Hi, I'm Brian. Thanks for reaching out for help. As a social worker, I've been helping all different kinds of people for many years--from volunteering at a crisis counseling center to caring for adults with severe mental health conditions. My approach is pretty simple: YOU are the expert on you. In other words, I'm not here to tell you what's wrong with you. I'm here to listen to your story and help you identify your own strengths so you can live a more fulfilled, productive life. This person-centered approach emphasizes treating people with dignity, compassion and respect.
But enough about me. I'd enjoy the opportunity to hear your story. Thanks again for your time and consideration.

In just a few weeks time, Brian has done for me what I spent years trying to do for myself but never feeling like I had the tools to figure it out. My eyes are opened to new techniques, and thought processing. For once I have hope that I just might make it through all this healthier, both physically and especially mentally.

Brian is great! He's approachable, realistic, kind and engaging. He has consistently championed my progress and has made me feel like I can continue progressing independently.
