment including diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders, and most recently I have been working with patients in a forensic setting. My private practice is built around diversity, respect, caring for the individual and professionalism in all aspects of my work. I welcome you to peruse my profile and set up an appointment with me if you believe I am a good fit for your particular needs. Thank you and I wish you all the best.

Dr.Burgess seems very helpful and understanding .
Very helpful and responsive.
Dr. Burgess, right off the bat, made me feel safe and confident in sharing. He's an incredible listener and brings up thoughtful ideas or suggestions without being overbearing. It has been a surprisingly helpful experience, especially because this is my first time doing something like this.
He is the best!
Dr. Burgess is one of the best counselors I have had. He is understanding and supportive while keeping me on track throughout our conversations. Which helps since I tend to ramble at times.
I have had many counselors over the years. Dr. Burgess makes me feel heard and validated when I am overcome with self doubt. He takes detailed notes and helps remind me of past sessions so I can maintain my goals over time. He is the reason I have recommended this app to coworkers and friends.
Dr. Burgess is a very good active listener. He has helped me for almost a month with my mental health issues, (anxiety and trauma). I like his style and approach, which prompts me to stay on a specific path and helps me stay focused on my therapy goals.
Dr. Burgess is a very active listener that knows how to provide a safe environment for me to express myself and help gently guide me to release emotions I often hold back. I appreciate his style of working and genuine care and concern.
