Brian Florence

LCSW

About me

My name is Brian Florence and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (SW17351) with over 5 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, psychosis, and addiction issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is interactive, engaging, and with a touch of humor. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, empowerment, and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Congratulations on taking the first steps along the journey of change. Deciding to speak with a therapist can be a source of great anxiety, especially due to the stigma that continues to be pervasive in our society. I'm aware of the common hesitations and fears, and ready to make the transition with you as comfortable as possible.

You got this! I look forward to working with you.

My time spent with Brian was brilliant, such a friendly and professional man who I can safely say will make anyone feel safe and be able to confide in, whilst also having a laugh, couldn’t recommend him enough

Brain is such a lovely man, his light humour in the sessions helps to make those difficult conversation that little bit easier. He’s so good and making sense of the thoughts you’re not able to put into words and get those words that you’re struggling to find. He is great and getting right into the root of a problem and not beating around the bush when finding these roots either. Fully recommend!

He's absolutely fantastic. He just tunned in straight away from the first session and deduced things without me having to provided extensive details. He's just the type of person you instantly connect with and he was very proactive with trying to understand my problems and help me figure things out in a non condescending or patronising way. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to have candid discussions in a friendly atmosphere.
