About me

Life forever changes, and the only option we have is to change with it! My practice is centered on client’s gaining new perspectives that drive personal change!

With over 10 years of experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of individuals, couples, and families! I believe that the client is the author of their story, which inherently gives them the power to recreate the narrative at any time. I work with clients to acknowledge patterns and perspectives, both conscious and unconscious, that play a role in keeping them engaged in cycles of negativity.

As a person of color, I understand how hard it can be to engage with the therapy process when you don’t feel culturally understood or represented.

As an African American male, I provide culturally competent therapy by engaging your story and understanding that the world associates different meanings to similar instances based on race, ethnicity, and culture. Through this work, it is my goal to instill trust in the mental health profession for people of color that may have had or heard of negative instances previously.

I believe that every client is unique, has a different experience, needs to be heard, and should not be satisfied with cookie cutter solutions. There are many ways of addressing your difficulties and making life better. Let me be a partner in finding what works for you on your journey towards a New Normal!

Brian asks all the right questions! I have had quality therapy experiences with other therapists in the past, but Brian has helped me make more progress in the the shortest amount of time. He is professional and easy to talk to. I am so thankful for his [Better] help!

When I signed up for BetterHelp, I had the expectation of receiving therapy that would be mediocre at best. Working with Brian Wicks quickly disabused me of that notion. He is both personable and professional. He laughs at my jokes and then can redirect me back to work on the hard stuff.
