About me

Hi! My name is Brian Timms and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oklahoma with over 9 years experience working in the Mental Health field. I began my career working with people living with HIV/AIDS. I provided therapy for folks that were newly diagnosed as well as long term survivors. During my time with Tulsa CARES I worked with folks struggling with coming out, multiple addiction issues, lack of support system and issues relating to sex. I have been doing therapy part time as a Home Based Mental Health Therapist since 2013. I work with folks who are on Soonercare, which is the state of Oklahoma's medicaid program. I have worked with clients with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, career changes, ADHD, and other relationship issues.

I consider myself a person centered therapist who is warm and accepting of everyone. I respect others beliefs especially when different than mine. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, no matter what they are going through. I will meet you where you are and allow you to decide how we move forward.

Brian has been a great listener so far I’ve only had two sessions with him. But he has really been there for me in the last couple of weeks via chat. And has provided me with some resources and worksheets that have gave me great tips.
