Brian White

(MRC, LPC, CRC)

About Me

First and foremost, I believe in the power of positive psychology and in the ability of the human spirit to rise to the challenge presented. Research indicates that focusing on using one’s strengths has a more beneficial and longer lasting effect when facing life’s challenges.

I have education and training in psychology, sport psychology, physical fitness, coaching, rehabilitation (vocational) counseling and life. I am licensed by the State of Texas (72233) as a Licensed Professional Counselor and have obtained a national certification as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) giving me the ability to work across the fields of mental health, sport psychology and vocational counseling. I have worked with individuals and families looking to improve their lives and careers, recover from addictions, rehab for acquired brain injury (ABI) and those just looking to improve performance. I am qualified to provide formal assessment tools to guide your life decisions and careers.

It takes courage to seek for 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.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by M.I. on Jul 22, 2021 after counseling with Brian for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, self esteem, and adhd

I had the opportunity to spend more than a year working through some challenging topics with Mr. White. He is genuine, funny, and professional to name a few of the qualities I noticed.
I have learned about mindfulness and ways to incorporate it into my daily life.
I have learned to become more aware of my thoughts and emotions through cognitive behavioral therapy.
I have learned a great deal about improving my relationships, with my self and others.
I could go on, but I will stop there for now.
To be continued! :)

Brian is an amazing listener, calm and kind. He responds to what I need for each individual session, explains how feelings and thoughts work so I can understand what I am experiencing and going through from more than just an emotional point of view. He clearly has excellent training and is easy to understand with examples he provides. He sends informative articles or encouraging quotes and suggests small "assignments" that have been incredibly helpful. I look forward to each session.

I highly recommend Brian White as a good listener, a competent professional, and a caring person. In our two months so far, he has offered me a balanced combination of a patient, listening ear, while also offering solid, practical info (from current psychology) and insight that gets me thinking more productively during the time between our sessions.

My time talking with Brian has really helped me to develop skills that reduce the anxiety I was feeling in the beginning.
