Happy gets to the point straightaway, doesn't mince words. He doesn't waste much time explaining what's wrong with you, he is rightaway focused on work required to navigate your challenge. Every single time I interact with him, there is a tremendous release of energy for the next few days and I get so much work done in the right direction.

Happy is the best. He helped me navigate a very complicated and difficult time in my life. He listened closely and asked me questions that really helped me to see situations in a new light. Things would have been really hard without his counseling. My self-esteem has never been better and I feel really good about my direction in life. Thank you so much Happy!!!

After decades of counseling/therapy with many different people with various degrees and approaches, Happy has led me to insights about myself to a depth that I have never experienced. He has helped me gain a sense of freedom from a prison that I didn’t even know I was in.

Written by C.H. on Jul 24, 2021 after therapy with Brian "Happy" for 1 month on issues concerning addictions, and adhd

Brian is an amazing listener, and very experienced dealing with people's shitty situations. He helped me with my addiction, and gave me a roadmap to how I should deal with it. His recommendations, thoughts and reflections on my behavior were very insightful, and were very honest. They helped me remain accountable, to him and to myself. Most importantly, he gave me a listening ear and I can't say enough good things about how helpful that was. All the actions to healing and recovery were or will be taken by me, but Brian was the wise guide that was there to encourage me every step of the way. Highly recommend him, thank you so much Brian!

I felt very confident talking to Brian right away. At first I was a bit nervous because it was over video chat and I have never done this before but Happy made me feel ver comfortable to talk about the reasons I was here.
Instead of doing chit chat he went right into the problem which I really appreciate so we could work on it and not waste time.
After the sessions I feel great being able to talk about everything that is going on and I rethink about what he said and how my life and past effect my current problems.
Very thankful for happy and better help.

He has helped me understand a lot about myself and when I ask him questions on what I can do to do better, he gives me a great answer. Not only is he helpful, but he's a very caring person and wants you to do your best.
