Bruce is a thoughtful respectful counselor. He's extremely full-bodied and well experience in life and therapy. He has a way of holding a space and exploring the feelings that can help someone get beneath those feelings and understand the crux of what is going on within the mind, brain, and body. Bruce's guidance has been instrumental in integrating perspective, therapies and understanding that have helped tremendously in my self-confidence, grace, and understanding of myself within the context of my whole experience in life. He has been invaluable.

Bruce was a light in some very extreme darkness! I was having significant issues with depression, relationship issues, job issues and Bruce made me feel very comfortable unpacking it all. The listening alone was substantive, but the actionable tips and advisement on changing my perspective really helped to ground me back in reality and see all for which I have to be grateful. I HIGHLY recommend Bruce and, when/if I come back to BH, Bruce will be my go-to.

I have only had 3 sessions with Bruce, but I can tell at least for my neurodivergence, he is experienced in helping people like me.
