Brian Kjelvik

(LPC-MHSP)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider licensed in Tennessee with over 4 years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution-focused brief therapy and mindfulness. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

My current normal hours of operation are Monday - Friday from 6:30 am-3:00 pm. I may add more time depending on the week so always check my availability. Messages received I will do my best to reply to within a 24-hour time frame even on the weekend if possible.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to working with you!
